It was a heartbreaking loss to end the season. The Bemidji Lumberjacks boys soccer team took #1 seed Mankato West into overtime, then into penalty kicks in the quarterfinals of the Minnesota State High School League State Tournament yesterday in St Cloud. Tied 1-1 after regulation, the teams played a scoreless overtime, and went through nine rounds of penalty kicks. Mankato West won the shootout 6-5. Bemidji ends the season at 18-3.
The Bemidji Lumberjacks volleyball team won their first round match last night. Bemidji beat Alexandria 3-1 and will travel to Willmar Saturday for the Section semifinals. The Section 8A volleyball playoffs continue tonight. In the east, #1 seed Win-E-Mac hosts Mahnomen, Blackduck hosts Red Lake County Central, Fosston will host Kelliher Northome and Cass Lake Bena travels to Lake of the Woods.
In section 8AA, Bagley travels to Dilworth tonight while Park Rapids hosts Staples Motley.
In section 5A, play-in games are tonight, quarterfinals are tommorow. Pine River is the East #1 seed. Nevis is the #2 seed. Walker is the #3 seed. Laporte is the #4 seed.
The Timberwolves jumped out to a fast start but at the finish it was all Grizzlies, as they opened the season with a 102-98 victory over Minnesota in Memphis Wednesday night. Each team was playing its first regular season game under a new coach. The Timberwolves got off to a great start under new boss Tom Thibodeau, racing out to a 16-1 lead. Karl-Anthony Towns had 16 points by halftime on 7-11 shooting. The Timberwolves will face the Grizzlies again in their home opener at Target Center on Tuesday, Nov. 1. But first they have a game in Sacramento on Saturday night.
