State Tournament Summary
By MSHSL  Staff
The No. 3-seeded Lightning of Eastview (15-2-5) won their first state title in their second consecutive and overall appearance with a 3-2 victory over the unseeded Bengals of Blaine (16-4-1) who had advanced to the title tilt with a quarterfinal victory over top-seeded Champlin Park and a semifinal win over fifth-seeded Bloomington Jefferson. The score was 2-1 in favor of Eastview with just less than 20 minutes to play in the first half. And the score remained that way for nearly 40 more minutes. The game-winner was scored by senior midfielder Jacob Opheim on a pass from junior midfielder Pierce Erickson at 63:44. About three minutes earlier Blaine had evened the score when a blocked shot by Zach Brunko fell right to the feet of senior midfielder Zachary Wright who put it in. Senior defender Michael Stockton opened the scoring for Eastview by heading in a pass from junior defender Sam Fluegge just two minutes and 12 seconds into the game. Exactly four minutes later Blaine senior midfielder Ian Durbin rattled a shot off the post that senior forward Mitch Boege then scored on the rebound. At 19:59 Eastview went back on top when Opheim headed a ball into an empty net on a long ball into the box from Fluegge.
