GIRLS SOCCER: Jacks shut out Detroit Lakes

BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School girls soccer team hosted Detroit Lakes in a home contest Thursday evening and shut the Lakers out 2-0.

“I think we achieved what we set out to achieve,” BHS head coach Logan Larsen said. “Our attack was more diverse. The timing of our runs were better. We weren’t so one-dimensional. Certainly there’s areas to improve, which is good to learn.”

Both Bemidji goals came in the first half, including an early one from Lindsey Hildenbrand in the sixth minute, assisted by Alyse Stone.

Emma Dean then gave the Jacks (3-0) an insurance goal in the 33rd minute, chipping a shot over the DL keeper for the 2-0 lead. Harper Toward earned an assist on the play.

After a scoreless second half, the Jacks remain undefeated, outscoring opponents 17-1 through three games.

“We were happy with what we had been working on, and Detroit Lakes did a good job of showing us what we can do further,” Larsen said. “And their keeper did a very good job.”

Bemidji returns to action at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, when they host East Grand Forks for a rematch of last season’s Section 8A title game, which the Jacks won 2-1 in overtime.
