Week 7 Friday night scoreboard watching

Scores that caught my eye from Friday 1/11

Conference Matchups

  • STA gets 8o in a win over Richfield in the Classic Suburban. Hill-Murray is on the board with a win over South St. Paul.
  • Burnsville beats Jefferson, Jaguars fall to 1-4 in the Lake and Burnsville stays 2 back with big league games next week against Rosemount and at Eastview. Kennedy keeps pace with Eden Prairie with a 5 pt home win over Rosemount. The Irish fall 3 back in the league race.
  • North beats South by 1 in the Minneapolis City, I'll see North vs Central later today in a very interesting non-conference game.
  • BSM gets taken to the limit by St. Francis, Cooper blows out Chisago Lakes (I thought Josh Figini could be a factor in this one) and St. Louis Park loses a tough one by 1 at Irondale. Now the top 3 teams in the N Suburban (BSM, Cooper and Spring Lake Park) are all 2 or 3 games clear. Spring Lake Park can get back in the race with a win at BSM next Friday night. BSM has Spring Lake Park, @Cooper and Minnetonka in a week stretch starting next Friday. TG's struggles continue as they fall to 1-8 with a 1 pt home loss to Fridley.
  • Osseo routs PC in the NW Suburban. I was at this game, 9 pt at the half and then Osseo slams the door to win by 25.
  • CDH needs OT to beat Woodbury on the road (10 3s for Woodbury) and Forest Lake only beat Roseville by 5 in the Suburban East. Stillwater survives Jake Lindstrom's 31 pts to beat Park by 6 and stay undefeated in league play.
  • In the Tri-Metro, the leaders roll on including Brooklyn Center who gets a 1 pt home win over Breck. Note to self, make sure to watch the rematch on tape. BC and Minnehaha are now 2 games clear in the Tri-Metro West. Congrats to DeLaSalle who's now on the board with a 23 pt home win over SPA. Hopefully Minnehaha gets their rest, they have less than 20 hours from the end of their game to their game later today vs MN Transitions. I once heard coach Johnson say that he'd let Transitions take all the 3s they wanted, I'll see if that comes true.
Other Games
  • The poll was accurate, Minnetonka beats Eden Prairie by 27. Only 5 pts for Ethan Wragge.
  • Elk River with an important section win over St. Cloud Tech in their home opener. Tough couple of nights for Tech as they suffer their 1st 2 losses on back-back nights. A Tech win over Moorhead on the 26th would really muddy the waters for the #1 seed in the section. Tech also has home and home with Brainerd remaining.
  • Buffalo pulls the 7 pt upset on the road at STMA. That's STMA's 1st loss and they're #2 in this week's 3A poll. 2 big wins in a row for Buffalo and they only lost by 3 at St. Cloud Tech. They're 4-1 in their last 5. 5-4 with losses to Armstrong and at Osseo and Maple Grove is a nice season.
  • Park Christian moved in the A rankings this week and they got beat by 7 tonight.
