An absence of aggression hurt the Blue Jays on the mat Thursday night at home.
After going 4-1 last weekend at the Multiple Dual Tournament in Grand Forks, Jamestown coach Greg White said he was hoping the Blue Jays were going to carry that same intensity with them into yesterday’s dual versus Mandan.
Jamestown High School dominated the Blue-White dual on Tuesday night in Valley City.
The team result was expected due to the Blue Jays’ superior depth and overall skill level. They finished with a score of 141.20, posting the top seven all-around scores.
Down by two goals starting the third period, the Blue Jays battled back.
But Minot pounced on a turnover in the Blue Jays’ end late in the game and escaped with a 3-2 West Region hockey victory over Jamestown High School on Saturday night at Wilson Arena.
