AHA Stars are State Champs!

Happy Birthday to Troglotyke #6

From the AP report:

Jay Barriball had two goals and an assist to lead Holy Angels to its second Class 2A state boys' hockey title with a 6-4 victory over Moorhead on Saturday night.

The Stars (26-2-2) stunned Moorhead's shaky goaltenders with two quick goals in the first period and four on their first 10 shots, then held on as the Spuds rallied late.

Down 5-3, Moorhead appeared to close the gap with 3:42 to go when Cory Johnson knocked in a rebound, but officials ruled that Johnson played it with a high stick and waved off the goal. Moorhead coach Dave Morinville was visibly upset, and the Spuds managed one more goal down the stretch, but still fell to 0-6 in championship games.

Notes: Duluth East defeated Tartan 5-3 in the third-place game. ... White Bear Lake defeated Bloomington Jefferson 5-4 in overtime for the consolation championship. ... Attendance for the four-day tournament was a record 123,853.

I didn't go to tonight's games for domestic peacekeeping reasons (it's not really fair to leave the Troglodytrix home alone with 6 Troglotykes for three nights in a row--I did take 4 of them to Mariucci for the Jefferson vs. White Bear game). It isn't quite the same atmosphere-wise, and on TV you get to listen to Lou Nanne make the same points a dozen times per period, some of which are even insightful. But nevermind... Oh, yeah, Victory!

Finally, we can use the best retort to the "Public Schools" chant by simply pointing to the scoreboard.
