Grizzlies move to Class A title tilt

Defeat Cass Lake-Bena 67-47 in semi-finals

Posted

TARGET CENTER— For the second year in a row, the North Woods Grizzlies will compete in the state Class A title match, after dismantling Cass Lake-Bena 67-47 in the semi-final round on Friday. It was a game marred in the final minutes by unsportsmanlike conduct by a couple Cass Lake players. Their actions, described as “vicious” by some commentators, led to two technical fouls and left Grizzlies sophomore forward Trevor Morrison out of the game for a time while trainers checked him for injuries after he was grabbed by the neck and thrown to the floor by a Cass Lake player. Cass Lake also roughed up North Woods junior point guard Cade Goggleye, who came up big for the Grizzlies, pouring in a game-high 23 points.

The win improved North Woods record to 31-1. They’ll now face Russell-Tyler Ruthton, now 30-1, in the Class A championship. Tip-off is set for 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, March 24, at Target Center in St. Paul.
