The Burnsville football team broke through for its first win.
Can the Blaze make it two in a row? A second straight victory will be a little tough against Rosemount. The two teams meet on Burnsville's home turf Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.

The Blaze got a 3-yard scoring run in the first quarter from senior Lucas Volk and an 8-yard touchdown from sophomore Colton Gregersen in the second quarter to lead 12-0 at the break.
Junior Myiion Hodges added an 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter for the Blaze for an 18-0 advantage.
Burnsville lost its shutout bid later in the final frame when Eagan connected on a 3-yard scoring pass and then added the 2-point conversion.
The Blaze end the regular season Oct. 16 versus No. 1-ranked Wayzata at 7 p.m The Class 6A playoff bracket will be released Oct. 17 and will be available at mshsl.org.

The No. 7 seed would mean Burnsville would play the No. 2 seed on the road in the first round Oct. 25 from either Section 4, 5 or 6.
