It will be the only action for the squad this week as BHS won't return to duty until Jan. 8 at Fergus Falls.

Detroit Lakes is 3-8 with its only victories coming at the expense of River Lakes (4-1), Long Prairie (7-3) and Pequot Lakes (7-4). In early December the Lakers played a pair of games at International Falls and dropped both contests 7-0 and 5-2.

BHS fared better against the Broncos as it posted a 5-4 win in International Falls last week.

Allie Heifort made an emergency start in the net that night and the sophomore played well with a 16-save performance.

Coach Matt Menne is hoping that the holiday layoff will not adversely affect the Lumberjacks (4-9-1).

"We've had quite a few days without skating," the coach said, "but we did need that break. Hopefully the time off the ice will help us stay fresh for the rest of the season."

The boys hockey team will have a busier week as the Lumberjacks will play three games in three days at a tournament in Duluth. The schedule begins 5:30 p.m. today when the Jacks (7-0-1) meet Cloquet (5-3).

Also in Bemidji's bracket are Forest Lake (1-3-2) and Andover (3-3) and those teams will clash prior to the Bemidji-Cloquet contest.

The other division includes Duluth Central-Denfeld, Buffalo, Rosemount and New Prague.

The teams will stay within their brackets for the first two rounds. If Bemidji wins today it will play the winner of the Forest Lake-Andover contest on Wednesday. A loss today would drop the Lumberjacks into a game with the Forest Lake-Andover loser.

Thursday's action will include cross-bracket play for seventh, fifth and third places plus the championship.

The unbeaten boys basketball team will open this week's action 6 p.m. today against Chisago Lakes in first-round play of the Chisago Lakes tournament.

Today's other match-up pits St. Paul Highland Park against North St. Paul. Today's winners will meet on Wednesday in the third-place game while the winners will battle for the championship.

Also competing today will be the swimmers and the skiers. Woody Leindecker's swimming and diving squad will be at the Brainerd Invitational while coach Mark Walters will take his skiers to Deer River.
