ALEXANDRIA – They needed a minute to warm up, but once they did, the Bemidji High School boys soccer team caught fire.

The Lumberjacks bagged three goals in a 10-minute span on Saturday, a lightning-fast attack that produced a 3-1 win at Alexandria to close the regular season.

After a scoreless 28 minutes to start the match, Jacob Stanoch broke the seal in the 29th minute by scoring off a Charlie Zellmann assist. Seven minutes later, Isaac Stone delivered with a goal of his own for a 2-0 BHS lead.

Jonathan Devescovi had the assist on Stone’s goal, and he got rewarded with a goal of his own just 2:18 later. Brady Riley set him up, and Devescovi finished the flurry for a 3-0 lead.

The Cardinals (8-5-3) scored a consolation goal in the 65th minute, as Otto Anderson spoiled the shutout, but the Bemidji defense held firm from then on out.
