Update: Ranger volleyball advances to semis

It was an exciting night on Friday to be a Forest Lake volleyball fan when the Rangers defeated fifth-seeded Anoka in five sets to move on to the semifinals of the Section 7AA tournament.

Forest Lake took the first two sets with ease, then dropped the next two to take the match to five sets.

The Rangers jumped into a head-to-head battle right away until pulling away at the end to win 15-12.

Fourth-seeded Forest Lake moves on to play top-seeded Cambridge-Isanti on the Bluejacket home court at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30. The Rangers defeated the Bluejackets in the first match of the season, 3-0, then fell in three sets at the Duluth East tournament at the end of September.
