ST. CROIX, Minn. – The Thunder Bay Chill are Deep North Division champions.

Tyler Attardo saw nothing but net in the 55th minute, after a Diego Reveco shot ricocheted off a St. Croix Legends defender and buried what proved to be the game-winning goal for the Chill, who edged the host St. Croix Legends 2-1.

At 8-2-1, the Chill clinched first place and leave the Legends, who led the division in the early stages of the 2024 season, in a precarious position if they hope to advance.

St. Croix needs to win its finale against Minneapolis FC on Sunday and hope Bavarian United doesn’t pick up a point in its final game against Rochester FC on Saturday.

The Legends (5-4-2) struck first on Wednesday.

Nathan Donovan broke through a pair of Thunder Bay defenders and slammed the ball past Chill keeper Josh Moya.

Will Hughes netted the equalizer for the Chill in the 19th, bouncing a free kick from about 12 yards out past Legends keeper Nolan Meyer.

The Chill wrap up their regular season schedule on Friday against Minneapolis FC.
