Game slips away from Hill-Murray in fourth quarter
On an unseasonably chilly Halloween, the Hill-Murray Pioneers' trip to South St. Paul for the Section 4AAAA football finals proved to be a frightful nightmare.
Things started well for the Pioneers, who took advantage of the Packers' three fumbles and led the entire first half. But the Packers, winners of the Metro East Conference, got back on track late in the game for a 35-21 victory.

The volleyball team from Concordia Academy is back in the state tournament for the first time since 2008. The Beacons clinched a spot in the tournament by winning the Section 4AA championship last week.
Four Bulletin-area high school cross country runners are set to compete in the state meet on Saturday afternoon. All four earned at-large state berths via their performances at the Section 5AA meet last week.
