Midwest Regional: Early Rounds Re-Cap

By Tony Scott, 12/29/12, 2:30PM CST


Woodbury’s Luke Landin fires a rocket from the point versus Tartan.

12-29-12 (morning) An exciting first two days of action at the Midwest Regional Tournament at Bloomington Ice Garden.  Both B tournaments have their finalists: Hastings/Chaska Chanhassen in the PeeWees and Stillwater/Champlin Park in the Bantams. YHH was at BIG for a good part of yesterday’s action.

12-29-12 (afternoon) Two champions crowned in the B divisions.  Chaska Chan beat Hastings in PWB (3-0) and Stillwater beat Champlin Park (7-1) to win the Bantam B.

Here is a recap of all the games:

PeeWee B

Jefferson > MAML (5-2), Hastings > Tartan (2-0), Chaska/Chanhassen > Irondale/St. Francis (2-1), and Prior Lake > STMA (2-1). Semifinals: Hastings > Jefferson (3-0) and Chaska/Chan > Prior Lake (2-1).

Commentary: YHH identified the winner of the PL/CC as the future champ…this won’t be the last time PL and CC play this year.  For now CC has the bragging rights.

PeeWee A/AA

MAML > Bloomington Kennedy (9-1), Tartan > Woodbury (5-2), Bloomington Jefferson > Eastview (4-3, OT/SO), Wayzata “A” > Rosemount (7-1)

Commentary: Tartan looked great – watch out for #19 Luke Mountain for the Titans.  The Titans should be favored to win over MAML. Jefferson scores 2 late goals to tie it and wins in shootout. Wayzata “A” looks sharp and will give Jefferson a great game today in the second semifinal.

Bantam B

Stillwater > Chaska/Chan (4-3), Wayzata > Andover (11-1), Champlin Park > Hudson (3-2), and Bloomington Jefferson > Highland Park (6-2). Semifinals: Stillwater > Wayzata (2-1, OT) and Champlin Park > Jefferson (4-1).

Commentary: Stillwater with an epic OT win with 6 seconds left on a beautiful slap shot by Matthew Stanton. Two disputed goals late in third period for both teams added to the drama. Champlin Park cruised into the finals with a nice win over Jefferson.

Bantam AA/A

Jefferson > MAML (7-0), Woodbury > Chaska/Chan (4-2), Kennedy > Spring Lake Park (7-4), and Tartan > Sibley (3-2).

Commentary: Woodbury looks to challenge Jefferson today.  Jefferson will be missing one of it’s best players Tyler Scott.  Kennedy is playing great hockey.  The winner of the Kennedy/Tartan semifinal will challenge the big boys.
