HERMANTOWN HAWKS

The documentary, which follows the Hermantown Hawks and Eveleth-Gilbert Golden Bears through the 2019-20 season, hits movie theaters on Friday.
The 18,950 fans witnessed an evenly matched pair of Northwest Suburban conference foes, with Andover (25-5-1) and Maple Grove (23-7-1) providing a high-octane track meet that featured disallowed goals, missed rebounds, bone-crunching hits, dramatic saves and a shot that rang off the crossbar and goalpost.
The Cardinals led 1-0 early, but Hermantown responded with seven unanswered goals to secure their spot in Saturday's championship game. Alexandria plays Mahtomedi for third place at 9 a.m. on Saturday back at the Xcel Energy Center.
These two programs last met in the Class A state semifinals on March 9, 2018 when Alexandria won 6-1 to halt a stretch of eight straight seasons where the Hawks had made the state championship game. The Cardinals are eager for another opportunity against a 27-2 Hawks team that has been the favorite to bring home a championship all season.
