The Hawks are rolling with 13-0 and 9-1 wins over Hibbing and Virginia. Those types of game can lull a team a bit, especially if they are looking forward too much toward state rather than the sectional. Greenway won't be intimidated and will give it everything, but last year's state semi-final loss will have Hermantown more on their game. I'll predict 5-2 (EN) for Hermantown.

Should be good, too bad it's not being played in Bemidji.
I guess I will have to settle for Moorhead-Brainerd.

Talked to a friend that has a kid on the Hawks.
They are hoping they win. Not taking the Raiders lightly at all. They know they are good.
Hope its a good game and no one is injured.
Either way 7A will be well represented in St. Paul.

Last year's game between Hermantown and Greenway was a classic. But it's hard to see Greenway this time mounting a stiff challenge. Greenway was much better equipt last year to challenge and they couldn't close out the game with a 3-1 lead in the 3rd period. I think Hemantown wins 6-2 or something like that.

2-1 Hawks after 1. Great move by Biondi for the 2nd Hawk goal. Shots 22-11 Hawks, which is reflective of gameplay.

What a great game. Troumbly was the best player on the ice tonight. Great day for Northern Hockey and especially the Range. Huge congrats Raiders!

Greenway adopts Hermantowns approach bring in some outsiders, call on your alumni kids to come back and catch the overfed caged hawk ripe...

Wonderful win for Greenway; I could not be more pleased for the outcome of a game where the winner is not wearing orange and black. They earned this trip to the X.

The single A tournament just got a lot more fun and interesting. I guess I will be going to all the sessions after all.

What a night at Amsoil. Given last season's result I figured Greenway had a shot if they stuck around, but having seen this sort of game so many times before, I thought the Hawks would find some way to pull it out. Casadonte and friends had other ideas.

The Raiders won this game because their star players outplayed Hermantown's. Ben Troumbly, not Blake Biondi, was the best player on the ice tonight. He and Lawson are a dynamic duo and really got rolling in the second period, and had a number of excellent chances both then and in the first overtime. Pierce, meanwhile, was pretty quiet out of a few solid hits, and while Biondi scored a goal on an impressive individual effort and certainly had his dangerous moments, he also seemed to wander in and out of this game in ways that I hadn't seen him do before, including on the GWG when a stronger backecheck could have made a difference. He's an awesome player and he'll learn, but tonight the Raiders had a bit more tenacity.

Also, I found it a bit odd that Elliott Peterson was back on D for large portions of this game. He's played there before and did a solid job, but it seemed to sap Hermnatown's forward depth. That was already this team's weakness, in my opinion. Greenway seemed pretty comfortable when the Hawks' top line wasn't out there; their second line could just hold serve, and then Troumbly and Lawson could do their thing.

Lots of great defensive play in this one, too. Gotz was a rock for the Hawks, shutting down rushes time and again; Peterson was solid, too, as were Lantz and Miller for Greenway, and Elich is the unsung hero of this one for his rush that set up Lawson's game-winner. Great goaltending, as well; hard not to feel for Manahan, who had an incredible sequence in the first overtime to keep the game going.

What a performance by the Raiders, and congratulations on ending one of the great streaks of section dominance in HS hockey to earn their first Class A Tourney berth. I'm not sure how running two lines will hold up over three days in St. Paul, but if anyone can make it work, this team can. They should get seeded, perhaps #4 or #5 barring dramatic upsets elsewhere. Real credit to Coach Clafton, who seems to really take the Mike Randolph philosophy of a regular season as a 25-game experimentation period ahead of sections. He had some good lines in his postgame comments that got into the piece I did for the Hub.

Something about these Amsoil finals just gives us hockey at its best. Hoping for more of the same tomorrow night.

As a life long Vikings fan that is a slap in the face. The two teams are absolutely nothing alike.

The only way they would be alike is if the Vikes played their regular season games in the NFL and then went to NFL Europe and lost in the NFL Europe NFC Champsionship.

Putting your jerseys on hangers, pulling the Lou Holtz poor us routine and waiting for your opponent to pee themselves and fall over on their backs eventually bites you in the butt. Luverne nearly did it, Alexandria finally did do it.

Congrats to Greenway for standing up to this crap prior to the state tournament!
