Assuming WBL beats Hill, I would imagine the following would be the seeds: 1) Minnetonka 2) Edina 3) STA 4) Duluth East 5) WBL 6) Centennial 7) STMA 8 ) Lakeville If Hill wins, I would probably put Centennial at the 5. Don't think it matters which Lakeville team wins and assuming Centennial and East...

Section 2AA Final Seeding

Here is the final seeding for section 2AA:

1) Minnetonka
2) Holy Family Catholic
3) Prior Lake
4) Eden Prairie
5) Chaska
6) New Prague
7) Chanhassen
8 ) Shakopee

I would think Tonka would have preferred to play PL in the seminfinals (hard to beat a team 3x in one season). Thoughts?

Edina needs it more and they're at home. Plus Tonka is looking bast the Hornets to Saturday in a game that determines who has ownership rights to Lake Minnetonka. I think I speak on behalf of all Tonka fans that wins over Edina feel a lot better than wins over Wayzata. That said, Edina wins tonight...

I agree. Might be time for Hopkins to find another conference and have HF join the Lake...

Or do conferences need to be uniform throughout all sports?

Re: Hopkins/Lake Conference

Does anyone know why Hopkins only plays each Lake Conference team once this year? They are still listed as being in the Lake but with only half the games as the other teams, it's (obviously) impossible for them to win the conference. Each game is worth 4 points instead of playing two games for two ...

Hats off to Wayzata! They played a phenomenal second and third period after a shaky start. Besse's line underperformed all night...you couldn't even notice him out there. As for him being a class act, I have no comment.

If you look back at the poll, it says:

Minnetonka 16
Wayzata 3

So now that Wayzata won, there are different expectations. I think they'll beat Benilde on Wednesday.

I find it funny that Wayzata, a team that finished the regular season 1-3 and a team that nobody picked to win the section (just check the prediction thread), is now the favorite to beat the No. 1 seed and No. 2 team in the state, a team which has lost twice in 2013, once in a blizzard. I'm not say...

This situation really stinks for Tonka fans. Instead of two full student/fan sections, the community is going to need to choose which game to go to. The best case scenario would be to switch the Prior Lake/Bville game with the Tonka/Wayzata game. That way, both EP and Tonka will be able to see both ...

I saw on Twitter that this game is rumored to start at 7:30 at BIG. That would be a bummer because the Girls State Championship is at 7:00 and Minnetonka is expected to be in that one as well. Everyone was planning on going to both but I guess that's not feasible anymore. :( Regardless, it will be a...

Minnetonka's biggest rivalry is with Edina. There's something about those two conference games that brings an extra intensity and level of fan participation year in and year out. They're neighbors and are in the same Conference and are often the two teams duking it out for the Lake Conference title....

EP will beat BSM in the semifinal game. They are on a roll and nearly pulled it off last week even after a dismal first half of the game. These two semifinal games will be two of the best in Section history. Any one of the four can come out of Section 6. Don't count out HF yet either...

On the girls forum someone pointed out that BSM had 5 games against teams that made State and outscored those teams 27-3. Whoever comes out of 6AA on the boys side should have an impressive record against teams advancing to State from the other sections as well. Actually, no. Not sure who will adva...

Eden Prairie at Edina (2/16/13)

Should be a good game- doesn't have any section or conference implications but it's always a fun battle nonetheless.

I see EP winning this one.

The atmosphere at the Tonka/Benilde section final game was better than any boys game I have been to all year- there wasn't a seat open at Parade.

What was such a good game for two periods ended being a rout in favor of the Skippers. EP scored the first two goals despite being heavily outshot by Tonka, but the Skippers came back with 6 unanswered goals. Tonka goes 8-0 in the Lake Conference and certainly has a ton of momentum going into sectio...

Even Loren Nelson's commentary on Hockey Hub questions the frequent net dislodging. Anyone that has ever watched Benjamin play knows that he loves kicking it off whenever he is in trouble. I'm surprised he's never gotten called for it before.
