Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Not the same feel tonight for the GR v ER game. Playing for the 3 seed doesn't quite feel right for these 2 programs. Pre QRF days an ER win would have guaranteed a higher seed for the Indians. Tongue in cheek... Good call alcloseshaver. It has been a barn burner pivotal game for so many years I ca...

Re: Games Saturday 12/15

Blake 5, Greenway 2 Final SOG 30-20 Blake Very uninspired effort from the Raiders. I realize this was the second game of a back-to-back on a long road trip, but something is just not right with this team. Blake did not play well, but still managed to pull away fairly easily. The Bears walked right ...

It looks like the early in the season seedings will be: Andover East Elk CEC/Grand Rapids Grand Rapids/CEC Which is interesting because it would mean a possible Duluth East/Cloquet Final showdown, and that is what I want more than anything!!! Knivsy, no way CEC will finish below Rapidly Declining. ...

Re: New Sheriff in 8AA??

I am waiting for the Worriors to step up and take charge and claim the section.
Wizard of Aus take note, the section needs a bonafide leader. The door is open for opportunity here in 2019.
Have the boys ready to thump some gourds. Archie can fill you in on how to get it done. =P~

Re: Games Thursday 12/13

11-9 :shock: I was at Edina vs. Grand Rapids. One sided affair, but it was close on the board for a while when Rapids tied it at 1-1 on their first shot of the game. A squirrely little tip. (Hornets had scored 13 seconds in - Chorske.) Worth noting the Edina goalie was Wolfe. https://youtu.be/BzOdv...

Some of you East guys are having a 1st line hang over from last season expecting an RD line to score at the same clip. Ain't going to happen. Dynamic scoring lines like (Mageau, Worth, Donovan) don't come around every year in HS and they had 2 years as a unit to gel and put up big numbers. The Mille...

Re: New Sheriff in 8AA??

Mr. Elliot, I think you are being very generous with the term "hockey minds" if one of our youth coaches actually said Moorhead would win 8 out of 10. If that is the take away this person took from that game, not sure if they should be one of our youth coaches! :D This is how fake news gets generat...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Anyone that gets momentum going in their program could conceivably do it. Who would be most likely right now? Probably SCC followed by Mahtomedi, EGF, and Alex. That isn't the point I am making though. I am saying you can't kick teams out just because they are good. Isn't that getting back to the T...

Re: New Sheriff in 8AA??

I would say that bus legs/not being ready was definitely a factor for Moorhead. Roseau came out and dominated the first roughly 12 minutes of the game. At one point the shots were like 14-3 and Roseau had 4 goals. Moorhead made a push the last 5 minutes as usually happens in these types of games to...

Long thread but a little background and a few thoughts on Denfeld: Denfeld HS: Bad game tonight by Denfeld but also bad game by Virginia by many accounts. Denfeld still found a way to come back from 2 down to tie. With tie breakers in seeding, "win" goes to Denfeld. Denfeld only plays Virginia and ...

Re: New Sheriff in 8AA??

Things got turned upside down last night in Section 8AA with the 6-2 poleaxing of the Spuds at the hands of the Rams. Hope springs eternal for teams trying to knock off the king of the hill Sputniks. I need a ruling does 6-2 loss equate to a woodshed schooling? Have been using the term quite liberal...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Definitely agree with the Orange fans that Rapids is much improved this year. Other than a 2 minute stretch against Minnetonka when they lost their composure over a call they have played pretty solid hockey. The fact that they aren't getting outshot 55-7 most games is a good indicator. I don't thin...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

I see that Greenways woes are lack of scoring to date. What looked to be 2 formidable scoring lines has only amassed a 3.0 goal per game average. While last seasons unheralded line up was clipping along at 5.6 goals per game and a 2.2 goal against average. 3 per game ain't shabby if you can keep you...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Agreed. As far as 7AA is concerned, the Indians are a major player this year. I would say they are a player Knivvy, not sure about major though. CEC will contest the 3 spot with the Elks. Rapidly Declining in the 5th spot at 8 - 10 win season. Ugly section 7AA from years past. But that is ebbs and ...

Moorhead is better than expected but I still think the Brainerd Fightin' Andreses pull it out.
I would like to join that bandwagon Elliot but I think the Worriors will struggle to find consistency. At 2-3 can the Aus rally the boys
to the Saintly city?

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Gutsy win by Rapids last night scoring 4 unanswered goals to win 4-3. This team is leaps and bounds ahead of last year's mess , especially at this point in the season. Lots of young players but some good upcoming talent. It will be interesting to follow. Like your optimism but let's pump the brakes...
