WISCONSIN - Northland Pines defeated Regis/McDonell 3-0 in the Division 4 sectional semifinal Thursday night in Eagle River.

Northland Pines' three goals came in the second half.

"We weren't talking enough in the first half," said senior co-captain Jenna Paez. "We weren't controlling as much, not going to the ball, but after our talk we really started going to the ball, making those runs."

Northland Pines will now play Aquinas in Stevens Point Saturday. Aquinas finished the season ranked second. 

"Just work on the little things because the little things make you go a long way, and just connecting our passes, making sure they're solid, just talking doing a good job," said senior co-captain Lexi Smith. 

Three teams that made the state tournament last year fell Thursday.

The Rhineladner Hodags lost to Pulaski 3-1.

Defending Division I state champions DC Everest lost to Eau Claire Memorial 6-3 in overtime.

Ashland lost 1-0 to Osceola.

TOWN OF PELICAN - Twisted metal and side-curtain air bags gave a pretty good sense of how bad a crash was Wednesday afternoon, but the Town of Pelican's deputy fire chief already knew he needed to work quickly.

"Time is of the essence," Norm Peterson said.

Peterson's department got the 911 page of a two-car crash on Highway 8 and River Bend Road, about two miles east of Rhinelander, around 12:30 p.m.  The cars both ended up in the ditch on the north side of Highway 8, out of traffic.  Police reduced traffic to one lane while medics treated the injured, but cars were able to still get through in both directions.
