Caledonia prepared for every scenario entering title tilt

Posted: Updated:
CALEDONIA, MN (WXOW) -

How much more confidence can Caledonia have after blowing out every opponent the last two seasons?
Believe it or not, they probably added more after their semifinal win over Barnesville.

The 55-20 final is a bit misleading in the fact that the Warriors actually trailed 13-7 at one point.
It marked the first time they had fallen behind in a game since the 2014 MSHSL State Quarterfinals.
On Friday, they'll play Eden Valley-Watkins for the Class AA state title knowing they can handle adversity if it should come.

"I think it was huge in my mind to know how everyone reacted when we were down by 6 points.  To know that we didn't blame each other, we stuck together, we pulled it out and we came through and blew them out.  That's huge on my part," said senior running back/linebacker Alex Goergen.
"It's nice to know we were able to do that.  But the coaches have always prepared us for that situation anyway.  But it's nice to know that we were in that and got out of it," said quarterback Owen King, who's thrown for 43 touchdowns this season.

Caledonia is going for back to back state titles.
 They have seven state titles in school history.
 Kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium is 1 o'clock Friday.

Caledonia is 12-0 while EV-W is 11-1.
