It is the ultimate irony that the strategy Plante used to build his legacy (collect banners by staying in single A) has turned out to be the very thing that has tarnished it. Karma indeed... :(

First things first, it's not easy. But when you win here, there is nothing better.
Congrats to the Hawks program for getting to the next level! Can't wait to see an East-Hermantown matchup. :D

Re: Falls beats Greenway

Falls beat Greenway 4-3 in OT. Falls was the better team. It actually should not have gone into OT as the refs missed a Falls goal as it barely crossed the goal line. It was clearly a goal before a Greenway reached in and pulled it out. Wow. Just gone done watching an excellent Virginia-Eveleth gam...

Wrong year for EP to be playing HT! I will bite. Why is that? Hermantown will reload and be Hermantown next year. Maybe cuz Htown reloads better than EP does? Keep in mind that next year's Hermantown seniors struggled when they were second year bantam AAs. We all know that bantam performance isn't ...

Not that it's at all strange for Herm to play AA teams, but I do wonder if this is a signal they are going AA next year.

Or is Duluth Marshall tired of having them win the Hilltopper classic every year, so they booted them out?

Anybody know the history of 7AA from 2000 on as far as teams in it? Thanks. If I remember correctly, Hibbing first went to A in 1994, then back up to AA from...

EGF gets the game winner with 40 seconds left to win 4-3. Shots were about 28 apiece. Good game between two evenly matched teams, but disappointing for Hibbing as EGF gave them several pps in the 3rd, but Hibbing was as disorganized as I've seen them.

GR let off the gas, but a goalie change by Hibbing after the first period at least stabilized the team a bit. GR was able to play their entire be...

I have no idea. All my info on Virginias injuries I get from mesabi community TV game broadcasts, which are excellent, by the way.

Well, Greenway has the #2 seed locked up. Hibbing with a bad 4-3 loss to Superior. They decided to take the 2nd period off and went into the third down 3-1. After cutting it to 3-2 with 7 minutes left, Lee takes a 5 minute major with a little over 5 minutes left. Hibbing gets a shorty to tie it 3-3 ...

"Side Note: At this point, I’m considering the 7A semifinal on the #2 and #3 side of the bracket to be the real 7A title game.
