Re: Biggest win of the month !

Westy, you beat me to the punch on this one. Good stuff.
Hopefully get to see them play the Spuds later in the short season.

Re: CoVid-19

Has anyone ever seen Karl and Lee in the same place at the same time? I know I haven't... Yeah, Karl should have taken a selfie of us at the 7AA semifinals :mrgreen: Lee Next year we'll have to provide photographic evidence when we have our annual 7AA playoff meeting of the minds.

Re: 7AA FINALS

Congrats to Andover and good luck at state!! I know you will represent 7AA well in St. Paul. How can anyone be surprised at the attendance? Anyone should have seen the low attendance coming from a mile away especially the MSHSL. I have no issue whatsoever with the section semi final/final being hel...

Have to give a s/o to our good friend AlCloseShaver for a nice Elk semi win . No one ? has endured what ACS has in the playoffs the last decade
Thanks Westy
And a shoutout to Karl for for the updates on Twitter for those of us predisposed today. Fogarty is a no go so Amsoil it is.

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

It’s an odd year when it’s the same post-Amsoil game(s) song being sung, but the north teams singing it with the south teams being the ones laughing. Only in this parity-themed season. Edit: This must be Ben Gustafson’s biggest win of his career, no? Ben won a state football title as O line for the...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

I agree Elk River has gotten better to win Elk River has two score 4 goals Grand Rapids has lost every time they have given up 4 goals but I just don’t think the elks are going to have enough to get past either Grand Rapids or Andover but that’s why we play the game anything can happen this time of...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

The last time these guys met in Edina Rapids was playing it’s worst hockey and still Handley outplayed the elks. Elk river definitely has a chance it’s the playoffs, but the way GR is playing they are on another level then the last time they played in December. I say 5-1 5-2 Rapids . Grand Rapids i...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

Elks have a penchant for giving up a lot of SOG, need to keep GR at 3 goals or less and hope a difference maker like Michaelis pops a few in. Would be ironic if in a down year this club pulls off a couple of upsets where some great teams have failed. Elks would have very little chance V Andover wher...

Possible section final at Fogarty in play.

ACS - will you be at Amsoil for the semi?
Vowed to never return to the house of horrors after the meltdown vs Rapids. Will go to Fogarty though.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Elks at CEC has the makings of a revenge game for ER for the Esse shenanigans at Tobies a few years back. CEC Had them beat in Jaremko’s junior year at the now defunct Olympic arena in Elk River before a late 😏 PP.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Do I think this years Andover team is as good as 2017 GR, 2018 DE, 2015 ER, or 2017 ER...no. I’m not even sure they’re as good as 2008 Anoka or 2008 DE. But... their seniors have a boat load of section playoff experience, they have two ELITE senior defensemen & at least raw talent wise, this is as ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Knivsy, your not seeing it clearly on ER/Andover. The only thing that can beat Andover is maybe East having home ice advantage.

I guess I was wrong; I was thinking Andover by 5.
You may be right but game is at East.
Just trolling Elliott
Amsoil is West of Lake Ave, so technically not East Duluth. Central or West.
Central it is then.
