Things got a little chippy at the Minnesota State High School League Boys Hockey Tournament on Friday as St. Cloud Cathedral and Hermantown nearly got into a skirmish at the end of the first period of their Class A semifinal matchup.

The third-seeded Hawks had a 2-0 lead over the Crusaders as the opening period came to a close when both teams engaged in extracurricular activities at the horn. 

After a hit along the boards by SCC's Nolan Widman, Hermantown's Zach Kilen and the rest of their bench took offense leading the way to some old-time hockey that resulted in seven penalties being assessed at the end of the period.

Although the action was a bit of a throwback, so was the result for Hermantown. The Hawks claimed a 6-2 victory over the Crusaders to advance to the Class A championship game for the ninth time in the past 11 seasons and will look for their third state title in the past five seasons when they face Mahtomedi on Saturday afternoon.
