West Fargo and EGF (which is actually a MN team) are fairly week at 12UA this year. Fargo 12UA is not as strong as they have been in past years. I don't know anything about Bismarck or Minot.

Lots of blow out games. Is there really this much differentiation in girls hockey. Has it always been like this or are things changing?

There always seems to be a few weaker teams in the Fargo tourney every year. The top 8 teams all had great games.

Also, the Fargo Tourney is one of the few that you can go undefeated and not place in the top 4.

I'm not sure about how things have always been, but this year, there are about 10-12 good teams and then a drop off. Most associations have at least 1-6 good players at the U12 level, but that doesn't do a team much good if you have 2 lines. The poor players will get picked on by better teams and distort results.

You also have to take into account that there are about 10-15 difference makers playing in the MN Made Choice League. Some of those girls don't play for their home associations precisely because of quality of the team. They would surely raise the quality of association play.

Fargo tournament

Post by zambonidriver » Tue Jan 06, 2015 12:55 pm

Was an interesting weekend. We played EGF, Fargo, Shakopee, and Roseau
we finished 2-1-1 some controversy on Fargo's Goalie. Didn't advance based on goal differential. Fargo was better than expected. Bad bounce lead to the tie against Shakopee, Roseau is really good their goalie is 5'10" and athletic. Lost 4-2 with empty netter we learned a lot about ourselves. Looking forward to the rest of the year.
