By The Sports Xchange MINNEAPOLIS — The battered, bruised, beneficent Minnesota Vikings defense finally made a stand at Mall of America Field on Thursday night, in the most dramatic way possible. After falling into a 13-point hole in the third quarter, the Vikings shut down the Washington Redskins, allowing Christian Ponder, and then Matt Cassel, to lead Minnesota to a 34-27 victory. Down by seven points in the final minutes, the Redskins drove from their 20-yard line to a first-and-goal at the Vikings 8.

YANKTON — The Mitchell Kernel football season came to an end with a fifth straight loss, falling 48-12 to No. 3 Yankton in the first round of the Class 11AA playoffs Thursday in Yankton. The Mitchell offense never got going against an aggressive Bucks defense and big plays on special teams hurt the No. 6 Kernels early in the game.

With the regular season starting Monday, the Dakota Wesleyan University men’s basketball team will get glimpse of where it is at when the Tigers face NCAA Division I South Dakota State University in an exhibition game at 8 tonight at Frost Arena in Brookings.

The 5K race was run on a course at Robbinsdale Park that none of the runners had seen before.
It’s been 20 years since the 1993 Kernel football team went out like a lion, after coming in as a 1-6 lamb.
