08-09 Week 6 Rewind

Random thoughts from the Friday and Saturday games of week 6 of the 08-09 season (1/9 and 1/10/09)

(Czar's note: 1/12/09) I forgot to add to my Prior Lake game article that the fire alarm went off just after the lineups were announced and before the tip. Nice job by the Prior Lake students to get in the "We're on Fire!" chant while we were waiting for the system to reset. Culprit? The popcorn machine to which the PA told everyone not to buy popcorn. Bad news for the concession stand.)

Friday:
  • Tartan wins by 11 at St. Thomas Academy. Luke Preiner with 11 for Tartan in that one. He wasn't in the rotation when I saw Tartan in their holiday tournament. STA short-handed with no Mike Ratelle. Mike Fitzgerald with 22 in the loss. Marc Sonnen with 18 in the win.
  • Apple Valley loses a close one at Chaska. They've lost 3 tough ones in a row now to Plainview-Elgin-Millville, Eden Praire and now Chaska. AV 22-37 from the line this week with the 2 losses by a total of 10 points. Jake White with 23 and 12 in the Chaska win. Thomas Schalk with 15 and 7 in the loss.
  • Cretin-Derham Hall handles Forest Lake with a big 2nd half. Seantrel Henderson with 22 and Raijon Kelly with 14 in the Raiders win. Zach Riedeman held to a season low of 11 in the loss, but he's still averaging 19.6 a night for the Rangers.
  • Roseville gets it done again with another 2 point home conference win. This one over Stillwater after beating Mounds View at home by 2 earlier in the week. Mike Muscala with 22 for Roseville. Ryan Duxbury with 8 for Stillwater. Don't look now but Roseville sits atop the Suburban East at 3-0 with Woodbury. Who would have guessed that. They go to CDH on Tuesday in a grudge match. Roseville beat CDH by 3 in the Catholic Spirit tournament.
  • Shelby Moats with 21 as Waconia wins at Holy Angels. The Stars loss makes them 1-9 with 4 games coming up that they probably won't be favored in.
Saturday:
  • Holy Family takes Waukesha, WI Catholic Memorial to OT before falling by 5. Nice performance by the Fire. TJ Bray and Derek Schnell make up a very nice backcourt for Catholic Memorial. Bray had 18 in the game.
  • Edina still rolling as they stay undefeated with a 3 point win over Jefferson.
  • Surprised Eagan took Northfield to OT. Charley Baker with 21 for Eagan as Jameson Parsons has been out of the box scores for a while now. Christian Shepley with 23 and Emmanuel Addo with 17 for Northfield.
  • Como Park blows a 19 point halftime lead against White Bear Lake at home for a 2 point loss. They give up 47 in the 2nd half after allowing 21 in the 1st half. Spencer Cummings with 28 for White Bear Lake. Reggie Ray with 17 for Como Park. Jordan Jackson, Joe Conley and Adrian Wackett all with 12 for the Cougars.
Be sure to check out my MN Preps column this week. I take a look at the Minneapolis City and St. Paul City conferences and some of the top games of the week around the state and metro.

If you missed any of the games I saw this week, here's the complete list.
