Enduring chilly temperatures, a non-stop drizzling rain, slick turf and a slippery ball, the Bemidji High School boys soccer team still got it done. Despite the weather, everything seemed to click for the Lumberjacks (14-2-2), and a Linaes Whiting hat trick led them to a 7-0 Section 8A win Saturday over Detroit Lakes (7-9-1) at Chet Anderson Stadium.
BEMIDJI -- It took longer than she wanted, but Harper Toward returned to the soccer field Thursday night when the Lumberjacks took on Detroit Lakes. She picked the right game to return. After regulation ended with a 1-1 score, senior striker Isabelle Morin found Toward for a perfect through-pass for a breakaway and she didn’t miss her spot.
Maddie Herzog, a soon-to-be senior at Detroit Lakes High School, shot a 71 in the qualifying round of the women's regular division Monday morning to secure the top seed heading into match play. "It was just kind of all clicking yesterday," Herzog said. "I was hitting the ball very well and putting was just working for me."
After Bemidji forced a second championship game with a walkoff win on Sunday, Moorhead head coach Bryant Bergeson said the Blues hadn’t done enough to build on their lead when they had chances. They fixed that on Monday, jumping out to an 8-2 lead after four innings and taking the Minnesota Division I Substate American Legion title game 14-6 in Alexandria.
Bemidji's Otto Grimm hit a walkoff two-RBI double with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning against Moorhead to claim a 4-3 win Sunday in the first championship game of the Minnesota Division I Substate American Legion baseball tournament. The Blues scored two runs in the top off the first inning on three singles, a hit batter and a sacrifice fly, and they held onto the lead until Grimm stepped up to the plate in the ninth and found the right-center gap.
The Alexandria girls basketball team’s hopes for a state title came to an end Thursday with a 50-34 loss to Orono in the Class-3A State Tournament semifinals. The Section 8AAA champion Cardinals (26-5) held their own in the first half and went into the intermission losing by only a 24-20 deficit, but the Spartans came out strong after the break and outscored Alexandria 16-5 in the opening nine minutes of the second half and didn’t look back.
Parkers Prairie was last on Wheaton-Herman-Norcross girls basketball team’s path to the Section 6A finals, and it fell like every other team so far this year. The Warriors overpowered the Panthers to take the game 46-28 Tuesday at the University of Minnesota-Morris and improve to 29-0 on the season.
Kaya Feldhake, Kendall Kohler, Kiyana Miller, and Macy Hatlestad, all seniors, totaled 52 points in a 67-31 win over Detroit Lakes on Thursday night at Alexandria Area High School. The No. 2 ranked Cardinals (8-2) scored the first 10 points of the game and didn’t look back.
BEMIDJI — Isabelle Morin’s first half goal was enough for Laura Bieberdorf, as she secured a six-save 1-0 shutout for the Lumberjacks on Thursday against Detroit Lakes. Bieberdorf kept the Lakers (10-5-1) from taking a lead seven minutes into the game when she jumped up and caught a high arcing shot headed just under the crossbar. “She did a good job getting the high chips,” Bemidji coach Logan Larsen said. “There were a couple where if she didn’t time her jump just right, they were in the back of the net.
