Stuart Arkley further told police that his wife used a five-gallon gas can to spread gasoline throughout the house; he jumped out a window and fled to a neighbor’s home to call 911. After firefighters from the Apple Valley and Rosemount fire departments spent the morning battling the blaze, Apple Valley Fire Chief Nealon Thompson declared the home a “total loss.” In May, the Apple Valley City Council ordered that the fire-ravaged split-level home adjoining Tintah Park be demolished because it posed a threat to public health.

Rosemount law enforcement training center may reach 5,000 goal this year by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

An anonymous building once slated for demolition off Highway 55 in Rosemount is making a big difference in how safe people are in Dakota County, the state, nation and even Canada.

Apple Valley teen orchestrates Halloween extravaganza Eastview senior Brock Knutson employs special effects wizardry for once-a-year event by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Brock Knutson is all about Halloween. The Eastview High School senior took the day off school Monday, Oct. 31, to create a special effects-heavy Halloween display in the front yard of his Apple Valley home. In addition to an assortment of store-bought ghouls, zombies and tombstones, he employed fog machines, stage lights, a sound board, three laptop computers and several giant speakers to achieve maximum eeriness. His mom, Chris, and grandmother, Carol, helped erect the grim tableau on the property at County Road 42 and Garden View Drive. “It started off as a little General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

thing with him as a kid. It just got bigger and bigger,” Chris said of the annual display. “Come July, he’s already thinking about it. He tries doing the yard different every year.” Knutson logged long hours the day of the big show. He began readying the yard at 7 a.m., including stringing “caution” tape around the perimeter. The Pontiac minivan he shares with his mom was adorned with cobwebs, a skull hung from the license plate, and the front seats were occupied by two skeletons. Plastic rats, giant insects and body parts were scattered around the yard. By late afternoon, he was ready to welcome trick-ortreaters into his vortex of simulated horrors. Based on last year’s numbers, he an-

ticipated 300-400 visitors. The homemade creepfest was one-day-only – the plan was to begin disassembly mid-evening, having the entire yard cleared of all decorations by midnight. Knutson, who said he hopes to pursue a career as a lighting designer, has been honing his audio-visual wizardry as a member of the tech crew in Eastview’s theater department. Halloween is hands-down his favorite holiday – it provides an opportunity to show off his special-effects savvy. “It gives me the ability to creep people out and scare ’em,” he said. “It’s a lot of work but I get personal satisfaction out of it.”

Stellar units are designed to deliver maximum decorative value even when the flame is on low and using fewer BTUs, Sloan said. Fireplaces, the company insists, are fun. “We decided when we started, we were going to be different,� he said. Stellar now offers two models of “linear,� flat-wall fireplaces. Next year it will introduce two corner units, a modern and a traditional. With triangular fireboxes that better fit corner spaces, the units consume less space from front to back than traditionally shaped corner fireplaces while also maintaining a larger viewing area, the company says. The units won two industry awards — known as the Vestas — in March at the Hearth, Patio and BBQ Association Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah. “We don’t want to be just another me-too manufacturer,� Sloan said. “We really want to hang our hat on innovation.� Web addresses for the companies are www.bigwoodshearth.com and www.stellarhearth.com.

Lights out for Eagan restaurant

Thomas gets 4 years in shooting death

by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Joe Senser’s Restaurant and Sports Theater in Eagan closed suddenly on Oct. 30. Shades cover the windows of the dark restaurant at 3010 Eagandale Place and a closed sign is taped to the doors. “We’re shocked and saddened by this,� said Gerry Goldfarb, manager of the Hampton Inn in Eagan. “It was a very popular location with our guests.� Joe Senser’s provided room service for the hotel, which is located nearby. Its closure has left Hampton staff scrambling to find other options for its guests, Goldfarb said. “I’m hoping that the current owner of the land or

the city of Eagan will find a new restaurant to go there,� he said. City Administrator Tom Hedges said he is confident a new restaurant will fill the empty building. “Both our Eagan convention and business bureau have been attempting to reach out to the owner of the property and offer help anyway they can,� Hedges said. The recent news took city officials by surprise as well. “We were not aware that they were even considering closing the restaurant,� he said. “Joe Senser’s has been a valued restaurant in Eagan for the past 13 years.� The sports bar and grill opened in 1998 and was among four Twin Cities locations owned by former Vikings player Joe Senser. It is unclear whether employees will be absorbed by

the Bloomington, Plymouth or Roseville locations. Mike Hrudka, director of operations for Joe Senser’s, told the Star Tribune that the bar closed due to the tough economy. He also noted the restaurant’s location requires many turns to get into its parking lot, according to the report. A sign on the building says gift cards can be redeemed at other Joe Senser locations. The closure follows recent criminal charges against Senser’s wife. Amy Senser was charged with vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run incident that

The Sensers waited several days before coming forward and admitting that the family vehicle was involved in the incident. Authorities were not satisfied with their cooperation, according to recent reports.

Sharon LaComb sets an example for us all to follow by Bill Tschohl SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Communities thrive because of role models who provide examples for our children to follow and aspire to be. Sharon LaComb is one of those people, and I wanted to take the opportunity to commend her on the extensive volunteer work she has done in Dakota County and reflect on the many ways she has made a positive impact in our community. Sharon started her professional career as an English teacher and worked her way up to the position of vice president of Dakota County Technical College, where she just recently retired after 25 years. Just this past year, as execu-

tive director of the DCTC Foundation, she raised over $1 million for educational scholarships for students at DCTC. Her goal was to fund scholarships for â&#x20AC;&#x153;education for employmentâ&#x20AC;? to help students during this particularly difficult economic time. This fund will provide assistance for students years after Sharon has retired and is an amazing legacy for the community. Sharon has also dedicated herself to helping others obtain education outside of her work. As a past president of the Apple Valley Rotary she raised money for the community through dinners, car raffles and go-cart races and is always the first to volunteer to help with events that give

back directly to the community. She believes in â&#x20AC;&#x153;hands-onâ&#x20AC;? volunteering and dedicates her time to ensuring events are successful so that the greatest number of community members can benefit. During the past five months Sharon has helped spearhead the annual car raffle for the Apple Valley Rotary Scholarship Foundation. She helped organize the fundraiser together with Patrick Selchow and Clint Hooppaw netting the club over $33,000 to support the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charitable giving. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important than ever that communities have adults who give back. Sharon is one of those people and she has made our community a better place by engaging in so many aspects of

community. She has volunteered in the Community Action Programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Head Start program to ensure educational opportunities are available for even the youngest members of our community and has continued this volunteerism through the K-12 system as a mentor with the STRIVE program at the local high school. It would be difficult to find a community organization that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been made a better one by Sharon. The local YMCAs, chambers of commerce, Community Action Council, and even School District 196 have all benefited directly by her volunteerism on their many committees, groups and foundations. Additionally, she is a current officer on Dakota Future and served on the Apple Valley City Council.

Sharon is passionate about our community, education and helping others and has dedicated her entire professional career and personal life to it. I consider myself extremely fortunate to live and work in the same community as Sharon and know so many others who feel the same way. The legacy she has built is amazing and benefits she has directly provided for the educational community are indescribable. I am confident that Sharon will continue to be a leader in our community and, as in the past, continue to give of herself. Sharon serves as an example for us to follow. Bill Tschohl is an Apple Valley Rotary member.

Some tips about increasing family involvement in schools by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Professor Joyce Epstein has a number of startling, research-based views on family involvement. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming to Minneapolis to share her ideas and suggestions in a free, public presentation on Nov. 10. Epstein, director of the Center on School, Family, and Community Partnerships, is a fine speaker, and has been asked to share her research throughout the world. Here are several key things she has discovered: â&#x20AC;˘ The best predictor of family involvement in city schools is not the income, race, or marital status of the family. The best predictor of family involvement is what the school and educators do to promote it. She has lots of examples

of what schools can and are doing to encourage family involvement. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share some of this on Nov. 10. â&#x20AC;˘ There are six different forms of family involvement. They have a different impact on students. For example, volunteering in your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school does not necessarily improve the achievement of your own child. Neither does serving on a school committee. Both are valuable in other ways. But these forms of involvement wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily produce higher achievement for your own child. â&#x20AC;˘ The form of family involvement that does the most to improve student achievement is to help families understand what they can do at home to improve a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skills. Many of these

things can be fun, like going to a grocery store and practicing basic math skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better bargain, two half gallons of milk at $2 each, or a gallon that costs $3.50?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Family involvement through high school has great benefits for students. It helps produce better attendance, grades, behavior, and attitudes. Again, what the school does to help families can and has produced more family involvement. â&#x20AC;˘ Each school should have a team that produces a yearly family involvement plan. The school leader should be a part of this team, and it should have a budget to help carry out its activities. The team should include some parents and in a high school, some students.

ter has produced many materials that schools can share with families to help them with their children. Some of the best use the federal government has made of our taxes has been to support Epsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work for more than 20 years. She calls these TIPS (Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork). To read the TIPS, go online at www.csos. jhu.edu/p2000/tips/index.htm. Schools can learn from each other. Currently more than 1,000 schools, 100 school districts and 17 state departments of education are part of the National Network of Partnership Schools that Epstein and her colleagues have created. Epstein will be speaking at 6 p.m. Nov. 10, at North High School, 1500 James Ave. in Minneapolis. Several groups, including the Center for School Change

(where I work), Minneapolis Public Schools, Growth and Justice, MinnCan and the Department of Organizational Leadership at the University of Minnesota are cosponsoring this. Seating is limited. Minnesota Commissioner of Education Brenda Cassellius will provide a welcome. Please RSVP if you want to attend by emailing csc@macalester. edu.

Age 89 of Farmington passed away on 10/24/2011. Preceded in death by husbands Robert Trevis and Walter Trevis, brother Frank Meier, sister Elizabeth Otterness, and Grandchildren Monica Haugley and Ryan Sauer. Survived by children Robert (Marcia), Gary (Cheryl), Janine (Wayne) Dahmes, James (Chris), Walter (Carolyn), Diane (Jeff) Oesterreich, Edward (Paula), and Marilyn (Mike) Sauer; 14 Grandchildren; and 13 Great Grandchildren. Mass of Christian Burial was Thursday, October 27, 2011 at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church, 13900 Biscayne Ave., Rosemount, MN. Interment, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cemetery. Born June 8, 1922, Marie grew up in a family of five near Hastings, MN, during the Great Depression. She married Robert Trevis in 1942. They had one son, Robert Jr. During World War II, Robert was killed, and Marie later married her first husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Walter. They raised their eight children on a small dairy farm south of Rosemount, MN, and lived their last 30 years in a house built by their children across the road from the farm. They became known for their large garden, and people came to pick strawberries or buy the small bunches of Indian corn that Marie knotted every fall. Marie and Walter traveled in their golden years, and enjoyed trips to Hawaii, the Canadian Rockies and Italy. Marie cherished her long friendships with relatives, neighbors and friends. To her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Marie created a safe and loving home. She passes onto them her wonderful traits - unconditional love, generosity, honesty, goodness and her desire to dance. Above all, Marie was a loving wife to Walter. Their marriage was an inspiration to all that witnessed it. For 64 years they loved, laughed and held hands. And now they are holding hands for eternity. Memorials to St. Joseph Catholic Church.

energy up is both rewarding and exhausting. You are cast as a member of law enforcement. Do you think you make a good cop? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would make a particularly good cop. I like the problemsolving aspect, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about the stress, dealing with angry people and handling dangerous situations. I give law enforcement a lot of credit. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also far too tempted to play with my fake gun, which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing is a nono in real life. What can people expect to see if they attend â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bat Boyâ&#x20AC;?? They can expect, quite simply, a fun show. There are a lot of great characters, there is a lot of heart, a lot of humor and ultimately a great message about accepting others even if they are different. Looks like from the photo and review that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a naked member of the cast. How is that dealt with on stage? What has been audience reaction? The story is about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bat boyâ&#x20AC;? being found in a cave, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to a department store down there. So the show does begin with some nudity. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spoil how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handled, but I will say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that adds to the realism of the situation but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blatantly Tad Johnson is at editor. obvious to the audience. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

But it is a part of the show. What is your theater background? I grew up in Iowa. My mother was a drama and English teacher and my dad built all of her sets. I first appeared in a production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carouselâ&#x20AC;? at 6 months old. I literally grew up with it, and was often thrown in whenever a kid was needed for something. As I got older, I gravitated more toward singing, performing in some of the top choral groups in Iowa. I still consider myself a singer, but when I moved to the Twin Cities in 2000, the local theater community was a great way to meet new people and only have to commit about two months of time to a project. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go from show to show, but I try to do one or two a year. Feel free to add anything else you think might be of interest to local readers. Supporting companies like Minneapolis Musical Theatre and other organizations around the Cities is important, because most of us do this simply because we love it. And I think that comes across on stage. They might not have the best of everything, but these people work, shop, and live right next to you and put it all out there every night. I believe that deserves some applause.

by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For three years, Brad Heywood has played a vital behind-the-scenes role with the Lakeville-based community theater group Expressions. As the all-purpose â&#x20AC;&#x153;tech guy,â&#x20AC;? heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handled lighting, sound and other nuts-and-bolts aspects of about a half dozen productions. Now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaving the quiet anonymity of the control booth and stepping into the spotlight. The Lakeville resident and IT specialist by profession is making his stage debut this month in Expressionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; holiday play â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Better Watch Out.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new experience and a challenge,â&#x20AC;? Heywood said. In the booth, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can be up there reading a book and just hit a button when I need to. Now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to focus and make sure I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t screw up my lines.â&#x20AC;? Heywood plays Mr. Smith in â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Better Watch Out,â&#x20AC;? a character who as the show progresses is revealed to be Santa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a role to which Heywood says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-suited. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did Santa for my kids when they were little â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even got my own Santa suit, though I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fit into it anymore,â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planned on auditioning for the part. According to the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Andy Wilkins, the actor originally cast as Mr. Smith decided the drive-time to Lakeville was getting to be too much, and dropped out of the show about a week into rehearsals. In stepped Heywood, who said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been toying with the idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;taking the plungeâ&#x20AC;? into acting for some time. His only prior acting experience was a theater class he took while attending Robbinsdale Armstrong High School. The students didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perform before an audience,

City â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on housing project Bust nets pound of marijuana Bonds issued to cover up-front construction costs that will be paid back by D.R. Horton For several years when the housing market was booming, the city didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be the banker in such projects, City Finance Director Jeff May said, but now it is more difficult for builders to obtain financing. Another upshot of the project is that a local bank was part of the low bid among six. United Bankers Bank and the First State Bank of Rosemount combined to submit the low bid. To find out more about the D.R. Horton development located at 14178 Abbeyfield Ave., call (952) 985-7849. The company is taking home site reservations.

With a lackluster economy having battered the housing market, Rosemount has gone back to doing business the old way. The City Council approved on Tuesday, Nov. 1, the issuance of $2.08 million in bonds to fund street and utility improvements to serve the future development of homes in Prestwick Place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a D.R. Horton project. The city acting as the conduit through which road and utility work is covered up-front and then repaid entirely over time by the developer is a practice that was common prior to the years of rapid development when buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bank accounts were flush with cash. Tuesday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action

is just another sign of the times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and this one has benefits. Repayment of the bonds will be at a five-year low interest rate of 1.15 percent, which is 0.14 lower than projected just a week ago, according to Teri Heaton of Springsted Inc., the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial adviser. The city of Rosemount will have road and utility improvements paid for and see its tax base grow as 56 new single-family homes are built near the northwest corner of County Road 42 and Akron Avenue. D.R. Horton will have itself a new housing development, called Prestwick Place, that will go up in two phases. Homes are touted as starting in the low $300,000s (www.drhorton. com).

The day of the scheduled sale, Task Force agents and Burnsville Police officers maintained surveillance of the area where the transaction was to take place. Officers conducted a traffic stop on Haileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on grounds it violated window tint laws â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and found 446 grams of marijuana (about a pound) in a pink bag



by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

An Apple Valley man was charged with a felony last week after he allegedly arranged to sell a pound of marijuana to a police informant. Police say Yonas B. Haile, 26, had agreed to sell the marijuana to an informant with the Dakota County Drug Task Force at a location in Burnsville on June 16.

Thomas/from 3A disputes is never appropriate,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said in a news release after the sentencing by Judge Timothy McManus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of picking up a gun, Thomas could have easily picked up a phone and called 911.

Had he done so, this tragedy never would have occurred.â&#x20AC;? A noisy altercation between the two men began after Thomas discovered that Koenig had Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 13-year-old son take pictures of him shirtless. Koenig, who struck body-building poses in the photos, said

he wanted a new picture for his Facebook page. Both Thomas and Koenigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend confronted Koenig about the photos, which they deemed inappropriate. As the argument escalated, Thomas went to get the gun. He was holding the gun and ordering Koenig

to leave when Koenig, who had been taunting Thomas and threatening to take the gun, lunged at him, according to the criminal complaint. Thomas, who had asked another man at the party to call 911, then fired. The man had dialed 911, and hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;sendâ&#x20AC;? after the gun went

off, according to the complaint. The county attorney originally charged Thomas with intentional seconddegree murder. A grand jury indicted him instead on charges of unintentional second-degree murder while committing a felony, second-degree manslaugh-

ter, intentional discharge of a firearm and endangering another, and reckless discharge of a firearm in a municipality. John Gessner is at burnsville. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

The Eagan football team has a chance to do something this Friday night that no other Wildcat team has done. That’s win a section title and play at the state tournament. All they have to beat is one team: Cretin-Derham Hall. For the third straight year, Eagan will travel to St. Paul for the section playoffs. Any mention of the Raiders makes Eagan players grumble. Every football player enters a game with a plan to win, but Eagan’s desire beat Cretin-Derham Hall is passionate. For some, the Raiders seem like an unstoppable force. Former quarterbacks have gone on to win NCAA national championships (Steve Walsh), the Heisman Trophy (Chris Wienke), and even Major League Baseball MVPs (Joe Mauer). Recently the Raiders had the No. 1 recruit in the

country (Seantrel Henderson) and wide receiver who is currently one of the top college players in the country (Michael Floyd). Eagan hasn’t backed down. In 2009, Eagan was in the midst of its best season in years. The Wildcats fell one point short of a Halloween miracle at St. Thomas, losing to Cretin-Derham Hall 21-20. The team was set to tie the game late and elected to go for two points and the win. It didn’t work, and the Raiders went on to win the state title. To beat Cretin-Derham Hall, sometimes you need to go for two. The last time the Raiders didn’t advance to state is when Lakeville South converted a twopoint conversion late to win in 2006. Last year, Eagan and the

Raiders met in the section playoffs. It wasn’t quite as close. Eagan had a 14-13 lead, but gave up 10 points late to lose 23-14. It’s no surprise this year that the Raiders are undefeated, averaging 35 points per game while giving up less than eight. In order to advance to state, Cretin will have to beat one of the hottest teams. Eagan has won six of its last seven games with the one loss coming against Prior Lake on a blustery night. Leading up to the section final, Eagan has scored 113 points in wins over Minneapolis Southwest and Woodbury. One would be hard pressed to find another team playing better right now than the Wildcats.

Lightning back in the section final Eastview qualified for the Section 3-5A final for the fifth year in a row after defeating Rosemount 49-13 on Oct. 29. It’s quite the accom-

plishment considering on Oct. 14 Eastview was 2-5 looking at playing an away game in the section quarterfinals. It was a bit of an upset with Rosemount coming in as the No. 1 seed and Eastview at No. 4, but with rivalries like this, you can often throw out the record. The story of the game was turnovers. Rosemount gave it up five times, three fumbles and two interceptions, while Eastview held on to the ball. The game was never close. Eastview took a 21-0 early lead thanks to two touchdown runs by LeAndre Kennedy and one by Eric Krupke. The Lightning put 21 more points on the board in the third quarter to put the game out of reach with two Krupke runs and a 47yard pass from Ryan Reger to Adam Moorse. Eastview had lost three in a row to Rosemount including a 28-21 game on Oct. 14, but since then the Lightning have done noth-

ing but win, outscoring opponents 124-20 in its last three games. The Lightning will make the trip to Prior Lake on Friday to take on the No. 2 seed in Section 3-5A for the right to go to state. The Lakers (7-3) defeated Bloomington Jefferson and Kennedy by a combined 7310 to get to this point. While Prior Lake has been in the same conference as Eastview for two seasons, the two teams have yet to play. The only meeting between the two was in 2007 with Eastview winning 3813 in the section playoffs. The Lakers like to run the ball with Jake Kaiser, who averages 114 yards per game. They don’t allow many points either, giving up on average two touchdowns per game. Prior Lake has never advanced to the state tournament while Eastview’s last trip was in 2009.

assists. “Our first eight, nine minutes I think we were a little nervous,” Soderholm said. “This was a wonderful way to do it. We’re happy. I think (Centennial) is a little better than the score. We knew we could to it. We kept the ball on the ground and passed it around. We’re playing really well right now.” Teams have had a hard time stopping Blahnik, who had more than 33 goals before the state final. Bailly Drayton, Abby Soderholm and Tiana Khamvongsa are part of the scoring machine that finished third in the South Suburban Conference and won the Section 2AA title beating Edina 2-1. “We all play as a team,” Blahnik said. “We all get along really well. We all played together previously, and it just came together this season.” While the offense averaged more than three goals per game, it was the defense that grew the most during the past month. “Our average shots on net is like five,” Blahnik said. “Our defense has done a really good job keeping goals out of our net.” On offense, it’s just second nature. If they stick to their game, they can move the offense in their sleep. “We just click,” Blahnik said. “We know each other really well.” The state final result was unavailable at presstime.

The Burnsville girls soccer team burst on to the scene in a big way during 2011. Qualifying for state for the first time since 1996, the Blaze advanced all the way to the state final on Thursday with a young team. The early 1990s were a special time for girls soccer in Burnsville. The girls won state titles in 1992 and 1993 and they were runner-up in 1991. In the past 15 years, Burnsville has had some exciting times, but Section 2AA has proved to be a tough nut to crack in recent years with teams from Edina and Eden Prairie standing in the way. But 2011 turned out to be the year of the Blaze. With just four losses during the regular season, Burnsville was one of the best teams in the state. A sign of a good team is improvement as the season progresses. They showed just how much they improved in the Class AA semifinals Monday with a 5-2 win over Centennial, a team they lost to 5-3 in the season opener in August. “The girls have really settled in and found each other,” coach John Soderholm said. “They’re moving the ball around really well and hit their peak at the right time.” Alyssa Blahnik had a memorable afternoon in Rogers is at the Class AA semifinal Andy with three goals and two andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Southwest players put on a full blitz in the final 15 minutes, but keeper Sam Ruelas and defenders Kevin Herro, Bonderud, Arshan Tarapore and Jonathan Lenz preserved the shutout. Before leaving the game with concussion-like symptoms, Ruelas had nine saves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was one of the best displays by a keeper in any game this year,â&#x20AC;? Gustafson said.

Once he scored four goals against Bloomington Kennedy on Sept. 8, the fifth game of the season, teams took notice and opponents started to key on Gweh. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when other players like Pierce Erickson, EspindaBanick, Mike Bonderud, Matt Miller, and Joe Karam had to step up. Eastview started to win games even when Gweh was shut out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been easy for us, but we made our own luck sometimes,â&#x20AC;? EspindaBanick said. The Lightning wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be playing at state without the efforts of the entire program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the guys stepped up from top to bottom and we have really great senior leadership on this team,â&#x20AC;?

Say what you want about the Metrodome, but for high school soccer players competing at the state tournament for the first time, it is a special occasion. The Eastview boys were thrilled to make their first ever appearance at the state tournament this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been here before,â&#x20AC;? senior captain Brennan EspindaBanick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely new to us, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re loving it.â&#x20AC;? Since the school opened, the girls team has advanced to state three times, but the boys have been shut out with the likes of Apple Valley and Eagan in the same section. The Lightning werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the forecast when the season opened; Eastview wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ranked in the top 10 by the coaches association. It took a month of undefeated play to reach the top spot, where they stayed all season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were under the radar, which was kind of good for us,â&#x20AC;? EspindaBanick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get cocky.â&#x20AC;? A big reason behind their success was the emergence of forward Mathew Gweh, who sat out last year because of transfer rules. Gweh came into the season confident, and he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised when they started winning games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doubt the team,â&#x20AC;? Gweh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew coming in. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like brothers. Sometimes we get a little upset, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer. We try to work hard for each other.â&#x20AC;? Opponents didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to expect from Gweh in the early part of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time you see him play youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be on your heels pretty fast,â&#x20AC;? head coach Scott Gustafson
