Bemidji took Moorhead, last season’s top seed in Section 8AA, to overtime in a 4-3 road loss on Tuesday. The adrenaline of that game wore off in the interim, though, and the Jacks struggled to bring the same quality of performance to the table on Thursday.
Over the course of the evening, the BHS boys topped St. Cloud Tech 42-21, Moorhead 39-21 and Buffalo 59-14. The Lumberjack girls also prevailed by a 36-21 margin over Moorhead.
