Edina is the favorite heading into the Tourney and it showed why in the first round matchup vs Elk River.

Edina 6
Elk River 2

Freshman Freddie Schneider got Edina on the board in the first period and they took a 1-0 lead to the locker room.  They did score another but it was waived off after replay review due to an offsides call.
The second period was one to forget for Elk River, Edina would score 5 more goals, including 3 by Casey Vandertop to ice the win for the Hornets. Elk River would get a goal by Daniel Babcock and Kole Mears added one late in the 3rd period but it was too little to late for the Elks.  Edina advances to await the winner of Grand Rapids/White Bear Lake Friday night at the Xcel Energy Center.
