East Grand Forks boys hockey looking forward to two tough matchups

1 / 2
2 / 2

Now over to East Grand Forks boys hockey where the Green Wave return several pieces from last season's state tournament team.

Although EGF was defeated in the quarterfinals, the team gained valuable postseason experience.

East Grand Forks hosts Totino-Grace tomorrow and then on Saturday, it will be a rematch of the quarterfinals as EGF will welcome St. Cloud Cathedral to the Civic Center.

Having played an opponent like this last season, the Green Wave know what to expect.
