10 YEARS AGO (2012): St. Mary’s earned a tough 1-0 win over Mandan in boys soccer behind a 60th-minute tally by Ben Weisbeck. Nathan Vetter assisted on the goal. Thomas Gilchrist made three saves for St. Mary’s, with opposite Brendan Ereth making fourteen saves for the Braves. The lone yellow cards in the match went to Mandan, with Grant Aasand and Michael Helmers being called to account.

20 YEARS AGO (2002): Bismarck High halted a three-game winning streak by Minot in boys soccer with a 4-2 win over the Magicians. Bismarck’s Christopher Nilsson had three assists in the win, dishing helpers to Josh Stenson, Steve Zottnick and Nick White while Bismarck’s defense did just enough to hold the Magicians off. Minot closed the gap to 3-2 with the final goal of the first half and the first goal of the second, but White’s tally gave Bismarck the breathing room it needed to seal the win. Bismarck was shown five yellow cards, including one flashed at Nilsson. Casey Schumacher scored an unassisted goal for Bismarck’s third tally. Brent Nelson made 12 save in the win.

50 YEARS AGO (1972): The fundraiser to build a pro house at Riverwood Golf Course passed the minimum figure promoters of the project felt was necessary to ensure a 50 by 80-foot building would be installed at the 18-hole course. Spearheaded by Bismarck businessman Ted Welk, the project crossed the $12,000 mark raised from outside sources in hopes of drawing a funding grant from the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation.


With their win Thursday, Cleveland now leads the Thursday Night Football series 3-2.

Court documents say a driver charged with fatally striking an 18-year-old in North Dakota allegedly told investigators he purposely hit the teen with his SUV after they had a political argument. Cayler Ellingson was struck and killed following a street dance in McHenry early Sunday. The driver accused of striking Ellingson in an alley, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt, is charged in Foster County with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death. A probable cause affidavit says Brandt told investigators he had been drinking alcohol before striking Ellingson and thought the teen was calling people to do him harm after they argued and that he felt threatened. Brandt was released from jail Tuesday after posting $50,000 bond.

North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley is condemning the violent death of an 18-year-old allegedly struck by a man who said he drove his SUV into the victim after a political argument. According to a probably cause affidavit, Shannon Brandt told a 911 dispatcher that he struck Cayler Ellingson early Sunday in McHenry because the teenager was threatening him, and that the teen was part of a “Republican extremist group.” Investigators say they have been unable to corroborate Brandt's claims. He has been charged with criminal vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death. Officials say a breath test Sunday showed Brandt's blood alcohol level was above the legal limit to drive.
