Chisago Lakes can't stop Bison offensive stampede
The Wildcat football team had executed its game plan while facing the prolific offense of the Buffalo Bison and, despite numerous turnovers and critical penalties, found itself in position to win the game late in the fourth quarter last Friday night.  With the Wildcats trailing 26-20, an electrifying 52-yard run by fullback Sailor Olson gave the Wildcats a first down on the Bison 10-yard line with just over two minutes to go in the game.  The Wildcats were poised to take the lead and leave little or no time for the Bison to come back.  But Olson fumbled on the next play, and the Bison recovered and ran out the clock for a 26-20 win.  The Wildcat players and the large crowd of fans at Chisago Lakes High School went home disappointed.  And it may not be much consolation after a tough loss, but the crowd did get to see a great high school football game.

Vikings still battling to create consistent offense
Princeton 3, North Branch 0
“It just wasn’t a good night,” said Viking girls’ soccer head coach Josh Kopp after the Vikings lost 3-0 to the Princeton Tigers at home Tuesday, September 10.  “We beat Princeton last year.  Maybe our players were distracted by all of the things going on at school.  Maybe we didn’t have enough respect for them.  Whatever the reason, we were not prepared to play a team we should have had a better result against.  We gave up some weak goals, weren’t executing in the attacking third of the field and ended up paying for it.”

Chisago Lakes starts out hot in girls soccer
Chisago Lakes 2, Hermantown 0
The Wildcat girls’ soccer team kicked off their season against the Hermantown Hawks, perennial Class A soccer powerhouse of the north.  The Wildcats came out quick, confident and in control.  They consistently controlled play by making excellent runs and anticipating passes.  In the 34th minute, Estefani Hanson trapped a rebounded shot and made a quick pass across the Hermantown defense to Allison Glenna, who buried the ball in the back of the net to put the Cats up 1-0. In the second half, the Hawks came out looking for the equalizer.  But the Wildcat midfield and defense stood firm.  Wildcat midfielders Claire Meyer, Alison Glenna and Estefani Hanson commanded the field, maintained possession and orchestrated attack after attack.  Hawk goalkeeper Bailey Stokke did a good job defending numerous shots from the Cats.  However, in the 65th minute, Rayna Barrett – returning from a torn ACL last year – scored off of a free kick by Kellie Higgins giving the Wildcats a two-goal cushion.  .  From there the Cats comfortably kept the Hawks at bay for their first win and first shutout.  The game was played at Chisago Lakes High School on Saturday, August 24.

North Branch 3, Chisago Lakes 0
Last season, the Chisago Lakes Bulldogs has a rough regular season, but caught fire in the playoffs and came within one game of making it to the state tournament.  This summer, they also had a rough regular season (5-14).  But North Branch Nighthawk pitcher Jimmy Skroch put out the fire before it could even get started by throwing a no-hitter to lead the Nighthawks to a 3-0 win over the Bulldogs in the opening game of the 2019 Eastern Minny League South playoffs last Thursday, July 25.  Even though the Nighthawks were the home team because they were higher seeded, the game was played at Chisago Lakes since it was a night game and the North Branch field doesn’t have lights.
