In what was a defensive struggle between the Hermantown Hawks and St. Cloud Apollo Eagles, Hermantown found the edge to win 2-0 and punch their ticket to their sixth straight boys hockey Class A Championship game.
After clenching their respective section titles, Hermantown and Duluth East make another trip to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Both teams are continuing a streak of appearances at the tournament, but their path to the big dance and the road ahead are different for each team.
The Minnesota boys high school hockey tournament begins this week and two Northland teams will be looking to bring home championships. Hermantown will enter the tournament as the Class 1A top seed, while Duluth East was not seeded in the 2A tournament.
Top section seeded Hermantown and number 2 seed Duluth Marshall clashed on the ice at Amsoil Arena for the 2015 Section 7A title and trip to the MSHSL Boys Hockey Tournament at the Xcel Energy Center next week.
Amsoil Arena was Hockey Central in the Northland as 8 teams gathered to see who would be playing in the Section 7A and Section 7AA Championships next week. Action kicked off at noon on Saturday, with the 7AA teams playing the afternoon games; and 7A action followed during the evening session.
