BEMIDJI -- Shooting from the penalty kick spot for the win, Katie Alto tucked the game winner in the corner of the net, sealing the Lumberjacks’ berth to the Class A state tournament for the second straight year. After 80 minutes of regulation and two 10-minute overtimes ended with a 1-1 tie, the Section 8A Championship went to a shootout, and Bemidji executed nearly to perfection.
BEMIDJI -- For the third straight season, the Bemidji High School boys soccer team is bound for the Class A state tournament. Silas Hess scored three goals in the first half to lead the Lumberjacks to a 3-1 win over Sartell-St. Stephen in the Section 8A championship Thursday at Chet Anderson Stadium. “It feels great,” Hess said. “We obviously have put in a lot of work ever since we were little. I think it’s well deserved for the boys.”
BEMIDJI -- On Oct. 19 last year, the Bemidji High School boys and girls soccer teams both won Section 8A titles on the campus of St. Cloud State. Tonight, they hope to accomplish the same feat, this time in their home town, as they each take on Sartell-St. Stephen in their respective championship games. The Bemidji boys will open the day with a 6:15 p.m. start at Chet Anderson Stadium, with the girls to follow at 8.
ST CLOUD -- Despite a lack of playoff implications, the Bemidji High School football team finished its regular season in dramatic fashion Friday night, defeating St. Cloud Tech, 31-30, in overtime at Huskie Stadium on the campus of St. Cloud State. The Tigers (5-3) played the contest without their regular starting quarterback, junior Nate Trewick, and instead ran a wildcat-type formation with running backs Troy Feddema and Kedrik Osuorah.
BEMIDJI -- The Crusaders didn’t make it easy, but the North No.1 seeded Bemidji High School boys soccer team battled through a physical Section 8A semifinal game en route to a 4-2 win over South No. 2 St. Cloud Cathedral on Tuesday at Chet Anderson Stadium.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School girls soccer team went into Tuesday’s Section 8A semifinal game looking for a shutout, and, after two set piece goals and an insurance tally late, they achieved the feat with a 3-0 win over St. Cloud Cathedral to advance to the section final. “One of the goals we set was a shutout,” BHS head coach Logan Larsen said. “A win’s a win, but a shutout was one thing we were aiming for, especially with changing formations up a little bit, so I was happy we got that.”
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School football team has just one blemish on the schedule so far, and they hope to keep it that way going into the Section 8-5A tournament. To do that, the Lumberjacks will have to get through their week eight opponent, St. Cloud Tech (5-2). Kickoff between the two teams is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Husky Stadium on the campus of St. Cloud State.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School boys soccer team continued to capitalize on chances in Saturday’s Section 8A quarterfinal game against Detroit Lakes, using six scorers to rack up seven goals against the Lakers at Chet Anderson Stadium.
BEMIDJI -- Behind by a goal for 42 minutes, junior Emma Dean lined up for a corner kick with time ticking away from the Lumberjacks’ shot at another Section 8A title. “Emma took a second,” Bemidji head coach Logan Larsen said. “She composed herself rather than rushing it, because the last however many minutes of the game, we’d been rushing it. She just slowed down and placed it, so it was a very smart, composed moment for Emma.”
SARTELL -- The Bemidji High School football team will finish this fall’s regular season with an unblemished record (4-0) in section play after a 50-6 dominating defeat of Sartell-St. Stephen on Friday in Sartell. In addition to a stellar defense that held the Sabres (0-7) to 85 total yards and one touchdown on the tail end of a nine-play drive for just 28 yards, the Lumberjacks (6-1) spread the ball around to multiple weapons for chunks of yardage as well as touchdowns.
