Eden Prairie-Benilde-St. Margaret's Game Ends in Brawl

Earlier this week, a Minnesota high school playoff game between Bloomington Jefferson and Academy of Holy Angels ended with a skirmish between the two teams. On Saturday afternoon, the same thing happened again in a sectional semifinal between Eden Prairie and Benilde-St. Margaret's.

Eden Prairie held on for a 1-0 victory over the Red Knights to advance to next week's 6AA sectional final against either Wayzata or Minnetonka. But the Eagles could be missing a few players due to suspension a post-game fight:

And another from Buckyhockey.com's Andy Johnson:

Video is pretty limited at this point, but you kind of get the gist of what happened. Certainly more serious than the Jefferson-Holy Angels fight, which cleared after 30 seconds or so before both teams shook hands.

UPDATE: The MSHSL has ruled on suspensions for Eden Prairie's players, and the Eagles will be without three players for the section final against Minnetonka.

Sullivan's loss hurts the most for Eden Prairie as he is one of their top defenseman. He's #20 in the video's above seen destroying a BSM player, so it's a tough argument. Argetsinger scored the only goal of the game against BSM, and Roehl is a regular contributor on defense.  It will definitely hurt their chances in the final.
