We task our reporters with identifying several intriguing games throughout the state to assemble our Top Games of the Week. The matchups are presented in no particular order, and when there are additional games we want to highlight, we’ll include them with brief notes.
Rocori vs. Hutchinson, 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 30. Some of the shine from this one has worn off after defending Class 4A state champion No. 1 Hutchinson (3-1) had its 12-game win streak snapped at home against Becker. No. 2 Rocori (5-0) already thumped Becker this season but will have another chance to prove itself this week.
White Bear Lake vs. Stillwater, 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 30. White Bear Lake (3-1) has won three in a row by a 92-28 margin. No. 4 Stillwater (4-0) survived a close game to Centennial in Week 1 but has dominated the last three weeks. This is a rematch of a 35-27 Stillwater win in 2021.
