St. Cloud Tech (sick name) player takes down a Spring Lake Park middie with a huge hit as he comes out of the box. This coverage was filmed in Blaine, Minnesota, by North Metro TV.
Comments under the video state that the player received a three minute non-releasable. I’m not condemning this hit because I think it may have been legal. Officials today, automatically throw a flag if the player did not have enough time to react to an oncoming player. However, the Spring Lake Park player had plenty of time! His peripheral was limited. I’m going to have naysayers that will note that the Spring Lake Park player was hit from the side, which is technically from behind. Further, one might observe that the player extended his arms, crosschecked, and etc. The hit was good. We hope the player on the other end of it is ok.
