Week 3 observations and week 4 schedule

Other random observations from week 3.

Hutchinson vs BOLD. Hutchinson has a talented kid, but he threw up 2 bad NBA 3s and made 2 horrible and uncalled for fancy behind the back passes that ended up in TOs. With a UW-Superior scout in attendance too. Hutch is OK and they played an effective 1-2-2. BOLD is nothing to write home about.

Nice game for Armond Battle of BSM with 34 vs Hopkins.


Winona Cotter has another nice team and they beat up on a bad Highland Park squad (final score was 14 pts but it wasn't that close). Patrick Bowlin got his 1000th career point in the game for Cotter which was a nice moment.

CHOF beats up on Bethany. CHOF's 1-2-2 full court press was nasty and gave them a 32-2 run. Jeff Ray of Bethany does a nice job of trying to keep his kids spirits high as it will be another long year for this traditionally strong program. Hopefully their PG's ankle injury won't be too serious.

Week 4 Schedule:

Monday: Oh Day Aki at Roosevelt (boys/girls doubleheader at 6 PM). St. Croix Lutheran at Concordia could be very entertaining if the game is anything like their 2 high scoring matchups last year.

Tuesday: Shakopee at Washburn, other games of interest are Minnetonka at Sibley, Henry at Hopkins, Orono at AHA and TG at Chisago Lakes .

Wednesday: Stillwater at Johnson. Always good to see Joel Armstrong of the Ponies play.

Thursday: Osseo at South. Looking forward to seeing the Orioles for the 1st time this season.

Friday: Holy Family at Minnehaha and possibly the afternoon game at the Target Center (St. Clair vs Truman). Other games of note include Sibley at Hopkins, Shakopee at Mounds View. CDH at STA, Rochester Mayo at Tartan

Saturday: A light schedule because of the holidays but 2 good ones. St. Michael-Albertville at Spring Lake Park (2:00) . The other game is St. Bernard's at Como Park (12:30)

  1. There's a slight chance that I may make the St. Croix-Concordia game.

  2. Have you noticed MCA's schedule? The vast majority of their games in the first half of the season will be played at home. 3-0! Undefeated! We're gonna take section 4A!

  3. "St. Croix Lutheran at Concordia could be very entertaining if the game is anything like their 2 high scoring matchups last year."

    I showed up with 8 minutes left in the game, and it was high scoring but only on one side. Concordia was too much for SCL. Zach Towle is fun to watch but I also paid attention to the guy who looks like Screech from Saved by the Bell. His last name is Peterson but fans were chanting "Screech!"

    I didn't have to pay, but there weren't any programs left lying around and I didn't even pay attention to the final score. The game was well decided by the time I arrived.
