Celebrating hockey in Owatonna
The Steele County Blades hosted a Celebrate Hockey night in Owatonna Tuesday. The Owatonna Chamber of Commerce After Hours opened the night. An OT loss ended it.
The "Business After Hours" drew a good crowd to the upper banquet room at Four Seasons Centre. The Blades honored members of the Owatonna High School boys and girls hockey teams at first intermission. Several between period contests were held.
The game was a back-and-forth battle with Hudson, who prevailed with an overtime goal. The Blades led 1-0 and 3-1. But the Crusaders tied it with two minutes to go in regulation and won it 4-3 late in the overtime.
Steele County hosts Edina Friday night at 7:00 and the Minnesota Owls Saturday at 3:00.
