08-09 Week 11 Rewind

Here's what caught my eye from the end of week 11 of the 2008-2009 season.
  • Brooklyn Center 1-2 this week without Freddie Young. That 1 win was by 1 point over a Breck team that has lost 8 out of 10.
  • Dylan Rodriguez with 42 for Blaine in a win over Anoka. The Bengals travel to Champlin Park on Tuesday. Continue to watch Blaine to see if they can make a run in section 7AAAA.
  • Speaking of section 7AAAA. Forest Lake needed 2 OT to win at section rival Duluth East. But remember that the Rangers had a tough game against White Bear Lake on Friday night.
  • Jake White with 22 for Chaska in a home upset of Lakeville North. But Chaska matches up really well with Lakeville North's size.
  • Charlie Baker back for Eagan as they get a home win over 2-18 Kennedy. Deron Murphy last played January 27th for the Eagles.
  • Elk River with the upset of Maple Grove in OT. Bad loss for Maple Grove as they still had a chance for 2nd in the NW Suburban. The Elks are now 2-10 but still at the bottom of the league.
  • After giving up 50 to Matt Zager in their 1st meeting, Farmington holds him to 10 and wins the matchup of Missota Conference leaders.
  • Mounds View needed to come from 9 down at the half to win at Suburban East cellar-dwellar Park.
  • Northfield with another 3 point win over Holy Angels (read about their 1st meeting here). Surprising that Northfield didn't dominate more in these matchups.
  • Speaking of tough rematches, Champlin Park only lost by 4 to Osseo by holding Sam Dower to 14. That's different than the 1st matchup where Dower had 20 points and Osseo won by 21.
  • Woodbury has now lost 6 of 7 after a loss at Owatonna on Saturday.
  • SW Christian hammers New Life by 39 and only 11 points from Caleb Palkert. Wow. Didn't expect that one at all. I'll derive the MCAA tourney brackets below.
MCAA Tournament Brackets
#1 Lester Prairie vs #8 Trinity
#2 Maranatha vs #7 West Lutheran
#3 Southwest Christian vs #6 New Life Academy
#4 Heritage vs #5 Meadow Creek Christian
Concordia-Bloomington, Bethany and Providence will be in the friendship bracket with 2 games of round robin play there.

Opening round is on Friday, I believe the high seeds host.

If you missed any of the games I saw this week, here's the complete list.
My schedule for the week can be found on the right side in "The Czar's Schedule" section.
