Headline Story: LAMOURE — To say the LaMoure/Litchville-Marion football season anything but dominant would be selling the Loboes short. The team went 8-0, averaging 57.9 points per game in the process.
Many games looking like a basketball team on the field scoring as many as 76 points, and as few as 34. Three times the Loboes managed to score over 70 points (74 twice, 76 once).
"I've been in this program since my freshman year and just the way we've come on both offense and defense, we've done a lot of great things on offense and defense," said Loboes senior cornerback Charlie Bowman.
MOORHEAD — The top-seeded Moorhead Spuds knocked off No. 5 seed Sartell 3-0 on Tuesday in the Minnesota Class AAA, Section 8 boys soccer semifinals at Jim Gotta Stadium.
Mohamed Namuq struck first to give the Spuds a 1-0 lead that would hold until halftime. Ben Colborn then found the back of the net to give Moorhead a 2-0 advantage.
The Spuds will host No. 2 seed St. Michael-Albertville at 7 p.m. Thursday in the section championship game.
Most fans had already made their way to the exits at Xcel Energy Center. Who could blame them with Wild dead in the water?
Jets center Mark Scheifele had just potted an empty-net goal to put the game away. Or so he thought. Or so everyone in the Twin Cities thought.
Wild coach Dean Evason decided to challenge that the play — why not right? — and the officials ruled that Jets winger Kyle Connor was offside. Less than 20 seconds later, Joel Eriksson Ek unbelievably tied the game with a frantic play in front to send the game into overtime.
In the extra session, Eriksson Ek fittingly played hero, scoring the game-winner to complete his hat trick and lift the Wild to an incredible 6-5 win over the Jets. What a way to welcome fans back into the Xcel Energy Center, eh?
