Hockey: Elks denied state by Duluth East, once again, despite early 3-0 lead; they fall 5-4 in 2OT http://erstarnews.com/2015/02/26/hockey-elks-denied-state-by-duluth-east-once-again-despite-early-3-0-as-they-fall-5-4-in-double-ot/ http://erstarnews.com/2015/02/26/hockey-elks-denied-state-by-duluth-east-once-again-despite-early-3-0-as-they-fall-5-4-in-double-ot/#comments Fri, 27 Feb 2015 03:43:00 +0000 http://erstarnews.com/?p=786363 Duluth East celebrates the game-winner in the second overtime while Elk River players Ben Meyers (goalie), xxxx slump in despair.

Not even with a quick three-goal lead could Elk River finally win a big game at Amsoil Arena, the place where their dreams have gone to die for the past seven years.

Duluth East, a heavy underdog to the Elks this year, won its seventh consecutive Section 7AA championship on Garrett Worth’s goal 1:49 into the second overtime on Thursday evening. The Elks have lost East in six of those years, the last two in overtime in the finals after giving up a late tying goal in the third period.

This year, the Elks skated into the finals with a 22-4-1 record to East’s 13-10-4, and had outscored them 169 to 73 heading into the section finals, and had won their semifinal 9-1 while the Greyhounds squeaked by 3-2.

And the Elks stormed to a 3-0 lead in the first period. But the game turned on a disastrous penalty in the second period that gave Duluth East five-minute power play which they converted into two goals.

Jake Jaremko scored just 48 seconds after face-off, swooping in from the right side, with assists by Reggie Lutz and Matt Kierstad. The Elks would get three of nine shots past Gunnar Howg in the period with Jax Murray cranking up from 10 feet away at 7:23 (Benton Maas and Jones assistant) and Jaremko, again, this time with big right-handed swing from the side at 15:52, Lutz and Kierstad assisting.

The Elks killed a penalty on Jones early in the second period but when the senior forward returned to the ice he hit Duluth East’s Shay Donovan into the boards and was called for a 10-minute misconduct for checking from behind.

The five-minute power play got Duluth East back in the game as Ash Altman scored 3:48 into it and Nick Altman scored with :02 left, each after a rush to the net. Greyhound momentum continued as Nick Funk had a clear shot from the front of the net and buried it at 13:08.

The Elks, back on their heels, needed a big play bad, and got one from Lutz, with a powerful wrist shot from just outside the circle that connected at 14:42, Jaremko and Alex Schwab assisting, to salvage a 4-3 lead after the gruesome second period.

The Greyhounds pulled even with 4:16 left in the game on a top-shelf shot by Ryan Peterson. The third period and first overtime saw both goalies, Ben Meyers and Howg, make some tough saves.

Worth settled the issue in the second extra session.

Duluth East, which gets the home-ice advantage every year in the playoffs, because of a very profitable gate and TV deal for the section, takes a 14-10-4 record into state.

Hockey: It’s Elk River vs. Duluth East for a state trip again; this time Elks are favorite http://erstarnews.com/2015/02/25/hockey-its-elk-river-vs-duluth-east-for-a-state-trip-again-this-time-elks-are-favorite/ http://erstarnews.com/2015/02/25/hockey-its-elk-river-vs-duluth-east-for-a-state-trip-again-this-time-elks-are-favorite/#comments Wed, 25 Feb 2015 23:58:28 +0000 http://erstarnews.com/?p=786313 Elk River head coach Gordie Roberts (middle) with assistants Bruce Johnson (left) and Ben Gustafson (right), watch the action of an Elks game.

By all measures, Elk River has its best chance for a state trip in boys hockey since their last appearance, in 2005, when they take on Duluth East in the Section 7AA championship game Thursday evening in Duluth.

 

Duluth East has won the section six straight seasons, ousting the Elks in five of those six years, including 3-2 in overtime in last years’ final after the Elks beat them in the regular season.

 

This year, the power seems to have shifted south as the Elks are ranked No. 6 with a 22-4-1 record, with Duluth East 13-10-4 and ranked No. 20. And the Elks have outscored they Greyhounds 169 to 73.

 

But then there’s the little matter of Duluth East’s dynasty, and the fact that they came to Elk River on Jan. 31 and tie the Elks 1-1. The Elks were down until two minutes remained.

Reggie Lutz has 39 goals for the Elks.

Reggie Lutz has 39 goals for the Elks.

“Definitely, they are still a good team,” said Elk forward Reggie Lutz. “They have really good coaching, they are very disciplined on the forecheck and it’s really hard to get an odd-man rush against them. They are a big, physical team to play against. Their goalie is very good. We stayed and watched them play Grand Rapids and he made some unreal saves. He’s the reason they won that game.”

 
While the Elks were crushing overmatched St. Francis 10-1 and Cloquet-Esko-Carlton 9-1 in the section so far, Duluth East has beaten Andover 3-0 and Grand Rapids 3-2, with Gunnar Howg stopping 56 of 56 shots and Nick Altman scoring four of the six goals.

 
“We know they are always going to give us a good game,” said Jake Jaremko, the Elks’ Mr. Hockey finalist. “Their goalie, definitely, is very good, and No. 19, Nick Atlman, has gotten some big goals for them.”

 
Elk coach Gordie Roberts said the Elks know Duluth East is always well-prepared for big games under their longtime coach, Mike Randolph, who’s taken 15 teams to state tournaments.

 

The Elks leader is Jake Jaremko, a Mr. Hockey finalist.

“They will always be good in their system,” he said. “They don’t have the offense they’ve had in the past, and their top two defensemen graduated. Their goalie had a great game against Grand Rapids. There will be no surprises. We both know each other’s strengths and weaknesses.”

 

The Greyhounds were 5-8-1 after losing to Grand Rapids 5-1, No. 5 ranked Eden Prairie 4-2 and No. 1 Lakeville North 2-1 over six days in early January, but the close loss to Lakeville North, with its three Mr. Hockey finalists, indicated the Greyhounds were turning the corner.

 
They are 6-2-3 since then, including the 1-1 tie at Elk River Arena, giving them a 13-10-4 overall mark. On the other hand, they also tied Cloquet-Esko-Carlton 1-1 on Feb. 2, the same team the Elks blasted on Saturday.

 
“They’ve had their ups and downs,” Lutz observed.

 
Nick Altman leads them with 13 goals and 13 assists for the season. Next are Ash Altman with nine goals and Luke Dow with eight. But if they’re not scoring much, they aren’t give up much, either.

 
The Elks high-powered offense, led by Lutz with 39 goals, and Jaremko with 23 goals and 53 assists, followed by Jax Murray with 16 goals, Peter Jones 14 and Jensen Zerban 13, hopes to put some dents in that daunting East defense.

 
Jaremko, who has signed with Minnesota State-Mankato and had plenty of offers to hone his game in Juniors this year, chose to finish his prep career as an Elk, and the rematch with Duluth East was definitely on his mind.

 
“This was the most important reason that I stayed, to play in a state tournament,” said Jaremko. “And we can do that if we win Thursday. This a chance to get some revenge. That was a tough loss last year.”

 
Lutz echoed, “I’m glad we get to play Duluth East again. We really want to beat them after last year.”

 
Roberts said it’s encouraging to have a team led by “one of the best players in the state” in Jake Jaremko, while the goalie position, shaky the start of the season, is “a lot more solid now” with sophomore Ben Meyers having 24 varsity games under his belt.

 
“I love the way we have played the lost couple games, and if we can play anything like that we have a good chance,” said Roberts. “We are definitely due to beat them in a big game.

The Elk River Elks withstood a furious press by Buffalo in the last six minutes to fend off the Bison 73-70 on the Section 8AAAA opener on Tuesday evening at home.

“It was a great game, a real hard-fought game, between two teams very similar,” said Elk coach Randy Klasen. “I’m just happy we survived and advanced and get to play another game, against St. Michael.”

Elk guard Matt Keller scored 26 points, including a 3-point play after a steal, and two free shots shortly after, that helped the Elks stay in front after Buffalo whittled an 11-point lead down to three.

“You have to give Buffalo a lot of credit,” said Keller, who made four 3-pointers and 8-for-9 free throw. “They pressured us so hard that we weren’t able to see the floor very well, but obviously we overcame that in the end.”

Jack Burger, Elk freshman guard, added 19 points, including a key breakaway layup late in the game, on which he suffered a knee injury. He had the right knee iced being fouled on the play and landing poorly. Wyatt Morrell subbed for him and made the free throw to complete a 3-point play.

“That’s the most fun I’ve ever had in a game,” said Burger, who had his best varsity game by far, shooting 6-for-8 on field goals, 6-for-7 at the line, and grabbing five rebounds. “I just kept using my momentum.”

The 6-foot-3 forward was in pain, though.

“My knee is hurting really bad,” said Burger. “I landed in awkward position and it twisted and gave out.”

Keller paid tribute to the freshman who helped keep the season alive.

“We give a game ball and Jack deserved it 100 percent. Just a freshman, and he stepped up so big for us.”

Jared High scored 26 points for Buffalo. Zach Dahl added 14 and Cory Thielman 13.

The Elks (13-14) now face No. 1 seed St. Michael-Albertville (22-5) in the semifinals on Saturday, 2 p.m., at St. Cloud State. STMA beat the Elks 53-39 on Jan. 31.

Buffalo, in the last few minutes, kept double- and triple-teaming, sometimes quadruple-teaming, the ball hander on the inbounds plays, so aggressively and effectively that the Elks couldn’t get past the free throw line most of the time. There would either be a turnover or a foul, and the Elks made 1-of-2 free shots four straight times as the Bison kept closing the gap.

Buffalo hit a couple 3-pointers during their late rally but made only 3-for-20 in the game, which probably was the difference as the Elks made nine 3-pointers.

With a chance to tie, after harassing Keller into carrying the ball with 15 seconds left, the Bison missed three 3-pointers in the time remaining. There was no joyous celebration by the Elks as you’d expect in a close tournament game; they seemed simply too exhausted to celebrate.

Morrell scored nine points for the Elks. Adding eight each were Trent Pink and Mitchell Weege, a two-year starter in his final home game.

The Elks had a big lead early and Buffalo was never able to catch up.

“We shot really well in the first half. We made seven three-pointers. That really helped,” said Klasen.

Regarding his team’s problems with the press, Klasen just praised the efforts of the Bison and the coach Nick Guido in doing all the could to rally and make a game of it.

“They really came after us and made it tough to move the ball,” he said. “Our spacing was pretty poor and we couldn’t find that next pass. I think what happens when they trap that well is that just lock in on the two guys coming after you first and don’t see the floor.”

The Elks were seeded fourth and Buffalo fifth, each with 12-14 records in the regular season. The rematch was a stark contrast to their season-opening game won by the Elks 40-34.

The Elks had a good shooting game, 23-for-43 overall, with nine 3-pointers. They made 18-for-27 at the line and got out rebounded 31-22.

 

Elk River scoring — Jarin Haywood 1, Matt Keller 26 (5 reb, 4 ast), Zeke Delain 2, Trent Pink 8, Mitchell Weege 8, Wyatt Morrell 9, Jack Burger 19 (5 reb)

Allen Wilson scored eight points in a minute’s time late in the first half to turn the game around, and had 23 in the game, as the Rogers Royals turned back Brainerd 77-62 in their section opener Tuesday evening.

Steffan Musoke and Cole Murray added 19 points each for the Royals (19-9), who made 21 steals, led by Gunnar Bloom and Lance Lendl with five each, Musoke four and Wilson three.

Rogers advanced to the Section 8AAAA semifinals against Moorhead (21-5) on Saturday at St. Cloud State, 3:30 p.m. Moorhead beat Rogers 66-50 on Dec. 5 in Moorhead.

Brainerd led by as much as 26-16 in the first half and still was two baskets ahead before Wilson, junior guard, sank a 3-point shot, then stole the ball, got fouled and made one of two free shots, then stole it again and went for layup, and finally drained a 15-foot jump shot, giving his team a 39-36 lead.

Brainerd nailed its first six 3-pointers in the game but cooled off in the second half when Rogers came out to cover them tighter, and finished 10-for-22 outside the arc.

Chris Peterson led the Warriors with 19 points.

Rogers shot 24-for-45 overall (53 percent), 3-for-9 on three’s, and 26-for-33 at the line, led by Wilson, who cashed 13 of 14. Brainerd was 23-for-49 from the field and had a 22-19 rebound edge.

 

Rogers scoring — Steffan Musoke 19 (4 reb, 4 stl), Allen Wilson 23 (5 reb, 3 stl), Gunnar Bloom 2 (7 ast, 5 stl), Justin Bohnsack 2, Lance Lendl 9 (5 stl), Will Alexander 2, Adam Heyer 1, Cole Murray 19 (4 reb).
