LUMBERJACK GIRLS & BOYS HOCKEY
GIRLS…Warroad 10, Bemidji 1
The Warriors got the game’s 1st goal, but at 6:43 of the 1st period, the Jacks answered back with Hannah Eller’s goal to even it up. But, the Warriors scored the next 9. Warroad outshot Bemidji 55-15, and Brooklyn DeLap had 45 saves.
BOYS…Bemidji 3, Warroad 0
It was a scoreless 1st period to open the year, and the Jacks scored their 1st goal of the year on a power play goal, as the Warriors took 3 penalties early in the 2nd, with the 2nd and 3rd overlapping giving Bemidji a 5 on 3. In addition, the 3rd one was a 5 minute major for boarding. Ryan Pogue connected on that power play to give Bemidji a 1-0 lead. Late in the 2nd, Hunter Olson stole the puck and scored an unassisted goal, and Zak Justice scored the game’s final goal. Josh Baker, Casey McNamara, Joey Leitner and Tanner Hammitt all had assists. The Jacks outshot the Warriors 28-22. Matt Fitzgerald went 22 of 22 to earn a shutout in the season opener.

LUMBERJACK GIRLS BASKETBALL
Thief River Falls 67, Bemidji 57
The Prowlers were led by Kylea Praska’s 27 points and were able to open up a 19 point 2nd half lead before the Jacks were able to get the deficit down to 10. It didn’t help that junior guard Rumer Flatness left the game early with an injury and didn’t return. No word on the status of the injury at this point. Ali Beard led the Jacks with 14 points, while Klaryssa Flatness added 11.
The Jacks will be back at it next Tuesday when they go to Hibbing for a 7:30 game.
