Week 13 Tuesday Night Scoreboard Club

Here's what caught my eye from the games of Tuesday 2/24/09.
  • Apple Valley moves ahead of Lakeville South in section 3AAAA with a 2 point win over the Cougars. AV now tied in the Lake with Burnsville and in the running for the 3rd seed.
  • Armstrong makes their case for the 3rd seed in section 6AAAA with another win over Minnetonka. Cole Stefan with 15 points for the Skippers after being held to 4 in the 1st meeting.
  • Speaking of section 6, Wayzata holds off Minneapolis North by 4. Kevin Thompson returns with 23 points for the Polars and that makes them a very different team. Reserve Soph Eric Robertson has been out with injury for the Trojans.
  • Breck with a rout of SPA to pull within 1/2 game of SPA for 3rd in the Tri-Metro West.
  • Cambridge-Isanti pulls within 1/2 game of Rogers in the Mississippi 8 with a win over the Royals. 2 big Section 7AAAA games coming up for the Bluejackets as they have Duluth East and St. Francis in their next 2 games.
  • Chaska beats Jefferson in OT thanks to 21 from soph Jake White. That loss clinches the Lake for Eden Prairie.
  • Columbia Heights was confident coming into their game with Spring Lake Park. Thanks to 34 from Jacob Thomas they pull the upset. The Hylanders still looking for that 2 seed in section 3AAA. A big game at Fridley on Friday to determine that. With Jordan Hughes back for Henry, beware of the Patriots in this section.
  • Delano rolls over Orono 67-38, but this game was 35-8 at the half, what happened there? I'll see Delano Saturday night against another section 6AAA rival, Holy Angels.
  • Elk River blows out Centennial 68-49, what happened there??
  • Farmington with the win at Northfield to take control of the Missota and section 1AAAA.
  • Isaiah Thomas goes nuts again for Fridley as he hangs 50 on St. Louis Park on 16-17 shooting. Soph PG Aaron Ziman with 24 for St. Louis Park.
  • Sibley officially clinches the Classic Suburban with a win over Mahtomedi. That forces a 3 way tie for 3rd with Mahtomedi, Richfield and St. Thomas Academy. These 3 teams still have round-robin games with each other before the season ends.
  • Sibley East gets 25 from Marshall Bjorklund but loses to Norwood-Young America in the Minnesota River. The Wolverines still lead the league by 2 games over Holy Family.
  • Arlington comes from 16 down at the half to beat Central by 8. Central was outscored 39-15 in the 2nd half.
  • Off a nice night at St. Michael-Albertville, Waconia's Shelby Moats goes for 28 against Mound-Westonka in a blowout win. Waconia stays 1 game up in the loss column on Delano in the Wright County.

  1. Hey Kevin,

    We are actually looking for the # 1 seed. If we beat Fridley, we deserve the # 1 seed based on SOS!! Look at our schedule and look at Fridley's and Spring Lake Park. Head to Head will be a wash.

    Cmon give us a break.. Smile.

  2. Willie, you're looking at finishing 1 game behind Spring Lake Park in league play, they'll have a better overall record and they do have wins over Farmington (#1 seed in 1AAAA), Mounds View (Suburban East champ) and a solid STMA team. They have a loss to Tartan as well and Elk River is a level above Highland Park.

    While you do have that great win over St. Bernard's, the only other non-conf win is over Highland Park. The Minnetonka win isn't as impressive with their down season. The loss to Rosemount looms large.

    Sorry, but you'll need more help than Cooper over SLP to pick up that 1 seed. :) But I'll grant you that you're not out of the running yet.

  3. I should say the Minnetonka game isn't as impressive (you got beat by 6 rather than winning it as I wrote about, and I saw that game too, this blizzard is driving me nuts.)

  4. The past few games have been rough because Marshall has come up with the same shoulder injury he had a few years back. It is looking like he might need surgery.
