Class A QF: #5 Delano vs. #4 Greenway

Post by karl(east) » Sun Mar 03, 2019 9:53 am

#5 DELANO VS. #4 GREENWAY/NASHWAUK-KEEWATIN
8:00 Wednesday
-The team that beat the defending state champs plays the team that beat this season’s #1 in the Class A nightcap. Delano won a regular season meeting 4-3, and both come into this game with some momentum.

Delano (17-9-2, #15, 2-seed in 2A)
State appearances: 2 (first in 2017)
Key section win: 2-0 over #10 Orono
-The Tigers enter the Tourney on a hot streak, as they are undefeated in their last ten, and pulled a mild upset of defending state champion Orono in the 2A final. Goaltender Aaron Kruse (30) was the star of their run through sections, as he posted three straight shutouts. The offense isn’t as flashy as Greenway’s, but they get steady production out of two lines, with the forward corps led by Hogan Williams (12), Adam Brown (13), Quinn Daly (28), and Joseph Blanchard (21). Jack Keranen (3), a sophomore, leads their charge from the blue line. With continued steady production and great play from Kruse, they have the pieces to be tough out, even if they don’t have the flair of Greenway or Mahtomedi.

Greenway/Nashwauk-Keewatin (15-13, #9, 3-seed in 7A)
State appearances: 10 (7 one-class, 1 Tier II, 1 in AA; last in AA in 2001)
State championships: 3 (one-class Tournament, 1967 and 1968; Tier II, 1992)
-The Raiders are the state’s goliath-slayers after toppling top-ranked Hermantown in the 7A final, and give the Iron Range its first Tourney entrant since 2011. They roll just two lines and four D, but there’s a lot of talent in that group, led by the dynamic offensive duo of St. Cloud State recruit Ben Troumbly (8) and Casadonte Lawson (13). Nikolai Rajala (19) anchors a tough second line, and a solid defensive corps includes a second future Husky in Christian Miller (12) and Cameron Lantz (10). Logan Wright (24) was a hero in goal in sections. If their depth can hold up over the course of the Tourney, this team has enough quality parts to make a run.

These are great game summaries, Elliott. I think just about every fan without an interest in another team will be rooting for Greenway. This should be the best quarterfinal game of Wednesday, but Greenway probably has too much front end talent for Delano to contain.

Hoping Greenway hasn't already won their championship and take momentum deep into the tourney.

I think the TV timeouts are key for Greenway. That was how they kept Troumbly Rajala and Lawson rested. Lots of whistles are their friend this weekend.

Raider nation!! Meanwhile, I’m in negotiations with “The Rader Nation” of the NFL’s Raider Fan to show up in their gear for this one. “Stay tuned”. Ps. “Chucky” too would be kool

Just an idea. . .focus on your D1 team, or satisfy your man crush and go coach Greenway. What purpose does it serve a D1 coach to go on a rambling dissertation about a below average HS hockey team?

Absolutely not. Has 7A Ever had a team that played at Mariucci?

Yes? Ever heard of 2005 Virginia? 2003 Hibbing? Would you like me to continue?

Nice work, Raiders!! Was getting worried Delano's opportunistic offense and sharp goaltending might spur an upset, but Greenway smothered them more and more as the game went on.

Hopefully Raiders are sharp from the get go on Friday.

Way to go greenway or should we call you taconite? I remember playing a all star team in 67 68 from Greenway' nashwaulk 'keewatin ' marble' we just called them taconite.

What a great game. This game was what the state tournament was always about. The AA tournament will be good also.

Greenway will be the story of 2019. =D>

What an asinine comment. Ya mean the dude can't have some fun, or you can't enjoy a man in command of the moment? Maybe Frank should be coaching your favorite D1 team that continually fails, though it has a pipeline to the best HS talent in the state.

If that's your definition of being "in command of the moment," we clearly won't be agreeing on a whole lot.
