Rosemount was one of two teams to shut out Eagan in the regular season.
The Wildcats weren’t about to let that happen in the playoffs.
Eagan, the reigning Class 2A state champion and top-ranked team in the coaches' poll, earned a return trip to the state tournament by defeating Rosemount 4-1 Tuesday in the Section 3 championship at Burnsville High School. Alison Wong scored twice for the Wildcats.
