Week 10 Weekend Scoreboard Watching

Scoreboard watching from Thursday and Friday of week 10. I'll do the Saturday games as part of my Week 10 observations and Week 11 schedule post.
  • Armstrong and Minnetonka open the Classic Lake schedule with wins. Wayzata's only 2 losses are to Osseo and Minnetonka. I look forward to seeing them on Saturday vs Central which then takes them full tilt into conference play.
  • In the Classic Suburban, the 112-64 Sibley drubbing of Simley stuck out. Especially since Sibley was up 20 at the half and put up 63 in the 2nd half. That's backwards from what is normally seen in blowouts like this. And no that's not implying anything about running up the score (besides under very unique circumstances, I don't have a problem with it). Though it seems like starters stay in blowouts more now than they did when I played 15-20 years ago.
  • In the Lake, Apple Valley beats Rosemount again and Eden Prairie hangs on for a 5 pt home win over Eagan. Rosemount drops to 4-7 and 8th in the Lake, disappointing season for the Irish.
  • In the Minneapolis City, Roosevelt beats Henry (who had destroyed North who had destroyed Roosevelt, so much for logic in this case). Super sophs Jordan Hughes and Louis Cox only combine for 11 pts and Henry was down 46-25 at halftime, wow. Now the top of the league is a 3 way tie with Henry/Washburn/Roosevelt 4-1 with North 1 game back.
  • In the Missota, Prior Lake gets a home win over Shakopee to move the Sabers out of the 1st place tangle at the top. Prior Lake up 16 at the half and were led by Tor Anderson's 18 pts.
  • In the North Suburban, Columbia Heights pulls the 3pt home upset on Spring Lake Park and Cooper goes to Irondale and gets beat as Irondale wins the 2nd half of that game 41-26. Irondale holds Rodney Williams Jr to 18 pts. Irondale moves into 3rd place alone in the league and Cooper is now tied with BSM at the top 3 games clear.
  • In the NW Suburban, Maple Grove goes to Coon Rapids and gets beat to give Osseo a 2 game lead and put Coon Rapids and Champlin Park only 1 game behind MG for 2nd.
  • Forest Lake goes to Park and gets blown out by 19. Stillwater only gets 14 from Joel Armstrong but they still get a nice 10 point home win over Mounds View which takes them thru the 1st rotation of league play undefeated. Forest Lake's loss makes them 3-5 in a 3 way tie for 5th, 1 game behind Woodbury for the best of the rest distinction in the league. So you've got a Forest Lake team that isn't doing well in their league, ditto Cambridge-Isanti in the Mississippi 8 (6th) and those are the only 2 teams above 500 in section 7AAAA. That shows how wide open that section is. I've already been on 3 bandwagons in the section, I'm ready to jump again. At this rate, I'll pick every single team in the section to win it at 1 point or another.
  • St. Bernard's with a 3 pt win at Minnehaha (Thursday). In addition to their loss on Thursday at CHOF, BC comes home and loses to St. Agnes. BC has lost 4 of 5 and their next 2 games are trips to Breck and Minnehaha. Breck also puts up 83 on St. Anthony. So now the Tri-Metro West is really interesting. BC and DLS are tied in the loss column and Minnehaha is only 1 game back. Bernard's is rolling in the East 3 games up with all the other Saints (except St. Elsewhere) 1 game behind Concordia in the loss column for 2nd.
