One year after Spring Lake Park ended Andover’s season with a one-point win, the roles were reversed as No. 2 seed Andover topped No. 3 Spring Lake Park 33-32 in overtime in the Section 4-5A championship game played at Andover Nov. 1.
Spring Lake Park continued to turn its season around with a 41-13 win at North St. Paul Sept. 27. Not only was the win the third in a row for the Panthers, but 41 points equals the previous week’s total (41-20 win against Robbinsdale Cooper).
A 21-point second quarter sparked Spring Lake Park (2-2) to its second win in as many weeks with a 41-20 over Robbinsdale Cooper Sept. 20. The Panthers offense was sparked by performances from running backs Grant Walter, Eji Ejiya and Richie Toweh.
