Editor’s note: In observance of the Easter holiday, we will not be publishing Top Games the week of Sunday, April 21. As a result, our writers have included two weeks worth of games for the April 15 edition.






Other games to keep an eye on

Holy Angels vs. Benilde-St. Margaret's, 4 p.m., Tuesday, April 16. Benilde-St. Margaret's (0-0, 0-0) gets Holy Angels (2-0, 1-0) on its home field in a rematch of a Class 3A state tournament consolation semifinal. Holy Angels won that game 9-3.

Maple Grove vs. Minnetonka, 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 19. Host Minnetonka (1-0, 0-0) might find Maple Grove (3-0, 3-0) an ungracious guest. The Crimson have scored 40 runs in their first three games.

Hastings vs. Mahtomedi, 4:15 p.m., Tuesday, April 16. Senior pitcher Kayla Simacek has 33 strikeouts and Hastings has outscored opponents 29-3 in a 3-0 Metro East Conference start. Mahtomedi (2-1-1, 2-0-1), which has a tie with North St. Paul and a one-run loss to 2018 Class 4A state tournament participant Edina, should be a good test for the Raiders.
