A year after winning only two games, the Roseville Area High School girls soccer team is set to open the section playoffs at home. The Raiders improved this season by seven victories over last year and that was good enough for the third seed in the Section 5AA playoffs, which start Tuesday.
One of the goals of the Roseville Area High School boys soccer team was to earn a home playoff game but a 0-2-1 finish to the regular season cost it that dream. Fortunately for the Raiders, this season's other main objective isn't affected by the seeds in the section tournament.
When push comes to shove in close games, the Roseville Area High School football team has tended to be the shoved rather than the shover. Last Friday's homecoming game against Woodbury was a different story, however.
Aside from a week one laugher, the Mounds View High School football team has been involved in all close games so far this season. So it might have come as a surprise when the Mustangs jumped out to a 14-point lead over Stillwater last Friday.
With one week left in the regular season, the chase for the Suburban East Conference boys soccer championship has become a three-team race. One of those teams is Mounds View but the Mustangs will need some help to move into the top spot.
