Thanks to a first half goal by senior Katie Turner and a whole lot of teamwork, the Cloquet girls soccer team defeated St. Frances 1-0 in their Class AA quarterfinal game Wednesday, Oct. 27 and advanced to the semifinal round at U.S. Bank stadium.

The Lumberjacks will face Benilde-St. Margaret’s at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 at The Bank. If they win Thursday, the Class AA championship game is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 at U.S. Bank stadium.

This is the third year in a row for the Lumberjacks girls soccer team to win its section, and their second trip to state in three years because there was no state meet last year due to the pandemic.
