Chisago Lakes-North Branch rivalry renewed tonight with Vikings on a roll
North Branch 4, Highland Park 2
Having played two games in the previous three days, a tired bunch of Viking hockey players trudged into Highland Arena in St. Paul to take on the St. Paul Highland Park Scots Tuesday, February 17.  “We were out of gas,” said Viking head coach Matt Cottingham.  “We were not on our ‘A’ game and didn’t know what was going to happen.”  But the Vikings have matured to the point they can win a game against an opponent they should probably beat even when they are not at their best.  Ryan Byrkit scored with just over six minutes left in the third period to break a 2-2 tie and the Vikings went on to win the game 4-2.
