A trio of road games Tuesday came out in favor of the home teams against both Detroit Lakes soccer teams and the volleyball team in their season-opener at Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton.
Senior captain Anna Jones continued her hot streak scoring for DL girls soccer. Jones recorded a fifth goal in five halves of play at St. Cloud Cathedral but the Crusaders allowed only Jones' first-half tally in a 3-1 victory.
The victory was the first for Cathedral improving to 1-1 after a 4-0 loss to Bemidji at home to start the season.
Detroit Lakes is still chasing a first win on the season. DL is 0-2-1 and the Lakers face a tough test in 2-0 Bemidji Thursday, Aug. 29 at home beginning at 5 p.m. The defending Section 8A champion Lumberjacks have outscored their opponents 20-0 in the first two games.
Bemidji blanks Laker boys
Ethan Mock scored five goals in an 8-0 Lumberjacks rout of the Detroit Lakes boys soccer team at Chet Anderson Stadium in Bemidji.
Silas Hess had two goals and two assists, the latter giving him 39 helpers for his career and establishing a new all-time program record.
Detroit Lakes suffered another loss in the game, that of senior Ben Heimark who was injured late in the first half by Josh Wright on a sliding tackle at midfield. Wright was issued a red card for the penalty and Bemidji played the second half a man down. The Jacks managed to score three times in the latter half playing 10 on 11.
Like the girls team, Bemidji (2-0) is throttling opponents early in the season having scored 13 goals and not allowed one.
Detroit Lakes dropped to 1-2 and face Little Falls (0-2) at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29 in the nightcap of a doubleheader with the girls team.
Rebels spoil volleyball opener
Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton swept Detroit Lakes 3-0 in the season-opener for both clubs in Glyndon.
The Rebels got off to quick starts taking the opening two sets 25-13 and 25-7 before DL challenged in the third set falling 25-19.
"They let the crowd and pressure get to them and struggled to play their game," head coach Lynnsey Machakaire said. "We had moments we pulled within reach but struggled to keep the momentum. We saw glimpses of what they have in them towards the third set but it wasn't soon enough. Tomorrow is a new day and we have to come into practice ready to work because Bemidji is going to be tough."
Detroit Lakes (0-1) opens the home side of the schedule Thursday, Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m. against the Jacks (2-1).
