Thief River Falls 3, East Grand Forks 1

Khloe Lund figured in all three goals for the Prowlers, who skated past the Green Wave on home ice in Thief River. Lund assisted on Bella Amiot’s goal in the opening frame, then added one of her own - which ended up being the game winner - just 16 seconds later, before assisting on Thief Rivers third and final goal in the second period. The Prowlers dominated the shot clock, ending up with a 37-18 advantage. Their goaltender, senior Gabby Steele, was near perfect in net, stopping 17 of the Green Wave's 18 shots, giving her a save percentage of .944.


This was our lone game of the night, and going in it was a tossup according to our panel, with four getting it right...and four getting it wrong. Interestingly, KRACH was one of the latter, so I suppose you might say that the final result was a bit of an upset.

Our next two featured games are not until Thursday, and from there it builds to three on Friday and then five in our 'grand finale' on Saturday, when our Week 4 contest winner will likely be decided.

Wayzata 7. Benilde-St. Margaret’s 2
Disappointing one-sided loss for Benilde. Coming into this game the young Red Knights squad had posted eight straight victories. But is was Wayzata’s Kaci Johnson who led the Trojans with two goals and an assist. Wayzata nearly doubled up BSM in the shots department, 43-22.

No surprise to our esteemed group, all of whom thought the Trojans would come out on top in this one.

Maple Grove 5, Hill-Murray 2
The No. 10AA Crimson were led by sophomore Tristanna Tatur, a Quinnipiac recruit, who’s hat trick assured a non-conference win over No. 9AA Hill-Murray. And with her two goals and one assist, Emma Larson also figured heavily in her team's big win.

In this week's prognosticator's contest, Pucker88 was the only one of our group who saw the Crimson beating the Pioneers – good call!

Three interesting matchups on tap tomorrow, which should lead to a little separation between our nine contestants this week!

Rochester Lourdes 6, East Grand Forks 4
Clara Billings’ scored twice and assisted on two others to lead the visiting Eagles over the host Green Wave. Emma Schmitz also scored twice, with both coming in the third period, and the last with just one second left, to seal the victory. Aleah Hangsleben had two goals for the Green Wave, who narrowly outshot Lourdes 23-21.

Our nine contestants were pretty evenly split in this one, with a 5-4 majority favoring East Grand Forks. Coming into the game, Let’s Play Hockey rankings had Lourdes at No. 8 in Class A, with the Green Wave right behind them at No. 9. As it turned out, the ratings were very accurate.

Blake 7, Breck 3 (Rivalry Game!)
The No. 1AA ranked Blake Bears skated past the No. 2A Breck Mustangs in this week’s 'Rivalry Game'. Gopher recruit defender Madeline Wethington led the way for the Bears with two even strength, unassisted goals, and Cornell commit Lily Delianedis had a goal and an assist for what’s proven to be a very strong Blake team, new to Class AA but who are now 18-1 since their second game of the season.

Blake’s win was no surprise to our esteemed group, all of whom had them beating Breck in this week's Rivalry Game.

Eden Prairie 4, Brainerd/Little Falls 2
Minnesota State recruit Sydney Langseth, with a goal and two assists, led the way for the visiting Eagles in an interesting South-North showdown between No. 6AA Eden Prairie and No. 5AA Brainerd/Little Falls. An interesting dynamic played out, as the Eagles scored twice in the first period to take a 2-0 lead, with the Flying Warriors tying it up at 2-2 with the only two goals of the second. But it was EP’s Claire Kuipers who found the net for the winning goal in the third, in a very closely contested game between two very evenly ranked and highly skilled teams.

This was a major upset, at least in the eyes of our group, who favored the Flying Warriors – at home - by a 6-3 margin. But it was not meant to be, and so heading into our final five games tomorrow, our Leaderboard looks like this:

1. massalsa – 5 (the only one to get all three games tonight correct – great job massalsa!)

2. Lake South Alum – 4
LZ94 – 4
Pucker88 – 4

5. Three tied at 3

9. One at 2

Until our big finale tomorrow, with 5 games on tap!

I see we're all starting off Saturday's games with a big O-fer, as unranked Chaska/Chan defeats No. 16AA BSM 2-1 (game stats are as yet unavailable). Everyone had the Red Knights winning this one, so zero points all around. :oops:

Chaska/Chanhassen 2, Benilde-St. Margaret's 1
Sophie Pawlyshyn’s goal midway through the second period proved decisive as the Storm Hawks upset the Red Knights in a Metro West Conference matchup at the Chaska Community Center. Lily Hanson was excellent in goal, stopping all but one of BSM’s 21 shots.

As mentioned above none of us predicted a Storm Hawks’ victory.

Sartell/Sauk Rapids 2, Thief River Falls 1
Anna Orth’s two goals, both in the first period, were all the Storm'N'Sabres needed to defeat the visiting Prowlers. The home team put up a whopping 44 shots on goal, but Prowlers' goaltender Faith Porter was solid, stopping all but two of them.

Seven of nine picked the Storm’N’Sabres to win – not bad!

Edina 5, Minnetonka 4
Lucy Bowlby’s two goals led the Hornets over the Skippers in a Lake Conference battle at Braemar Arena. Kayley Crawford had a goal and an assist for Tonka.

Everyone on our panel had Edina coming out on top in this one, and if we were predicting scores I would guess that most would have said Edina by a larger margin.

Shakopee 3, Farmington 2
Olivia Grabianowski and Paige McNeil scored just 38 seconds apart in the 3rd period in a come-from-behind win for the Sabres. McNeil had opened the scoring in the first period with a power play goal just two minutes in. For the game Farmington more than doubled up Shakopee in shots, 34-16, but had a hard time solving Sabres’ goaltender Brianna Eastman.

Just 3 of 9 predicted a Shakopee win – could prove to be a real difference-maker in our contest. Pretty amazing that with this result the first four games today were all decided by a single goal.

Burnsville vs. Lakeville North
Still no score for this 3:00pm start – final scoring for Week 4 is still TBD.

Lakeville North 3, Burnsville 2 (OT)
How fitting that we end the week with another one goal game, this one taking overtime to determine the winner. It was Sydney Antonakis who came up with the game winning goal JUST 3 SECONDS BEFORE THE OVERTIME PERIOD ENDED. Wow, how exciting that must have been for the young lady and her team. And how disheartening it surely was for the Blaze...

This final result also determined who came out on top in our Week 4 contest. Our group was very evenly divided in this one, with 5 favoring Burnsville, and 4 who (correctly) thought the Panthers would prevail. And with his Panthers pick it was Lake South Alum who takes 1st Place - nice job Lake South Alum on some very fine prognosticating.

1. Lake South Alum - 8 points

2. LZ94 - 7
massalsa - 7

4. Mr. KRACH - 6
zooomx - 6

6. MNHockeyFan - 5 :oops:
pucker88 - 5
goaliedad31 5

9. One other - 4

One more chance to redeem myself - look for Week 5 to be up shortly.
