Ironmen beat Mesabi in Florida sunshine

Vermilion’s Kaleb Beane returned to familiar territory and made quite a first impression.
The native of Tallahassee, Fla., returned to the Sunshine State for the Ironmen’s season-opening baseball trip and had two strong pithcing performances.
The first was March 8, when he gave up two hits over five innings and pitched the Ironmen to a 9-1 victory over Northern Division rival Mesabi.
Beane’s outing, as well as a strong second start in a 7-1 loss to Division II Lewis and Clark (Ill.) Monday, along with sophomore Kyle Hintz’s gem in a hard-luck 2-1 Tuesday defeat to MN State-Fergus Falls were among the highlights of a weeklong stay for the Ironmen.

Ironmen beat Mesabi in sunny Florida

Vermilion's Kaleb Beane returned to familiar territory and made quite a first impression.

The native of Tallahassee, Fla., returned to the Sunshine State for the Ironmen's season-opening baseball trip and had two strong pithcing performances.

The first was March 8, when he gave up two hits over five innings and pitched the Ironmen to a 9-1 victory over Northern Division rival Mesabi.

Fellow freshman Chase Bottin had four runs batted in, three on his first career home run, and Dawson Linkert added more freshman punch to the lineup and contributed two hits as VCC gained its only win on a weeklong seven-game junket.

Beane was effective on the mound Tuesday, giving up two earned runs in five innings as VCC fell 7-2 to Lewis and Clark, a Division II scholarship juior college from Illinois.

Buzzer-beater knocks out Ely boys

by Tom Coombe -

Brandon Barbee's last-second putback ended the Ely Timberwolves' season and their bid for a Section 7A boys basketball tournament upset.

Barbee snared an offensive rebound and scored just as time expired, capping off an 8-0 Lakeview Christian Academy run in the last three minutes and giving his Lions a 62-60 7A quarterfinal win Saturday night at Romano Gymnasium on the campus of the University of MInnesota-Duluth.

The sixth-seeded Wolves, who finished 17-11, led for much of the game and went up 60-54 with 2:48 left.

But the Wolves never took another shot and turnovers were deadly down the home stretch.

Barbee tied it up with 1:25 left and the Wolves soon turned the ball over, allowing the third-seeded Lions to hold for the last shot.

The late collapse spoiled a spirited effort by the Wolves, who fell 67-51 to LCA during the regular season and played without injured starting guard Eric Omerza.
