Wildcats to play for section title after upending top-seeded Cloquet
With the Wildcats leading 14-0 midway through the fourth quarter in last Saturday’s section 7AAAA semifinal game at Cloquet, the Lumberjacks were on the brink of scoring a touchdown that would have cut the lead in half.  But on second and goal from the three, sophomore Max Pullis created a fumble and recovered it at the four to stop the Lumberjack drive dead in its tracks.  The Wildcats then went on an 11-play drive that ran out the clock to win the game 14-0 and advance to tomorrow night’s section championship game against the Hermantown Hawks at 7 p.m. at North Branch High School.  The Hawks defeated the North Branch Vikings 21-14 in the other semifinal to advance to the championship game.

Area soccer teams wrap up regular season, postseason awaits
Chisago Lakes Girls
In what was to be their final regular season game, the Wildcats (14-0-1) didn't exactly know what to expect from the 22nd-ranked Minnehaha Academy Redhawks (7-3-3) coming into the match at Chisago Lakes High School on Thursday, October 3. The Redhawks had tied fifth-ranked Breck and lost to 20th-ranked Blake by just one goal.  But the Wildcats were on point from the start.  Nine minutes into the match, Riann Daas found Estefani Hanson, who shot the ball into the lower corner for the first Wildcat goal.  Midway through the half, Allison Glenna found Daas for the Wildcats' second goal.  And with eight minutes left in the half, Madison Kubalek sent a one-touch pass to Daas for the Wildcats' third goal and a 3-0 halftime lead.  Early in the second half, Minnehaha Academy scored to make it 3-1.  The score stayed that way until the 81st minute, when Kellie Higgins sent a corner in to the box and Avery Constant blasted it home to give the Wildcats a more comfortable cushion at 4-1.  Daas – who finished with two goals and two assists –  sent a beautiful feed across the box to a wide-open Rayna Barrett for the finish.  Finally, Hanson dropped a ball back to Kellie Higgins, who bent it in for a goal to make the final score Chisago Lakes 6, Minnehaha Academy 1.

Wildcats squeeze by Vikes
Chisago Lakes Wildcat senior Jamie Mower scored the only goal of the game 15 minutes into the first half, and the Wildcats managed to make it hold up against a determined North Branch Viking team for a 1-0 win.  The game was played last Thursday, September 26 at North Branch High School.
Mower’s goal came as part of a give and go with Braydon Byrds down the middle of the field.  Mower ended up with a breakaway and shot the ball into the lower right-hand corner of the net to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead.  The Vikings controlled play much of the rest of the half, but the Wildcats had the best scoring opportunities.  In the 29th minute, the Wildcats played a high through ball that looked like it would result in a breakaway.  But 6’6” Viking defender Mason Maroschek leaped into the air and headed it back down the field the other way to thwart that opportunity.  The Wildcats also hit the crossbar with about five minutes to go in the half.
