The Century Patriots look to make it back to the state title game.
Century will be the top seed from the West after they defeated Bismarck High, 2-0, in the West Region tournament championship game.
This year, the Pats reinvented themselves. Last season, they relied on scoring. This time, Century has Matthew Schmidt, one of the best goalies in the state.
So they think it’s possible to return to the title game.
“Two of our captains are defensemen,” senior goalie Matthew Schmidt said. “We just got a good group of guys that have played with each other for probably 10 years, so we all kind of know how we play.”
Century’s first round opponent is Grand Forks Red River.
