Re: AA Championship: Hill Murray v Eden Prairie

I have to pull for the Pioneers from the east side. Coach Lechner is a class act, runs a great program, and his boys have always been well mannered and respectful when visiting our barn in Rapids. Go Green!

I could care less about the enrollment. All that matters is how many kids are currently Playing in your program the range schools including Grand Rapids are the same. both field a A team of some kind and a B team. So what’s your excuse now.
Exactly!

Re: 3 Privates & EP walk into a pub

There will be 4 great hockey games played today at the X. If people can get over ther names and zone in on the games, they can be entertaining. I think everyone should remember when watching these games, they are HIGH SCHOOL teams. Cant find anything else like it I guess for me, it's more that I ju...

Re: 7AA FINALS

Any of the 7AA hive think a certain 218 (team that sandbags 7A currently) will step up to the plate in 2022? If they were to win the state titles in peewee AA, bantam AA, and high school this and next season, they might give it some consideration, but I doubt it. They enjoy way too much, getting ki...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids got robbed on a score. Replay clearly showed it was in., but whistle blew & that's it. ER empty netter so it's 3-1 ER final. Sad. Does anyone have a video link for said controversial goal? Can it be found anywhere? Video in the rink does not have sound so we don't know when the whistle...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I believe Andover is going to reload with decent jv and bantam players coming in, its most likely a very bold statement on Elk River. As for Grand Rapids I took the time to reflect and Grand Rapids has had two awful teams the last few years it made me think a decent team was way better then it real...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

It looked like it was on the line when the goaltender got up. I don’t think it crossed. It was definitely in. Replay clearly showed that most if not all of the puck was across the line. Problem was the ref wasn’t behind the goal enough to see it cross and had blown the whistle. Goal judge would hav...

Rapids and Anoka scoreless after 1. Anoka goalie is playing very well according to KOZY. Several huge saves to keep GR off the board.
Rapids 4 Anoka 0. Shots 51 - 9.

I will say especially with CEC "Super Fan" folding the tent on AA hockey in early 2020. He should have played that card at post season theater.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

It would be huge, but there were actually a lot of Andover fans there last year for the final too. Student section was full and lots of other fans. They were louder than the East fans until late in the 3rd and Overtime. Then I would say the East fans were a little louder. If East wins and everyone ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Rapids is definitely locked in as we roll into sections. Playing lights out defense. Haven't allowed more than 2 goals in over a month. Clafton GAA below 1.70. Cloquet was getting pretty frustrated late in the game, couldn't buy a goal so laid a cheap cross check against Young in the closing minute...

Rapids at Cloquet on Tuesday, and I haven’t got a clue. At Duluth East for QF will be interesting that’s for sure. CEC won 5-4 in OT at home , and got hit by a Mac truck in Duluth 5-0. It will be a battle! I thought the Jacks looked pretty good at times against Hermantown. Young goaltender was pret...

Duluth East and Grand Rapids with big wins tonight, 7AA is alive. Very entertaining game. Both teams played fast. Rapids continues to play good defensively and getting great goaltending.

Re: Games Saturday 2-1-2020

Good take GI-80. It was a very satisfying game, especially once GR got fired-up midway through the second period. DelGreco is really a spark plug for this team. If he gets going it seems the rest of the team follows. Has anyone else noticed that a Rapids player always gets hurt by a Wayzata cheap s...

Re: Games Thursday 1-23-2020

It was a very good game. Rapids outshot the Spuds by a few and had many good opportunities in the third where they couldn’t get the shots on net...seems to be an ongoing problem for them. Fun game to watch between two solid teams.
