BIG LAKE -- A two-out, two-strike rally in the bottom of the seventh helped the Bemidji softball team in the first of two playoff games played Wednesday at Big Lake, but the Lumberjacks ran out of gas in the second game. The Lumberjacks came back to defeat Monticello 5-4, walking off in eight innings in the first of two Section 8-3A playoff games Wednesday. BHS couldn't carry that momentum over to the second game. Alexandria defeated Bemidji 11-1, ending BHS's season. "We just ran out of gas," BHS head coach Brad Takkunen said.

BEMIDJI -- Seth Anderson wasn't overpowering Friday, but he got the job done for the Bemidji baseball team. Working quickly, the junior hurler didn't need to strike a ton of Hibbing batters out. Instead, he forced the Bluejackets to put the ball in play early and often. That added up to a 5-3 Bemidji win at the BSU baseball diamond. "He worked quickly, threw strikes and kept our defense busy," BHS head coach Mike Fogelson said of his starter. "He's been consistent for us all season. He's establishing himself as our solid No.
