Section 1AA Semifinal | Lakeville North 6, Century 1, FINAL
Posted by: Feldman
Yawwwwnnnnnnn. We're through three games at the Rec Center now. The Section 1A final is set -- Lourdes vs. Northfield at 7 p.m. Wednesday with a trip to state on the line.
Now, Century has a shot to keep another all-Lakeville final from happening in 1AA. North and Century are on the ice, with 4 minutes left in warmups. We're about 15-20 minutes from faceoff.
NORTH 1, CENTURY 0: Blake Winiecki 25 (Charlie Hayes 16) 14:19 (pp). Winiecki scores on the doorstep on a 5-on-3.
NORTH 2, CENTURY 0: 15:55 (pp). Evan Peterson 26 (Erik Rutt 12) 15:55 (pp). Peterson taps one home from right in front of Wennberg to make it 2-0.
Notes: North's Connor Hyden called for boarding, a 5-minute major, just 1:04 into the game. ... North kills the 5-minute major, allows Century 1 official shot on goal on the power play. ... Century took a 5-minute major for boarding, then a minor penalty, giving North nearly 2 minutes of 5 on 3. North got both of its goals on those power plays.
Shots on goal: North 8, Century 3.
NORTH 3, CENTURY 0: Connor Hyden (Tristen Hazlett) 1:36. On a 2-on-1 rush, Hazlett sends a pass across the slot to Hyden who tips it in.
NORTH 4, CENTURY 0: Alex Wood (Evan Peterson) 16:16 (pp). Peterson picks up the puck in the right circle and fires it to Wood on top of the crease. Wood deflects it over Wennberg for North's third power play goal of the game.
Notes: There was a five-minute delay with 12:28 to go in the period, as the arena crew had to fix a problem with the boards in the Lakeville North end.
Shots on goal: North 21, Century 15.
NORTH 5, CENTURY 0: Peterson (Winiecki) 9:40. As a penalty to Peterson expired, he came out of the box and went hard to the net. Winiecki fed him near the crease and Winiecki lifted a backhand into the top corner, glove side.
NORTH 5, CENTURY 1: Isaac St. Marie (Brandon Kautz) 15:11 (4x4). While skating 4 on 4, Century wins a faceoff and Kautz sends it to St. Marie, who beats Hart to spoil the shutout.
NORTH 6, CENTURY 1: Jack Diercks (Brendan Cole) 15:34 (4x4). Diercks answers Century's only goal just 23 seconds later to cap the scoring.
Final shots on goal: North 34, Century 23.
