11 games on the calendar. Here are a couple…
Brainerd/Little Falls at Roseau
After losing their season opening game to Cloquet the Warriors of Brainerd/Little Falls have gone unbeaten in their last six games going 5-0-1 over that stretch. Lindsey Booth is refocused this year and is off to a great start leading the team with 15 points. Cheyenne Abear has 12 points and Gabbie Smith and Abby Pohlkamp each have 10. They have a very balanced attack with 13 players at 4 points or more over 7 games. Olivia King has been great in net with a 1.54 GAA and .926 SV%.
Roseau has 9 wins in 10 games with their lone loss being a one goal loss to defending Class A State Champ Breck. Kayla Santl has improved her play making abilities and leads the team in goals AND assists- 10 and 11 to be exact. Goalie Kiana Flag has 1.67 GAA and .918 SV%.

St. Paul United at Rochester Lourdes
St. Paul United’s season has been a roller coaster so far. Nice wins over Alexandria and East Grand Forks. But some head scratching losses to Chaska/Chan and Minneapolis. Which SPU team shows up tonight? Kerin and Hoops will need to step up their production in order for the team to have some sustained success.
Rochester Lourdes is 4-4-1 on the year. Although they are a Class A team they have scheduled some tough Class AA teams such as Eden Prairie, White Bear Lake, and BSM. They end the regular season with Wayzata, by the way!
