I'll second Roseau-Warroad. Neighboring towns, both of them being hockey powerhouses, and both of them having lots of history in the state tournament. It doesn't get any better than that.

By far Roseau-Warroad.

I went to high school in Elk River and Elk River-Moorhead was pretty big.

Biff - did you see that Elk River- Moorehead section finals game that went 4 OT? I was at that game, probably the best hockey game I've ever seen, high school, college, pro anything. I think the Elk River goalie had over 60 saves. What year was that? 95, 96?

I'll agree the northern rivalries are the best, but how 'bout in town?

Hill Murray and White Bear Lake always seemed to meet in the section final, and it always seemed to go into OT.

Never a dull game, and even reg season games were fun as Aldrich was always packed.

One of the best that I can think of was the Hibbing vs. Grand Rapids games back in the early 80's. Any of the section 7 games were all cross town battles.

The Duluth Cathedral teams of the late 60's against the world.. They played as an independent against anyone in the state then went on to win I think it was 4 catholic state championships. They would play Duluth East and fill the Arena over 5000 people. Unheard of for high school hockey then.

edina and tonka

jefferson and burnsville

those were two powerhouse rivalries in the late 80's early 90's. Growing up in the metro, the jaguars were the dream team to beat.

I was at that game. I didn't go to many games in high school because I played basketball but that game was at St. Cloud State and there was no room to stand or sit. I can't remember what year that was. Maybe 1994 because I was in 9th grade when it happened. Great game.

D. East CEC is my favorite, but Warroad Roesau has to be the biggest.

Greenway-Grand Rapids Two schools whose students are neighbors and rivals, the kids often knew the guys on the other bench at least by reputation. Big School Small School, Rich hockey tradition dating back decades for both, Plus it is on Da Range.

Team Otter

I would agree with all the "Roseau-Warroad" chat but being that I played for Grand Rapids, I'm going to have to go with Greenway and Grand Rapids. However, the rivalry isn't near as storied as it once was.

Only thing is greenway hasnt really been able to compete with grand rapids the last couple years. Speaking of Cec duluth east that game is coming up next thursday. East got beat by white bear in overtime yesterday and Cec beat white bear 3-0 today so that will be a good game. Being from cloquet im gonna have to go with cec. grin.gif

Hey Biff, you know who I am. That was a great game! Do you remember the mascot fight before the game? Remember who that was? LOL smile.gif (not me, but it was a friend of ours)

I'll go with Roseau v. Warroad and Grand Rapids v. Greenway. The Falls, entering their 60th year of high school hockey, played Hibbing recently for the 121st time. The record stands 67-50-4 in favor of the Falls.

I was at the ER-Moorhead game, too. Matt Cullen, now in Charlotte, was a big gun for Moorhead. He had a couple good seasons for St. Cloud State. That night, the Gophers were in town to play SCSU and I was thinking that game would be delayed.

I didnt know the Falls hadany rivalries. They were a dynasty for a time so I guess they would get some one to match up against.

Another vote for Roseau v. Warroad.

My dad played for Roseau in the mid 50's, so we make it a family tradition to watch these two teams go at it.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL 
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
