Twelve months ago, Spring Lake Park walked off the field at Andover in tears with heads down after a 33-32 loss in overtime.
This year, as the No. 1 seed of Section 4-5A, Spring Lake Park celebrated its third section title under head coach Jeff Schlieff after a 28-11 win against Mahtomedi.

Two weeks earlier, Spring Lake Park handed Andover a 35-14 loss in the first and perhaps only Northwest Suburban Conference meeting after meeting in the section tournament each of the last two seasons. Each team won a section game by one point including the Huskies 33-32 win over Spring Lake Park last fall.

Spring Lake Park’s woes against rival Totino-Grace continued Friday night after a two-point conversion attempt fell short in a 34-33 loss in overtime. Totino-Grace had a chance to end the game in the final minute but missed a 26-yard field goal. The drive was set up after Eagles cornerback Luke Russel intercepted a pass from Panthers quarterback Derek Salwei with seven minutes left in regulation.
