Author:

Today is one of the biggest days of the year for girls high school hockey as the semifinals are being played out in Class 1A and 2A at the Xcel Energy Center. We'll provide recaps of each game when they go final.

Here's the full schedule for today's games.

  • 11 a.m. – The Blake School vs. Red Wing
  • 1 p.m. – East Grand Forks vs. St. Paul United
  • 6 p.m. – Hill-Murray vs. Eden Prairie
  • 8 p.m. – Benilde-St. Margaret's vs. Lakeville North

Blake (21-7-1) advanced with a 3-2 win over Alexandria. They’ll meet Red Wing (23-6-0), who defeated New Ulm 7-2 in the semifinals. The other semifinal matchup features No. 1 seed East Grand Forks (25-2-1), who crushed Litchfield/Dassel-Cokato 8-1 in the first round, against St. Paul United, which pulled a slight upset with a 5-2 win over Proctor/Hermantown.

In Class 2A, Hill-Murray sent Burnsville to the consolation bracket with a 4-1 win. Andover pressured Eden Prairie throughout a competitive third period but the Eagles were able to hang on for a 4-2 win. Lakeville North needed triple overtime to escape the first round against Mounds View, and top-seed Benilde-St. Margaret's steamrolled Roseau 7-0.

The 1A state title game will be played at noon on Saturday, with the 2A championship closing the girls’ high school season later that night at 7 p.m.
