Pines girls soccer prepares for sectional final
EAGLE RIVER - Northland Pines fought their way through three playoff games to reach the sectional final, including two against opponents that were ranked higher than the three-seed Eagles.

The Eagles pulled their biggest upset yet Monday, knocking off top-seeded Assumption 4-2.

Northland Pines raced out to a 3-0 lead in the first half and held on to that advantage through a late Assumption rally.

Playing higher-seeded teams can be intimidating, but Northland Pines' fearless attitude has set them apart.

"We were confident in the last two games we could win," head coach Larry Favorite said. "And you know what, we have to go on the road and we're under-seeded, but that's OK. That was our attitude. Let's just go beat them on the grass. Paper doesn't matter, it's what happens on the grass."

Northland Pines plays on the road against St. Mary Saturday at 7 p.m.
