BEMIDJI, Minn. (UND) – In its first road test of the season, No. 7 North Dakota used a pair of goals from Grand Forks products to improve to 3-0 on the season with a hard-fought 4-3 victory over No. 20 Bemidji State at the Sanford Center. Freshman wing Jackson Kunz scored his first-career goal and junior wing Judd Caufield netted what proved to be the game winner as the two products of Grand Forks youth and prep hockey came up big for the Fighting Hawks. Senior goalie Zach Driscoll, who played for the Beavers for three seasons before transferring to UND this season, played through some heckling from BSU fans and stopped 30 of the 33 shots he faced in a strong performance to best his old team.
MINOT, ND – The Minot State football team (0-6 overall, 0-2 NSIC North Division) is on the road today in Aberdeen, South Dakota to play Northern State (4-2 overall, 0-1 NSIC North Division). Kickoff at 6 pm.
One week after the North Dakota State football team won its own homecoming game, the third-ranked Bison (5-0, 2-0 MVFC) have a chance to spoil the party for Illinois State (2-3, 0-2 MVFC) as the homecoming guest today at Hancock Stadium in Normal, Ill. Game time is 2 pm.
No. 22 North Dakota hits the road for the second straight week and will battle a top-5 program for the second time over its last three games with a showdown against No. 4 Southern Illinois at 2 pm from Carbondale, Ill.
HOUSTON (AP) – Jose Altuve did a nice job atoning for a run-scoring error as the Houston Astros took Game 1 of the AL Championship Game against the Boston Red Sox. Altuve crushed a game-tying, two-run homer in the sixth inning before Carlos Correa’s blast put the Astros ahead to stay in a 5-4 win over the Red Sox. Altuve also lifted a sacrifice fly that gave Houston a 5-3 edge heading into the ninth. The insurance run came in handing after Kike Hernandez smacked his second home run of the night and fourth hit. Altuve’s miscue contributed to a three-run third that put the Red Sox ahead. He also became the fourth player in major league history with 20 career postseason home runs.
Neither starting pitcher got out of the third inning. Boston’s Chris Sale was lifted with two out in the third. Framber Valdez was chased in the third. Ryne Stanek retired one batter in the seventh to pick up the win. Ryan Pressly notched the save and Hansel Robles took the loss. Game 2 is today in Houston.
Astros ace Lance McCullers Jr. has been left off the team’s ALCS roster. The right-hander left Game 4 of Houston’s win at Chicago this week after four innings because of forearm tightness.
ATLANTA (AP) – Los Angeles Dodgers ace right-hander Max Scherzer is expected to start Game 1 of the NL Championship Series against the Braves in Atlanta. Scherzer would be starting two days after earning his first career save in the Dodgers’ 2-1, series-clinching win over the Giants. Scherzer is expected to face Braves left-hander Max Fried today. Los Angeles beat Atlanta in seven games in last year’s NLCS before winning the World Series.
UNDATED (AP) – Ninth-ranked Oregon went the distance before avoiding a major upset. Anthony Brown scored on an 11-yard keeper with 4:50 left to give the Ducks a 24-17 win over a surprisingly tenacious California. The Golden Bears took a 17-10 lead early in the final quarter, but Brown answered with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jaylon Redd to tie it. The Golden Bears got to the Oregon 3 until Chase Garbers fourth-and-2 pass attempt with just two seconds left fell incomplete. Travis Dye ran for 145 yards and a score for Oregon.
In the other Top-25 game of the night:
– Backup quarterback Lucas Johnson threw a 14-yard TD pass to Jesse Matthews for the first touchdown of the game on the opening possession of overtime and No. 24 San Diego State held off San Jose State 13-6
UNDATED (AP) – Jack Hughes bailed out the New Jersey Devils after they blew a late two-goal lead. Hughes capped his two-goal performance by scoring less than a minute into overtime, completing the Devils’ 4-3 win over the Blackhawks. Dougie Hamilton scored on his first shot as a Devil and Andreas Johnsson gave his team a 3-1 lead early in the third period. But the Hawks gained a point when Dominik Kubalik (koo-BAH’-leek) and Kirby Dach tallied in the final 3:53 of regulation.
The Canucks also squandered a two-goal lead in the third period before beating the Flyers, 5-4. Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller scored in a shootout after Vancouver put together a four-goal second period to take a 4-2 lead. Travis Konecny (kah-NEHK’-nee) and Claude Giroux scored over the final 2:17 of regulation in the Flyers’ season opener.
In the NHL’s other game on Friday, Marcus Foligno scored with 7.2 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Wild a 2-1 win over the Ducks. Kevin Fiala had a power-play goal and Cam Talbot made 28 saves for Minnesota. Jakob Silfverberg scored on the power play for the Ducks, and Anthony Stolarz made 41 saves.
CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs have hired Carter Hawkins as general manager, dipping into Cleveland’s front office in an effort to bolster their own player development system. The 37-year-old Hawkins spent 14 seasons with Cleveland, including the last five as an assistant general manager. He also supervised the team’s player development department.
UNDATED (AP) – The Cleveland Browns will be without their top running back on Sunday against Arizona, while the Cardinals will play without their head coach. Kliff Kingsbury, quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive tackle Zach Allen are sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19. Kingsbury has said earlier this week that the team has been 100% vaccinated for quite a while, but that hasn’t stopped the virus from upending their plans to win a sixth straight game. Browns running back Nick Chubb will miss the game, but wide receiver Jarvis Landry could return to action. Chubb is second in the NFL with 523 yards rushing. He didn’t practice all week because of a calf injury. Landry was on the practice field Friday for the first time since suffering a sprained knee against Houston on Sept. 19.
In other NFL news:
– The Seahawks have placed quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Chris Carson on injured reserve, keeping both players out until at least mid-November. Wilson is recovering from surgery on his right middle finger. Carson is dealing with a neck issue.
– Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been cleared to play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Jones was a full participant in practice on Friday, the next-to-last step in the NFL concussion protocol. He was cleared after being examined by an independent neurological consultant after Friday’s workout.
– Arizona has acquired tight end Zach Ertz from the Eagles. The undefeated Cardinals sent cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round pick to the Eagles for the 30-year-old Ertz, a three-time Pro Bowler. Arizona lost starting tight end Maxx Williams to a season-ending knee injury Sunday against San Francisco.
– Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey will miss his third straight game Sunday against Minnesota because of a hamstring injury. McCaffrey was held out of practice for a second consecutive day and is listed as out for the game.
– The Titans will have Pro Bowl receivers Julio Jones and A.J. Brown Monday night against the Bills. The duo started the first three games before Brown hurt a hamstring early in a win over Indianapolis. Jones had a hamstring tighten up later in the same game and has missed two games.
– Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is set to start Sunday against the Jaguars in London. Tagovailoa missed most of the last four games with fractured ribs.
– The Broncos are celebrating Mike Shanahan’s coaching contributions during their alumni weekend by inducting him into the team’s Ring of Fame at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Raiders. Shanahan won back-to-back Super Bowls in the late 1990s and is the franchise leader with 146 coaching victories, including eight playoff wins. The Broncos are also saluting Hall of Famer Steve Atwater in a pregame ceremony.
UNDATED (AP) – The Boston Bruins have signed Charlie McAvoy to an eight-year, $76 million contract extension. The 23-year-old McAvoy was fifth in Norris Trophy voting last year after recording five goals, 30 points and a plus-22 in 51 games. The 2016 first-round draft pick is plus-80 in his career – second among all NHL defenseman since he entered the league in 2017.
Elsewhere around the NHL:
– The league has suspended Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin for a game for roughing Tampa Bay forward Mathieu Joseph. The NHL says Larkin was suspended for retaliating to Joseph’s hit from behind with a punch in the face when the opponent was not suspecting it. Larkin will miss Saturday’s game against the Canucks.
UNDATED (AP) – Bucks general manager Jon Horst has signed a multi-year contract extension after helping Milwaukee win its first NBA title in a half-century. The move comes less than two months after the Bucks signed coach Mike Budenholzer to an extension. Milwaukee won the NBA Finals over the Phoenix Suns in six games to win its first league championship since 1971. Horst has worked as Milwaukee’s general manager since 2017. His notable moves have included the hiring of Budenholzer in 2018 and the acquisition of guard Jrue Holiday last year.
In other NBA news:
– Players can now test themselves for the coronavirus and get results in no more than 20 minutes. The NBA has partnered with a company that is providing the league with technology that allows anyone to essentially test themselves for COVID-19. A person applies the swab to the inside of their nose, places it in a reader connected wirelessly to their smartphone and gets the results back much faster than most other alternatives can deliver.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – NASCAR has ordered a cease-fire in the feud between Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick, warning of severe consequences if the two drivers continue to tangle on the track. The demand to stop the shenanigans comes as Elliott moves on to the third round of the playoffs, still eligible to win a second consecutive Cup title. Harvick crashed himself out of title contention last week as he evaded Elliott on his rear bumper at Charlotte. Elliott took glee in Harvick’s gaffe and wished him “a merry offseason and Happy Christmas,” and Elliott is now selling merchandise branded with that zinger.
