SATURDAY - MAY 10, 2008



The Crookston Pirate boy's golf team finished the Fargo North (N.D.) two day Invitational Meet at Edgewood Golf Course with a 479 two-day total, after shooting 161 on the weather-shortened second day. Today's results were based on nine holes, although some competitors went beyond nine before wind chills of 26 degrees and snow showers caused organizers to shorten today's round of play. Pirate Seth Heppner tied for sixth overall, adding 39 to yesterday's 74, for 113, to lead Crookston to an eighth place team finish, one better than where they were at the end of Friday's play. Fergus Falls won the Tournament with 452, on a tie-breaker with Moorhead; Fargo South took third with 454. Fergus was led by Medalist Mike Tuel, who shot 104, followed by Moorhead's Nick Olsgaurd with 107, and Shanley's Pat Thomas with 110. There were ties at 111 for fourth individual, and at 113 for sixth (including Crookston's Seth Heppner).

According to Pirate Coach Steve Koefed, it was a tough day weather-wise, but the Pirates rose above it for a good finish. He went on to say that it was "nice to see Seth (Heppner) finish in the top ten again. He reached that level a few times by this point in last year's season, and it's good to see him back on that track."

FRIDAY - MAY 9, 2008


Red Lake County had two six runs innings, including six in the bottom of the sixth that ended the game, as the Rebels defeated the visiting Crookston Pirates 18-8 in a game called because of the 10 run rule. 
Crookston scored first when Brady Langlois walked, stole second and scored on Isaac Edlund's single and Ben Curran scored when Matt Grove drew a bases loaded walk.  Red Lake County answered with two runs in the first on a Corey Cardinal double that brought both runs in.
Crookston regained the lead in the second when Langlois led off with another single and scored on an Ethan Hulst single.
Red Lake County would get the bats going in the last three innings, scoring four in the third to take a 6-3 lead when Cardinal had another rbi double, while Pat Johanneck and Luke Olsen had rbi's. The Rebels scored six more in the fourth inning on five straight hits, including a Corey Schmitz double and in fact, Red Lake County was leading 12-3 and had the potential to push to a 10 run lead, but stranded a runner at second.  The Pirates were not just thinking of playing a full game, but they started a nice rally with two runs in the fifth, when Chris Follette singled, Edlund walked and Matt Grove doubled in Follette, while Edlund scored on a wild pitch. Crookston added three more, as Langlois with his third hit, a double and scored on a error, Ethan Hulst drove a run in with a bases loaded walk and Edlund had an rbi single to pull Crookston within 12-8 and runners on second and third, but Steve Morinville, Red Lake County pitcher struck out two to get out of the inning. "We stranded a lot of runners today and couldn't get the real big hit when we needed it," said Crookston head coach Brian Follette, "but that has been the story of our season really." Red Lake County banged out 14 hits in the game, nine off the Pirate starter, Dillon Nelson, getting his first varsity start. "I thought Dillon pitched very well," said Follette, "but we struggled with the strike zone and didn't adjust to how it was being called." Red Lake County played a lot of baseball today, as this was their second game, as the Rebels had beaten Norman County East 9-1 just preceding the Crookston game. "I thought we seen the ball well tonight," said Red Lake County head coach, Chris Nelson, "We are starting to come around a bit at the plate, which is good at this time of year."
Crookston is now 3-7 on the year and have lost five in a row.  Crookston will be at Warroad on Tuesday.
Red Lake County with the pair of the wins improves to 9-3.
