Key of the game: Credit to Maple Grove for a 95-yard scoring drive in the third quarter. The showstopper, however, was the go-ahead drive, featuring a pair of fourth-down conversions. Quarterback Brad Davison found receiver Teddy Raasch each time to extend the drive and Maple Grove's season.
Quote: "I told the guys at halftime, everyone go give [Curtis] Haugen a hug. He left us breathing." — Crimson coach Matt Lombardi on Haugen's interception late in the first half. Edina was threatening to add to its 17-6 lead at the time.
Worth noting: Edina coach Reed Boltmann took issue with two of the referees' calls on fourth down. One was a pass interference call on the Hornets in the end zone in the first half. The other was the spot where Raasch went out of bounds on the go-ahead drive.
