SABERS WIN IF...
senior quarterback Hoffman brings another strong performance. He rushed for a season-best 155 yards against Northfield. He also plays defensive back and is the team’s punter. The winner of this game faces the winner of Minnetonka/Minneapolis Southwest Saturday.
STORM WIN IF...
They can continue their strong second half play. The Storm has won four straight games to tie for third place in the Missota Conference. Their record is a bit misleading as their four losses were to teams with a combined 27-5 mark. They lost by just two points to first-place Shakopee and second place Holy Angels and fell to Big Nine runner-up Owatonna in the season opener.
