Bemidji softball team scores 36 runs in doubleheader sweep of Moorhead


In recent years the Bemidji softball team has held the upper hand over Moorhead but most of the games have been up for grabs into the late stages.

"The typical game is about 7-2 or 6-3," said BHS coach Brad Takkunen. "I really don't know what happened Thursday."

Takkunen was referring to a pair of blowout victories by the Lumberjacks at the BHS diamond as Bemidji belted Moorhead 13-0 in the opener and demolished the Spuds 23-0 in the nightcap.
