Bemidji rolled past No. 1-ranked Mankato West 45-26 Friday afternoon in the semifinals of the Minnesota Class 4A high school football playoffs at the Metrodome.

The Lumberjacks fell behind 14-0 before getting the ball for the first time on offense, but from that point on in was all Bemidji.

The Jacks will face the winner of today's Hill-Murray vs. Rocori game in the Prep Bowl state championship game at the Metrodome Nov. 26.

Come back later for details on Friday's game.
