Because Edina's at home I will go with Edina 3 Andover 2.

I guess if we were betting, I would take Andover and the points and the "over".
Congrats on the first MSHSL parlay Lake South Alum!

Re: AA

1a. Hornet
1b. Andover
3. Blake
4. Skipper
5. Trojan
6. NWC
7. Forest Lake
8. Eagles (Eden Prairie)
9. Brainerd
10. Maple Grove

Honorable Mention: Breck would be 3b. in this poll. They are going to be pretty good and despite their goalie being gone will destroy the field in "A".

Re: U18 roster for festival

I dont know Theile but there are imo 2 F, 1 D, and 1 G that one could argue could be on that squad. I think that the D & G are the best fit and if there is an injury or something happens to someone would not be surprised if one of them might get the call to join the squad. I think that the D will be...

Re: U18 roster for festival

No shot. They might win 1 game that is stolen by your favorite goalie (and mine of the 2 listed) 1-0 but would probably lose every game by 3+ goals.

Re: Andover vs Edina

Before you guys anoint this as the game of the decade let's not forget that there are a few other teams that might have a say in this year before the season end specifically Brainerd and Forest Lake. They tied 2-2 over the weekend. I'll take Andover 5-4 as it is the first game of the year and ther ...

Re: 2020 Ms. Hockey discussion

Not much of an argument from me on 6 of the last 8 Ms. Hockey's. No argument on Zumwinkle, Baldwin, Cameranesi, Brandt, Heise, or Wethington. Cant argue with their HS resume's, their Sr year statistics and impact, USA Hockey contributions, and college careers (thus far). I think that one could const...

It is unfortunate that many of these girls are playing boys. I absolutely get why they do it and I do not blame them for their decision. They have their eyes on the next prize which is Division 1 hockey and also USA hockey (national team stuff). I believe that there is at least a couple of reasons. ...

I believe goal #1 was s...

WHat were the observations from the weekend?
I was not surprised by the dominance of the Elite colors. I was a little surprised by the 1-1 tie of U19-Black with the Dallas Stars. What happened there?

Re: Elite league

Black handled Grey pretty easily Tuesday night. Should set Grey up to be ready to kick some tail this weekend.

I am excited to see how all of the colors do against all of those teams that are traveling in for this weekend. I see teams from Cali, Dallas, Canada, and other places have games scheduled.

If your daughter received calls in 9th grade the school calling her violated NCAA rules.
Of course. We did not receive any calls from coaches in 9th or 10th grade. All calls were made by my kid after requests were made for her to call.
