When the signs hit the highway, you know it's a Friday night in Minnesota. On this particular evening, Lakeville South headed north and took Burnsville downtown, capitalizing on turnovers to jump out 10-0 at the half.
With five starters out of the lineup after violating the MSHSL's alcohol policy, nobody was quite sure what this highly-ranked South team would accomplish on the road. They impressed. The offense moved the ball down the field, mixing in the running game of Logan Flannery and the throwing arm of Marcus Brumm.
The defense was equally impressive, holding Burnsville scoreless until late in the game. The Cougars start out the season 1-0 after a 23-14 win.
