NBC Sports Network is in Roseau and Warroad to do story on the fabled rivalry
The Roseau-Warroad rivalry is one of the biggest high school rivalries in the not just Minnesota but the entire nation and NBC Sports Network knows it.
Late last week the high schools of both Roseau and Warroad were notified that NBC Sports Network (formally known as Versus) out of Los Angeles would be coming into town and doing a story on the rivalry that will be aired as part of the 2012 Hockey Day in America on February 19th.
They will be in both towns doing interviews in both rinks and local businesses regarding the importance of the rivalry between both communities. They will have both Rams Head Coach Andy Lundbohm and Warriors Head Coach Steve Haataja mic’d for the game as well as player interviews before and after the game Tuesday night.
Roseau will be trying for a sweep of the season series at the Gardens in Warroad. Rams defeated the Warriors 5-2 back on January 12th at Memorial Arena. The Rams hold a 94-62-4 lead in the longtime series dating back to 1945.
Game time for Tuesday’s game is 7:30 pm at the Gardens in Warroad.
Additional details on the exact aired date and time of the story will be provided here at www.roseauhockeyonline.com when made available.
