Other games to keep an eye on

Lakeville North vs. Lakeville South, 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 10. Nothing like an intra-city rivalry to kick off a new season. Lakeville North (0-0, 0-0), the defending Class 4A, Section 1 champion, and Lakeville South (0-0, 0-0) will be playing just their second game of the season by Wednesday.

North Branch vs. Chisago Lakes, 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 9. North Branch (1-0, 1-0), last season's Class 3A state tournament runner-up, looks to jump to a 2-0 start in the Mississippi 8 Conference against league foe Chisago Lakes (1-0, 1-0).

Chanhassen vs. Chaska, 4:30 p.m., Thursday, April 11. Chaska's home opener concludes a brutal first week after contests at New Prague and Benilde-St. Margaret's. Chanhassen (0-0, 0-0) travels to Buffalo on Tuesday before meeting the Hawks (0-0, 0-0) in this Metro West Conference rivalry.
