Another line of storms, another delay for high school lacrosse and golf state tournaments Tuesday afternoon.
Lightning and rain halted the girls' lacrosse tournament in Chanhassen after two games were completed. A few miles away, the boys' lacrosse tournament was delayed with Prior Lake leading the Blake School 11-0 late in the third quarter.
Both tournaments were delayed nearly two hours earlier in the day by weather. Minnesota State High School League regulations state an event must wait 30 minutes after lightning is spotted to resume play.
The remaining quarterfinal games in both tournaments have been moved to Wednesday. In girls' lacrosse, Cretin-Derham Hall will play Eden Prairie at 1 p.m. Maple Grove takes on Stillwater at 3 p.m. Both games will be at Chanhassen High School.
In boys' lacrosse, Wayzata plays Tartan at 11:30 a.m. and Eagan battles Lakeville North at 1:30 p.m. Both games are at Minnetonka High School. Officials planned to try and finish the Prior Lake-Blake game Wednesday evening.
The Class 2A golf tournament in Jordan suffered the most significant delays of the three held around the Twin Cities. The tournament stopped play in the morning and again in the afternoon.
The Class 3A tournament at Bunker Hills saw the girls complete their first round. The boys teed off after noon and most were still on the course when rain began to fall later in the day. The Class 1A tournament is being played in Becker.
Any rounds not completed on Tuesday are expected to be finished Wednesday morning.
Before the second delay, Eden Prairie's boys' lacrosse team defeated Anoka 11-5.
Eden Prairie junior Nick Leivermann considers former lacrosse teammate Sean Patterson a mentor. Leivermann did him proud Tuesday, scoring a state tournament single-game record eight goals.
“I really wouldn’t be where I am without him,” said Leivermann, who broke the previous record of six held by Patterson and two other players.
The No. 3 seed Eagles needed the performance. After state tournament newcomer Anoka (15-2) cut its deficit to 6-3, Leivermann revived Eden Prairie with three goals.
Downplaying his big day, Leivermann said, “I would have zero goals without the other guys on the field.” Not that teammates let him forget.
“A couple guys were joking, ‘Pass the ball,’” he said.
Eden Prairie (12-5) led 3-0 in the first quarter when lightning delayed the game at Minnetonka High School for one hour and 45 minutes.
“Coming out of the delay, they played a lot better,” Leivermann said. “We didn’t mentally prepare as well as we should have.”
In the girls' quarterfinals, The Blake School jumped off to an early lead and held off Lakeville South 12-10. In the second game, Prior Lake defeated Blaine 16-6, with the game ending in downpour.
