Wildcats upset Minneapolis in first round, but run into Breck in second
Chisago Lakes 3, Minneapolis 0
The fifth-seeded Wildcat girls’ hockey team picked a good time “to play one of the best games we’ve played all season long,” said Wildcat head coach Dave Burgen – their first section playoff game.  The Wildcats scored early in the first period and added a couple of power play goals in the third period to beat the fourth-seeded Minneapolis Novas 3-0 in the Section 5A quarterfinals.  Wildcat goalie Megan Lerfald stopped all 26 shots she faced to earn the shutout win.  It was the first playoff win for the Wildcats since they won the consolation championship at the state tournament in 2012.  The game was played at Parade Ice Garden in Minneapolis on Wednesday, February 7.  The win sent the Wildcats to the section semifinal game against top-seeded Breck this past Tuesday, February 13, also at Parade Ice Garden.

Vikings find a way to beat Wildcats in a much tighter affair
Sudden-death overtime goals are generally exhilarating for the winners and crushing for the losers, especially in a big game or in a rivalry game.  But the end to the Vikings’ 2-1 overtime boys’ hockey win over the Wildcats at Chisago Lakes Arena last Saturday, February 3 was almost anticlimactic.  55 seconds into overtime, after a Viking shot from the right point and some chaos in front of the net, the referee blew the whistle when he couldn’t see the puck.  A Wildcat player had his glove covering the puck deep in the crease.  “The referee said he was going to call a penalty shot,” said Viking head coach Matt Cottingham, “but he noticed both the glove and the puck were over the goal line.  So, he correctly called it a goal and the game was over.”  Brady Meyer, who was the last Viking player to touch the puck after getting his stick on the rebound, was awarded the goal.  Zach Larson, who took the shot from the point that eventually led to the goal, received an assist.

North Branch hangs up seven amid turmoil for Chisago Lakes
North Branch 7, Chisago Lakes 3
The anticipation was building for the season’s first boys’ hockey matchup between the Vikings and Wildcats last Saturday afternoon.  But the Wildcats were thrown for a loop when head coach Paul Gibson resigned on Friday.  The Vikings, experiencing the best season in team history, came on strong and scored five goals in the first period before the Wildcats knew what hit them.  The Wildcats recovered and played a lot better over the next two periods, but the five-goal deficit was a hill too high to climb.  The Vikings won 7-3 to raise their record to 11-3-0 on the season.  The loss dropped the Wildcats to 4-10-2.
