Commentary

Shakopee hasn’t lost to an ‘A’ team all season and with the previous No. 1 Warroad losing to No. 4 Rock Ridge; the Sabers are the new top dog.

Hopkins extended their win streak to ten games this past week as well as taking home the YHH lumberjack cup; the Royals are up to No. 2 currently. 

Previous No. 10 Minnetonka dropped two games this week and got knocked out of the top ten. Monticello is their replacement at No. 10. The Moose are outscoring opponents 138-40 on the year and have won 11 of their last 13 games.

Commentary

Despite a loss this week, Mahtomedi has built a good enough resume to stay put at No. 1, for now. Mahtomedi beat No. 2 Hastings twice this past week to offset that loss. 

Hermantown Blue hasn’t lost since Halloween weekend- the Hawks keep climbing up the rankings and are now in the top 3. 

This time last week Lakeville North wasn't ranked. Now the Panthers are sitting pretty at No. 6, thanks to a win over previous No. 2- OMG Black. 

Forest Lake is a team to watch down the line to spring into the rankings- they knocked down No. 1 Mahtomedi this week.

Commentary

The theme for the week is tie. Many were forced into overtime and shootouts over the weekend including White Bear's three straight wins in the Lumberjack Cup to repeat as champions. 

East Grand Forks tied Warroad a touchdown a piece last week and Brainerd and STMA fought to a shootout. 

Edina enters the top-10 and Centennial was impressive last weekend at the Lumberjack Cup with wins over Rochester and EP (and yes a tie/shootout loss to WBL).

Commentary

The story line in PWB is that there are two Minnetonka teams in the top three right now. No. 2 Minnetonka Blue is fresh off a YHH Lumberjack tournament 4-1 championship win over previous No. 3 Edina White. No. 3 Minnetonka Black is 14-1 with their only loss coming from No. 2 Minnetonka Blue. Interesting rivalry to watch in the city of Minnetonka this year. 

East Metro has now earned the No. 5 spot, after rattling off 14 straight wins. Can the Stars continue their streak?

Moorhead Black is the new entry in the rankings this week at No. 10, as the Spuds defeated Previous No. 10 Prior Lake Gold in a shootout at the Lumberjack tournament. 

OMG Black stays #1 with a nice tourney win in Duluth last weekend outscoring the competition 42-10 in five games.

Commentary

Week one of Squirt rankings is a bit challenging.  So far, there are no OMG or Edina teams. Each of those teams are trending the right way. 

The Woodbury duo of Royal and Black have arrived in style. Playing each other in the Spirit of Duluth finals 8 days ago.  Chaska and Shakopee have a chance to be really good this year.

Number one Moorhead is also off to a fast start. East Grand Forks has a few weapons this year. Watch out for the Greenwave this winter once they get started.

No. 5 Faribault is impressing us early, the Falcons are currently outscoring opponents 100-15 this season.
