Judge: Minn. school can't go to state soccer tourney

MINNEAPOLIS — A judge has denied a request to allow the boys’ soccer team from Prairie Seeds Academy to compete in the Minnesota Class A state tournament.

The Brooklyn Park school was seeking a court order to reverse the Minnesota State High School League's decision to disqualify the team from the state tournament.

The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/SFdZ9i) reports Hennepin County Judge Jay Quam on Friday denied the request.

The league ended Prairie Seeds’ season because of the school's use of an ineliglble player. The investigation began after an on-field fight at the end of the team's playoff victory over Totino-Grace. The league then disqualified Prairie Seeds after finding the team used an ineligible player the entire 2012 season.

Duluth Marshall will advance to Monday's semifinals at the Metrodome.
