This should be a really fun year.  We have some new faces as well as some of powerhouses back.  But I think overall this tournament is less predictable and more wide open in both classes than in previous seasons.  Enjoy and discuss the State Tournament here.

As is my custom, I went to the Mooch last Wednesday for the 2AA and 6AA finals - saw two very good games - both decided by one goal - and I think Blake and Eden Prairie will both make some noise.  Clearly I have not seen Andover so I can't speak for them, but I could see Blake winning the AA.

 

I used to broadcast Hutch games and would like to seem them do well - but being the #8 seed and playing Warroad in the quarters doesn't bode well for the Tigers.

PS - Thanks @CreaseAndAssist for the heads up on this book.  I am about  half way though it ... just getting now to most of the games/tourney's I remember from my youth - so it's getting really good - The perfect buildup to the tourney itself.

Two wipeouts in two Class A Quarterfinals so far.

 

You could knock me over with a feather 😉

...Aaaaand Warroad is in the process of making it 3-for-3.

 

Yay Hutch for making the record books though. When you allow a kid to tie a record John Mayasich set in 1951...that's not what they had in mind methinks 🤔 (5 points in one period)

Class AA should be a more evenly competitive bracket through the quarterfinals.  Class A IMO is a 3-horse race.  I don't think Mahtomedi can really threaten Warroad, St. Cloud Cathedral or Hermantown.

Blake got past MG by the skin of their teeth. 7-5 with an empty netter. Crazy third period

So, both teams I saw last week at the Mooch in the section finals have made the semis after today's matinee session.

My brackets are totally wrecked.  St. Thomas' goalie ruined that for me.  And then Hermantown crushed Cathedral to ruin Class A for me.  Hill-Murray and Eden Prairie should be an interesting match up, as I think Bill Lechner is the best coach in the tournament.  That team just executes so well and I like the puck movement they get from their defenseman; very efficient and smooth.  And Mahtomedi looked considerably improved from their quarterfinal performance against Delano.  I thought the Zephyrs looked a lot faster and more physical and certainly more confident.  I still think Hermantown has the edge, but it might be closer game than most may think.

Hermantown's coaching isn't too shabby either.

Way to go Great Clips - for coming through with the lettuce!

 

"Hairmantown has a new mayor...his name is Mike" 🤣

"The Hair B&B - and Jake left the key under the mat"

"The Sinatra Salad - Vinigrettes - he's had a few - but then again, too few to mention"

 

 

Here's THE team boys:

Wheww. Thankfully here in Finland hair and hockey have no connection whatsoever. I can keep my balding crew cut. Looks like it was a fun tournament, though 😁

Meh.  If it was Bruce Plante, I'd agree...but he's not there anymore.
