Section Finals Tonight

Recommended Posts

titelines

Anyone headed down to the Target Center to watch Minnetonka/Eden Prairie & Edina/Jefferson tonight? I'm planning to be there by 5:00 at the latest for tickets.

Predictions? I'm taking Mtka & Edina.

Can you catch these games on the radio?

I'm debating on going!

I'll take the Jaguars and unfortunately Eden Prairie to win.

It will be interesting to see how many attend this and if the move to Target Center from Rucci was the right call.

Good call both the favorites won last night convincingly.

The games were broadcast on myfoxtwincities website.

Yeah, the Mtka/EP game was actually really close until the third. Mtka. rolled three/four lines and seemed to wear EP down and really kept them in-check. They only outshot EP by 3-4 shots for the game, but they had much better scoring chances. Once they got up by two goals in the third, the air came out of EP's bubble and the game was essentially over. EP pulled the goalie with 3 minutes left and Tonka got an open netter, and the 7th goal was a good effort, but EP had really lost interest in playing defense at that point.

Jefferson really handed the game to Edina in the first period. Bad giveaways and turnovers and Edina just buried the chances they were given. I took off after the second period when it was 4-0 as it was obvious Jefferson wasn't really going to make a game of it.

Looking like a good field so far, with Duluth East qualifying last night. Should be another good tourney! Can't wait!

I guess its the best there is if you care about HM and WBL, to the rest of the state its just eh...another final between HM and WBL, its pretty much expected they will play in final at the behining of the year.

Just give you a hard time scsavre, can't bring myself the cheer for those private schools.

Private school or not, Hill has been playing really well lately. As much as I'd like to see WBL win, I'll say Hill wins 5-2.

The schools that really bug me are the private schools that play at the single A level like St.Thomas Academy.

Dang it bear, I thought we were on the same page. Honestly though, this rivalry is different than most. You can throw out the records cause it can always go either way. I remember in late 90's Hill was undefeated, WBL was a 500 team, and they won in double OT. It has happened so many times. It used to be meaner though, Hill used to get more guys from WBL.

I actually spent a little time playing for Hill and trust me I have heard everything there is to say about the private school advantage. It is funny cause I despise Holly Angles and Cretin is a waste of time.

It is tough to say which conference they should be in, cause enrollment wise they should be Class A, but talent wise obviously AA. Personally I think ST Thomas needs to move up to AA, I wonder if A likes having that power house there or something.

Wish this one was on TV,

Ha ha we are almost on the same page, I just have to cheer for every team that plays HM! No doubt HM WML is a huge rivalry but there are at least 10 other rivalries that could be considered the best in the state. I won't even try to say who is #1 and really there probably isn't a #1 because everyone has their favorites, lets just say it makes for some great hockey this time of year and leave it at that.

I also agree with an earlier post about some of those private schools who regularly beat AA teams but still play in the A state tournament, it just doesn't seem right. I think we all miss the one class tournament, too bad we probably won't see them again. In my dream world I would like to see one and only one 16 team state tournament. At the start of the year you opt in to play for state or not. The teams that don't man up can have their won little tournament somewhere for fun but it wouldn't be considered state. You could even seed the sections so the top teams get a bye or two so we don't run into any of those 25-0 scores.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
