#1 Winnipeg Monarchs vs RV Fargo Titans
UPSET ALERT! Down goes number one! The top ranked team in the MAHL, the Northland Champion Winnipeg Monarchs, found themselves on the wrong side of one of the biggest first round upsets in recent MAHL history at the hands of the Fargo Titans. The Titans came into this game as major underdogs, but even they were able to earn the attention of some of our MAHL analysts as they received votes for being among the top 25 teams in the league. It was a battle right from puck drop with both teams throwing their bodies into the other, giving it all for their teammates. We were tied 2-2 after 60 minutes of play and the tension was palpable within a sold out Max Bell Centre as the teams returned to the ice for overtime. It would only take a few minutes before we had our winner. Fargo forced a neutral zone turnover that developed into an odd man rush for the Titans who beat the Monarch netminder blocker side to complete the upset and send Fargo to the second round with a 3-2 overtime win over the #1 ranked Winnipeg Monarchs.

#14 Hibbing Greyhounds vs #20 Grand Forks Jets
The Hibbing Memorial Building was rocking with over 3,500 to watch their Greyhounds take on Grand Forks. This is the third all-time meeting between these two with the Jets taking games 1 & 2 back in the early 70s. Hibbing saw their chance to finally avenge those early exits at the hands of the Jets and took it, lighting the lamp 5 times on their way to a 5-3 victory. Grand Forks put up a good fight and made it a game in the third with a pair of goals to pull to within two, but the Hounds were able to close it out and advance to the second round.

#6 Roseau Stars vs Coleraine Trout
This was a quintessential Roseau Stars hockey game, dominating control of the puck and suffocating your opponents before they have the

1988 Kellogg Cup Playoffs: Knockout Round - Central

Mounds View Gunners vs Sauk Centre Spurs
It was a packed house in Mounds View as the Gunners welcomed the Sauk Centre Spurs in their first ever playoff appearance. The Gunners lived up to their name in the first, peppering the Spurs netminder with 16 shots and 2 goals to lead 2-0 after one. Sauk Centre got one back on a 5 on 3 powerplay in the second, but Mounds View was able to bury one early in the third to regain their two goal lead. The Spurs were kept off the board for the rest of the game, sending Mounds View to the next round with a 3-1 win.

Stillwater Volunteers vs Morris Mules
UPSET ALERT! In their first ever playoff appearance, the Morris Mules have gone into Stillwater and throttled the Volunteers on their own ice. It wasn't that Morris was head and shoulders above the Vols, but the chances that they were given seemed to always end up in the back of the net. Morris lit the lamp twice in the first and second and then one more in the third for a total of 5 on the night. Stillwater was able to bury a pair in the second but the Vols just couldn't seem to get any bounces to go their way. When the final horn sounded it was the visitors from Morris who led 5-2, sending the Mules to the next round with their first playoff win in team history.

Anoka Warriors vs Columbia Heights Hussars
It was a quintessential playoff hockey game in Anoka as the Warriors and Winged Hussars battled back and forth for 60 minutes only for extra time to be required. It was a very physical contest with both teams making sure to finish their checks, but there was also a lot of back and forth play on offense with both teams scoring three by the end of regulation to send us to overtime tied 3-3. A few minutes went by with both teams getting a couple looks on net but neither converting. Columbia Heights carried the puck throu

RV Fargo Titans vs Blackduck Mallards
Fargo came into this game with a chip on their shoulders, getting votes for the top 25 teams in the MAHL while being forced into the Knockout Round thanks to a stacked North Region. The Titans came out flying with 3 goals in the first, setting the tone early. Blackduck was able to net one in both the second and third, but Fargo didn't let up and went on to a 6-2 shellacking over the Mallards.

Coleraine Trout vs Park Rapids Hooks
Hodgins-Berardo Arena was sold out to watch Coleraine take on Park Rapids in the Hooks first season in existence. It took a while to get things going with neither team doing much on offense, but things finally picked up in the second. The Brookies broke first blood and held a 1-0 lead through the second. Park Rapids tied things up early in the third before Coleraine answered back to make it 2-1. Park Rapids didn't let the crowd or the pressure get to them though, weathering the storm and finding a rebound in front to force overtime with the game tying goal scored with under 5 minutes in regulation. The teams returned to the ice for sudden death and it didn't take long to decide a winner. Park Rapids got called for tripping just 52 seconds into OT to put the Trout on the man advantage. Coleraine won the faceoff in the offensive zone and set up the powerplay. They worked it to the point and went d to d before ripping a shot towards goal. A forward in the slot put his stick in the lane and redirected the shot, ringing it off the post and in. The crowd erupted and Trout swarmed over the boards to celebrate. Coleraine moves on with a 3-2 overtime win over Park Rapids, ending the Hooks inaugural season in the knockout round.

It's odd to see Mankato v Sioux Falls all the way down at the 8 v 9 game. Historically, if they met, it was usually in the Super Series or a game away from it.

Very true, and to be paired in the same section as Rochester is also really interesting since these three teams have historically been 3 of the best in the entire south region.
