It kicks off tonight at three different schools across Minnesota. There are some really good teams in this tournament. Moorhead is good, Owatonna is coming in from the South, and then of course there’s the number one seed: Stillwater.
Stillwater went 19-0-0 this season, including the three-game section finals tournament that gained them entry to the state tourney. Stillwater is led by Miguel Caravais, who has netted 23 goals in 18 games. That’s good. That’s really good, especially considering Stillwater is in the Suburban East conference, with some powerhouse teams like North St. Paul, whom they defeated 2-1 in the section final.
Stillwater plays tomorrow- Wednesday- at Benilde-St. Margaret at 7:30 PM. Tickets are cheap, like $10, so get over there and check out the best team in MN high school soccer.
Until then, Wilderness, enjoy this heart-wrenching tune from one of my favorite young singer-songwriters.
