Crimson drop 2 in boys’ hockey
Maple Grove lost to defending state champion Benilde-St. Margaret 5-1 and to conference foe Centennial in last week’s boys’ hockey action.
The Crimson fired plenty of shots (30 against Benilde and 34 against Centennial) but netted only one goal by top scorer Sam Valerius. They hope to find their scoring touch in the St. Louis Park Holiday Tournament. They open against Elk River Thursday, Dec. 27.
