Billed as a matchup of two teams coming off successful seasons, Goodhue gave early notice that its run to the Class 1A semifinals in 2015 could be backed up again this year. It’s early, but the Wildcats ran away from Kenyon-Wanamingo in the second half on the way to a 33-7 season-opening victory on Friday. Mason Huemann, who had 188 yards on 23 carries, got the first score of the game on a 26-yard run with 5 minutes, 56 left in the first quarter. The Knights responded early in the second quarter when Gavin Roosen hauled in a 21-yard Jake Beulke pass to tie the game at 10:26.

The goal for the Red Wing boys’ soccer team: Stay home. They don’t want a short season. Far from it. After going 2-11-3 in 2015 and missing out on a...

School isn’t set to begin until around Labor Day, but fall sports are done sitting around. On Friday, fall sports officially got to a start as Lake City girls’ tennis at Rochester John Marshall. And things will continue to pick up, starting Monday. Here is what you can look forward to:
In the regular-season finale and in Game 2 of the Section 1B playoffs, the Red Wing Aces could not solve Northfield pitcher Jake Mathison. In the regular season, Mathison kept Red Wing at bay by showing all his pitches early, keeping the Aces guessing. But in Game 2 Thursday at the Red Wing Athletic Field, the Aces waited for Mathison to start throwing his breaking ball or off-speed pitch.
