For the first time in nearly a year, winter sports in both North Dakota and Minnesota are back in full swing, with Minnesota teams getting games underway on Thursday.
It was a big week for performances across the area. On the ice, Grand Forks Central senior Joey Kennelly went off in back-to-back games. The forward tallied four goals against Davies Friday night, then followed that performance up with another four goals against East Grand Forks. The Knights put up six goals in each game, winning both of them respectively.
Red River's Alex Page was a rock for the Roughriders in a three game stretch. The senior scored a combined 57 points across the trio of contests, including 22 against Davies on Saturday.
An offensive monster broke out at Oak Grove on Friday when the Grovers welcomed in Oakes. The two teams combined for 218 points, going into two overtimes before Oak Grove ultimately won, 110-108. In the game, Noah Swenson reached 1,000 points scored in his Oak Grove career on a three in the 2nd quarter. Just 26 seconds later, Garret Meehl reached the same milestone for the Tornadoes, scoring his 1,000th point on a floater.
Sheyenne boys basketball senior Gage Anderson showed off in all facets of the game against Central. Anderson scored 26 points, handed out 10 assists, and grabbed six rebounds en route to a Sheyenne, 90-44.
