Re: The Hermantown Thread

Well said, IRMN. It is sad what high school hockey has become. No pride in one's hometown or dedication to the kids they grew up playing with. Just looking out for #1. So, who is the family/kid moving into Hermantown? I agree, but lets not put all of the blame here on the kid. The parents of these ...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

The current structure of the MSHSL does not work.Having a structure where a team falls within the guidelines to compete at the designated level only to be attacked and disparaged because they are too good for that level is ridiculous. What other sport in high school opens it up to public opinion abo...

Re: Cathedral vs Greenway

It would have been phenomenal if Greenway could have pulled it off but you can only pull so many rabbits out of a hat.

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

I'm as big of a 7A fan as there is, but I'd much rather watch Mahtomedi and SCC each reach the title game for the first time in their schools' history instead of watching Hermantown roll to its 9th title game in 10 years. As for this game, Mahtomedi did beat the Raiders 5-2 earlier this season, but...

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

I think Greenway has the better top 10. They kept their legs in the first game so hopefully they can do it again. With Moorhead and East out, a Greenway/EGF final would salvage the tourney for me.

Re: Most Devastating Tourney Final Loss

I know a lot of you Hawks haters won't like this, but, I remember the 2013 class A championship. Hermantowm had a 4 - 2 lead over St. Thomas after 2. This was when St. Thomas was the big bad enemy and was getting constantly razed to move up. In the last minute of the 3rd, Hermantown got called for ...

Re: Class A QF: North Branch vs. #2 St. Cloud Cathedral

SCC walks through sections with a combined score of 21-1, then blows through the quarter final 7-0, for a total of 21-1 goal advantage thus far. When HT was in 5A they had competitive games with SCC, but HT stopped this private from advancing to state at least twice. No team in 6A except maybe Alex,...

Re: Greenway/Hermantown

Wanted to acknowledge this post, because I thought it was a great take on the Hawks. I think sometimes we get so wrapped up the "Hermantown is so dominant" narrative that we forget they are a hockey team with strengths and weaknesses just like any other, even if those strengths are often massive re...

Re: Greenway/Hermantown

What a night at Amsoil. Given last season's result I figured Greenway had a shot if they stuck around, but having seen this sort of game so many times before, I thought the Hawks would find some way to pull it out. Casadonte and friends had other ideas. The Raiders won this game because their star ...

So, you didn't say Hermantown played their best game, which tacitly implies you think Hermantown didn't play to their potential, correct? Why didn't they play as well as they did vs EP or Tonka earlier this year? Why didn't they beat Greenway 4-0 while outshooting them 44-13 again? Greenway did pla...

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

East, they are always good and always get favored by the stripes up here in the north. It is just the way it is from peewees up through high school. Probably the biggest reason I dislike that program.
