BEMIDJI — The Bemidji High School wrestling team was perfect in pool play Saturday to secure fifth place in the Rick Lee Invitational at John S. Glas Fieldhouse. The Lumberjacks secured the top spot in Pool B with wins against Moorhead (48-23), Grand Rapids (48-19) and Badger/Greenbush/Middle River (49-28). “I thought we had a great day,” BHS coach Rance Bahr said. “To go 3-0 in the pool that we were in against some very tough, quality teams, I thought to go 5-1 for the tournament and win the Pool B championship, our kids wrestled really well.”
BEMIDJI — In a battle of the undefeated, the Bemidji High School hockey team’s three third-period goals gave the Lumberjacks a come-from-behind victory over Brainerd on Saturday at the Bemidji Community Arena. “I thought we grinded it out to be honest with you,” BHS coach Wade Chiodo said. “Brainerd did a good job of clogging us up and taking away lanes, and you gotta give them credit. But ultimately we found a way to get the W, and that’s what’s most important.”
BEMIDJI — Freshman forward Maggie Marcotte scored the Jacks’ lone goal in their 4-1 loss to Class A No. 5 Thief River Falls on Friday at the Bemidji Community Arena. “It was one of those tough losses,” BHS head coach Jackie Stoffel said. “We need one of these big wins just to get things rolling. There were parts of the game that we played really well, but there were parts, too, that we need to work on.” The Lumberjacks (4-10) put pressure on the Prowlers (9-4) early in the first period, but TRF had the momentum later in the first and eventually scored at 7:34 of the second
WARROAD -- Three first-period goals were too much for the Lumberjacks to overcome, as Bemidji fell 3-1 to Section 8-A No. 4-ranked Warroad Friday night at the Gardens Arena. Sara Baumann, Madison Oelkers and Brooke Hellquist each scored within ten minutes of the opening faceoff to take a 3-0 lead for the Warriors (9-2).
BEMIDJI — Bemidji State and North Dakota skated to a 0-0 tie and a 2-1 BSU overtime win in a home-and-home series in mid-October. So it wasn’t a surprise when Friday night’s game was decided by just a goal. Only this time it was the No. 9 Fighting Hawks over the No. 5/6 Beavers 1-0, thanks to a power play goal from senior forward Becca Kohler. “Whether it was not having our game legs initially, I don’t know,” BSU coach Jim Scanlan said. “But I thought it was a real good pace, and a very typical game when you play North Dakota.”
BEMIDJI — It took the Bemidji High School boys basketball team until Jan. 23 to earn their third victory last season. This time around the it didn’t take the Lumberjacks as long to get there. The Lumberjacks beat International Falls 74-48 on Tuesday at Bemidji High School, improving to 3-2 in the process. Adjusting after scoring just 12 points in the first half against St. Cloud Cathedral on Saturday, the Jacks jumped ahead to a 9-0 lead in the opening minute of Tuesday night’s game.
BEMIDJI — There is no age limit for athletes in Bemidji. Two senior bowling leagues are currently running at Bemidji Bowl — one on Tuesdays and one on Thursdays. Each league has 18 teams of four bowlers. Dick Robinson, a retired post office counter clerk of 31 years, joined a bowling league in the early 2000s after his wife died. “When I started there, I just stopped down at the bowling alley and there was a bunch from the Senior Center there that were bowling,” he said.
BEMIDJI — The Bemidji High School girls hockey team couldn’t get much of anything going Tuesday night, as Warroad shut them out 5-0 at the Bemidji Community Arena. “We had a good team that we were up against,” BHS assistant coach Casey Reierson said. “They took advantage of the opportunities we gave them, and we could never come back from it.” Danika Huerd, a Warroad junior who played youth hockey in Bemidji, opened the scoring for the Warriors (4-2) just under three minutes into the game.
BEMIDJI — Bemidji State’s two power plays goals weren’t enough to overcome an early two-goal deficit, as the Beavers dropped Friday night’s game to Lake Superior State 3-2. “It was a situation where I thought 5-on-5 we weren’t very good,” BSU head coach Tom Serratore said. “I felt we were making a lot of long passes. I didn’t think we were in a good rhythm.” Gus Correale opened the scoring for the Lakers (3-8-2; 1-2-2 WCHA) halfway through the first period, snapping a shot past BSU goalie Michael Bitzer.
BEMIDJI — The Bemidji High School girls hockey team earned its first victory of the season Thursday night against International Falls, overcoming a two-goal deficit after the first period to win 4-3. “It’s nice to get the win,” BHS head coach Jackie Stoffel said.
