WINONA -- A late surge by the Bemidji State defense helped the BSU offense offset its early struggles at Winona State.

BEMIDJI -- After a month of competition, the Bemidji State football team finally has a quarterback in Alex Hass. The Beavers, who finished 7-4 last season and won a share of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference North Division title, also have two new linemen, four new wide receivers and a new tight end. If it wasn't evident: Bemidji State's offense will have to get used to the college game quick if it wants to pull off an upset in their season opener at Winona State tonight.
BEMIDJI -- Brian Leonhardt will be playing on the Oakland Raiders practice squad at the start of the new season -- at least for now. The former Bemidji State tight end was released from the Raiders active roster on Aug. 31 -- the final day for teams to make cuts and finalize their active 53-man roster. But the team liked him enough to re-sign him to the seven-man practice squad.
BEMIDJI -- Alex Hass has only started one game in his Bemidji State football career. Given Bemidji State's need for a quarterback following the graduation of Lance Rongstad, that experience, however small, is enough to give Hass the starting job for Thursday's season opener at Winona State. "I want in (to training camp) wanting and expecting to be the starter, so it was a relief to know the hard work paid off and I got it," Hass said Tuesday. "I've been playing here for, this is my fifth year, so I finally get a chance to show what I've got out there."
EAST GRAND FORKS -- The Bemidji High School girls soccer team rallied from a late 1-0 deficit and came back to top East Grand Forks 2-1 Tuesday night. After the Green Wave (4-1) scored early in the second half, the Lumberjacks (2-2) scored in the 62nd minute and the 70th minute and held on for victory. "It was a fantastic game," Bemidji head coach Kellie Schoonover said. "You could feel the intensity of that entire game, especially in the second half. "I can't remember the last time we beat East Grand Forks on their home field, so we're all really excited."

BEMIDJI -- If the Bemidji State soccer team looks like a more cohesive unit when its season begins Friday against Missouri Western State, there's a reason for this: Whitewater rafting. Yes, whitewater rafting. One wouldn't think a rafting excursion would have much to do with soccer but as senior midfielder Alex Pates puts it, the Beavers' recent team trip to Costa Rica was about more than just soccer anyway.
BEMIDJI -- Tom Jenkins of Champlin and James Clark of Plymouth each shot a 1-under 71 to tie for the early lead of the Vandersluis Memorial Golf Tournament's men's championship Saturday at Bemidji Town and Country Club.

Zach Israelson of Staples was third at 72 while Jeff Peltier of Bemidji and Steve Young of LaSalle, Manitoba, rounded out the top five with scores of 1-over 73.
