MANKATO, Minn. (MSU) – When these two teams met last month they played to a scoreless draw. This time, there will be no tie – and the stakes are far greater. The Minot State women’s soccer team takes on NSIC regular-season champion Minnesota State, Mankato in the semifinals of the NSIC Tournament today at 2 pm. The winner plays Sunday for the NSIC title and an automatic berth to the NCAA Division II National Tournament. The Beavers have not allowed a goal in nine matches, dating back to September 30th.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Martin Jones stopped 22 shots for his first shutout in 55 games, Alex Wennberg scored twice and the Seattle Kraken beat the Minnesota Wild 4-0 on Thursday night. Morgan Geekie and Jamie Oleksiak also scored for Seattle, winners of three straight and four of five in its second NHL season. Seattle has scored at least three goals in eight consecutive games. Despite leaving plenty of juicy rebounds, Jones kept Minnesota off the scoreboard for his first shutout since April 2, 2021. His best saves were stuffing Joel Eriksson Ek from point-blank range on a rebound late in the second and thwarting Mason Shaw’s attempt just outside the blue paint in the final minute of the period. Jones said his mindset is to stay in the moment, but he knew those stops were critical. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 19 shots for Minnesota, which had won four of five. Minnesota skated 11 forwards and seven defensemen because four wingers remain out with upper-body injuries. Jordan Greenway has resumed skating and could return for next week’s West Coast trip. No updates were provided on Brandon Duhaime, Marcus Foligno and Ryan Hartman.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx signed coach Cheryl Reeve to a multi-year contract extension Thursday and elevated her front office title from general manager to president of basketball operations. The length of the new deal was not disclosed. “Cheryl’s impactful leadership on and off the court has guided the Lynx for more than a decade, and I’m thrilled that she is returning and additionally taking on new responsibilities,” Lynx owner Glen Taylor said in a statement. “Cheryl’s devotion to growing the game and our league is extraordinary, and we have some exciting seasons ahead of us.”
Reeve, who has served as general manager for the last five years, has logged 13 seasons as coach of the Lynx for the longest tenure in league history. She has three WNBA Coach of the Year awards, most recently in 2020. She was also the WNBA Basketball Executive of the Year in 2019. With 281 regular season wins and 41 playoff game wins, Reeve has the all-time league lead in both categories. The Lynx have won four WNBA championships under her watch, the last in 2017. Reeve is also currently serving as coach of the U.S. women’s national team. The Americans won a gold medal earlier this fall in the basketball World Cup and secured a bid to the 2024 Paris Olympics.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Justin Verlander overcame an early jolt to grit out the World Series win that long eluded him, rookie Jeremy Peña hit a go-ahead home run and the Houston Astros beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 to head home with a 3-2 lead. Buoyed by late defensive gems from Trey Mancini and Chas McCormick, the Astros moved to the brink of their second championship — the other was a scandal-tainted title in 2017. Houston went ahead just four pitches in against Noah Syndergaard on Peña’s run-scoring single. Then Philly’s Kyle Schwarber homered leading off the bottom half, harkening to the five-run lead Verlander wasted in Houston’s opening 6-5, 10-inning loss.
