Andover, Blaine, Spring Lake Park, Anoka, St. Francis and Legacy Christian each have a very real chance of playing well past the regular season finale.
Blaine searched for a way to hand Anoka a third defeat this season and it came in the form of a 6-3 boys’ hockey victory in the Section 5AA semifinals.
Anoka (2-8-0, 4-11-0) was down 3-1 with six minutes left in the first period of Saturday’s afternoon matinee against crosstown rival Coon Rapids (0-7-1, 4-10-1) before scoring nine unanswered goals for a 10-3 win at the Anoka Ice Center Jan. 14.
