GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The two teams that finished 1 and 2 in the Eastern Dakota Conference boys soccer regular season standings – Fargo Davies and West Fargo High – were the two squads playing for a state championship on Saturday, October 13.
The Packers and Eagles played to ties in their two regular season meetings, but in the 2018 North Dakota High School Activities Association title match West Fargo came away with the 1-0 victory at Cushman Field.
West Fargo (15-3-2) and Fargo Davies were gridlocked in a scoreless match much of regulation until senior forward Daniel Collins scored a goal with 2 minutes, 32 seconds remaining in the second half.
The championship is West Fargo’s third in five seasons. The Packers have won four state championships in program history (2010, 2014, 2016 and 2018).
Davies (15-3-2) finished runner up for the second straight year.
