We are a week into the season and we already have some movement in the Power Rankings. Des Lacs-Burlington had a large margin victory over Stanley and the Blue Jays dropped from the Top 10. We have some nasty weather headed to North Dakota so we should expect some game changes to schedules. A couple of our Top 10 teams have not played yet, hopefully, they are able to get games in this week. Best games to watch tonight for Class B: HCV @ Kindred, Oakes @ LLM, and Bottineau @ North Prarie.
