Jessica Lindstrom scored 30 points Tuesday night to become Superior's all-time leading girls basketball scorer in the Spartans' convincing 82-50 victory over Duluth East at Superior High School.

Lindstrom, a junior, passed her sister Lindsey's 1,312-point total and now has 1,329.

Junior Hailey Kontny, who became the fourth Spartan to surpass 1,000 career points last week, added 18 points for the sixth-ranked Spartans (18-2), who wore pink jerseys in honor of a Slam Dunk Cancer event.

Hannah Johnson and Mia Anderson combined for 43 points to lead the Greyhounds (6-16), who lost their sixth consecutive game.

Mountain Iron-Buhl 71, Cherry 51


Allie Knuti scored 17 points and the top-ranked Rangers (23-2) completed an undefeated home season with the Arrowhead Conference victory.


Hermantown 62, Grand Rapids 47

Kole Zuidmulder scored 18 points and Kevin Folman added 17 as the host Hawks served notice they are capable of ending the Thunderhawks' five-year run atop Section 7AAA.

Hermantown (17-3) outscored No. 5-ranked Grand Rapids 37-19 in the second half.

Alex Illikainen scored 35 points for the Thunderhawks (15-5).

Lakeview Christian 112, Deer River 107

Senior guard Anders Broman continued his charge toward the 5,000-point barrier with 58 points and five of the visiting Lions' 14 3-pointers in one of the state's all-time highest-scoring games.


Sophomore Bjorn Broman scored 30 points and hit seven 3-point field goals for Lakeview Christian Academy (11-9); Noah Kaczor led the Warriors with a career-high 54 points and Henry Hellmann added 33.

The game matched the ninth-highest scoring game in state history -- though it was Lakeview's second most behind a 224-point game against Melrose Area in 2012 -- while the second half produced 127 total points.

Superior 61, Duluth East 60

The host Spartans (18-2) survived a seesaw fourth quarter for their 11th straight victory.

Led by Shaq Coleman's 25 points, the Greyhounds outscored Superior 26-20 in the final quarter, but were unable to overcome a seven-point deficit.

Duluth Denfeld 89, Proctor 50

Jamarr Harkins scored 21 points as the visiting Hunters rolled to the Lake Superior Conference win to snap a 19-game losing streak that dated to last season's playoffs.

After a stretch of 10 straight road games, Proctor was playing its first home game since Jan. 7.


Hibbing 73, Chisholm 43

Tyler Jerkovich scored 23 points for the host Bluejackets and Hibbing coach Joel McDonald faced his alma mater for the first time without his father coaching against him.

Longtime Chisholm coach Bob McDonald remained in intensive care in Hibbing after a car crash last Thursday left him with broken ribs. Despite a bout with pneumonia, McDonald could return home as early as today or Thursday.


Proctor-Hermantown 5, Princeton 3

Reilly Fawcett scored two goals, including one shorthanded, and Jenna Wassenaar capped her two-goal performance with an empty-netter to catapult the Mirage into the Section 7A championship game.

Fawcett struck 48 seconds into the semifinal at Northwoods Arena in Cloquet and Wassenaar closed the first period with a goal to make it 3-1. Fawcett's short-handed goal increased the margin to three early in the third before the Tigers (13-10-3) made it interesting with a pair of goals.

Proctor-Hermantown (18-6-1) advances to face Hibbing-Chisholm in Friday's championship game in Cloquet. The Bluejackets, behind two goals from Katie Dye, downed Moose Lake Area 3-1 in the other semi.


Grand Rapids 5, Duluth Denfeld 0

Avery Peterson scored twice and Hunter Shepard stopped all 27 shots he faced in the Thunderhawks' nonconference home win.

Eveleth-Gilbert 20, Moose Lake Area 1

Eveleth dominated high school hockey in the sport's infancy in the 1940s and '50s, but never did the school have a night like Tuesday at the Hippodrome in Eveleth.

Brett Kivela had three goals and four assists and Mitchell Huffman also had a hat trick as the Golden Bears scored what is believed to be a regular-season state-record 20 goals. Half of the tallies came in the first period, with another five scored in each of the second and third periods.
