Fillmore County Sports - Gopher rebuttal leads to win

Good-Knighted

A pair of county teams, coming off successful weekends, took to the court and kept to their winning ways, at the expense of another county squad. First, the LeRoy-Ostrander tournament champion FC Falcons hosted their western neighbor Kingsland. Set one was tied at 20 before four straight attack errors doomed the Knights (25-21 FC). The home Falcons were less obliging in game two. They never trailed, winning 25-14. The third game shone 19-18 FC, following a Regan Zimmer ace, but then the Falcon hitters finished the affair. Three Taylor Case kills, she had 14 for the match, stoked a lead. Alex Peterson's game-high 15th kill sealed the deal, 25-21. The Knights simply couldn't offset that frontcourt production (Lindsay Tart and Jessica Kaster led with 7 & 5 kills). Odd stat of the night; FC led in the category Balls-Stuck-in-the-Rafters 1-0. Forty-eight hours later, Kingsland played host to L-O 3rd place finisher, Rushford-Peterson. The Trojans entered on a nice little six-game streak. Boasting a couple heavy-hitters, Kenzie Lind and Amy Todd, they looked to continue their run. In game one, R-P bolted ahead 4-1, but the Knights led 18-17. A couple of Lind aces helped the Trojans into the lead, for good (25-21). Game two was the Amy Todd show. Her first serving session produced multiple aces and 11 R-P points (a 12-1 lead). It was easy-rolling from there (25-13). Set three was tied 14 apiece when Cody Manfull took a turn at serving. The score was 19-15 when she finished. That run proved the difference in a 25-20 third game (and match) R-P victory. Lind led everyone with 19 kills (plus 14 digs). Todd was second with 9 (plus 5 aces). R-P as a team had 14 aces (to Kingsland's 2). Emily Culhane had 30 assists. Tart (9 kills, 16 digs) was the Knights lead performer. R-P is 4-5, 18-12.

#5, #9, to the Eight-Tenth's

It's that time in the prep football season. Match-ups are becoming big and important. Undefeated state ranked (class A) squads, #5 Southland versus #9 Fillmore Central, perfectly embodied that. For one half, though, there wasn't much to fuss about. The deepest offensive incursion was FC to the Southland 25. It was a ground-based defensive struggle, a slobber knocker. Out of halftime, FC got its air attack going. Andy Todd hit Tyler Eickhoff for 35 yards, and then Mitch Johnson for 32 more, moving the Falcons to the 5-yardline. An Eickhoff run gave FC a 7-0 lead. Flash forward to the 4th quarter. With it still 7-0, things .....

Immovable vs Unstoppable

It took all five sets to decide a victor. It boiled down to a powerful hitter versus a big blocking defense. It was a good ending to the match-up of top Three Rivers volleyball squads Chatfield and Fillmore Central. I .....

It wasn't necessarily an extremely important playin the football game. Given the end score, it wasn't necessarily of consequence period. It was the most memorable. It was perfectly executed. It definitely helped put one nail in Rushford-Peterson's c .....

Deja Vu?

Last year, Lanesboro made it all the way to the 9-man football state title game. The run wasn't without a couple early season bumps though. One came against Mabel-Canton in the season opener. To begin the 2011 season, history seemed .....

On the girl's end of the state equation, the Lanesboro gals can take solace in the fact that sub-sectional and sectional foe/vanquisher Lewiston-Altura was a worthy conqueror. The Cardinals convincingly, as in, by 46 strokes, prevailed as state Clas .....

For the Lanesboro boy's golf team, it was a give-and-take kind of season. They did so with non-conference rival Fillmore Central, finishing behind the Falcons twice early in the season, but besting them three times later in the season (handing them .....
