Wayzata Edges BSM to Win Section 6AA Boys Hockey Title
It turned into a nail-biter, but the Wayzata boys hockey team held on to beat Benilde-St. Margaret’s 3-2 in the Section 6AA championship game.
Wayzata’s Kohl Sauer and Jake Schneider scored in the first period to give the Trojans a 2-0 lead.
When Sauer scored his second of the night early in the third period, it appeared to be a comfortable 3-0 lead for the Trojans.
Benilde answered with goals by Tristan Sarsland and Grant Ellings to pull within 3-2 with just under three minutes remaining.
Wayzata held off the late push by the Red Knights to secure the win.
Wayzata will make its sixth appearance in the state tournament.
Quarterfinal games are Wednesday March 31 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
