The grassroots Bemidji High School girls wrestling program is seeking continued growth after a successful inaugural season last winter.
Entering Tuesday’s contest at 5-0 – the Lumberjacks’ best start in at least 21 seasons – Bemidji had hopes of matching up with Warroad, the reigning Class A state champions. But the Jacks instead ran into a humming buzzsaw, losing for the first time this season.
The Lumberjacks and Spuds combined for four goals in a span of two minutes and 24 seconds -- with BHS twice bagging a late, go-ahead strike on the road but Moorhead answering back each time.
The Lumberjacks trailed the Sabres by just five points at halftime, staying attached alongside Sartell-St. Stephen’s potent offense. That dangerous group found another gear in the second half, though, and Bemidji ultimately fell 65-45.
