Benilde-St. Margaret's started the season with high hopes and then lost six of its first eight matches.
But the competition was tough — losses came against No. 1-2A Southwest Christian, No. 5-3A New Prague, No. 1-3A Marshall, No. 9-4A Northfield, a Bloomington Jefferson team that was ranked in the top three in Class 4A and Maple Grove. And the Red Knights (9-9, 2-3) have been finding more success of late, having won seven of their last nine matches.
Holy Angels will provide a solid measuring stick for Benilde-St. Margaret's. The No. 7-3A Stars (13-1, 8-0) have one loss and it was to Southwest Christian. The match at Benilde-St. Margaret's will be the sixth in a string of seven consecutive on the road for the Stars.
