Boys Hockey | Section 1 schedules set

(THIS IS NOW UPDATED TO INCLUDE TIME/DATE OF 1AA TITLE GAME)

Posted by: Feldman

The pairings for the Section 1A and 1AA boys hockey tournaments were announced on Sunday, and all four Rochester schools are staying home for, well, however much time remains in their seasons (unless they get to state, of course). We're certain of one thing: One Rochester team will see its season come to a close in Thursday's quarterfinals and at least one will advance to Section Semifinal Saturday at the Rec Center.

That's because Mayo and John Marshall will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in a Section 1AA quarterfinal at Graham Arena I. It will be their fourth meeting this season, and the 104th meeting in the history of the rivalry. Mayo is 2-1-0 against JM this season.

Mayo is the No. 4 seed, JM No. 5. Century earned the No. 3 seed and will play host to No. 6 Owatonna at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Rec Center. Century went 1-0-1 against the Huskies this season.

I'll have a feature story in Wednesday's Sports section on JM goalie Jacob Garvey. He has been red-hot for the past month. He hasn't lost in nearly a month — since a 4-1 setback to Mayo on Jan. 21. Since that loss, he's gone 5-0-1 in six starts and has put up some other eye-popping numbers you can read about on Wednesday.

Since Mayo and JM are taking over Graham I, Rochester Lourdes will play its quarterfinal game at Graham IV at 7 p.m. Thursday. The top-seeded Eagles will play host to the winner of Tuesday's first-round game between No. 8-seeded Faribault and No. 9 La Crescent.

If the seeds hold up, we'll have a Rochester team in three of the four semifinal games being played at the Rec Center on Saturday. The JM/Mayo winner will play in the 2 p.m. Section 1AA semifinal, while Century — if it tops Owatonna — will play in the day's final game, at 8 p.m.

Lourdes will play in the 11:30 a.m. Section 1A semifinal game against either Red Wing or Mankato West. The 5:30 p.m. Section 1A semifinal game could feature No. 2 seed New Prague vs. No. 3 seed Northfield.

Here are the complete Section 1A and 1AA schedules.
