"It was a homecoming for Matt Lombardi. The long-time Wayzata football assistant and current Maple Grove head coach won the first meeting between the two teams since Lombardi left Wayzata four years ago."

"Maple Grove broke open a close game at halftime scoring three second-half touchdowns as the Crimson beat Wayzata 34-7 in prep football. It was the first-ever regular season meeting between the two teams and the first overall since 2007."

"Maple Grove (3-0) faces Champlin Park this week as the Crimson look to extend its 20-game regular season winning streak."
