Re: Section 6AA Seeding Discussion

I think tickets go on sale on Saturday morning. If my memory serves me correctly last year Section 2 tickets went on sale 1 hour before game time at Braemar. I don't think BIG did the same.

I left at 5-1 EP with 3 minutes left. Once again, the Ben Steeves show, another hatty.

5-2 final.
Drew Holt also played a terrific game. 5-2 final. Both Wayzata goals came on 5 on 3 PP.

EP 2. Way 0
Second period ended. Players all left the ice. Zamboni waiting to come on while Lee Smith and Pat O'Leary are yelling at each other. Smith on the EP bench. O'Leary standing at the door behind the goal on the far end.

Re: Association not allowing privates on top teams

2 things... Why don't the private schools have bantam and maybe pewee teams? There are private schools that have traveling basketball teams in 6th-8th grades. I asked earlier, but I'm still curious...are there quite a few bantam kids that are asked to try out for HS, but end up back in bantams? The...

Re: Cloquet Goalie Quits team

Let's face it, goaltenders are usually people who march to the beat of a different drummer. It's almost a requirement given the stresses of the position. I have never been surprised by any decision a goalie makes. My observation is based on being the parent of a former high school goaltender.

Re: Games Thursday 1-23-2020

SSC rivals have really been gunning for Irish. Schumacher Bump Line had real jump in their step tonite Chemistry on the Soph line at PL was evident. Rice was everywhere creating turnovers. Rosemount looked totally flat for some reason. Turnovers in their own zone, missed passes and dumb penalties.

I'd even throw EP in the mix, they've been fine but I think they're easily the most talented team in the state.
They do have a lot of talent, unfortunately there is only one puck.

Re: Who’s your top AA team?

Objectively it’s Spuds or WBL based on their records.
Subjectively its EP or Andover based on the warmupthebus eye test.
The tiebreaker might be goal tending so the Spuds are #1 .......for now.
