Willmar surging at right time
WILLMAR -- This may be Willmar's best chance to get to the boys hockey state tournament since 1947 when the upstart Cardinals beat Granite Falls in a best-of-three series for the region title.
The Cardinals (10-13), seeded No. 3 in Section 3A, will host No. 6 Marshall (14-12) tonight in the quarterfinal round. No. 2 Hutchinson (17-7) lurks up ahead in the quarterfinals and No. 1-seed New Ulm (24-3) will be favored to reach the championship game from the upper half of the bracket.
