Playing for the State Title

2 Mar

After beating the top-ranked defending state champs, previously undefeated Minneapolis North, which had won 41 straight games over two seasons, the Packers held off a strong challenge from another undefeated team, Chaska. See those highlights here.

That put the Pack in the championship game against Anoka, which had won its semifinal match with St. Paul Central. Here are the Packer highlights from the first half, which was a seesaw affair.

The Packers were up by a point with three minutes left in the first half, but Anoka went on a 7-2 run to close the half up by four.

Highlights from the second half are coming tomorrow. And on Friday we’ll be getting the old gang together for the Packers’ season finale against Rochester Century.
