08-09 Week 1 Review

So Week 1 is in the books for the 08-09 Season. Here's what caught my eye.

  • Player of the Week: Chris Palmer of Bethlehem Academy. 37 and 19 in the 4 point win at SW Christian. They played without Jordan Clark in that game too.
  • Zach Towle with 47 at home for Concordia in a tough 1 point loss to Mahtomedi.
  • Dyami Starks continues to fill it up. 28 points in a 2 point loss to Eastview.
  • Charlie Baker 30 and Jameson Parsons 16 in Eagan's win over Park. They go to Eden Prairie on Tuesday.
  • St. Anthony's juniors Derek Jahner with 26 and Josh Pratt with 20 playing well in the 4 point loss to Irondale. Rayveen Banks with 16 for Irondale in the win.
  • Rob Daul with 22 in Hill-Murray's win over Holy Angels. Nice win for Hill-Murray.
  • Jordan Hughes with 36 in Henry's win at Totino-Grace. The Patriots host Hopkins on Tuesday.
  • CHOF on the road gets 29 from post Nate Fiscus and holds Jordan Smith to 3, but Orono still wins 66-62.
  • Deron Murphy 23 points, but Prior Lake gets 20 from Ben Snyder to beat Kennedy by 7.
  • Dajon Newell with 20 as Lakeville North puts up 92 on Woodbury. North's frontline with Bemidji St recruit David Berthene gets the attention, but Newell had a big summer for the MN Fury South 16U team.
  • Edison back to back losses as they lose to DC Everest after a loss to Blake on Thursday.
  • Josh Figini with 46 for Chisago Lakes in their 9 pt OT win at Princeton.
  • 54 all was the halftime score of the Como Park at Forest Lake game. Final was 99-85 Forest Lake. I never expected a Forest Lake game with that many points. 6 in double figures for the Rangers (Zack Riedeman with 20). Jordan Jackson and Reggie Ray with 25. Joe Conley with 10. Ray and Conley are guys I pointed out from last year's Twin Cities JV Game.
  • Nice win for North (St. Paul that is) over Roseville. Josh Bennett with 19, Charlie Choinere with 18. Mike Muscala with 19 in the loss for Roseville.
  • No Jay Sewer in the box score for Richfield in their win over Rochester Century. Philip Freeman with 24 in the win.
