Mckenzie Whalen was the neutralizer Tuesday. In a matchup of two top 10-ranked girls high school hockey teams in Minnesota, No. 2 Warroad had a 50-26 advantage in shots on goal against No. 5 East Grand Forks Senior High. But Whalen registered 47 saves as the teams skated to a 3-3 tie at East Grand Forks Civic Center. "I think (Whalen) was the difference,'' Warroad coach David Marvin said. Green Wave coach Jim Enright is accustomed to seeing Whalen dominate games.
FARGO -- LaMoure-Litchville/Marion on Saturday became the first program to win three consecutive state championships in the history of North Dakota Class B high school volleyball.

FARGO -- Strong finishes lifted Thompson to a 3-0 sweep of Bismarck Shiloh Christian on Thursday in the quarterfinal round of the North Dakota Class B high school volleyball tournament. The third-seeded Tommies won 25-23, 25-20, 25-21 at the Fargodome. They trailed 18-13 in the final set before closing on a 12-3 run. In the first set, Shiloh Christian rallied from a 23-20 deficit to pull even at 23, only to see Thompson score the last two points to win that set.
FARGO -- Langdon-Edmore-Munich swept Watford City 25-14, 25-19, 25-17 on Thursday in the opening quarterfinal match of the North Dakota Class B high school volleyball tournament. Callie Ronningen had 17 kills and Jordyn Worley had a double double with 10 kills and 15 digs to pace Langdon-Edmore-Munich's offense. Tia McGorman's eight kills led Watford City. Langdon-Ed.-Mun.
FARGO—The high-caliber passing game Langdon-Edmore-Munich brought to the Fargodome was a different look for Hillsboro-Central Valley's stingy defense. "We expected a different kind of team than we've faced all year,'' Burros senior defensive lineman Jack Camrud said. "They throw the ball more. But our defensive line got after it and made it tough for them, and our defensive backs covered pretty well. I think 14 points (allowed) is pretty good.''
FARGO—The offenses were rolling for Kittson County Central and Stephen-Argyle here Thursday. The teams combined for more than 650 yards in total offense. Despite all that yardage, it was two defensive plays that sparked Stephen-Argyle to a 36-19 win in the Minnesota Section 8 9-man high school football championship game. The 10-1 Storm, repeating as section champion, advances into next Friday's Minnesota state quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. in Bemidji against a yet-to-be-determined opponent. Kittson County Central closed with a 5-6 record.
DEVILS LAKE—Joey Hornstein doesn't see a lot of flash in his football game. "I'm a first-down runner,'' the Devils Lake High School senior said. "Ten yards, 10 yards, 10 yards—I just keep going and try to move the chains. I'm more of a physical runner. I like hitting. That gets me fired up.''
The spark Ivy Edwards needed was a close score. The sophomore had three kills and three service aces as Sacred Heart jumped to a 10-2 lead in the third set. Sacred Heart went on for a win and a 25-20, 27-25, 25-8 sweep of visiting Red Lake Falls on Friday in the first round of the Minnesota Section 8A high school volleyball tournament. Sacred Heart, the top seed in the West subsection, had to rally from a 23-21 deficit to win the second set. And that close score set off Edwards.

Kaleb Johnson was in the right place on the wrong play. The junior scored on a 5-yard pass with 3:03 remaining Wednesday night. Lucas Kanta kicked the extra point and that gave Grand Forks Central a 28-27 comeback high school football win against Fargo North at Cushman Field.
