Boys soccer: Central sweeps at East-West Crossover

JAMESTOWN, N.D. -- Alex Nagel scored three goals and led Grand Forks Central to a pair of wins at the East-West Crossover on Saturday.

Nagel had a pair of goals in a 4-0 Central win over Jamestown and he had the only goal of a 1-0 decision against Mandan.

Kris Scott added a goal and an assist against Jamestown, while Brett Lofthus had two assists. Goalkeeper Sean Cano made a total of five saves in the two games.

"It was nice to start off with two wins, but we have a lot of things to work on as a group," Central coach Mike Wilber said. "We generated some decent opportunities, but we didn't put the ball in the back of the net enough."

Minot beat Red River 3-2 in the first game behind a pair of goals by John Wrona.

"Today was a day for us to try some different players in some different positions that they are maybe not used to," Red River coach Paulo Perez said. "The Minot game was disappointing at the end because we played a little better and then they scored a goal. In the Jamestown game, we played more as a team in the second half."

Jim Whetter also was a big scorer for Red River on Saturday, getting a goal and two assists on the day. Said Mohammed, Derek Schleicher and Nate Hollingworth also had goals for the Roughriders.

Auto racing: Crash ends RRVS races

WEST FARGO, N.D. -- A terrifying crash cut Friday night's races short at Red River Valley Speedway, as a car wiped out four sections of the protective fence on the homestretch.

With five laps to go in the modifieds feature, Jason Grimes tried to pass John Corell on the outside, and the gap between Corell's car and the wall closed in a hurry.

That pushed Grimes car up on the retaining wall, and it spun through the fence and back on the track -- thanks to the support cables in the fence.

"I was driving clean right up alongside of him and then he got into me and that drove me right into the wall," Grimes said. "It just goes to show what this race track can do to you."

No one was injured, and all of the drivers involved walked away from the crash.
