SPORTS SUNDAY - It's been a wild regular season, but the final week has ended. They had to wait until the last game on the calendar, but the third-ranked Sheyenne Mustangs secured their first-ever EDC title with a win over Fargo South 47-7. Nate Goldade eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the campaign in this game. The No. 3 Mahnomen-Waubun football stats tell you just about all you need to know about the tenacious Thunderbirds. They’ve outscored opponents 314-35, and only allowed 269.
EAST GRAND FORKS - Katie Moller stepped onto to pitch Sunday, already a memorable player. When she stepped off of it, she became unforgettable. Her four goals and one assist etched her name in the UND women's soccer record books in UND's 7-1 rout over Purdue Fort Wayne. Moller is now the Fighting Hawks all-time leading goal scorer since UND stepped up to Division I in 2008. That gave her nine points which equals the Summit League record, and is a first in program history.
ULEN - The Titans have completed their most successful regular season since becoming a co-op in 2014. They narrowly defeated Goodridge/Grygla 21-20 in their final game, which saw them win their conference. "This one just felt like it was more important because it was for the perfect record and the district and it's just awesome," says quarterback Tate Maesse. Many returning seniors have played pivotal roles in the team's success. This season, they have a rotating captaincy between the eight seniors which allows all members of the team to grow closer together.
A state soccer showdown at Cushman Field in Grand Forks saw two F-M heavyweights collide on the pitch. The championship game featured the 2016 state title winners, the West Fargo High Packers, and the 2018 EDC winners, the Fargo Davies Eagles. Both faced off in the regular season, and tied both times at 1-1 and 2-2. A winner was decided in the rubbermatch thanks to a Daniel Collins game-winning lob over the keeper, and into an empty net with less than three minutes remaining in the game.
SPORTS SUNDAY - We're counting down the days until the high school football state tournaments, but first, there's still business to take care of. Postseason play is looming in both North Dakota and Minnesota. The plot thickened in the EDC, after Davies handed South it's first conference loss this season, which sets up a mouth-watering regular season finale between Sheyenne and South. The winner of that game will clinch top spot in the east. Both Barnesville and Hawley's seasons have been leading up to their heated encounter.
BRAINERD - The Spuds were hoping to capitalize off of their previous week's victory, and make it two on the season against Brainerd. Moorhead trailed early, and went toe-to-toe for most of the contest. But a second half surge saw the Warriors hand the Spuds their sixth loss of the season, with a scoreline of 21-6. Moorhead is now 1-6, while Brainerd is 4-3.
BRECKENRIDGE - The Cowboys started the season well, but they came into their match against Frazee on a two-game losing streak. They did just that with a 41-12 victory over Frazee. Breckenridge is now 5-2, while Frazee is without a win at 0-7. FERGUS FALLS - The Otters flew into the match against Park Rapids in red-hot form. They've won three straight games, and after going down 6-0, Fergus Falls come back and sneaks by with a 13-12 victory. After starting the season 0-3, Fergus Falls is now 4-3. Park Rapids is now 2-5.
SPORTS SUNDAY - It was the toughest test yet for the MSUM football team this weekend. They played host to No. 1 Minnesota State University Mankato. The Dragons would ultimately come up short, falling 42-20. But Jake Richter gave as a moment to remember. Early in the fourth quarter, quarterback Jakup Sinani finds Richter who, with a little help from an opponent's helmet, and a display of juggling masterclass, he ends up making the unlikeliest of catches.
SPORTS SUNDAY - Redemption was on the menu for the Grand Forks Central boy's tennis team heading into the EDC tournament. The Knights looked to shrug off the "little brother" label and show their crosstown rivals, Red River, that there's more than one tennis powerhouse in Grand Forks. Gary Wu became the Knights first region singles champion since 2008. Fargo South's Max Olson and Geoffrey Youngs earned the boy's tennis doubles championship over Red River.
MOORHEAD, MN - The Moorhead girls soccer team have soared on the pitch this season, making it their best in school history. But they're not done yet as WDAY Sports' Andreas Haffar shows us how this young Spud team looks to leave an even longer-lasting mark for years to come. Moorhead will be back in action on Thursday to start the section tournament.
