Re: AA QF: White Bear Lake vs. #2 Blaine

75 years. 0-19. The curse of Moose Goheen lives on. Maybe they can hang another Consolation banner at Vadnais.

At least they have that WB Mariner quarterfinal win in 1982.

Re: Last 16 State Winners: Rank 'Em

Sadly, departures are now a fact of life for MN HS Hockey. I think that the HM 2013 team that lost to Edina in the Final would have won with Jake Guentzel.

Re: H-M Coach Bill Lechner

Fun fact: One of Bill Lechner's 500 wins is a victory over Hill-Murray. On Feb. 23, 1993 at Aldrich Arena, Bill Lechner's Stillwater Ponies beat Steve Rohlik's Pioneers 4-3. Rohlik had been Lechner's Assistant at Stillwater the year before. Rohlik is now the Coach at Ohio State. That 1993 HM team lo...

Re: H-M Coach Bill Lechner

Congratulations to Coach Lechner. He's 438-147-26 at Hill-Murray plus 62 wins at Stillwater. Also congratulations to Asst. Coach Pat Schafhauser, who has been with him most of those years and coaches the D-men.

Re: Bullying at Hill Murray?

The administration at HM is not "full of complete idiots" and did not "completely botch this". First of all "the administration" at HM is Jim Hansen, Erin Herman and Bill Lechner. Erin Herman is now the Principal. She has been the Girls BB Coach for 25+ years. She has been an Asst Principal and Acti...

Re: Bullying at Hill Murray?

I sent 3 kids to Hill-Murray. It's a great place. Mostly great teachers, families and kids. There are lots of less than wealthy families (like mine) there that get financial assistance and have kids do a version of work-study. I'm sorry for the young man was harassed for working for tuition help. Th...

Re: Early Departures 2018-19

Ben Helgeson's scoring, experience and senior leadership would sure be welcome if he returns to Hill-Murray. Strobel, Pierre and Eischen have tons of potential but are still youngsters. Hopefully he and his family have learned through recent history good hockey players (Mittelstadt) do not have to l...

Hill-Murray

Changes from last year are adding Stillwater and deleting Eastview and Elk River. As of now both school's schedules show home and home, back to back games with Edina Friday-Saturday, January 18-19. If accurate that's very cool - modelled after college hockey. I love seeing Cretin-DH and Stillwater o...

Guarantee WBL will be holding their sticks a little tight to start tonight. First time in a while they’ve come into this game as heavy favorites with a chance to do real damage at state. With so much riding on this one I expect they come out flat. Hope they win, but I’m worried. It's been true in t...

HM - WBL

There haven't been as many HM-WBL Section Finals as you might think. 14 to be exact. Some of their great Section games over the years were in the Semi-finals. They didn't play in a Final until 1985. HM is 10-4. HM was also 3-0 in Section Finals vs. WB Mariner between 1975 and 1980. Looking forward t...

Trip to Eveleth, Hibbing and Grand Rapids

I am making a trip north from the Twin Cities next weekend. Plan to go to the USA Hockey Hall of Fame in Eveleth and see Warroad at Hibbing on Friday night, then Hill-Murray at Grand Rapids on Saturday afternoon. I've never been to either of the historic arenas in Hibbing and GR. Haven't been to the...

All schools have down years. Hill-Murray has had very few. That 2001 team was the last time they had a losing record at 12-14-1. The regular season ended with a humiliating 8-0 loss to White Bear. Yet the next season they bounced back, beat WBL 4-1 in the Section Final and made it to the State Champ...

3) Stillwater - Like Hill-Murray, Stillwater graduated a ton. Didn't live up to expectations last year with the section title runner-ups, but Coach Doman has another highly talented Bantam group coming in, led by the electric Noah Tussey and Charlie Strobel. Can the young Ponies match the Bears and...

Congrats on the correct call. Another Bears season ends with players grieving on their knees on the ice and Coach Sager tapping heads. 11 times in 12 years. Bill Butters where are you?
