Other games to keep an eye on

East Ridge at Stillwater, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 9. East Ridge (14-6, 6-0) can likely lock up a second-straight Suburban East Conference title against No. 8-3A Stillwater (14-5, 6-0). Both teams are unbeaten in conference play. The No. 5-3A Raptors won 3-2 last year at home.

Southwest Christian vs. Norwood-Young America, 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 11. The Minnesota River Conference crown is very much up for grabs, and Southwest Christian (15-6, 4-1) and Norwood-Young America (20-7, 5-1) aim to knock each other out of the running.
