Dec. 2: BSM wins penalty filled showdown with Edina, Cathedral notches big victory over EGF

Warroad 7, Mahtomedi 6 (OT)

STILLWATER - Ryan Lund scored 3:38 into overtime to lift Warroad past Mahtomedi 7-6 at the St. Croix Valley Recreation Center on Saturday in a rematch of last season's state Class 1A championship game.

Mahtomedi won its first state title last March when it beat Warroad 6-5 in double overtime at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul in one of the most exciting state championship games in recent history.

The rematch was a thriller, too, with multiple lead changes and a hat trick for a player from each team, just like in the state title game.

This time it was senior forward Patrick Egan scoring four goals for No. 4-1A Mahtomedi (1-3-0) and Lund, a senior defenseman, scoring four for No. 2-1A Warroad (3-1-0). 

Lund scored the winner when he one-timed a pass from Murray Marvin-Cordes past Mahtomedi goaltender West Strub.

Benilde-St. Margaret's 3, Edina 1

EDINA - Caleb Koskie's second-period goal proved to be the game-winner as Benilde-St. Margaret's beat Edina 3-1 in a penalty-filled matchup with section seeding implications at Braemar Arena.

Koskie's goal was the only one that didn't come on a power play, as the teams combined for 21 infractions for 58 minutes.

Mason Stenger scored a power-play goal for No. 12-2A Benilde-St. Margaret's (2-0-0) in the first and Benjamin Norris' power-play goal midway through the second put the Red Knights ahead 3-0.

Mason West scored a power-play goal for Edina (3-1-0) with 21 seconds left.

The game marked the lone regular-season meeting between the teams and will be part of the consideration when Section 6AA coaches determine the playoff pecking order at the end of the season.
