HIBBING — Alex Schussman had three assists as the Bemidji boys soccer team overcame a slow start to topple Hibbing 4-1. The Lumberjacks (3-4-2) led 1-0 at halftime but according...
ST. CLOUD -- The Bemidji High School boys soccer team always has trouble against St. Cloud Cathedral. On Tuesday night the Lumberjacks hung with the Crusaders but gave up a few key goals that led to a 3-1 loss to their section nemesis. "We played pretty well for most of the game," BHS head coach Rick Toward said. "We limited their chances and used the gameplan we had planned on using. "But we had a few breakdowns and couldn't recover."
BEMIDJI -- Bemidji State football fans who don't plan on following the Beavers to Sioux Falls, S.D., this weekend to play Augustana have another option -- the comfort of their own homes.

BEMIDJI — The Bemidji State defense had come up many times to get big stops in BSU’s home opener against Concordia-St. Paul. But it was two key drives that the...
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State football team doesn't want a repeat of last Thursday's season opener against Winona State. In that game the Beavers needed to score 31 unanswered points to knock off the Warriors 31-27 in overtime. For tonight's home opener against Concordia-St. Paul, Bemidji State head coach Jeff Tesch would prefer to play from ahead and not from behind. "We're going to have to play a lot better if we want to win more games," Tesch said. "We can't get that far behind and expect to win. But I liked how we got better as the game went in Winona."
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State football team was down by three touchdowns with under a quarter -- 11 minutes, exactly -- left to play. Game over, right? Not so fast. The Beavers forced two turnovers for touchdowns -- an interception and a fumble recovery -- then scored with 31 seconds left in regulation to tie the game before eventually winning in overtime, 34-27. The quarterback for that fateful fourth quarter was redshirt freshman Ryan Shields, who had come in as a backup to senior Alex Hass.
LITTLE FALLS -- The Bemidji High School girls and boys cross country teams each finished in the top five of their respective races at the Little Falls. The Lumberjacks boys team took second out of 19 teams and the girls team took fifth out of 18 Thursday afternoon. The boys team scored 107 points to Perham's 57 to notch second place. Bemidji's Sam Carlson took second overall in the race with a time of 16 minutes, 5 seconds.
BEMIDJI -- In Bemidji State's season opener last Friday against Missouri Western, the Beavers showed off their depth in a 2-0 win. In that game, BSU saw a game-winning goal from a defender and a goal and an assist from two freshmen to come away with a victory. If Wednesday's Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference opener against Minnesota Crookston is any indication, BSU's depth from upperclassmen to freshman will pay off big time this year.
BEMIDJI -- When Maea Wall and Rachel Bitter are locked in, the Bemidji Lumberjacks are tough to stop. The Walker-Hackensack-Ackley/Cass Lake-Bena Wolves found that out the hard way Tuesday evening at the Bemidji Middle School soccer field. Wall scored four times and Bitter had four assists -- including two Bitter-to-Wall scores -- as the Lumberjacks eased their way past the Wolves 7-0. "They were really working together well today," BHS head coach Kelly Schoonover said. "Rachel was just spot on for all of her assists tonight."
DETROIT LAKES -- The Bemidji High School girls tennis team improved its record to 7-1 in dual meets with a sweep of East Grand Forks and Detroit Lakes Tuesday afternoon. "I thought we played some of our best tennis today," Lumberjacks head coach Mark Fodness said. "Our doubles teams especially really moved well and controlled play on the courts throughout the day. This was a big step for us. If we can keep up our aggressive play at the net it will really pay off in some of our close matches."
