Headline Story: Duluth East’s Kai Hoffman scored a goal and had an assist to lead the Greyhounds to a 3-1 victory over Moorhead in the Minnesota Class AAA quarterfinals Wednesday at Irondale High School.
Hoffman headed his first goal off an Aiden Olson free kick in the fifth minute of the game.
Hoffman assisted on William Smith’s goal in the 55th minute, but Moorhead’s Ben Colborn scored a minute later off a free kick from Max Hodny to keep the Spuds in the game.
“We started off slow in both halves and I think once we scored the second goal we got a little too comfortable,” Hoffman said. “Then they scored, but every guy kept working, every guy on the team kept their heads in the game and all that work to get to U.S. Bank, that’s what kept us in the game, that’s what won us that game.”
Ben Colborn’s header on a Max Hodny free kick makes it past Duluth East goalkeeper Elijah Kramer (1) for the only Moorhead goal during the Class AAA state quarterfinals on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021, at Irondale High School in New Brighton, Minn.

NDSU football fans have to feel like I did when I was in high school.
Watching everyone invited to the cool kids party and you’re left on the outside.
It has to feel that way to see James Madison set to bolt the FCS for the greener pastures of the FBS and an invite to the Sun Belt Conference.
The Dukes have positioned themselves well with a good football team, great facilities and most importantly, a location that’s desirable. They’ll be re-united with some other FCS giants like Georgia Southern, Appalachian State and Coastal Carolina.
What does this mean for NDSU?
