Top-ranked Edina completed a three-game sweep of Minnetonka, capped by a dramatic 2-1 Class 2A semifinal victory Friday at Xcel Energy Center.
No. 1 seed Edina (26-4) advances to Saturday’s state tournament championship game to face Brained/Little Falls. The Hornets are looking to become just the second program to win three consecutive state championships.
Defender Vivian Jungels, a ninth-grader who verbally committed to Minnesota, scored the game’s first goal in the first period. It looked like it might be the game’s only goal.
