Raptors head into playoffs
The Raptors played to a split last week in VFW play.
East Ridge opened the week on July 8 with a 5-4 home loss against North St. Paul. The Raptors battled back the next day, earning a 5-4 win over the visiting South St. Paul Shamrocks.
East Ridge traveled July 10 to Roseville, where the Raiders won 3-2. East Ridge closed out the week's non-tournament play with a 6-5 home win over West St. Paul.
"They've been playing hard all summer," said East Ridge coach Brian Sprout. "They do as much as they possibly can. When they play their best, they can beat anybody."
The Raptors finished the regular season on Tuesday, July 16, with a road game against Mahtomedi that was played after the Bulletin went to press.
Playoffs begin this week and continue through July 25.
