Like predictions in the fact there will be OT games, could be a number of OT games. Nothing more exciting, every play becomes intense.

Last season was at Fergus Falls quarter final win over Willmar in OT, man it was exciting for FF and heart crushing for Willmar.

Good luck to all teams.

Agree with "preferhockey" seeding, Apollo did not deserve 3 seed with 6-4 record in last 10. Picking Sauk Rapids to win it all. Has been best team in section last month. Alexandria will be in the final but lack scoring to prevail. No matter what expect semi-finals and finals to be the most competiti...

Hockey needs to get rid of the last line change to the higher seed. Why should one team in the playoffs because of a subjective seeding be given such a great advantage the entire game?

Agree with the coaching. Good coaching can make a great difference at HS level. This TRF senior group was not all that good as Bantams so to see their success this season especially after poor start to season leads one to believe having a coach that played in NHL and captain of Gophers is a good thi...

Get real, comments like this are unfounded.

Willmar, Fergus, Alex plus a sleeper or two. No penalities and hot goalie leaves section wide open.

Re: STA is an Overrated team based on Elite League performan

in the sta players defense, Wyatt Schmidt plays football and is an all state player and Henry Hart was a soccer player also all state. Both sports could effect point totals... This is no reasonable defense for STA having 14 players in fall elite leagues. Players should earn their spot, money should...

Have to agree somewhat, probably more a 'location' advantage.

8A would be home ice advantage for Thief River Falls.
