The perfect record continues for the South Washington County Thunderbolts as they won on Tuesday night 12-3 against St. Paul Humboldt.

The Thunderbolts went out to an early lead and never looked back. It was a good performance for the team as they have two regular season games left before the section tournament.

"We had a really good game tonight," said coach John Culbertson. "We were able to play a lot of kids in the game and it was nice seeing their skills continuing to grow."

In the first five minutes of the game, the Thunderbolts went out to a 5-0 lead with the help of some strong offense. After the first half, the Thunderbolts led 10-0 and felt comfortable with their lead.

Even though they were comfortable, they continued to score more goals as they extended the lead to 12-0 with 10 minutes left in the game.

St. Paul Humboldt tried to make a comeback with three goals in the last five minutes, but they weren't able to pull it off allowing the Thunderbolts to win.

The win on Tuesday night gives the Thunderbolts a 7-0 record in the regular season, which is tied with a team formed with Burnsville, Farmington and Lakeville. If both teams win on Thursday, they will play each other on Tuesday, Oct. 30 for the conference title.

The Thunderbolts travel to North High School on Thursday, Oct. 25 to keep that perfect record in tack as their eyes look ahead to a big game the following week for the conference title.

"It would be fun to win the conference title," said senior Mitchell Rinnels. "It's been a fun season."
