An interesting week in 12A despite there not being any top-10 losses. Grand Rapids-GW came to town and saw three teams. Unranked, but testy Chaska Chan and Hopkins-Park on Saturday. Then a matchup with top-ranked Minnetonka. The Lightning struck on Saturday in two competitive games (3-1 over CC and 5-3 over HP). Their was less electricity on Sunday for GRG, but the result was definitely there, they skated to a 1-1 tie with top-ranked Minnetonka.
Speaking of interesting ties. Unranked Farmington skates to a 1-1 tie with #2 Woobury, the Tigers are an impressive 27-4-7.
