MINOT, ND – The Minot Minotauros suffered their first playoff loss of the season on Friday as Kyle Doll scored in overtime and the Bobcats defeated the Tauros 4-3 in Bismarck. Minot led after one period on a goal by Adam Mahler. Bismarck came out of the first intermission and scored three straight before the Tauros responded on tallies by Marray Marvin-Cordes and Trevor Stachowiak. No one scored in the third period, so it went to the extra session where Bismarck would get the win 6:16 into the period. Brady James made 35 saves on 39 attempts by the Cats. Minot leads the best-of-five Central Division Final series 2-1. The Tauros will try to close it out tonight in game four at the VFW Sports Center in Bismarck at 7:15 pm.
MANKATO, Minn. (MSU) – It’s been a debut season to remember, one that just keeps getting better and better for Jasiah Hambira who also keeps getting better and better. Minot State’s freshman jumper, who has broken records all year in the high jump, broke the NSIC record in the event and won his first NSIC Championship with a new career-best effort at the NSIC Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Friday hosted by Minnesota State, Mankato. Clearing 6 feet, 8.75 inches and 6-9.75 on his first attempt at each height, Hambira distanced himself from the field, then on his third attempt at 7 feet, 0.25 inches, he cleared the bar breaking his own all-time outdoor Minot State record in the event, the NSIC record, and winning his first NSIC Championship. That winning performance broke the NSIC record of 7-feet-even set by Brian Rabenberg of Minnesota State Moorhead way back in 1988. It also broke Hambira’s own all-time outdoor school record of 6-11.75 from last month and is an NCAA qualifying mark that ranks the Beaver freshman No. 11 in the nation currently. The NCAA National Championships will be hosted by Emporia State in Kansas, May 23-25, and Hambira is now poised for a first-ever invitation to nationals. Hambira also becomes only the second Beaver high jumper to eclipse 7 feet, joining Zach Ryan who holds the all-time indoor Minot State record as he cleared 7-1.5 in 2010.
While Hambira’s win set the tone, he was one of two Beavers who earned All-NSIC honors with a stellar performance Friday, and one of three who scored points on the second day of competition. Adding a day to remember was sophomore distance runner Nicole Reeves who earned All-NSIC honors with a top 3 finish in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase as she crushed her own all-time best performance in the event and placed 3rd in 11 minutes, 7.56 seconds – more than 18 seconds faster than her previous best and a performance that will be remembered at Minot State as the fastest ever as she broke the all-time record of 11:21.03 run by Samantha Huether in 2018. Reeves finished third behind NSIC champion Eleni Lovgren of Augustana (10:58.11) and runner-up Mary Goodwin of Bemidji State (11:04.02).
While Hambira and Reeves brought home special honors, the Beavers also got a podium finish and points from senior thrower Samuel Kreins in the shot put as he placed 7th in the event with a throw of 52 feet, 5.25 inches. Tyler Hiatt of Sioux Falls won the event with a mark of 57-7. The points earned by Hambira and Kreins have the Minot State men sitting in 10th place as a team with 12 points after seven of 21 scoring events. On the women’s side, Reeves’ performance scored the Minot State women 6 points as the Beaver ladies are 11th through seven scored events. And the Beavers are poised to add more to their score – and maybe a few more titles and All-NSIC honors after strong showings in several preliminary events Friday.
Another potential Minot State champion is hurdler Ramon Duran who clocked the second-fastest time in the prelims in the men’s 400-meter hurdles with a time of 53.72 for a spot in Saturday’s finals. Also advancing to a final on the men’s side are Peyton Tuhy and Devontae Daley who both advanced in the 800 meters as Tuhy clocked a prelim time of 1:57.52 and Daley a 1:59.03. Tuhy’s time was fourth fastest on Friday and Daley ninth best. On the women’s side, both Sidra Sadowsky and De’Andre Cornwall raced their way into a spot in Saturday’s finals as Sadowsky was 6th fastest in the prelims in the 800 meters in 2:17.29 and Cornwall was 6th fastest in the prelims in the 100-meter hurdles in 14.16. Today’s final day of competition gets underway at 11 a.m.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Denver Nuggets were simply too determined, too experienced, too proud and too talented to let their flop in the first two games define this series against the surging Minnesota Timberwolves. This is what defending NBA champions do — quiet a raucous crowd, embrace the boos and take the momentum right back. Jamal Murray rebounded from a rough start to the Western Conference semifinals with 24 points to lead the Nuggets on a 117-90 romp Friday night in Game 3 that made the Timberwolves the last team in the NBA to lose this postseason. Nikola Jokic, the three-time league MVP, had 24 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists, Michael Porter Jr. scored 21 points and the Nuggets sliced Minnesota’s series lead to 2-1 on the strength of their 14-for-29 shooting from 3-point range. Anthony Edwards had a quiet 19 points to lead the Wolves, who went just 10 for 32 from deep even with a 4-for-5 effort from Karl-Anthony Towns. They failed to get Towns (14 points) enough shots and played slower than they did in the first two games in Denver while falling behind by as many as 34 points. The Nuggets became the 30th team in the history of the NBA playoffs to lose the first two games at home in a best-of-seven series. Five have rallied to win. Game four is Sunday in Minneapolis.
TORONTO (AP) — Carlos Santana hit a tiebreaking home run in the fifth inning, Joe Ryan pitched a season-high seven innings and the Minnesota Twins won for the 16th time in 18 games by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Friday night. Carlos Correa had two hits and scored twice as the Twins won for the ninth time in their past 13 games in Toronto. Jose Miranda added an RBI single as the Twins, who successfully brought their lucky sausage across the Canadian border, extended their road winning streak to seven. Santana was struck on the helmet by the sausage as he returned to the dugout following his home run. Ryan (2-2) allowed one run and six hits for his first victory in three starts. He struck out seven and did not give up a walk. Jhoan Duran worked the eighth and Griffin Jax pitched the ninth for his fifth save in seven chances. Isiah Kiner-Falefa had three hits, including his second home run, but the Blue Jays lost for the sixth time in eight games.
RHP Kevin Gausman (2-3, 3.78 ERA) starts for Toronto today against Twins RHP Simeon Woods Richardson (1-0, 1.74). Gausman has a 6.35 ERA in 11 career games against Minnesota.
