October 13, 2013In Class 5A, seven teams have made it to very near the end of the season without a loss. They are: Brainerd, Chaska, Owatonna, Rogers, St. Michael-Albertville and St. Paul Central, and they are all 7-0. Brainerd has 0-7 Grand Rapids coming up. Grand Rapids has had a terrible season and if they could break Brainerd's perfect record, Hollywood will be calling to make a movie for them. Brainerd has a solid chance to finish undefeated. I'll go with Brainerd in this contest. Chaska faces 1-6 New Prague for their final outing. This looks like another perfect record is pretty much in the bag for Chaska. I pick Chaska. Owatonna represents the Big 9 conference, which actually has 10 teams, go figure. They face a 5-2 Big 9 confederate, Rochester John Marshall. JM is coming off two consecutive wins - Faribault in a close 35-28 game, and a big win over Rochester Century at 35-7. Their two losses are to a 6-1 Mankato West and Rochester Mayo, who stands at 5-2. Owatonna defeated West and Mayo earlier in their season. This one looks like another win for the Huskies and a perfect record going into sections. I pick Owatonna. Next up we have a game against two undefeated 5A teams - Neighbors - Rogers and St. Michael-Albertville. Let's look at some stats: Rogers wins their games by a little over 34 points, STMA by about 20. Rogers is first in their 5A for points scored at nearly 50 points per game! STMA is not in the top 20. However, STMA holds their opponents to less than 9 points per game. Rogers is in the middle of the class allowing around 15 per game. Rogers played Big Lake in their last outing and won 41-24. STMA defeated Big Lake 28-0 earlier in the season. I'm going with Rogers in this one, but they are going to have to have their offense playing very well. We finish up with a city school - St. Paul Central. Central faces 2-5 Como Park for their final game. I'm picking Central for this one. It looks like we could have six teams in 5A finish with perfect seasons.
