Minutes after the Duluth East boys hockey team completed a strenuous workout Monday afternoon at the Heritage Center, an observer remarked “tough practice” to Greyhounds coach Mike Randolph.
“Oh yeah, we don’t play until Thursday,” Randolph responded bluntly.
Before the season, Duluth East boys hockey coach Mike Randolph didn’t have much time to ponder his team’s chances of reaching a sixth consecutive state tournament.
He was too busy trying to craft a contender amid a youth movement.
“I didn’t really think about it, to be honest, because we had so much work in front of us,” the coach said Wednesday afternoon.
Duluth East goaltender Gunnar Howg had a good vantage point of Avery Peterson’s wicked slap shot as it cruised past him.
The Grand Rapids senior sharpshooter ripped a shot from the left wing early in Saturday’s Section 7AA high school boys hockey semifinal to give his team the lead. But East scored twice soon after and shut down Peterson the rest of the way in a 5-2 victory at Amsoil Arena that put the top-seeded Greyhounds one win from their sixth consecutive trip to the Minnesota Class AA state tournament.
Hip hop music blared from the Duluth East locker room at the Heritage Center, echoing down the hall as each player exited.
The adjacent locker room, the one belonging to Duluth Denfeld, was silent. Nowhere in Duluth could the thrill of victory and agony of defeat be seen more than right there on Saturday afternoon.
Esko’s sharpshooting trio of Marc Peterson, Kory Deadrick and Casey Staniger scored 17, 13 and 10 points, respectively, as the Eskomos’ boys basketball team topped host Duluth East 50-38 Thursday night.
GRAND RAPIDS — Fans filing into the IRA Civic Center in Grand Rapids on Thursday night had every reason to expect another instant classic between a pair of hockey rivals that know how to produce drama.
Scoring always has come naturally for Dyami Starks. Whether it was pouring in a school-record 55 points in a game at Duluth East, concluding his prep career as just the 11th player in state history to eclipse 2,500 points or becoming the first Northeast Conference gunner to reach the century mark in the season’s first three games, Starks has shown a knack for putting the ball in the basket.
