work hard but there just isn't alot of skill on the team. i thought there goalie is so-so but they are winning some games and staying close with the big boys.
i still think the 3 top teams in the west are
two forwards that can catch a pass? i dont know where your from but get real......as far as bottineau goes im still not sold and I can garantee you mandan will AT LEAST split with them. With the west being what it is this year mandan has a great chance to make state. Right now id put them 3rd or 4th behind williston and century and MAYBE Bismarck. I cant put minot up here due simply to the fact that they lost to jamestown
Looks like we have a Mandan player/fan calling out a Bottineau player/fan not picking sides here but I hope you can back up the imo very bold statement about the split between the 2.
hey boys, i'm from bismarck. i watch alot of hockey, especially high school. i've noticed over the years when bottineau, hazen, or dickinson have good years nobody gives them any respect. when herbal won mr. hockey people said the talent was down. when dickinson had a good year, it was the teams are down. i notice bottineau has a good team and i give them my respect. keep in mind that bottineau and centruy have the same number of state tournament appearances (i think). a town the size of bottineau, 2500 people has the same number of state tournament appearances as some of the bigger towns. imagine if you multiplied there population by 3 or 4 how good they would be and still have under 10,000 people and the same goes for hazen.
