The upsets continued in the second game as unseeded Northfield skated by #3 Mahtomedi 3-1. It was a victory for Northfield in their first state tournament game in program history.

The Raiders win means an unseeded team will advance to the state championship. They'll meet up with Monticello/Annandale/Maple Lake in the semifinals.
