Lakeville North's football team began their run to state by thrashing Eagan in the first round of section play last Friday night.

The Wildcats, who went 1-7 in the regular season this year, gave up three touchdowns in each half, but rallied to score twice against Lakeville late in the game. The score was an improvement over the 49-0 drubbing Lakeville gave the Wildcats during a regular season game on Oct. 12.
