Re: Single A Top 20 12/29/2019

Mahtomedi knocks off STA tonight without Hagstrom playing. We know Hagstrom will return at somepoint.

Dont Sleep on them. Big Win minus a star player!

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I was not comparing the Warroad of the last decade to Hermantown. However, it is funny the last time the Warriors were good they had one line of Bethune, Roth and SLyvester who were all move-ins and not warriors. Warroad from 94-08 was Exactly what Hermantown is today. They played AA teams during t...

One Last time.... I am comparing Modern day Hermantown to the Warroad teams of the past.... Not current or last decade From 94-08 The Warriors doimnate dClass A like Hermantown is now.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Biggest difference this year is they didn’t even bother with the Base. Biondi and Pionk are the only two Hermantown kids who are contributing to the scoring. This is truly an All Northern MN AAA team. The good news, (Hope) is that this rarely works when teams bring in these short term rentals to tr...

Re: Games Friday 1/3/2020

Hermantown face-punching SCC 4-1 after 1. Hawks up 5-2 now. SCC punches back. 5-5. Appears to be a 5-5 tie. What a fantastic battle between the All-Stars from a metro area of 194,000 vs the All-Stars from a metro area of 278,000. I'm sure this is exactly what was envisioned when Class A was created...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Why is it so difficult for people to realize that Hermantown does not have a magical potion or secret sauce, it is simply they have a good base program and then add a few of the areas top squirts, pee wees, bantams, and hs players every year. Simply put it is a numbers game. They take there base an...

Re: Single A Top 20 12/29/2019

Hermantown’s tie with Cathedral must make the Very Normal. Apparently Cathedrals demise was greatly exaggerated. Those two teams are far and away the two best in Class A. Warroad might take exception; they're undefeated and did handle Cathedral 5-2 earlier in the season. Wow Hermantown was up 5-1 o...

Good rankings, but until someone knocks off Warroad, I would have them at #1. This is coming from a guy to the west too! I totally understand that position, and it’s a debate I have with myself nearly every week. Warroad has defeated the two teams ranked right behind them, along with TRF. Hermantow...

Sorry a little late to the Week 4 Rankings. I think we are starting to figure things out better. Hermantown and Warroad look to be above the rest for now. 1. Hermantown (6-1-1) The Hawks destroyed two very good Class A Teams. This team looks to be angry after having two years, not in their normal Cl...

They were in 8A in 2017 when the Lightning made a decent run through the regular season. That said, if you listen to our show regularly, I am confident with how...

Its a tough place to play. T...
