Christmas Tournament Previews Part II (3 day events)

Now we get to the big time events, these are the 3 day events and they are all Th-Sat. With the exception of the Breck event, these are all 8 team events. Breck is a round robin event with 4 teams.

Bethel: Sibley will roll to the championship game on their side, Eden Prairie has a tough opener against Minneapolis North and then will have to go thru Mounds View to get to the championship game. Sibley vs Mounds View or Eden Prairie will be a wonderful championship game.

Catholic Spirit (St. Thomas): Armstrong vs CDH is a 4:45 quarterfinal matchup that will be great. Johnson wins their opener against Woodbury but gets beat by New Orleans St. Augustine. St. Augustine vs the winner of the CDH/Armstrong game will be a very good final.

Joe Hutton (Hamline): STA vs Washburn in a quality opener. Montevideo gets a bad break having to play Hopkins in the night cap. A STA/Hopkins rematch in the championship is good, but I don't expect the near upset that we had last year.

Tartan: Prior Lake vs Spring Lake Park is a good opening day game with the winner playing Elk River. Tartan rolls on their side of the bracket and wins the championship.

Hastings: Minnetonka rolls to the final on their side of the bracket. Henry vs Rosemount in the semis could be interesting. Tonka vs Henry in the final should be fun.

Breck: Breck goes 3-0, PACT surprises one of the 2 city schools and all 4 teams win a game.

  1. I overheard Kenny Novak last night who said that Montevideo "insisted on playing Hopkins."
