Wednesday, November 21st Game Preview- Thanksgiving Eve

Two games on this Thanksgiving Eve.  Here we go…

Dodge County at North St. Paul/Tartan

Dodge County has started the season 2-0 with a really nice win over Cloquet-Esko-Carlton and then dominating Moose Lake.  This will be their third road game in a row to start the year.  In fact, they start the season with 5 straight road games!  That’s insane.  The scoring has been very balanced with 12 skaters registering points.  Olivia Smallbrook has been relatively quiet but I think that changes tonight.

NSP/T has played 5 games already with their lone win coming in the first game of the year vs. Jefferson .  In the most recent game they showed they don’t have any quit in them.  Down 0-4 after the first to Cambridge/Isanti they battled back by scoring 3 in the second and 1 in the third to force OT.  Unfortunately the comeback bid was extinguished when C/I scored 1:32 into the overtime period.  Lauren Henrikson will be looking to her teammates to add to the goal scoring.  Lauren has 4 of the 8 goals on the year.  That is not sustainable.  

Dodge County makes a long bus ride home a little easier by winning 3-1.  

Red Wing at Rochester John Marshall

Taylor Heise is as synonymous with Red Wing as boots.  But Red Wing still has their boots.  Red Wing has had a rough start to the year as they are searching for a new identity without their former star.  There will be lots of opportunities for goals tonight as each team is allowing just about 7 goals per game against.  The winner of this game might simply be the team who is willing to shoot from everywhere. If this happens I think it favors RJM.

RJM 6.  Red Wing 3.
