Re: Turning Points

In my opinion the most important win GR history was in 1972 in the quarterfinals of their first trip to state. They had a matchup with a very good Edina Hornet team who was heavily favored. Somehow Rapids overcame the jitters of their first ever appearance and pulled off a victory. They went on to t...

Good stuff cigar. Also- that is the longest post in 3 years that doesn’t include the word - Hermantown. :)

Re: CoVid-19

Good question on the toilet paper Raider. While I’d hate to run out of that there are many things more essential than that. Besides, I texted my Wisconsin friends and told them how lucky they were that they have all that Packer gear in case they run out. 😁

Re: Biggest Tourney upsets

The 1980 final with Grand Rapids and Hill Murray should be up there too. Hill was undefeated going into the final and lost 2-1, despite outshooting Rapids 32-16. A couple things about the 1980 tournament. Nobody could have anticipated that after Rapids won the title it would be 37 years before anot...

Cool night tonight for Hill and Poeschel at Mahtomedi. Pretty sure he was Hills goalie in 1980 championship game.

Re: Mahtomedi vs Hermantown

It's easy to find things to complain about when it comes to sports in general. But I would have to say that Minnesota Hockey is alive and well. This game was fantastic. I didn't care who won. I just wanted to see a great game. These two teams did that.

Where are Sparlimb's comments on the game? As much as I hate to admit it, these boys are really fun to watch. For the first time in my life I can say that I will be cheering for Hill-Murray tomorrow night. I'm trying not to throw up in my mouth while I say that. It's like cheering for Hitler vs. St...

In the old days you couldn't get a ticket. Of course there were only 2 D1 teams in Minnesota then. I also saw quite a few empty seats tonight at the X.

Re: Mahtomedi vs Warroad

God that was painful Warroad didn’t play bad today. They just ran into a hot goalie and their goalie, who is usually very good, had a tough, uptight day. I am willing to bet that, if they played Maht 10 times, they would win 8. But, hats off to Maht, they made the best of their opportunities. Agree...

Surprised by the coach exchange at the end of that one. I wouldn't doubt someone from Cathedral doesn't see the ice in this next period.

Running time win for Hermantown. No “playing with their food before they eat” it in this one 😶
Anything is possible but I doubt they put SCC into running time.

Don't agree Joe. That was too good of a game to say that. St. Thomas is good enough to win it all. Andover was clearly the better team: they just let STA win a game they had no business winning I agree that Andover would probably beat them 6 or 7 out of 10. I'm just saying it was far from a choke. ...
