I'm excited to see what Kyle Rau has to show for himself for Eden Prairie. They are the favorites to win it but the cake eaters were too in 09 and got beat by the Spuds, so anything can happen.

ok so what channel is the tourney on, its usually on forty5 (45) but I have direct and don't have it. Any help appreciated.

I'm also excited to watch Rau play, you could see the talent when they won state when he was a sophmore. Should be fun to watch him this time around, I can't wait to see him in a Gopher uni.

In Bji, with an antenna, we do not get channel 45. However, if you go here kstc45.com and scroll down, you'll see a red box to click on to watch the State Tourney online. The direct link is prep45.kstc45.com

CBROOKS-as a former Hermantown Hawk, there's nothing I would love more than for the boys from TRF to hand the private schoolers from Breck their lunch on a platter. I'm still bitter about Breck winning the ship last year

It will be a big upset for TRF to beat Breck. They have some future stars on that team.

I'm also pulling for the Spuds in AA.

H-town wins 5-1. Alex was up 1-0 early in the 2nd but by the time I checked back (2nd intermission) Hermantown popped in 5.

I'll take New Ulm plus the 9 1/2 against STA......

Other than that ...St Thomas wins the class A portion easily.

Class AA

Quarterfinals: Thursday, March 10

Edina vs Blaine (11 a.m.)Blaine wins 4-3 in OT

Duluth East vs White Bear Lake (1 p.m.) I look "hope" for Duluth to choke this one away late.....3-2 WBL....

Eden Prairie vs Lakeville North (6 p.m.) 57 saves won't be enough for the Lakeville goalie "Lingren" in this one....4-1 EP

Eagan vs Moorhead (8 p.m.) Not sure on this one but I'm hoping Eagan can stun the Spuds and send them packing as is the norm for da spudster's : )

They lost to Eagan in sectional finals 1-0. They also lost to Eagan twice in the regular season by 1 goal each game. Eagan had the #1 seed so I don't know if there was a upset but two good teams battling for a spot at the Xcel.

Pier, how do you figure St Thomas Academy is going to "easily" take the Class A title? Hermantown has shown they can play with the big dogs, especially when they went into Eden Prairie's (#1 rank in class AA) rink and took them into overtime. If anything, it will be a great game. I don't see any team in class A "easily" taking home the ship.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
