Hess hat trick leads Bemidji over DL

The Bemidji boys soccer team has looked unstoppable so far this season, and Tuesday was no different as the Lumberjacks cruised to a 6-0 shutout victory over Detroit Lakes at Rotary Soccer Park in a matchup of Lakes to Prairie Conference and Section 8A foes.

The win brings the Jacks to 3-0 on the season, outscoring their opponents 19-0.

Bemidji opened the contest with two goals in the first half from Ben Hess (5’) and Silas Hess (30’).

Laker keeper Trey Seebold kept Silas Hess off the board in the 18th minute stopping a penalty kick, but the Jacks continued to pressure the net in the second half.

In the 52nd minute, Ethan Mock hit Silas Hess from the corner for a header to make it 3-0, and Hess then completed his hat trick in the 61st after taking a nifty pass from Aspen Galdamez.

Six minutes later, Galdamez hit Ben Hess for Bemidji’s fifth goal, and Will Schwindt finished the scoring in the 72nd with a tally assisted by Silas Hess.

Silas Hess leads the Jacks with seven goals on the season.

Detroit Lakes (1-2) plays at Little Falls in their next match Thursday, Aug 30.
