"Obviously in this quarterfinal we have 10 players that were with us last season, and 10 players that havent been here before. So for them to get comfortable and be able to relax and just play was really helpful in the quarter final. So moving on to the semis they have that experience they got that game under their belt and now they can move forward," said Mirage head coach Emma Stauber.

Puck drop for the Class A semifinal game between the Mirage and Spartans is set for Thursday at 11 A.M, at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
