At 7 p.m. tonight at Chet Anderson Stadium, the Lumberjacks host Brainerd (6-3), the team they topped 12-7 in week five on Oct. 6.
BEMIDJI -- With each of its last two wins, the Bemidji High School boys soccer team has made history.

MINNEAPOLIS -- After a defensive stalemate throughout the entire first half of Tuesday’s Class A state semifinal game between unseeded Bemidji and No. 2 Academy of Holy Angels, the final 40 minutes were anything but that.

BEMIDJI -- For the first time this season, Troy Hendricks won’t be able to watch his son, James, in Bison green and gold this afternoon. As James is playing defense for North Dakota State, Troy has a game of his own, coaching the Section 8-5A semifinals as the Bemidji High School football team hosts Moorhead. “I don’t miss them, other than if we play on a Saturday,” coach Hendricks said. “That’s the downfall of the Tuesday-Saturday scenario. There’s nothing I can do about it (Saturday).”
