Class 2A

Eden Prairie (15-4-2) maintained its No. 1 ranking and received 10 first place votes in the Class 2A coach's poll following a 4-3 win over No. 2 Edina.

The Eagles improved their unbeaten streak to nine games after beating Edina and Blaine (5-1). Senior Jarod Blackowiak scored the game-winning goal midway through the third period to defeat the Hornets. No. 14 Minnetonka is the only top-twenty ranked opponent left on the Eagle's schedule.

Stillwater (17-3) dropped from third to fifth following a 3-2 loss to Lakeville North on Jan. 31. The Ponies rebounded with a 9-0 win over Mounds View in which six Stillwater skaters recorded multi-point games.

Elk River (18-4) and Holy Family (18-3-1) climbed to third and fourth, respectively. The Elks beat No. 12 Duluth East and Spring Lake Park by a combined score of 13-2. Holy Family extended its winning streak to 11 games with wins over No. 19 Lakeville South and No. 3-1A Delano.

Hill-Murray (14-3-4) continued its decline, dropping from sixth to ninth in the Class 2A state rankings. The Pioneers tied Wayzata and lost to Blaine - both of which are currently unranked. No. 6 Lakeville North (16-4-2) and No. 7 Centennial (16-4-1) each moved up one slot as a result.

Prior Lake (13-8) leap-frogged Burnsville, White Bear Lake, St. Michael-Albertville and Lakeville South on its way from No. 19 to No. 15 in the Class 2A state rankings. The Lakers are 5-1 in their last four games, with wins over No. 19 Lakeville South and No. 16 Burnsville.

The Class 1A top ten remained unchanged with Hermantown receiving 10 first place votes in the state coach's poll.

The Hawks (19-1-1) gave up two goals for the first time since Jan. 20 in a 9-2 win over seventh-ranked Mahtomedi. Senior Ryan Sandelin leads Hermantown with 25 goals and 28 assists.

No. 2 Breck (16-3-2) is 10-0-1 in its last 11 games and hasn't allowed more than three goals in a game since Dec. 20. Goalie Linden Olness is 12-2-2 with a .905 save percentage and three shutouts.

St. Paul Academy's Matt Dahlseide is seventh in Class 2A in points with 63 (28 goals, 35 assists). The Spartans (19-2) remained ranked No. 4 following wins over Mankato West and Providence Academy.

Minnehaha Academy's drop from No. 12 to No. 17 shook up the lower half of the Class 1A top twenty. The Redhawks (14-7) are 2-6 in their last eight games and were surpassed by Orono, Greenway, Northfield, Blake and previously unranked Rochester Lourdes.

Blake (11-10) jumped from No. 18 to No. 15 after beating Minnehaha Academy 4-3. Sophomore Blake Weyerhaeuser scored the game-winning goal in overtime.
