Star Tribune: Maple Grove runs past Wayzata 34-7

David La Voque of the Star Tribune wrote an article on the Trojans loss to former Wayzata defensive coordinator and present Maple Grove Head Coach Matt Lombardi.

“Former Wayzata defensive coordinator and current Maple Grove football coach Matt Lombardi hoped to greet former comrades before Friday’s game at Wayzata High School, his first return since leaving in 2011.

But construction on Peony Lane forced the Maple Grove team buses to detour. Several red lights later, a frazzled Lombardi walked onto the turf about 45 minutes before kickoff and got right into his coaching duties.

His team didn’t need much time to feel comfortable. Isaac Collins returned the opening kickoff 93 yards for a touchdown. The Crimson’s fast start and physical advantage on the line of scrimmage produced a 34-7 victory.”
