It’s Semifinal Saturday for Section 7AA and 7A high school boys hockey teams, with all four games played in the same barn.
7AA teams will tee it up first, as top-seeded Andover faces Elk-River at noon and defending champion Duluth East looks for a third straight win of the season against traditional rival Cloquet at 2 p.m.
Then it’s showtime for the 7A teams, as top-seeded and No. 1-ranked Hermantown plays heavy underdog Virginia at 6 p.m. and Greenway looks to fend off upset-minded Duluth Denfeld at 8 p.m.
The 7A final will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, followed by the 7AA championship at 7 p.m. Thursday.
All 7AA and 7A semifinal and championship games will be played at Amsoil Arena, and all but today’s Andover-Elk River game will be broadcast live by 92.1 FM The Fan (Brian Prudhomme play-by-play, Topher Davis color). Games will also be livestreamed live, here.
