Eagan showed why it is the top seed in the Class 2A state tournament with a dominant 2-0 victory over St. Michael-Albertville on Tuesday in a quarterfinal match at Prior Lake High School’s Dan Patch Stadium.

The Wildcats (17-0-3) possessed the ball in the Knights’ end for most of the game, but were often stymied by Knights sophomore goalkeeper Meriel Orham. Unofficial statistics had Orham making 10 saves.
