DRAYTON, N.D. -- His golf clubs were in the trunk of his car Monday. That's where they remained as Earl Mallinger was spectator rather than player, riding the course on a cart at the weekly round of the North Valley Seniors League. Age has slowed Mallinger. It hasn't stopped the retired Oslo, Minn., farmer, who was a day shy of his 101st birthday Monday. He's a year-round golfer, spending his winters in Weslaco, Texas.
GF Central Coach : George DuBois. 2017 : 5-11-1, seventh in EDC. Key graduation losses : Nick Dohman, Gavin Westereng, Mason Macias.
Thompson won its second consecutive North Dakota Class B American Legion baseball state championship on Sunday. Thompson capped a 5-0 run in the state tournament by beating Carrington 5-2 in the championship game in Langdon. Tyler Hegg had two of Thompson's six hits in the victory and pitched the first six innings, striking out nine, to get the mound win. Hegg was named most valuable player in the tournament.
When it came to late rallies, Moorhead one-upped East Grand Forks on Friday. East Grand Forks, down 5-1 entering the sixth inning, rallied to a 5-5 tie. But Caden Triggs doubled in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh as the Blues handed East Grand Forks a 6-5 loss in a matchup of the final two unbeatens in the Sub-state 14 American Legion baseball tournament at Stauss Park. "We haven't had a ton of close games all year,'' Blues coach Bryant Bergerson said. "It seems like we've usually won big or gotten our butts kicked. Our kids persevered.
One hit was all it took for East Grand Forks on Thursday. Jake Hjelle broke up a no-hit bid by Alexandria’s Brock Anderson with a double in the fifth inning. That drove in the game-winning run as East Grand Forks beat Alexandria 2-1 in the winners’ bracket second round of the Minnesota Sub-state 14 tournament at Stauss Park.
Ross Corbid has been accustomed to getting a lot of run support when he’s pitching for an East Grand Forks American Legion baseball team that averages 10.3 runs per game. The scoring was harder to come by Wednesday. So Corbid was stingier than usual. The right-hander pitched a complete game four-hitter as East Grand Forks beat Thief River Falls 5-1 in the opening round of the Minnesota Sub-state 14 tournament at Stauss Park.
After earning all-state honors as a defenseman in his senior hockey season at Grand Forks Central High School, Brock Reller had a few opportunities to play junior hockey. Reller opted to play college baseball and has no regrets about his decision. "You always wonder if you could have played college hockey,'' Reller said. "But baseball is my favorite sport. The one thing I miss about hockey is the contact.''
Brock Reller didn't know who held the Grand Forks Royals' career record for home runs, nor what the number was. Today, the record belongs to Reller. He hit two home runs Tuesday as the Royals pulled away to an 18-4 American Legion baseball win at East Grand Forks. The game ended after five innings by the 10-run rule.
MAYVILLE, N.D. -- Over the past two high school football seasons, Jacob Delvo and Anfernee Economy hooked up for more than 2,000 yards passing. This week they're hoping to make one final connection on the football field.
