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.
A pair of unbeatens met last week in a Metro East Conference volleyball showdown and the match did not disappoint. North downed Hill-Murray in five games to take sole possession of first place in the conference standings.
It is only the third conference match of the season but it already looks like a possible showdown. The Roseville Area High School volleyball team travels to Cretin-Derham Hall on Sept. 27 with first place on the line.
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.
