Woodbury nets Park for sectional opener
The Woodbury boys hockey team claimed a No. 3 seed for this upcoming week's Section 3AA Tournament and will host a familiar foe in the playoff opener on Thursday: Park.
After losing out on hopes of a No. 2 seed with a loss to Cretin-Derham Hall last Thursday -- the Raiders claimed the second seed with Eagan taking No. 1 -- the Royals were in danger of falling as far as No. 4, which went to Apple Valley, before today's coaches' vote put WHS in the third slot.
Woodbury and Park have played twice this season, with each team claiming one victory on the other's home ice.
Puck drop for the Royals/Wolfpack contest is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. The winner will play either Cretin or No. 7 Eastview at the State Fairgrounds Coliseum at 8 p.m., Feb. 27. The 3AA final is slated to be played at 7:30 p.m., March 4.
