**Home Games at Chet Anderson Stadium, BSU
Two years ago, it was a double-overtime golden goal in the state title game. Last year, a free kick in the 71st minute of the section championship. And now, a backbreaker in the 71st minute in the Section 8A semifinals. The Lumberjacks had their chances Wednesday night in Alexandria, but third-seeded Bemidji never found the goal it needed in a 1-0 loss to top-seeded Pelican Rapids in the subsection final.
BHS (5-7-1) graduates nine seniors in Marlondo Smith, Noah Ricci, Josh Wright, Silas Bitter, Justin White, Josh Nyberg, Aidan Spaeth, Ryan Rautio and Dickinson.
The Section 8A semifinal games featuring the Bemidji High School boys and girls soccer teams have been postponed to Wednesday, Oct. 21, due to forecasted snow on Tuesday. Both games will be played in Alexandria.
For the boys, third-seeded BHS (5-6-1) was scheduled to travel to top-seeded Pelican Rapids (9-2) in the North subsection championship, but they'll now kick off at 5 p.m. Wednesday from Alexandria Area High School.
On the girls side, the fourth-seeded Lumberjacks (8-3-2) were already scheduled to travel to second-seeded Alexandria (8-1-3), but kickoff has been pushed back by 24 hours to 7 p.m. Wednesday instead.
Noah Johnson buried a golden goal in double overtime for the Bemidji High School boys soccer team Thursday night, lifting the Lumberjacks to a 1-0 road win over No. 2 seed East Grand Forks. The sudden-death victory propelled No. 3-seeded BHS into the 8A North Subsection final.
Each side stonewalled the other for 94 minutes before Johnson’s goal finally broke the scoreless tie four minutes into the second overtime.
East Grand Forks ends the season at 8-3-1, while Bemidji is now up to 5-6-1
The Lumberjacks will next travel to Pelican Rapids for a shot at the North subsection title. That game is set for Tuesday, Oct. 20, at a time to be determined. The top-seeded Vikings (9-2) topped No. 5 Alexandria 2-1 Thursday. The meeting will be the first of the season between BHS and Pelican Rapids.
