MOORHEAD – Moorhead’s boys hockey team apparently has a thing for scoring in the third period.
MOORHEAD – Moorhead guard Cody Dorow had St. Michael-Albertville exactly where he wanted it.
Dorow had already scored 42 points, but one more was all he needed. With 17.5 seconds left in overtime and the score tied, the ball was in his hands with a chance at the final shot.
MOORHEAD – St. Michael-Albertville’s girls basketball team certainly made the four-hour trip to Nemzek Fieldhouse worth it Saturday, dismantling Moorhead 79-31.
FARGO – Another game, another United States Hockey League defeat for the Fargo Force. The 6-1 loss to Sioux City on Friday at Scheels Arena made it five losses in a row and the seventh loss in the last eight games for the Force, dropping them to a league-worst 5-16-2.
When asked if his win total was at No. 499 a week ago, Bill Gottenborg’s response summed up his coaching career.
MOORHEAD – To call any boys hockey matchup between Moorhead and Roseau a playoff preview is almost downright dishonest. Considering 23 of the last 24 section championships have gone to one of the two schools, it’s more like a playoff guarantee.
MOORHEAD – Moorhead Park Christian point guard Zach Kvalvog has a strict routine at the free-throw line. He spins the ball once, dribbles it once and holds it up to his chin to line himself up with the rim.
MOORHEAD – With Moorhead trailing by one goal, Spuds forward Marissa Herdt fired a wrister with 47.4 seconds left and Micaela Mjoness came back with a slap shot 8 seconds later against St. Cloud goalie Allie Rosenkrans.
Both shots were swallowed up by Rosenkrans, and the Icebreakers held on for a 2-1 win Saturday at Moorhead Sports Center.
MOORHEAD – Buffalo’s Sam Ortmann sank two free throws with 3.9 seconds remaining and Moorhead’s Shane Steckler’s 3-point attempt hit the back of the iron at the buzzer to give the Bison an 82-80 win over Moorhead.
FARGO – There was no conventional defense possible to stop Christian Adams on Thursday. The junior big man buried eight 3-pointers en route to 31 points to lead Fargo Oak Grove to an 80-72 win over Hawley (Minn.) in the home opener for the Grovers.
