“They’re a private school, so that just motivates you more to beat them,” Flemmer said.

Declaring the victory against Breck a shift of power might be premature. The Mustangs still own five of the past six Class 1A, Section 2 titles and the 2009 and 2010 state titles.

But it’s the perfect start to Yoder’s vision.

“We’re very happy to get to the [state] tournament; it’s a good experience,” Yoder said. “But as far as our program goes, we want to be on top, and that’s the expectation moving forward.”

Edina, Eden Prairie advance

Two west-metro teams will be competing in the Class 2A state tournament.

Defending champion and top-seeded Edina will play Stillwater at 6 p.m. Thursday at Xcel Energy Center. The Hornets defeated Bloomington Jefferson 5-1 to win their section tournament.

No. 3-seeded Eden Prairie will play Centennial at 1 p.m. Thursday. The Eagles advanced to the state tournament with a 3-2 overtime victory against Benilde-St. Margaret’s on Feb. 26.
