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. In set one, the Gophers turned an 11-11 tie into a 21-15 lead only for the Falcons to tie it at 21. Team maroon and white then won 4 of 5 points to prevail 25-22. Set two was similar, only opposite. FC turned a 10-10 tie into a 17-12 advantage, only for the Goph's to chip away (within one at 23-22), but come up short (25-23). Led by Erin Kammer, the third stanza was all Gophers. They never trailed enroot to a 25-21 victory. Backs against the wall in set #4, the Falcons flirted with a 3-1-match loss. Their first lead was 2-1, their second 23-22! A point later, senior Alex Peterson emphatically spiked the ball off three things, a Gopher, the ceiling, and the ground for game point (25-22)! In the deciding set, it looked as if Peterson would single-handedly lead her Falcons to victory. FC's first five points were her hitting handiwork. They built an 8-4 lead. The Gophers charged back though, tied the contest at ten, and then inched ahead 15-14 (carried by Kammer). FC, however, at the most critical point of the match, got Peterson to her spot. Three times, she was set up for game tying kills. Three times Chatfield's defense blocked and dug strong. The final time, they set up their own heavy hitter, Kenna Moechnig. She spiked down game (16-14) and match (3-2) point. Peterson led everyone with 20 kills. Taylor Case added 14 with 13 digs. Morgan Malley was lead FC assistor with 37. Moechnig (16 kills, 7 blocks), Kammer (14 kills), Gabrielle Salisbury (21 assists), and Alex Duxbury (29 digs and 6 aces) led the Gophers.

Mundt Point

The phrase applies three ways. All relate to 6'0" Lewiston-Altura senior hitter Jenny Mundt and her bearing on the VB contest between her Cards and Kingsland. First, the outcome of the match was a Mundt (mute) point (a silent or unspoken one). L-A had it all the way. They did so cause of all the points Ms. Mundt scored attacking (13 kills), blocking (5.5 aces), and serving (5 aces). Thirdly, Mundt authored a couple of exclamation points. The first came in game two. With the score 18-13, she took a seat on the bench. The Knights offense non-coincidentally picked up. They pulled within two a couple of times, but still trailed 24-21 when Mundt reentered the game. The Knights served .....

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 .....

Summer may still be in bloom, but all the spiking and setting in the gyms, cracking and crunching on the fields, make it abundantly clear autumn is on the horizon. With that naturally come fall sports, with the gals getting things started first.

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 .....
