Bemidji Girls Soccer Gets First-Ever Goal At State Tournament


FOR YOU AFTER THE BREAK.>>MAKING THE STATE TOURNAMENT IS NOTHING NEW FOR THE BEMIDJI GIRLS SOCCER TEAM. THIS IS THEIR FOURTH TIME THIS DECADE AND THIRD YEAR IN A ROW. BUT THE JACKS HOPED THERE WERE SOME NEW ACCOMPLISHMENTS TONIGHT, AS BEMIDJI LOOKED FOR THEIR FIRST STATE TOURNAMENT GOAL, THEIR FIRST WIN, AS THEY TOOK ON BACK-TO-BACK STATE CHAMPS MAHTOMEDI.>>BEMIDJI ENTERED ON A SEVEN GAME WINNING STREAK. LOOKING TO MAKE IT 2, BUT BEMIDJI MAKES A CLOSE RANGE SAVE TO KEEP IT 1-NOTHING. MAHTOMEDI CONTROLLED PLAY IN THE FIRST HALF. THE SHOT GOES OVER THE GOALIE’S HEAD. THEN IT’S 3-NOTHING. WAGNER IS SCORING ONE OF HER OWN TO MAKE IT A 4-NOTHING GAME AT THE HALF. BEMIDJI WITH A STRONG SECOND HALF AND IN THE 48TH MINUTE, THE TURN IS MADE OFF A PASS AND IT’S BURIED FOR THE GOAL. THEIR FIRST EVER GOAL FOR THE STATE TOURNAMENT. MAHTOMEDI WINS 4-1, THOUGH, A TOUGH OPPONENT FOR SURE BUT HEAD COACH LOGAN LARSEN WAS PROUD HOW THEY CONTINUED TO BATTLE AND FOUND A GOAL.>>WE CAME OUT IN THE GAME A LITTLE BIT RATTLED. DIDN’T PLAY OUR GAME. NORMALLY WE WORK A LITTLE BIT BETTER, A LITTLE MORE COMPOSED ON THE BALL, PASSES, SO WE RECOGNIZED THAT WHEN WE TALKED AT HALF. WE CAME OUT SECOND HALF, PLAYED A MUCH BETTER GAME. IT IS TOUGH TO BE DOWN 4-0 AT HALF AND STILL BATTLE WITH YOUR HEART. I’M SO GLAD THEY DID. WE CAN GET GOALS AT STATE.>>15 SENIORS ENDED THEIR BEMIDJI SOCCER CAREERS TONIGHT, WITH THREE SECTION TITLES UNDER
