The Roseau Bantam AA team hosted the Stan Ostby VFW Bantam AA tournament the weekend of Jan 3-5.  5 of the top 10 teams in the state of Minnesota and 2 of top teams in North Dakota were here to compete.  Roseau come out of a long stretch of being off over the holidays and fell short of Albert Lea in game one.  The second game they matched up against a very big Minot team.  The smaller Roseau team could not match up with them and lost that one.  In Game 3 Roseau played Eden Prairie.  Roseau played a very good game and beat EP 6-5.  Sunday morning Roseau came out flat against a fast Fargo team and lost 9-1.  Hermantown, Osseo Maple Grove, Minot and Grand Forks won their respective pools.  Hermantown topped Minot and OMG beat Grand Forks in the semi-finals to advance the championship.  OMG and Hermantown were 1-1 with each other on games earlier in the year with this one being the rubber match.  It was a close hard fought game with OMG coming out on top 5-4.  Grand Forks beat Minot for 3rd place 5-0.  The Roseau Bantams have a light week with a top ranked Moorhead team coming to town on Sunday 1/12 at 4:30.
