MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota high school hockey season wrapped up Saturday with one of the most exciting tournaments in recent memory and two champions being crowned at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Neither team is a stranger to state championships. St. Thomas Academy came back from a 4-2 third period deficit, scoring three times to get a 4-3 win over Hermantown for the Class A title. It’s the third straight title for the Cadets, who are moving up to Class AA next season.

It was the fourth straight title game appearance for Hermantown, which is now 0-4 in those appearances. With the game tied 4-4 and St. Thomas Academy on a power play late in the third period, Tom Novak scored on a slap shot with six seconds left in regulation to give the Cadets the game-winning goal.

In Saturday night’s Class AA title game, Cullen Munson scored twice and Anthony Walsh’s breakaway goal sealed a 4-2 victory for Edina over Hill-Murray, the top seed in the tournament. It’s the 11th state title for the Hornets. Josh French scored both goals for Hill-Murray.
