Tournament season is usually in full swing in the state in January. This year, 2013, is no different. Barely is the Edina Invitational over (championship games played on Tuesday) and the Anoka Classic starts play this past Thursday.
Anoka’s tourney is unique in that it has three peewee tourneys; an 8 team Peewee A, an 8 team Peewee B1, and a 16 team Peewee B2 tourney. That is 64 peewee teams playing for three championships this weekend. One of the teams is from Fargo.
With the conculsion of Friday night’s play, all three tourney first rounds have been completed. For the peewee B2 fans, three of the eight teams in the quarterfinals are from District 6 (Minnetonka Blue, Edina Green, and Eden Prairie Red). Both Anoka teams moved forward as did West Fargo Green. Unbeaten and D10 league leader Coon Rapids and D8 league leading Hastings round out the 8 teams in the quarterfinals.
