Game of the Week: North Hopes To Roar Back At Burnsville

Panthers play at Burnsville Friday night after getting stunned by Prior Lake last week.

THE GAME

Football: Lakeville North vs. Burnsville

CHEAT SHEET

SITE: Burnsville High School

TIME: 7:00 p.m. Friday

ON THE LINE

An unexpected thing happened last week on North's way to an unbeaten regular season -- a 10-6 loss to visiting Prior Lake that dropped the Panthers into a first-place tie with the Lakers and Apple Valley atop the South Suburban Conference standings. To keep things from getting out of hand, North must get back in the win column at Burnsville -- a team that lost 35-10 to Lakeville South last week.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

North

Quarterback Zach Creighton passed for 121 yards and ran for 45 more while wide receiver Lee Edwards logged 50 receiving yards, but it was kicker Hunter Cobb that accounted for all of North's points with field goals of 25 and 35 yards.

Lakers

Quarterback Will Reger passed for 292 yards, while wide receiver Tyler Hanson tallied 92 receiving yards in last week's loss to South.

WHO WILL WIN

Well, last week's logic of North beating able to beat a team that South had topped earlier in the year went down the drain with the Prior Lake loss. That said, it is difficult to figure lightning striking twice -- North makes it a Lakeville sweep over the Blaze this week.
