Bantam AA was insane this week. New teams in…upsets galore as teams hit their mid-winter wall.

Tonka wins the Moose Goheen against some stiff competition. The Skippers are finding their groove.

District two has a log jam at the bottom of the top-10. District games will matter down the stretch.

Osseo/Maple Grove makes a big move up this week from No. 4 to No. 2 after defeating previously ranked No. 7 Rock Ridge in a 3-1 battle this week. Woodbury rose from unranked to ranked No. 3, as the Predators defeated last week’s No. 5 Northern Lakes, and won the Fargo Buffalo Wild Wings Woodchipper classic this past weekend.

No. 1 Hermantown Blue picked up a quality 5-3 win this week over previous No. 4 Mahtomedi.

Hastings has been a big surprise team as of late, this week Hastings beat No. 6 Woodbury Black as well as No. 7 White Bear Lake Black. Hastings is up to no. 6 this week after defeating two top-ten teams. Red Lake Falls defeated some solid teams from the North this week by the likes of Warroad and EGF. The Eagles are in the top ten at No. 10 after a very solid year to date.

8. Prior Lake 6 W 10
9. Mahtomedi 2 LWW 8
10. Vacant

Not much movement inside the top eight this week. But after that, there are plenty of fireworks. Seems like no team wants the number ten spot. Teams like Andover, Eagan, Edina and Spring Lake Park all have some nice wins, but none had a week that screamed “Top 10”. Edina was the closest with a nice run in Roseau, but their previous week didn’t knock our socks off.

Things could get interesting this weekend. Several top teams are headed to East Grand Forks to play round robin hockey (East Grand Forks, Hermantown, Minnetonka, Moorhead and Woodbury). Top-two teams face each other for the chip on Sunday.

Peewee A
(Rank-Team-District-Last Week)

1. Proctor 11 WWW
2. Roseville 2 WLL
3. Northfield 9 W
4. Warroad 16 LWWWLW
5. Park-Cottage Grove 8 WWW
6. Marshall 4 TWW
7. River Lakes 5 WLWW
8. Thief River Falls 16 WW
9. Bloomington Jefferson 6 WTWL
10. Shakopee 6 WWWWW

The PWA top ten stays the same this week, as the top five teams either lose to each other or an AA team. One notable result within the top five is No. 2 Roseville drafting No. 4 Warroad by a score of 7-6 this past week. No. 6 Marshall is up one spot this week in the rankings, as the Tigers at 15-0-1 over their last 16 games. Marshall also defeated previously ranked No. 6 River Lakes by a score of 4-2 this week. Previously unranked Shakopee won the Breezy Point Ice Fest tournament this past weekend, which moves the Sabers into the top ten.

Peewee B
(Rank-Team-District-Last Week)

1. Osseo/Maple Grove (Black) 3 WW
2. Hermantown 11 W
3. Bemidji (Blue) 16 WW

6. Minnetonka (Blue) 6 W
7. Coon Rapids 10 WWW
8. East Grand Forks (Green) 16 WT
9. Anoka 10 W

Bemidji Blue gets moved up one spot this week to No. 3, the Lumberjacks are having a dream season with a record of 33-3 this year. No. 4 Minnetonka Black is back on the right track, currently on a five-game win streak. East Grand Forks Green are back in the rankings the week at No. 8. The Green Wave are 20-3-2 on the season. Anoka notched a huge win this week over previously ranked No. 3 Elk River. The Tornadoes enter the rankings for the first time this year at No. 9.

What a great weekend at the Squirtacular. We were blessed with all of the top teams in Squirt A this year. And, they put on a show in Blaine. Eight teams won their section trophies on Friday and Saturday and four made the final four Sunday AM. Tonka gets in Saturday after a narrow win and a Rogers/Moorhead tie and they swept past OMG, Andover and Woodbury Black to grab the #1 slot in the state.
