Goal replays to be part of ND prep hockey tournaments

VALLEY CITY, N.D. — The governing body for high school sports in North Dakota has approved the limited use of instant replay in state hockey tournaments.

The High School Activities Association board of directors voted 8-1 on Tuesday to approve the use of video replay from overhead goal cameras, starting with next year's tournaments. An athletic review committee had recommended the move.

The board also made two major changes regarding basketball. In Class A, the maximum number of games in a season is being increased from 19 to 21 starting with the 2014-15 season.

In Class B, the girls basketball season will start ahead of the boys season, beginning in 2014-15. That means the season will end with the boys state tournament rather than with the girls tournament.
