Patriots power past Jays in sweep

The Bismarck Century Patriots weren’t kind to the visiting Blue Jay basketball teams on Tuesday night.

The Jamestown girls fell to the No. 1-ranked Patriots 62-45, while the boys were defeated by the No. 3-ranked Pats 88-45.

Jamestown returns to the court next Tuesday at Bismarck St. Mary’s.

Girls

Jordyn Jossart was too much for the Blue Jay girls to handle.

The Bismarck Century junior guard let loose seven 3-pointers and scored a game-high 29 points, helping the Patriots move to 9-0 with a 62-45 win over the Blue Jays.

Jamestown (4-4) kept things interesting in the first half, taking a late 23-21 lead behind junior guard Samantha Johnson’s third 3-pointer before the break. Johnson ended the night with 10 points.

But the Patriots, fueled by Jossart’s fourth trey of the opening 18 minutes, closed the half with a 9-1 run and led 30-24 at the break.

Trey No. 6 by Jossart opened up Century’s advantage to 10 points at 42-32 with 11 minutes, 30 second left to play and the Patriots would coast to the victory from there.

Paige Peterson led the Blue Jays with 14 points, while Addie Eamon chipped in 13.

Boys

Century’s Tyler Rudolph and Ramey Schatz led 11 Patriots in scoring with 15 points each, en route to helping the Patriots move to 8-0 with an 88-45 victory.

Scott Nelson scored the opening 4 points for the Blue Jays, helping the Jays to an early 4-3 advantage. But it was all Patriots after that.

They used a 12-0 run to open the lead to 15-4, and the home team would finish the first 18 minutes on a 26-3 run to balloon their advantage to 46-20 at the break.

Nick Fuchs hit three 3-pointers in the game and led the Blue Jays, who fell to 3-5 overall, with 16 points. The Pats hit 9 treys in the game, led by three from Dalton Feeney who finished with 11 points.

The Blue Jays were outrebounded 37-29 and committed 23 turnovers to Century’s 8. The Jays were held to under 35 percent from the field (17 of 49), while the Patriots shot close to 50 percent (33 of 68).
