Lakeville South’s running game proved to be the difference as the Cougars held on to beat Shakopee 30-22 on Thursday night in Shakopee. Lakeville South came into the game ranked #1 in Class 6A and they looked it on the team’s first two possessions. Cougars tailback Carson Hanson scored twice in the first half to give Lakeville South a 13-0 lead.
