Jacks reach double digits in victories

Prior to the season Bemidji boys soccer coach Rick Toward looked at his schedule and told his players that he would be very happy if the team posted an 8-8 record.

By design Toward has upgraded the level of competition, playing some of the weaker mandated teams only once, eliminating the weaker non-conference foes and replacing them with teams boasting talent and tradition.

Monday at the middle school field the Lumberjacks gave Toward an appropriate birthday present when they toppled East Grand Forks 1-0 for their 10th win in 15 starts.

Patrick Trummer scored the only goal Monday when he rushed goalie Josh Regorrah and flicked a soft shot over the netminder's head 14 minutes into the game.

The regular season will end Saturday at home against Moorhead and, win or lose that game, BHS will be one of the top two seeds in the Section 8A playoffs.

The win also improved Bemidji's Lakes to Prairie Conference to 8-1. Hillcrest Lutheran Academy is 7-1 and will end its league campaign Thursday at Detroit Lakes.

If HLA wins, as is expected, it will tie Bemidji for the conference title.

The Jacks and Hillcrest split a pair of 2-1 decisions this fall and the next tie-breaker is goal differential against the third-place team. In this case the comparable team is East Grand Forks. BHS defeated the Green Wave 2-1 and 1-0 while HLA owns 2-1 and 4-0 victories and, consequently, the tie-breaker.

"I'm very happy that we reached our main goal Monday, and that was to win the game," Toward said. "But the players are disappointed because we probably needed to win by three or more goals to even things with Hillcrest.

"The players may be disappointed but in no way am I disappointed. This is the third consecutive year that we've reached double figures in victories and that shows just how far our program has come," Toward added.
