Eden Prairie knocked off Eastview 30-0 in the Class 5A semifinals on Friday, setting up a match of unbeatens in the big school finale of next week's Prep Bowl.
After a close first half that ended with Eden Prairie leading 16-0, the Eagles opened the second half with a 12-play, 72-yard drive and took a 23-0 lead on Ryan Grant's 10-yard pass to Ben Hueper. Scott Lindner scored a few minutes later on a one-yard run to put the game away.
The Eagles will meet Cretin-Derham Hall in the Prep Bowl next Friday night. Both teams are 13-0.
Eastview put up a fight all night and had back-to-back sacks of Grant to kill a fourth-quarter drive, but the Lightning fumbled away the ensuing punt.
Lindner led Eden Prairie with 97 yards rushing while the Eagles held Eastview to 104 yards of offense.
