DULUTH, MN- The Hermantown Hawks are headed back to the state tournament after defeating Duluth Denfeld 6-0 on Wednesday in the Section 7A Final.
Blake Biondi and Zach Kilen each had two goals apiece to lead the Hawks.
"This is exactly what I wanted with this group of guys. These are my best friends, these are my family. Either or what happened tonight, I would never regret not leaving and coming back to my senior year. But I'm so glad this happened. We're not done yet, we're trying to win a state championship," said Biondi.
"I'm happy right now in so many ways. I'm happy for this team, I'm happy for these seniors, I'm happy for our community. Because I think the community realized last year not going. How hard it is, one. And what it means really. I think the community is jacked up to be going back," said Head Coach Patrick Andrews.
Hermantown is making its 16th state tournament appearance.
