On episode 68 of the podcast, the guys shake their Metro bias and talk about plenty of interesting teams in the Southern portion of the State. Guest Dylan Boettcher of Mankato Adapted Floor Hockey then joins the show to talk about the growth and energy surrounding the seldom discussed sport seeking to make hockey more inclusive for everyone!
Matt, Logan, & Bill start the show by breaking down the girls hockey Section playoffs that open up this week (1:47), beginning with favorites to advance to “the X,” locks in each Section, a collision course in 4AA between Hill-Murray and Gentry, and Owatonna’s chances to bust up the all-Metro monopoly in 1AA. Next on the boys side of the ice (9:32), they take on the next “Game Time deep dive,” as they spotlight Rochester-Mayo, who are coming off a big win over Lakeville North next week. The guys discuss standout players and the Spartans’ chances to knock off favorites Lakeville South in the postseason in 1AA. Also discussed is Minnetonka separating themselves as State title favorites in Class AA, and other results of interest from the past week.
In boys hoops (32:40), they talk about a shocking loss by Hopkins & reflect on the career of one of the greatest Minnesota High school hoopers in history, who recently has his number hung in the rafters of his alma mater last week.
