GAME/MATCH RESULTS

Thursday, January 30th

(NEW) BOYS VARSITY HOCKEY BEATS APPLE VALLEY 2-1

The Boys Varsity Hockey team (11-8-1) snuck by crosstown rival Apple Valley by a score of 2-1.  After a late goal in the first period by the Eagles, Josh Eernisse knocked home a goal off a pass from Cullen Johnson and Ryan Quaintance to tie the score at 1-1.  The Lightning peppered the Apple Valley goalie with numerous shots, but came away empty as the teams headed to the second intermission still deadlocked 1-1.  Dylan Abboud finally lit the lamp 4:28 into the third period, with a helper from Caden EspindaBanick, to put the Lightning ahead 2-1.  After some sweet Bennett Weestrand saves, the squad held on for the very important conference win.  Next up for Eastview is a tilt against #13 ranked Prior Lake at 6pm on Saturday night at the AVSA. #whateverittakes; #thisisourhouse; #16-8-1

 

(NEW) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL COED VARSITY WRESTLING BEAT LAKEVILLE NORTH HIGH SCHOOL 53-29 

The varsity wrestling team improved their record to 16-3 and 6-1 in the SSC by defeating Lakeville North 53-29. The team earned 9 of 14 match wins, all by pin or technical fall. Earning pins were Nolan Enderlein, Drew Bergstedt, Roman Gilbert, Mason Enderlein, Nathan Langer, Logan O'Neil, Connor Meixell, and Kellen Stewart. Austin Gerisch earned an technical fall by outscoring his opponent 18-3. Nice job men! 

 

(NEW) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL BOYS JUNIOR VARSITY POSTS SECOND WIN IN A ROW BEATING APPLE VALLEY 4-3

Coming off their monumental 10-goal offensive outbreak two days earlier, Eastview JV (5-14-1) didn’t disappoint their season ticket holder base in a 4-3 victory over rival Apple Valley Eagles.  After Apple Valley struck first, there was a definite “here we go again” feeling in the bleachers.  That didn’t faze the EV iron-10, though.  Clad in their road black and blues, Junior forward Matthew Schoonover tied things up 1-1 with just 12 seconds left in the first period (assist by sophomore defenseman Ryan Moline).  EV outshot AV 11-6 in the period and players were quoted in the locker room during the first intermission, “it sure is harder to score when there’s an opposing goalie in net.”  The back-and-forth affair continued in the second period with the Eagles taking a 2-1 lead at the 1:22 mark.  No matter though, as one EV fan said, “we’ve got ‘em right where we want ‘em.”  True to form, later in the second period, lightning struck twice with goals from sophomore’s Joe Sigel and Ryan Moline to put EV up 3-2 (assists from sophomore defenseman Sam Gillis and junior forward Matthew Schoonover respectively).  Yes, order was restored after two periods as the AV coach was overhead saying, “you can’t stop them, you can only hope to contain them.”  EV came out of the second intermission skating well and added a fourth goal in the third period.  After getting decked in the second period, sophomore forward Jake Swanson was flattened again but still put the biscuit in the basket off a sweet feed from sophomore forward AJ Wagner.  The route was on.  Not so fast, said the home Eagles, as AV netted a goal at the 6:46 mark to close within one at 4-3.  Sophomore goaltender Connor Christian put an end to any hope of a comeback, though, coming up big on a couple of tremendous saves down the stretch (Christian stopped 17 of the 20 AV shots on the night). With that, a two-game winning streak was born.  EV will try to make it three in a row Saturday as they host Prior Lake at 4:00 p.m. in the friendly confines of AVSA.  #itspaybacktime

 


ARTS & ACTIVITIES

A NIGHT OF ANCIENT TALES- EASTVIEW’S WINTER AND ONE ACT PLAYS

Join us for a Night of Ancient Tales, as Eastview’s Performing Arts Department presents two plays; Antigone  and Tales From Odysseus.  

Performance dates are February 20, 21, and 22 at 7PM in the Eastview Performing Arts Center.  All tickets are general admission and are available at the Box Office starting one hour before showtime.  Ticket prices are Adults: $7 and Senior Citizens/Students: $5.

Antigone: 

It takes guts to stand up to the most powerful man in the country. Especially when you’re 15. After both of her brothers kill each other in opposing sides of a war, Antigone dares to defy her uncle, King Creon, by burying her ‘traitor’ brother. When Creon discovers that Antigone has performed the burial despite his command, he orders her to be walled up in a cave alive thus starving her to death. Creon does not listen to the pleadings of Ismene, Antigone’s sister, nor his son Haemon, who is engaged to Antigone. Haemon goes to Antigone’s cave, sees that she has hung herself and kills himself as well. Hearing this, his mother also takes her own life at the fateful end of this Greek tragedy.

The Search For Odysseus:

The Search for Odysseus tells the story of the Odyssey, from the point of view of Telemachus, his son. After the Trojan War, Odysseus does not return with the other soldiers, and Telemachus sets out to find him and in so doing embarks on a voyage of self discovery.
