Re: Sparlimb

Of all the great HM-WBL games that 2006 Section final was the best. HM was 25-1-1, but had not been to State in 3 years. WBL returned much of the team from what was the best team in the State in 2005. However the curse continued and they had lost to Duluth East in the State quarterfinals. Both teams...

Re: AA Championship: Hill Murray v Eden Prairie

Hey Spar and East Side Pio Guy Can a guy from the West Metro come to the parade? I DO venture over to the Tradition Rich East Metro many times every year to see the Pios , in good times and bad , and I DO remember 1983! An added reference : I DID spend time last nite between periods talking to a HM...

Re: AA Championship: Hill Murray v Eden Prairie

Great post. Thank you. Bill Lechner can now go up on the Mount Rushmore of MN HS Hockey coaches.

HM is 12-10-2 in th...

Living in the past. This hill team has no depth. No trip to the X this year. They would have a better shot at 4a title. :x
Sadly, this post turned out to be Incorrect on all 4 counts. (Mahtomedi would have been tough to beat in 4A.)

Re: Hill-Murray vs St. Thomas Academy - Semi-Final Friday

How have these teams faired in bantams and peewees over the last few years? This might've been considered a clever chirp a decade ago. 46 years ago. We are now 46 years into private schools in the MSHSL. It's a done deal in all sports and across the Country. Also the quaint notion that public schoo...

HM's Strobel and Pierre looked really good on that slightly bigger and faster ice surface at the X.

Re: Section 4AA thread

The Metro East went 8-4-1 against the Suburban East this season. It's clearly a far better hockey conference. HM should get a bye into the final and the 7 SE schools plus Minnehaha should have a play-in tournament. HM's sweep of the SEC in 4AA makes it 11-4-1. Big congratulations to the Metro East ...

Re: Section 4AA thread

Speaking of the Metro East Conference... Can some one explain to me how the points system works in this conference (and others, for that matter)? HM wins the Metro East with 25 pts and a 7-1-1 conference record. Mahtomedi is 2nd with 20 pts and a 7-3-0 record. And Hastings is 3rd with 19 pts and an...

Re: Section 4AA thread

HM was 10-4 in Section finals at the Coliseum and is 3-2 in Section finals at Aldrich. It appears that Aldrich Arena doesn't really provide an advantage. Nobody uses Ridder for high school games. Does the U even make it available?

I find it interesting that Hill gets to play the entire section tourney on their home ice .Doesn't seem quite fair does it? Of course the tournament director is Jeff Whistler, a Hill guy Aldrich has a capacity of 3000. The Coliseum closed in 2014. 4AA would have to go 20+ miles away to the other si...

And Hill still lost at home vs a very average WBL club. Maybe they should think about playing class A hockey.
The 11 appearances in the State Championship game suggest otherwise.

Re: Association not allowing privates on top teams

This paranoia about kids that might or might not go to Hill-Murray goes way back in Stillwater. Housley, Sagissor, etc. kept it going and the association tries to punish those kids and families. It hasn't worked. It is particularly ridiculous in modern youth hockey with all of the options out there ...

Re: Section 4AA thread

The jury is still out. WBL vs. CDH and HM vs. Moorhead will help determine #1. The probable semifinal matchups have become much more interesting with the emergence of Stillwater and East Ridge. Both are Feb 26 at Aldrich.
