This season we’ll have a weekly segment called “The Big One” where we feature a game with post-game articles and/or analysis including video from our friends at Coon Rapids Sports on YouTube.  Our next “Big One” of the 2010 season will be the Mounds View vs Wayzata semifinal State 5A playoff game on Saturday, November 20th (8:15pm) @ Metrodome.

The Wayzata Trojans (9-0) enter this game undefeated.  They’ve beaten three other State 5A qualifying teams (Lakeville South, Eden Prairie, Blaine) by an average score of 36-16 and their defense has shutout their three playoff  opponents.  They have speed.  They have skill.  They have coaching.  How can they lose?  The Mounds View Mustangs (10-1) enter this game on a high having avenged their only loss of the season to Cretin-Derham Hall by holding them to just 7 points in a 21-7 win.  Like Wayzata the Mustangs have dominated their three playoff opponents beating them by an average score of 34-9.  They have some speed.  They have some skill.  They have some coaching.  But do they have enough to knock off the top-ranked Wayzata Trojans and secure a spot in the Minnesota State 5A Championship game?  We’ll find out Saturday night.
