Football: Lakeville South vs. Bloomington Kennedy
SITE: Bloomington Stadium (90th St. and Penn Ave.)
TIME: 7:00 p.m. Friday
ON THE LINE
The bad news is, South fell to two games below the .500 mark overall (2-4) in a 12-0 home loss to Rosemount. The good news is, the Cougars face both Bloomington teams -- a combined 0-12 -- to finish out the regular season. While South hosts Jefferson in the pre-playoff finale next Wednesday, first up is a trip to face a Jefferson squad that has been outscored 229-57 this season.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Tight end Tyler Lattery leads the Cougars' receiving corps with 15 catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns, while running back Jordan Johnson continues to pace the ground attack with 90 carries for 574 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
Quarterback Joseph Carlson lines up behind center for Jefferson, with running back Dakota Mack leading the ground game.
WHO WILL WIN
Well, the "pick the opposite" theory was knocked for a loop last week, and we couldn't be happier -- since it'd be pretty silly calling for a Kennedy win this week. South wins in a walk, and by this time next week they'll be preparing for the playoffs with a .500 record.
