Seven-game win streak highlighted by Randolph’s 700th win

Not only did Mike Randolph join elite company with his 700th win last week, his St. Thomas Academy Cadets also joined elite company by cracking the top 5 in the Let’s Play Hockey Rankings presented by Tradition Companies.

The Cadets have now won seven straight to climb to No. 4 in the rankings. Those wins have included wins over No. 5 Edina and No. 6 Benilde-St. Margaret’s.

The Cadets are allowing just two goals per game and have outscored opponents 51-28. Jimmy Zavoral leads the team with 12 goals and Will Dosan leads the team with 20 points.

The Cadets win over Benilde-St. Margaret’s bumped the Red Knights out of the top 5, but they have proven to be a tough team to beat. Edina maintains the No. 5 spot with wins over Lakeville South and Holy Family.

Chanhassen stayed at No. 3 with a pair of wins where they outscored Delano and Duluth East 14-0. Wayzata and Minnetonka remained undefeated and remain a notch above the rest of the pack having held steady in those spots for most of the season.
