My apologies to my friend and loyal reader Marty from Sartell who pointed out that I only did 16 score predictions when there were 17 games. Of course, I missed the Sartell/Sauk Rapids at Cloquet-Esko-Carlton. Sorry Marty!
I had 4 of the 16 incorrect. Let’s focus on those.
Eveleth-Gilbert at Woodbury
I figured this would be a close one as I had it at 2-1 in favor of Woodbury. Real life was a 3-3 stalemate. Woodbury held an almost 2:1 margin on shots. Through 2 periods Woodbury had a 1-0 lead. Eveleth scored two to open the third and take a one goal lead. Woodbury answered with two more of their own to take back the lead until Eveleth’s Anna Seitz scored her second of the game with just under 2:00 to play to tie it up.
Eden Prairie at Chaska/Chan
I had this one at 4-2 for EP. This one also ended in a 3-3 tie. The first two periods was all Chaska/Chan as they held the lead in goals at 2-1 and in shots at 24-19. Eden Prairie opened the third with a quick goal to even the game at 2s before taking the lead on a Nora Wagner goal. The lead was short lived as CCs Katelyn Roberts scored a couple minutes later to even it up at 3s.
Sydney Langseth has 1 and 2 for the Eagles. 6 skaters each had a point for the Hawks.
Simley at Dodge County
This was my upset special of the week as I predicted a 3-2 Simley victory. It did not come to fruition. This was all Dodge County. 5-0 final score. Shots were 28-14. Kennedy Kraus had the hatty. Sky Hughes with the shutout.
Princeton at International Falls
I had this one at a 3-3 tie. I figured Princeton has Maddy Peterson. But they have a hard time keeping the puck out of their net. I thought that combo might produce a tie. I was wrong. The final was 5-2 for the Tigers but I have no color to add as the box score has not been updated.
Ashley Schintz had 2 and 2. Rilee Winters had 3 assists. Madelyn Skelton had 2 goals and Sydney Nuelel had 2 helpers as Cambridge came back from a 1-3 first period deficit to win 5-4.
Kylie Melz and Lacey Martin each had 1 and 2 in Minnetonka’s 5-0 win over Proctor Hermantown.
Hannah Corneliusen had the lone goal for Warroad in their 1-0 win over South St. Paul. Warroad is 9-0 on the year. Goalie Quinn Kuntz has 8 shutouts in those 9 games!
Danielle Burgen had 1 and 3. Jenna Lawry had 3 and 1 and Grace Devries had 1 and 2 in Chisago’s 7-4 win over Western Wisconsin.
Julia Blum got her first Varsity goal and Grace Johnson had 2 assists as Blake beat Jefferson 8-1.
Delaney Johnson had 1 and 2 in Champlin Park/Coon Rapids 5-1 win over Duluth.
Kate Helgeson had 1 and 1 and Kiana Flag had the shutout in Roseau’s 3-0 win over Buffalo.
