Wayzata had 4 shots, with 2 shots on goal compared to Eden Prairie's 10 shots and 6 shots on goal.  The Trojans were lead by Kylie Schwarz, Taylor Wodnick, Rebecca Dryer, and Katie Schulz who each contributed shots.  Goal keeper Megan Pyrz allowed 3 goals, and had 3 saves.

Head Coach Tony Peszneker commented after the game, "They scored 42 seconds into the game and it was hard to recover from that.  You never want to give up a goal that early in a game.  We had two players run into each other, falling down and giving them a chance for a break."

Coach Peszneker continued, "I thought we settled down after 4 or 5 minutes, we got back into the game.  We were doing a pretty good job.  I thought we gave up way too many corner kicks, but we fought back.  Overall, I'm still quite please to get back to the finals after winning it last year--against a very good and deserving team in Eden Prairie.  You have to give them a lot of credit.  They came to play."

Wayzata had three players selected by the MSHSL league to the All Tournament Team:

  • Keeper Megan Pyrz
  • Midfielder Lauren Urke
  • Midfielder Kiana Nickel
