A handful of Class B High School Girls Softball games were played today....

    MINOT, ND - A handful of Class B High School Girls Softball games were played today. Kenmare-Bowbells-MLS defeated Glenburn 32-3, Ray downed Glenburn 21-4 and Kenmare-Bowbells-MLS topped Ray 11-7.

    Minot High girls tennis was in action today as well hosting Bismarck Century at Cameron Indoor Tennis Center. The Majettes posted a 4-1 win.

    MINOT, ND - The Minot Minotauros are in Aberdeen, South Dakota to begin the NAHL Robertson Cup Playoffs. The two teams played last weekend in their final regular season games in Minot and split the series. The Wings won the season series winning 8 of the 12 games during the regular season.

    The teams also faced one another in the Division Semi-Finals last year, with the roles reversed where Minot was the #1 seed and Aberdeen was the #4 seed. Aberdeen beat the Minotauros and ended up making the Robertson Cup Championship.

    The first two games in the best of five Central Division Semifinal are in Aberdeen tonight and tomorrow with game three next Friday, April 20th, here in Minot.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have postponed their game against the Chicago White Sox because of rain, with wintry weather also threatening the rest of the series. The team announced about four hours before the scheduled first pitch. There were two more games scheduled for the weekend. The Twins have already had one game postponed during this homestand, moving last Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners to May 14.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have released Dez Bryant, deciding salary cap relief with the star receiver's declining production outweighs the risk of him returning to All-Pro form with another team. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said in a statement today it wasn't an easy decision, but was what the organization believes is in its best interest.
 
     Bryant never lived up to the $70 million, five-year contract he signed after leading the NFL with 16 touchdowns receiving in 2014. He helped the Cowboys win the NFC East that year, when they had only their second playoff game victory since the last of their five Super Bowl titles in the 1995 season.
 
     Bryant sent a tweet late this morning addressing Cowboys fans to say he had met with Jones. "Cowboy nation I need you to know this wasn't my decision.. I will always love y'all... forever Dallas in my heart," he tweeted.
 
     That came only minutes after he tweeted, "lets start the process."

     UNDATED (AP) - Dallas Stars coach Ken Hitchcock is retiring, ending a 22-year career as the third-winningest coach in NHL history. Hitchcock will become a consultant for the team he led to its only Stanley Cup championship in 1999. The 66-year-old says it was "the right time to step away and let the younger generation of coaches take over."
 
     Hitchcock returned to Dallas this season after 15 years away, with stops in Philadelphia, Columbus and St. Louis. General manager Jim Nill hoped Hitchcock could get the Stars back to the playoffs, but a late-season slump kept them out for the second straight year and the eighth time in 10 seasons.
 
     Hitchcock's 823 wins are third all-time behind Scotty Bowman and Joel Quenneville. He's fourth in games with 1,536.
 
     In other NHL news:
 
     - The Los Angeles Kings will be without defenseman Drew Doughty for Game 2 of the playoffs tonight against the Las Vegas Golden Knights. He was suspended by the NHL for an illegal check to the head of Vegas forward William Carrier. The expansion Golden Knights looked every bit ready for the playoffs when they rode goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to a 1-0 victory in Game 1.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Hornets have fired coach Steve Clifford after the team failed to reach the playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons. The move comes after a meeting with new general manager Mitch Kupchak today.
 
     Charlotte finished 36-46 despite what Clifford on Wednesday called his most talented team. Clifford missed 21 games this season because of headaches stemming from sleep deprivation. He acknowledged that the Hornets "didn't make good progress" this year.
 
     The Hornets were 196-214 in five seasons under Clifford. They reached the playoffs twice, but failed to make it out of the first round in 2014 and 2016.
 
     Clifford is the third NBA coach to be dismissed since the end of the regular season, following Jeff Hornacek of New York and Frank Vogel of Orlando.
 
     Elsewhere around the league:
 
     - Thunder television play-by-play man Brian Davis has been suspended for Game 1 of the playoff series against Utah on Sunday for a comment he made about star Russell Westbrook during Oklahoma City's regular-season finale against Memphis. Davis said Westbrook was "out of his cotton-pickin' mind." The comment came after the Oklahoma City guard made an assist in Wednesday's game on his way to setting an NBA record for averaging a triple-double in multiple seasons.
 
     - The NBA has suspended Washington Wizards guard Jodie Meeks 25 games without pay for using a banned substance. The league announced the suspension Friday, a day before Game 1 of the Wizards' first-round playoff series against the East's top-seeded Toronto Raptors. The NBA says Meeks tested positive for Ipamorelin, a growth hormone that's prohibited under the league's drug program.
