Staff Rankings (Girls): Jan. 23

By YHH Staff , 01/23/23, 9:15PM CST


Top-10's for all all girls' hockey levels from GHS to 10U.

Class AA

Chloe Boreen leads No. 1-2A Hill-Murray with 29 goals this season.

1. Hill-Murray (16-2-1) 

Hill-Murray takes over the top spot this week after previous No. 1-2A Gentry Academy fell to No. 2-1A Proctor/Hermantown, and second-ranked Edina was edged 1-0 by unranked Blake.

The Pioneers topped No. 6-2A Holy Family 2-0 on Thursday and then shut out Wayzata 7-0 on Saturday. The wins give them an added exclamation point on their move to the top of the rankings. 

2. Minnetonka (18-2) 

Back with a full roster, the Skippers eked out a 1-0 win over Eden Prairie, then handed Champlin Park/Coon Rapids a 5-1 loss for their eighth win in their last nine games. 

Maple Grove and North Wright County are on the docket for this week, with Blaine and Wayzata on the horizon for the season's final stretch. 22-2 is a very real expectation for the Skippers. 

3. Andover (16-3) 

The Huskies have won three straight games since suffering its third loss of the regular season last week against Hill-Murray.

Andover outscored Blaine, Champlin Park/Coon Rapids, and Section 7-2A rival Grand Rapids-Greenway 16-2 over its three contests last week, and will face Centennial/Spring Lake Park and No. 1-1A Warroad this Tuesday and Thursday, respectively. 

4. Edina (14-4-1) 

After knocking off then-No. 1-2A Minnetonka 3-0, the Hornets fell to unranked Blake 1-0 while being unable to score on seven power plays, according to the Mn Girls' Hockey Hub scoresheet. 

The last five games the Hornets have been involved in, four wins and a loss, have ended with at least one team being shut out. 

5. Gentry Academy (17-2) 

With two games to go before its apparent end-of-regular-season schedule, Gentry Academy fell to Proctor/Hermantown 3-2 in overtime on the road at Hermantown Arena. 

While the Stars' tour of northern Minnesota concluded with consecutive wins over Crookston and East Grand Forks, the loss to the Mirage knocks the Stars out of the top spot this week. 

6. Holy Family (15-5-1) 

An 8-0 win over Hutchinson was followed by a 2-0 defeat at the hands of new No. 1-2A Hill-Murray, leaving the Fire with a 1-1 record for the week. The loss to the Pioneers halted the Fire's four-game winning streak. 

Up next are dates with Mound Westonka/Southwest Christian and Delano/Rockford, two teams that the Fire has already defeated. 

7. Maple Grove (15-4) 

After losing back-to-back games against No. 3-2A Andover and No. 6-2A Holy Family last week, the Crimson topped Northwest Suburban Conference foes Centennial/Spring Lake Park and Osseo/Park Center 5-1 and 6-0, respectively. 

Back from her stint with Team USA's Under-18 squad, Dani Strom stopped 22 shots in the win over the Cougars.

8. Moorhead (14-6) 

The Spuds had their six-game winning streak snapped in a 3-2 loss to No. 1-1A Warroad, although one onlooker from the game said that Moorhead could be the most formidable team the Warriors have faced so far, evidenced not only by the narrow margin of victory, but by the way the Spuds play. 

Fargo Davies and Andover are on tap this week, with eh Spuds hosting both opponents in Moorhead. 

9. Stillwater (16-4) 

The Ponies extended their winning streak to five games with wins over Woodbury and Roseville/Mahtomedi. Two more Suburban East Conference opponents are up next week for the Ponies, who will travel to both East Ridge and White Bear Lake. 

After Tuesday and Saturday's games, the Ponies will go on one of the most demanding schedule stretches in the state. The Ponies will face No. 5-2A Gentry Academy, No. 4-2A Edina, and No. 3-2A Andover in consecutive games to close out the regular season. 

10. Blake (10-10) 

A cosmic mix of wins and losses push Blake into the top 10 this week, as the Bears downed then No. 2-2A Edina 1-0 behind a 36-save shutout of Janie McGawn. The win over the Hornets makes the third victory over a top-10 team this season for the Bears. 

For now, the Benilde-St. Margaret's loss to unranked Northfield, coupled with the Bears' win over one of the state's top teams, makes Blake No. 10-2A. 

Lily Timmons, Stillwater

Class A

Reese Heitzman scored the game-winning goal for Proctor/Hermantown in the Mirage's overtime win over Gentry Academy.

1. Warroad (19-2-1) 

The Warriors picked up wins over Thief River Falls and another top-10 Class 2A team in Moorhead last week. Business as usual for the Warriors, who will host Andover on Friday in their lone game of the week. 

Rylee Bartz Goal Counter: 41 (Trademark: Youth Hockey Hub, 2023).

2. Proctor/Hermantown (13-5-2) 

The Mirage knocked off former No. 1-2A Gentry Academy last week, handing the Stars a 3-2 loss in overtime at Hermantown Arena. The win was followed by a 3-0 loss to No. 4-2A Edina on the road, but the win over the Stars move Proctor/Hermantown to the (almost) front of the Class 1A line. 

3. Simley (17-4-1) 

Since the 3-2 loss in overtime to newly minted No. 1-2 Hill-Murray Pioneers, the Spartans have rattled off three wins, including a 2-0 shutout of top-10 Class 1A Mound Westonka/Southwest Christian. 

Moose Lake Area, who could be a contender in Section 7-1A, and Section 4-1A rival South St. Paul are on the Spartans’ schedule for this week. 

4. Orono (13-3-4) 

The Spartans made the most out of their lone game of the week, beating No. 10-2A Blake 4-3 after the Bears pulled off the upset of Edina. Kali Schmidt scored two goals and added an assist in the Spartans’ win over the Bears. 

Minneapolis and New Prague are the next two games on the Spartans’ schedule. 

5. Holy Angels (16-3-1) 

A trio of wins over Visitation, Armstrong/Cooper, and Chaska/Chanhassen were won by a combined score of 25-1. 

The schedule doesn’t offer much challenge this week, as the Stars slow through the Metro West Conference with games against Waconia and New Prague. The teams are a combined 9-27-1 on the season.
