The Hawks ended a six-year streak of losses in the Class 1A state championship game by defeating Breck 5-0 in Saturday’s title game at Xcel Energy Center. Hermantown jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period and scored their five goals on only 18 shots on goal.

The state championship was the second for Hermantown in 13 trips to state. The Hawks also won the Class 1A tournament in 2007.

Congratulations to Hermantown boys hockey for being this week’s Old Dutch Quality Team of the Week.
