The Holidays are quickly approaching and with it, tournaments and events. That means a lot of good matchups between a number of quality teams will ensue over the next few weeks. The cream is quickly rising to the top while some teams are still figuring things out.
Here are some games to watch this week:
Bismarck at Bismarck Century – Tuesday, Dec. 18
Can anyone slow down Bismarck Century? The Patriots are undefeated on the season and sporting wins over most of the teams that figure to contend for top spots in the state. The Demons are 2-3 on the season but have the talent to turn things around in a hurry. A win – or a competitive showing even – against the top team in the state could be quite the springboard into the next year coming up.
Dickinson vs. Williston – Tuesday, Dec. 18
Dickinson is off to a solid start on the season with three wins including one over Minot. This will be the Midgets’ last game before heading to Rapid City for a game at the end of next week and a victory over a decent Williston team that’s proven to be no pushover could be important. Williston’s played a grueling schedule to this point and has been competitive. A win against a similarly-talented team could be a big boost heading into the holiday stretch.
Devils Lake at West Fargo – Thursday, Dec. 20
The Firebirds are 4-0 on the season and eyeing an EDC regular season title after winning 15 games in league last season. Devils Lake junior forward Jessica Mertens is one of the best players in the state and a player to watch going forward. She’s a potential Player-of-the-Year type in the EDC.
