The Totino-Grace attack started quickly and never relented. Even if it took until the 17th minute for the Eagles to notch their first goal, Chisago Lakes (16-4-1) spent nearly all of its time trying to clear the ball out of its own end.

Steevenson Lamarre got the Eagles started when, after teammate Herbert Endeley slipped him a pass, the sophomore blasted his shot past Chisago Lakes goalie Reece Lawlor.

Endeley, a junior, scored in 25th minute when he danced around two defenders before powering in his shot from only a few yards out.
With under a minute to play in the first half, Endeley won back possession near midfield before dribbling around a host of Wildcats into the box. His shot was saved, but the rebound ricocheted to Lamarrre, who tapped in his second goal.

Totino-Grace coach William Vance said forwards Endeley and Lamarre mesh well and create chances for one another. Endeley said it’s been that way since Lamarre played his first varsity game as a freshman late last season.

“It didn’t take us very long because we played together last year when we got pulled up to varsity,” Endeley said. “As soon as we played our first game, there was a lot of chemistry between us and it gets better every single game.”

Matthew Hagen scored the Eagles’ final goal in the second half, heading in a cross from Luke Lindsay.

Totino-Grace (17-1-1) will play in the Class 1A semifinal at noon Monday at U.S. Bank Stadium against Orono.
