Duluth East senior defenseman Meirs Moore has been patiently considering his Division I hockey scholarship opportunities, as the Greyhounds prepare for the rest of the regular season and the upcoming Section 7AA tournament.

It’s likely that Moore, a 5-foot-9 offensive dynamo, will join Sioux City of the United States Hockey League after the high school season.

His eventual college choice? Minnesota and Penn State are best-bets.

Moore had a natural hat trick — all on shots from the point, on the power-play — to power No. 4-ranked Duluth East to a 4-2 come-from-behind victory over No. 5 Minnetonka on Tuesday night at Duluth Heritage Sports Center. The Greyhounds, who improved to 16-4, trailed 2-0 in the first period.

GardenIn other high school hockey games played Tuesday night:

. Duluth Denfeld pounded Eveleth-Gilbert 11-1 (Hunters did not report game statistics).

. Cloquet-Esko-Carlton scored three third-period goals to upset Superior 4-2 in a much-anticipated Lake Superior Conference game at Wessman Arena. Daniel Mikel and Aaron Miller scored for the Spartans.

. . .

For the fourth season in a row, the College of St. Scholastica led all schools with 80 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference academic all-conference awards in the fall of 2012.

Football held on to the top spot for having the most academic all-conference awards, claiming 104 of the 360 certificates handed out. Women’s soccer was second with 63 awards, eight ahead of women’s cross country honorees. Volleyball had 52 selections.
