Big rematches set


Mon, Nov 4th, 2013
Posted in All Sports

At the start of the season, Sub-Section 1A-East volleyball and Section 1AA football each had a pair of teams seemingly destined for each other. On the volleyball court, Mabel-Canton and Fillmore Central ended last season with an epic 1A East semifinal affair. Both teams began 2013 ranked in state (M-C #5, FC #10). FC rose as high as #1 (and fluctuated between it and #2) while M-C was a steady top 10 team. Each won their respective conference titles. On the football field, Caledonia and Chatfield entered 2013 as the top two teams in the new SFA Blue Division. A week one collision, with the #1 Warriors coming out on top 19-18, only escalated the plot. The teams finished one (Caledonia, 8-0) and two (Chatfield, 7-1) in conference. The four teams have been working all season towards a collision with each other, battles that are now officially set.

FC and M-C Cruise to Finals

The #2 Falcons and #7 Cougars both progressed dramalessly through their early round opponents. M-C (2-seed, 31-2) hosted Houston (7-seed, 17-11) in the quarters. The ‘Canes went to standout senior OH Abbey Loken early (six first set kills). But a 5-0 M-C run (keyed by a trio of Lydia Geving aces) turned an 8-7 lead into a 13-7 edge. Houston couldn’t recover and fell 25-17. M-C then dominated the next two games (25-11, 25-9) for the 3-0 sweep. Geving (7 kills, 5 aces, 5 digs), Sara Lind (10 kills, 3 aces), Belle Sand (9 kills, 11 digs, 2 aces, 2 blocks), and Carly McCabe (26 assists, 3 aces) were a fearsome foursome. Loken (8 kills, 14 digs) and junior S Alexa Horihan (16 assists) led Houston. The Cougars had 18 aces, Houston none. The ‘Canes finish the season at 18-11.

Fillmore Central (1-seed, 29-2), meanwhile, handled another SEC team, 8-seed Spring Grove (19-10), in straight sets (25-11, 25-11, 25-17) in their quarterfinal. Taylor Case (22 kills, 13 digs, 3 aces) and Morgan Malley (33 assists) led FC. None of that was news. Senior OH Tori Peterson’s return (9 kills) was. Peterson missed a couple weeks per a hip injury. Her return certainly bolsters their attack. They are at full strength again.

In the semis, M-C faced off with 3-seed 11th ranked Goodhue (21-7), led by former Lanesboro volleyball coach Lindsey Mace. The Cougars got a statement from 6’0” senior MH Sara Lind in game one. Lind had a trio of kills, two of the free ball variety, that helped spark a 6-0 M-C run (up 10-6). A 5-0 run shortly thereafter (up 16 .....

Usually, topping ‘100’ in football means going over a hundred yards rushing or receiving. But 100 yards rushing for Lanesboro senior tailback Niko Anderson really isn’t a noteworthy accomplishment. He often does it in one half of a game. In .....
