Goltz Sharp Again, Cavanagh's Qualify for State Am
The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks recorded a 9-2 victory over Joliet on Tuesday night at Neweman Outdoor Field in Fargo.  Fergus Falls product Brandon Goltz earned his third win of the season as he threw seven innings, allowing just one run on three hits.
 
Through the first five innings of the game Goltz had faced just one over the minimum as Dennis Blackmon
had dropped a single into center field and later scored on two passed balls during the fourth inning.

In his seven innings of work Goltz struck out a career high four batters while not allowing a walk.

Fergus Falls American Legion Post 30 will be hosting their annual 4th of July Tournament this weekend.  The local team will play three games over two days, beginning with a one o'clock start against New London-Spicer on Friday.  They will also play Thief River Falls at 7:00 p.m. Friday.  Between the two Fergus Falls games, Jamestown will face Thief River Falls in a contest that begins at four o'clock.
 
Saturday's schedule begins at 10:00 a.m. with Jamestown taking on New London-Spicer.  The one o'clock game is between Thief River Falls and New London-Spicer, and the final game of the tournament will feature Fergus Falls and Jamestown at four o'clock.
 
Monday games were rained out for VFW Post 612 of Fergus Falls.  The East Grand Forks team had made the trip and the teams were one pitch into the first game when the rain came down.  Coach Ryan Hendrickson reports that it came so hard that puddles formed on the field instantly and they had to postpone the double header.  Hendrickson is trying to reschedule the Moorhead double header that was scheduled for Wednesday and is looking at July 7th as a possible date.  The games were moved because of the absence of many Fergus Falls players this week.  Several members of the team are on a Young Life trip to Colorado.
 
Kids entering third through sixth grades can still register to participate in the Fergus Falls Area Youth Football Assocation's second season..  For more information contact Dan Prischmann at 739-2064 or visit the website at www.ffareafootball.org.
 
Perham High School graduate Lee Cavanagh, entering his sophomore year at NDSU, set the course record at Wildflower Golf Course near Detroit Lakes when he shot a 7-under par 65 in qualifying for the Minnesota State Amateur Tournament.  Cavanagh needed only 24 putts in his record setting round.  Lee's brother Taylor Cavanagh, who will be a freshman at NDSU this fall, shot a 1-over par 73, which was good enough to grab the second qualifying spot on the 6,980-yard course.  Their uncle, Bob Cavanagh, shot a 73 at the Keller Golf Club in St. Paul, to also qualify.  The 103rd MGA Amateur Championship will be held at Midland Hills Country Club in St. Paul, July 17-19.
 
Perham's Joe Schornack, who will also be a sophomore at NDSU this next school year, failed to qualify as he shot a 76 at Wildflower.  Schornack will be among the area golfers attempting to qualify for the Minnesota State Open this Friday at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls.  Eric Harris and Kirk Eilertson from Detroit Lakes are also in the field, along with Charlie Larson from Thumper Pond in Ottertail.
 
Fergus Falls club pro Jeff Bass will also compete, as will Pebble Lake members John Ouren, Mike Tuel, Kyle Rohlfs, and Jere Hansen.
 
West Central Area High School graduate Adam Hanson from Red Rock Golf Course in Barrett, will also participate, along with Jake Seltz, Will Harris, Benjamin Vangness, Tyler Whiting and Wade Vangness from Alexandria.  Minnewaska Area golfers Justin Buysse, Bill Freeman and Seth Burgess are also entered, along wih Patrick Beste of Sauk Centre and Clint Nelson from Oxbow County Club.  Andy Jacobson of Island Pine Golf Course completes the field of 21 golfers who will by vying for five qualifying spots.

Two More Aces Recorded at Pebble Lake
Two more aces have been recorded at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls.  Add Scott Robideaux of Grafton, North Dakota, and Fergus Falls resident Dave Nelson to the list of those golfers recording a Hole-In-One at the course so far this season.
 
On Saturday, June 10, Robideaux aced the 176-yard eighth hole, using a 5-iron.  His feat was witnessed by John Robideaux.
 
On Tuesday, June 13, Nelson, playing the 156-yard fifteenth hole, put the ball in the cup with a 7-iron.  His Hole-In-One was witnessed by Rick Dean and Don Henley.
 
The 3rd Annual "Otter" Bremer Scramble was held this past Friday at Pebble Lake Golf Course in Fergus Falls.  Shoremaster won the tournament with a 60.  Team members included Dennis Tuel, Mike Tuel, Pat Tuel, Dan Ouren and John Ouren.  Second place went to the Lakes Radio team of Taylor Gray, Lincoln Kalenberg, Troy Kuehl and Eric Shelstad with a 61.  The Minnesota Motors team of Matt Brimhall, Steve Brimhall, Matt Ness and Charlie Schonhardt took "Middle Place" with a 69.
 
Hole Contest winners included Kevin King winning the Lakes Radio Long Putt Contest, Michelle Pearson and Mike Tuel with the Longest Drives on hole number five, Mary Jo Beigler and Mike Tuel with the shots Closest to the Pin on number eight, and Anita Bethel and Mark Bezek with the Longest Put on number 18.
 
The tournament raises scholarship money for Fergus Falls High School and Minnesota State Community and Technical College, Fergus Falls.
 
Speaking of golf, the U.S. Open gets underway at Winged Foot Golf Club this week and Tiger Woods makes his long awaited return to the tour after taking several events off following the death of his father.  If you ask me, this tournament is set up perfectly for his triumphant return.  The best golfer in the World takes center stage at probably as difficult a venue as you will see on the PGA tour, as he tries to win his 11th major at a tournament that will conclude on Father's Day, a short time after his father, best friend, coach and motivator, passes away.  The script is almost too good to think it can be pulled off as written, but with Tiger, it's almost a sure thing in my mind.  Some guys just thrive on situations like this and Tiger is certainly one of them.  I look for him to win this event by 3 strokes, which is a huge margin on this course.  All of the golfers will have tremendous difficulty shooting par or better over four rounds of competition.  It should be a great event.  Look for Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh to be the top challengers.
 
Joe Mauer is second to no other catcher in the majors, right now!  In my opinion he is the best all around backstop in either league.  He is the top hitter, as good defensively as anyone the Twins have ever had at that position, and from all reports, handles pitchers as well as anyone.  Can't ask for more than that from a catcher! 
 
Mauer reached base four times in five consecutive games last week, a record-equaling and award-winning performance, helping him to the American League Player of the Week award.  The 23-year-old hit .625 (15-for-24) with five doubles, four RBIs and two stolen bases in winning the award for the first (but not the last) time in his career.
 
Having said that, Mauer isn't even in the top five in All-Star voting.  Come on fans!  The guy is hitting over .380!  You can vote by going to www.mlb.com.  I'm sure Ozzie Guillen will choose Mauer since he isn't going to be voted on the team by the fans.  Also look for Johan Santana to make it and possibly Francisco Liriano.  No other Twins player has a shot.
 
It was good to see Jason Kubel come through with that clutch grand slam home run against the Red Sox on Tuesday night!  A great win and what should be a tremendous boost for Kubel who missed all of last season with an injury.  He is going to be a solid, every day player for the Twins for years to come.  It has also been great to see Michael Cuddyer contributing the way he has. He's a fan favorite in the this area as several people have met him through his multiple appearances at the Twins Winter Caravan stops in Fergus Falls.  He's a nice guy and it's good to see him tasting some success!
 
Fergus Falls native Justin Arneson continues his struggles at the plate for the Class A Fort Myers Miracle.  Arne is hitting just .196 (20-for-102) in 35 games.  He has four doubles, one triple and three stolen bases in five attempts. 
 
Registration for the 2006 Fergus Falls Area Youth Football Association's second season will be held this Saturday, June 17th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Fergus Falls Middle School Cafeteria.  The Fergus Falls Otters Football Booster Club and the FFHS Otters High School coaching staff were highly pleased with the FFAYFA's initial season last fall and look forward to an even better 2007. Youngsters entering third through sixth grades are eligible to participate.

Goltz Gets the Win for RedHawks
Brandon Goltz was credited with the win as the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks used five pitchers in their Monday night game against the Schaumburg Flyers.  The RedHawks won 9-7 after battling two rain delays, totaling 55 minutes.
 
Goltz improved to 2-0 on the season after going five innings and allowing one earned run on four hits.  He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter.  Brian Adams came in to pitch the ninth inning and picked up his fifth save of the season.  With the win Fargo-Moorhead moved to 13-4 and now has the best record in the Northern League.
 
Golfers interested in participating in the Otter Bremer Annual Golf tournament this Friday, June 9, have just a few more days to get their team organized and enrolled.  Signup deadline for teams is Wednesday.  The Otter Bremer Annual Golf Tournament is a partnership with Bremer Bank, the Fergus Falls School Dsitrict, and Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Fergus Falls to raise money in support of scholarships for students attending college.
 
As a new tournament sponsor, the Fergus Area College Foundation will award a scholarship to MSCTC by random drawing from a list of participants if more than 20 teams participate.  The Fergus Area College Foundation also will sponsor a new hole-in-one contest, awarding the winner a $2,000 scholarship to cover tuition for one full semester at MSCTC-Fergus Falls.  The award can be used by the winner or given to a student of their choice.
 
Scholarships from the high school are awarded to students of the Outstanding Otters Program, and range from $250 to $500, and may be used at whatever college the student chooses.
 
Bremer will also accept non-perishable food items at the tournament or at the bank in recognition of Hunger Awareness Week.  Donations will go to the Fergus Falls Food Shelf.  The tournament is open to 160 golfers and costs $100 per person.  Interested golfers can contact Chris from Bremer Bank at 736-0110.
 
Taylor Gray, 13-year old 3rd Degree Junior Black Belt and a student of The Master's Martial Arts Academy in Fergus Falls, earned the title of Grand Champion at the 15th Annual Summer's Martical Arts Taekwondo Tournament on Saturday.
 
Gray placed first in breaking and traditonal poomse (pattern).  He was runner-up in weapons forms and sparring.  In the Grand Champion competition, points are given for 1st through 3rd place finish in each event.  The competitor with the highest point total is given the distinction of Grand Champion.
 
Also competing in the tournament from The Master's Martial Arts Academy were Fergus Falls brothers Ryan Stocks and Logan Stocks.  Ryan, a red belt, placed 3rd in poomse while his brother Logan finished 3rd in sparring and 4th in poomse in the brown belt division.
