Jays struggle in lighter weights in loss


Jamestown finished the 220-pound match on Friday night with a 12-point dual lead.

It was anything but comfortable.

Minot won the final six matches, scoring 33 unanswered points including a pair of Blue Jay forfeits in a 45-24 West Region wrestling victory at the JHS gym.

“Jamestown’s got some quality kids and we wrestled well against them at certain weights,” Minot coach Nolan Spooner said. “It helps to get a couple forfeits. Overall, we did a nice job.”
