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. The Cards set up Mundt. She slammed down game point. In set three, a pair of Mundt aces helped build L-A's lead (to 8-3). Three more later stoked it (to 22-11) to the point she was subbed for mid-serving session! The Knights again made a game of it, pulling to within two (23-21). They fell though, dropping the match 3-0 (10-25, 21-25, and 21-25). Jessica Kaster (3 kills, 5 blocks, 13 digs) and Cheyenne Losey (6 kills, 3 blocks) fought valiantly for the Knights. Emily Schlitter added 15 assists and 7 digs. L-A left with a 13-4 record.

0-3 Coug's Stun 3-0 Larks in OT

In week-three-football, Mabel-Canton fell to #8 Spring Grove 51-6. Week four had then hosting #10 Grand Meadow in what looked to be an equally dubious task. But the evening turned sweet for the Cougars. They shocked the Super Larks. Senior tailback Gabe Lind began the scoring, scampering 28-yards to give M-C an early lead. Backfield mate Jesse Amdahl extended the lead (to 14-0) just before the half with a 15-yard jaunt of his own. In the second half, the Larks rallied. They got a third quarter score to pull within seven (14-7). Then, with time waning in the 4th quarter, they got a 2-yard Landon Jacobson run (and PAT), sending the contest to an extra period. There, the Cougars defense first held the Larks, and then, the man who started it all, Lind, ended it all. His 7-yard jaunt gave M-C the victory (20-14), there first, on homecoming no less.

Kicker-Extraordinaire

Fillmore Central kicker Ryan Mayer played a whale of a game against Wabasha-Kellogg. He didn't miss a PAT attempt, going 9 for 9. He was seen late icing his right big toe on the sideline. And oh yeah, Fillmore Central scored nine touchdowns. They routed the Falcons-North 63-6! And though Mayer scored enough points to beat W-K alone, FC got other contributions. Mitch Johnson had three first quarter interceptions (including a 37-yard TD return). The Falcons got three TD runs from Tyler Eickhoff (1, 53, & 40 yards), and one apiece from Zach Olstad (4 yards) and Monty Holm (45 yards). Andy Todd threw three TD passes, to Eickhoff (33 yards), Ryan Baker (23 yards), and offensive lineman Logan Whitehill (via WR Johnson) on a 46-yard hook and ladder hook-up. The stat of the night, though, was, after one quarter of action, W-K had run 14 plays for -7 yards while tossing four INT's. FC is 4-0.
