Jake’s Take on Sports

A tragedy in Cavalier forces Tornadoes-Cardinals games to be postponed

Posted 12/20/18

We start this week with some sad news.   A tragic loss of a former Cavalier Tornadoes boys basketball player and high school alum postponed the Langdon-Edmore-Munich/Tornadoes game that were to be held in Langdon on Dec. 21.  We would get into the story of what happened here, but everyone at the Cavalier school and the entire community is have a rough time dealing with the situation, and it is very understandable to postpone the games to a later date, one of which has yet to be determined.  Our sincere condolences go out the the Peterson family and everyone in Cavalier and Pembina County.

Christmas break games happening for all Langdon winter sports teams

Even though the Cardinals games with Cavalier will be moved, both the Cards boys and girls teams plus the Langdon Blades high school teams will be busy after Christmas.  The Cardinals boys hoops squad will playing two games in Minot, in the Hoopster Classic on Dec. 28, and the Dale Brown Classic on Dec. 29.  They will play Minot Our Reedeemers the first day and New Town the second, with both game times at 4:30 p.m.  The Lady Cards girls basketball squad will play a game over the break at Carrington on Dec. 29 with an approximate start time of 4:00p.m.  Meanwhile the Langdon Blades junior gold hockey team will be playing two exhibition games at MacGregor, MB on Dec. 29-30, while the Blades girls hockey team will be on the road at Wahpeton and Fargo Dec. 29-30.  It’s rather bizzarre that while all four teams are in action over the holidays, all are on the road.  There are lots of home dates coming for all of them in the New Year which will touch on next week.

Look for a Williston update next issue

While we will be on Minot to broadcast the Cardinals boys games on Dec. 28-29 on 95.7 FM, I will also be jumping back and forth to Williston for the Christmas Break.  We will update you on the latest craziness from “Willyville” and as always we have some interesting stories for sure.

Merry Christmas to all of our readers, and “See ya!” next week!
