Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- SIji Gonzalez scored two goals on Thursday night as the Hermantown boys' soccer team beat Chisago Lakes 3-1 in the Section 7A championship game, marking the Hawks' first trip to to the state tournament since 2009.

Hermantown fell behind 1-0 before Chisago Lakes had a player sent off for a handball in the penalty area, which led to Daniel Hedstrom scoring the equalizing goal on the ensuing penalty kick.

Gonzalez took over from there, scoring a goal in the first and second half for Hermantown and leading his team to the section title.

Seeding for the MSHSL Class A tournament will occur sometime this weekend, with quarterfinal games set to take place on Oct. 23.
