The St. Anthony Village High School football team this week is trading in Friday night lights for Saturday afternoon sunlight. The Huskies kick off at 1 p.m. at St. Paul Highland Park on Saturday as part of the Scots’ homecoming celebration.
There hasn’t been a lot to celebrate for the Irondale High School football team this season but homecoming week has arrived. Among the festivities on tap is the football game on Friday against Robbinsdale Armstrong.
The football teams from North High School and Hill-Murray both went winless through the first three weeks of the regular season. Regardless of what happened in week four, one of the two will have a victory after week five.
The home crowd didn’t have much to cheer during last year’s Roseville Area High School football season as the Raiders went 0-4 in home games. That has already changed in 2016 and there’s a good chance the Raiders could get on a roll at home.
“The Block” is the traveling trophy that the football teams from Irondale High School and Spring Lake Park High School battle for each year. It was created in 2011 but hasn’t spent much time in New Brighton.
