Wayzata shuts out Moorhead for second time in 10 days.
Playing the same team twice within a short span is a challenge.
Yet that’s just what the No. 7AA Wayzata Trojans accomplished after beating Moorhead 3-0 Saturday night, Jan. 9 at the Moorhead Sports Center. The Trojans (9-2-1) had shut out the Spuds (5-5-2) just 10 days earlier in the consolation finals of the St. Louis Park Holiday Classic.
“We addressed that before the game,” Wayzata coach Carl Davis said. “We talked about how we were approaching the game mentally and how hard it is to beat anybody within a (short) time.
“I thought our kids really responded well.”

The junior defenseman was a very steady force for the Trojans, helping them shut out Moorhead for the second time in less than two weeks. Jones also assisted on the first Wayzata goal with just five seconds remaining in the first period.
McIntyre, a junior goaltender, stopped all 17 shots he faced to post his second shut out against Moorhead. He was at his best in the second period with Wayzata clinging to a 1-0 lead. In that frame, he made 11 saves.
The junior center finally broke his 10-game goal-scoring drought with a short-handed rush at the 12:59 mark of the second period that stretched Wayzata's lead to 2-0. A high-intensity, high-effort player, Cameranesi later assisted on Mario Lucia's empty-netter.
