Has anyone been hotter than Lakeville North?

The surprising Panthers are on a 13-game unbeaten streak (12-0-1) that began back in early December. Expected to contend for the Section 1AA title, North has instead made a state championship its No. 1 goal. Along the path, the Panthers have knocked off perennial powers such as Burnsville, Eden Prairie, Hill-Murray and Eagan. However, one of the only teams to beat the Panthers this season is Eastview, which opened the season with a 4-3 overtime win on Nov. 26.

Both the Panthers’ winning streak and Eastview’s success earlier this year help conspire to make this important South Suburban Conference matchup our top game of the week of Jan. 20-26, 2014.
