Hot scoring continues for Majettes

January 19, 2014

With its 11 players constituting just two lines, the Minot High girls hockey team knows it must garner early leads before fatigue sets in. The Majettes learned that lesson back on Nov....

I forgot to mention the games with DL and Dickinson were never in doubt even before the puck was dropped. A 5 goal lead was plenty believe me.

Jays had a girl in Shaack that could of scored at will against those teams. She wasn't that kind of player. She could of led the state in scoring by piling up points against the teams you mentioned. Heck she played D even. With that said that Anderson kid of Minot should be in the running for senior of the year. She can motor. Going to be a couple years before the Jays get in the mix again.

Hockey, i saw online Jamestown beat DL 6-0 and 6-1 and Dicky 7-1 and 12-1 last year. Different teams different year thats for sure, but those scores are relatively close minus the 12-1 game but a far cry from being 20 plus on a team. I have never heard of a coach just passing it around and not trying to score with a five goal lead? Good Luck this weekend playing Minot and Williston.

Minot has beat Williston twice this year and just beat GF 4-1 (split series). So looking at those scores wouldnt it make sense Minot scores a few more goals than those other teams that still scored into the 20's?

Hockeydude and Ibelieve- so these coaches from Grand Forks and Williston should be embarrassed too? Jan. 18: 1 Devils Lake at Williston 22 the day after Minot played them. Dec. 20th: 1 Devils Lake at GrandForks20

14 Minot at Devils Lake 0 Nov. 22 0 Devils Lake at Minot 26 Jan. 17 70 plus shots in both games. I would say Minot improved, pucks just went in the net.

Ibelieveicantspell, You stated,"Do these girls skate if they do not meet the coaching staffs expectations? Let me know if you have the correct answer?" What does this mean and what does this have to do with the score of the DL game? What does this have to do with the coaching staff i guess your not pleased with then? It is possible to have "no" knowledge of hockey but not "now" knowledge. Anyway, I think I have watched enough hockey to "know" when a team is flat out better than another. But let me get this straight, your mad at the coaches for winning?? I dont understand.

I am an uncle to a player on the Jamestown girls team. I read this score of 26-0 and just shook my head. Our team this year is young and will take some time to grow but I know for a fact last years team who took 4th in state with 2 lines 3 D and a goalie would never run up a score like that. They could of done it against DL or Dickinson but instead they worked on their passing. Their coach from last year would not allow his team to embarrass another team like that. Good luck to the Majettes the rest of the way but next time you play a team like that show a little more class.

Loc, Ben has good comments I agree but now knowledge of hockey is a always something that should make a presence.

Ben-dummy! no the coaches did not suit up! Really what a juvenile thing to say! No I do not live in DL! Do these girls skate if they do not meet the coaching staffs expectations? Let me know if you have the correct answer?

Benelli I am not calling out the girls who play the sport, but the coaching staff in which they play for!!

Ibelieve, I will be at the next home game to cheer on and support this "classless" team that proudly represents their school and community. By the way, have you compared the MHS honor roll to that roster? Wow, most are highest and high honors, the rest honor students. By the way, they have a "genie" on their jersey, its the MHS school logo, not a "bullseye".

Ibelieve, so are you a fan/parent/family member/from Devils Lake?? Just wondering, because when I played sports not everyone got a trophy. You had to earn it. That was through discipline and hard work. You took your lumps and learned your lessons along the way. Do I wish the game against DL was better, yes. Are they down this year, yes. Is Minot playing good hockey right now, yes. They are working hard and having success. Its the other teams job to stop them. Not the players to let up, or coaches to say, "Ok, dont play as hard now because were up by ten."

Ibelieve, I hope that girls hockey team gets more support and recognition from fans like me and the community. I hope their AD sits down and tells the team and coaching staff what a remarkable job they have done to this point. It must not be easy being so down in numbers.

Ibelieve, Did you see the Majettes play on Saturday? They beat the Grand Forks Knightriders (GF Central/GF Roughriders/they combine in girls hockey I dont know why)4-1. The MDN wrote a nice article covering the hottest girls hockey team in the state. Wow they are on a roll. That Anderson girl is scoring like crazy and Swanson is solid in net. The classless program and its coaches must be doing something right to be a top team in the state with two lines and one goalie! I heard they even have one of their top defenceman injured right now with a concussion.

Ibelieve, The MDN article you were not happy with was a recap of the game and who won. It simply stated how the scoring was well rounded and a good team effort. That is a typical sports brief last time i checked.

Ibelieve, did the coaches suit up and play to? I just saw them behind the bench. I didnt see them scoring any goals, or hear them saying to the next and only line up,"Ok, lets really try to run the score up on the last place team in the state because that will make a statement". Didnt see or hear anything like that. Was there some off ice issue i missed? There was only four penalties the whole game. Each team had 2. I might have missed something though?

Ibelieve, I would think that any team on a winning streak that sits high in the state standings would have a "bullseye" on them. Classless? Were there big celebrations after the game?, after the goals?, because I just saw them line up for the faceoff right away ready to play again. They shook hands after the game, the coaches talked at center ice, and that was it.

Ibelieve, I believe you meant classless? Since the game is now unclassified against Devils Lake I will talk about it.First off were you even there? Because I was. One team played better than the other for 51 minutes. What were they supposed to do quit playing, let the other team catch up? They have two lines, two! Its not like they could have sat their top lines and let the bottom ones play.

Ibelieve- So you would prefer the MDN to not report the news instead? This story is about MHS hockey's 4-1 win anyway.

Oh by the way what a poor choice by the MDN to write and print this article.

How embarrassing for MHS hockey! What kind of coaching staff allows his/ her team run a score up like this? All this did is put a bullseye on the back of the girls playing and labeled that program as very "CLASSLESS"! Hopefully the AD has a good long sit down with a few people to get an explanation for they way this handled on and off the bench.
