It is almost tournament time for Minnesota boy's hockey teams and in Class A, the Northland is guaranteed to have one team in the Semifinals as Duluth Marshall and Hermantown clash in the Quarterfinals.

Hermantown edged Marshall 4-3 on January 3rd in the regular season and both can't wait for State.

"I don't really have an words to describe the feeling, it just feels great. We have high hopes and want to get back to that title game and redeem ourselves," says Hermantown Senior Wing Bo Gronseth.

"It is a dream come true and we knew when we got healthy that we were going to start rolling again and we were going to build our confidence because it is hard to win games when you have got guys injured," says Duluth Marshall Senior Goalie Caden Flaherty.

The Hilltoppers and Hawks battle at 1:00 pm Wednesday afternoon at the Xcel Energy Center. You can watch that game on WDIO/WIRT-TV.
