Prior Lake suffered a surprising 4-1 loss to South Suburban Conference foe Eastview on Saturday, meaning a blemish to fellow Class 2A, Section 2 resident Holy Family Catholic on Tuesday would further chip away at the No. 7-2A Lakers’ claim to the section’s top seed.
Senior Preston Lindholm and junior Matt Beaty are among a group of five Prior Lake (13-5-3, 8-4-2) players with 10 or more goals. The other three scoring leaders — Will Schumacher, Alex Bump and Sam Rice — are all sophomores.
Holy Family Catholic (12-9-0, 6-1-0) is coming off an exciting 4-3 overtime victory over Cloquet-Esko-Carlton on Saturday. Senior Lucas Jorgenson, who leads the Fire with 36 points, scored the winner. Trey Fechko, who ranks among the state’s top sophomores, is the Fire's leader in goals with 18.
