We task our reporters with identifying several intriguing games throughout the state to assemble our Top Games of the Week. The matchups are presented in no particular order, and when there are additional games we want to highlight, we’ll include them with brief notes.

Other games to keep an eye on

Rosemount vs. Lakeville North, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 18. A victory for No. 2-4A Lakeville North (23-4, 7-1) could result in a complicated finish atop the South Suburban Conference standings. North, No. 6-4A Lakeville South and No. 8-4A Eagan all could finish with 8-1 league records. And head-to-head results don't work as a tie-breaker because South beat North, North beat Eagan and Eagan beat South. Rosemount (15-10, 3-5) has lost seven of 11 games after being ranked in the Class 4A top 10 earlier this season.

Holy Angels vs. Southwest Christian, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 18. A couple of conference champions meet for section tournament warmup. No. 4-3A Holy Angels (22-3, 9-0) is on its way to a Tri-Metro title while No. 5-2A Southwest Christian (20-8, 5-0) has a Wright County East Conference title in hand.
