The Benilde-St. Margaret’s Red Knights dominated the Armstrong Falcons on Thursday, February 21 at the St. Louis Park Rec Center for the first game of the section 6AA tournament. BSM scored nine goals on their way to the quarterfinal victory, shutting out the Falcons 9-0. Captain Grant Besse scored four goals and captain T.J. Moore scored two. Daniel Labosky, also a captain, earned a season-high six assists in the commanding performance.

The section semifinals will take place at Bloomington Ice Garden on Saturday at 3:30. The Red Knights will face the Eden Prairie Eagles, who they defeated just two weeks ago 3-2. “We’ll get everybody pumped up and come out hard against Eden Prairie,” Moore said.
