  • 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.
