Duluth East boys' hockey coach Mike Randolph
• DULUTH EAST 5, CLOQUET/ESKO/CARLTON 2: Greyhounds coach Mike Randolph earned his 500th career victory by beating the Lumberjacks on Thursday. A quick goal by Hogan Davidson put Class 2A, No. 6 Duluth East on top of 2A, No. 16 Cloquet/Esko/Carlton. Cloquet's Drew Dincau tied the game, but the Greyhounds took control in the third. A late goal from Ryan Lundgren sealed the victory. Davidson finished with a hat trick.
• MINNETONKA 4, MAPLE GROVE 3 (OT): The host Crimson knew knocking off Class 2A, No. 3 Minnetonka would be a tall order. Maple Grove's first shot of the game found the net, but Minnetonka's Tommy Vannelli scored a few minutes later to even the score, and Max Coatta's power-play goal in the second period gave the Skippers the lead. The Crimson retook the lead thanks to two late-third period goals. Maple Grove came up with a penalty kill late in the game, but the Skippers slipped in a game-tying goal with 24 seconds left to force overtime, where Justin Bader quickly stifled the upset bid. The Crimson gave undefeated Minnetonka its biggest scare of the season. Maple Grove fell to 2-4.
• LAKEVILLE NORTH 4, EDEN PRAIRIE 3: Lakeville North jumped out to an early lead over Class 2A, No. 9 Eden Prairie behind goals from Jack Poehling and Tristen Hazlett, but a late power-play goal from Eden Prairie's Andrew Knudsen kept things interesting. The Panthers held on for the victory, though, their fourth of the year. Eden Prairie fell to 3-2.
• TARTAN 7, SIMLEY 0: It took Tartan's Jake Jackson only 26 seconds to double his goal total this season. Jackson found the net early and often against Simley, scoring four times to push his team to 6-0 on the season. The Titans have shut out four of their first six opponents.
