Other games to keep an eye on

South St. Paul vs. Hill-Murray, 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 26. Longtime Metro East Conference rivals No. 6-1A South St. Paul (3-1-0, 0-0-0) and No. 7-2A Hill-Murray (3-2-1, 0-0-0) are perennial powerhouses. South St. Paul goaltender Delaney Norman, a freshman, already has two shutouts.

Duluth Marshall vs. Duluth, 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 26. The Battle of Duluth promises to offer a much needed confidence boost to the winner, as both Duluth Marshall (2-3-0, 0-0-0) and Duluth (1-4-0, 0-0-0) are off to slow starts — in part because of their difficult schedules. Junior Maren Friday, who has committed to Union, is the catalyst for the No. 7-1A Hilltoppers. 

Proctor/Hermantown vs. Blake, 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 29. Another Duluth-area team navigating a rugged schedule, No. 2-1A Proctor/Hermantown (2-5-0, 0-1-0) has already played, and lost to, the defending state champions in both classes (Edina in 2A; Breck in 1A). No. 2-2A Blake (4-1-1, 1-0-0) boasts one of the state’s scoring leaders in Cornell commit Lily Delianedis (eight goals, nine assists).
