10 YEARS AGO (2011): Sophomore Andrea Ferguson scored two long-range goals to give Bismarck a 2-1 girls soccer victory over previously unbeaten St. Maru's at the Community Bowl. Both of Ferguson's goals came in the first 11 minutes of the game. Kalah Peterson trimmed the Saints' deficit to 2-1 in the 52nd minute, but that was the final tally of the contest. Bismarck finished with a 13-7 advantage in shots on net. Bismarck's record is now 4-2-1. St. Mary's stands 3-1-3.

20 YEARS AGO (2001): Heather Zander, an eighth-grader from Mandan, won four events, all with personal-best efforts, to help the host Braves to the title in the Mandan Kiwanis track and field meet at Faris Field. Mandan won the title with 166 points, while Minot, the West Region favorite, scored 133 for second place. Zander's outstanding performance consisted of wins in the 100 (12.18), the 100 hurdles (15.0) the long jump (17-3) and the 200 (25.40). The latter was a meet record.

50 YEARS AGO (1971): The Bismarck St. Mary's tennis team claimed its first dual victory of the year, stopping Bismarck High 5-4. Bismarck's Bob Smith and Tom Koenig claimed two of the three singles matches with the other going to the Saints' Terry Mees. St. Mary's prevailed 12-10 in the doubles match with Dan Enders and Darany Mees teaming up for the win. The Saints now stand 1-5 on the season.


The last time the Minnesota Vikings opened the season with back-to-back road games was 2013. The Vikings opened with a 34-24 loss at Detroit and a 31-30 loss at Chicago. Minnesota finished 5-10-1.
