WBL bantam AA. Top D in state OG,[not OLD Goalie], top five goalie TS. Six high end forwards . [rose/roed] these guys get hot could be tough for some varsity teams. [and no not a jab at any ]

The team you are describing does not exist in Bantams this year OG. There is no team people can have the "varsity" conversation about that people love to have. Sorry, But that's just a big dose of hyperbole.

Bantams is a mess this year. WBL, who as you say deserves to be rated #1 based on results so far, was taken to OT in one game and beaten in another by #28 (out of 45) Duluth East.

Elk River won the very difficult Blue Ox tournament then proceeded to lose their next 4 games.

It's going to be a very interesting post season.

It is still very early, first year players still becoming Bantams and teams finding their identity.

At this point WBL is top team from what I have seen, but would also agree that I wouldn't put them in the same class as MTKA from last year. Not the clear cut favorite to go wire to wire. A lot of parity. Several teams that could knock them off when it counts.

ER wins the OX (then losses 4 in a row), Hounds beat WBL then ER beats the Hounds 5-0 yesterday.

Strap in and enjoy the ride, it is going to be a fun season!
