All six Bulletin-area prep soccer teams have reached the final week of the regular season. The section playoffs begin next week so for most of them this week provides a final tune-up prior to the post-season.
The leaves have barely begun to change in the metro area yet the end of the high school football regular season is already upon us. Here’s a look at where the Bulletin-area teams sit heading into week eight.
The St. Anthony Village High School football has enjoyed considerable success against Brooklyn Center over the years. Heading into last week's match-up, the Huskies had lost just once to the Centaurs since 2004.
The St. Anthony Village High School football team posted a season high for points in a game last week against St. Paul Highland Park but it wasn't enough to get the Huskies their first win of the season.
With the meat of its schedule complete, the Irondale High School football team has possibly its most winnable game of the season on the docket this Friday. Coincidentally, it is also homecoming for the Knights.

The Mounds View High School football team is nothing if not consistent this fall. Through five games, the Mustangs are averaging 24.6 points per game and their point total has been in the 20s each time.
