The No. 11 Wayzata boys' hockey team for the second consecutive year knocked off top-ranked Hermantown to begin the Hawks' season, a 5-3 victory at the Hermantown Hockey Arena on Friday.
The loss also spoils the head coaching debut for Pat Andrews, who replaces long-time bench boss Bruce Plante.
Hermantown, the two-time defending MSHSL Class A state champion, trailed 2-0 for almost two periods until Jacob Herter scored on a power play late in the second period to get the Hawks within one goal.
The Trojans, however, scored 50 seconds later to again stake out to a two-goal lead.
Hermantown scored twice in the third period, another from Herter and from Darian Gotz, but Wayzata also added two goals to maintain its lead.
The Hawks are now (0-1-0) on the season and will travel to face Lakeville South tomorrow at 3 p.m.
