Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Postseason hockey begins in North Dakota tomorrow and the South-Shanley boys will open the EDC tournament on their home ice facing Red River.
The Bruins, once one of the dominant forces in East region hockey, have not made it state since 2010.
That's a rallying point for this senior class, determined to end that streak; South-Shanley has beaten nearly all of its EDC rivals, including Grafton, Davies and tomorrow's opponent Red River.
Dallas Raftevold/Bruins Sr. Defenseman: “I feel like we are peaking right now, it's a good time to peak. Like every team in the east they are a good team and we have to play our best hockey through this whole weekend. I think we are just coming together as a team and playing well and having fun and that's what it's all about.”
Tom George/Bruins Sr. Forward: “Definitely huge to get that home team advantage and playing at the Scheel's one more time, definitely have to play good D against Red River, get that first win and hopefully it will take off from there.”
Wade Storey/Bruins Head Coach: “Group of seniors, 11 of them who are committed to this and haven't been able to get there the last couple years so this is an incentive for them to take advantage of this home game and get on a roll here and good things will happen.”
South split with Red River during the season, 5:15 faceoff tomorrow at Scheels Arena.
