Section 6AA is usually one of the best girls hockey sections in Minnesota, and the addition of Blake this year has made the section even tougher.
Wayzata earned the No. 3 seed and the Trojans faced a challenge from No. 6 seed Benilde-St. Margaret's Saturday at Parade Ice Garden. The Red Knights took a 2-1 lead before Wayzata tied it in the second period, then took the lead for good later in the second on a shorthanded breakaway goal by Gretchen Branton.
The Trojans outshot Benilde 41-11 but had to hold on for the win.
Wayzata meets No. 2-seed Blake in the second semifinal Wednesday at Parade Ice Garden. No. 1-seed Edina plays Cretin-Derham Hall in the first semifinal.
