Blue Jay Roundup: Eagles fly past Jays
Fargo Davies High School senior forward Kylie Schafer scored a hat trick 21 minutes into the game as the Eagles defeated Jamestown 9-0 on Thursday night at John L. Wilson Arena.
"They're a good team," said Blue Jay girls hockey coach Andy Fitzgerald. "They're going to compete for a state championship this year. It'll be interesting to see them and some of the other top three or four teams compete in a couple weeks in Grand Forks."
Schafer scored off a feed from freshman forward Joise Froslie 6 minutes, 37 seconds into the game. She later added a power-play goal from senior blue liner Emily Anderson. She secured a hat trick off another power-play goal. Schafer now has 17 goals on the year.
"She's a good skater," Fitzgerald said. "She's blazing fast and has a good shot. She has all the skills to be a good hockey player, one of the better players we've seen all year."
Sophomore forward Faith Morris scored two goals in the second period to increase her total to 13 on the year. Sophomore forward Katie Matter also added a pair of goals, junior forward Ali Matter and Reilly Mach each scored a goal.
"It's one of the things that make up their good team," Fitzgerald said. "They got a couple really good players but they're solid up and down their whole lineup. They have a lot of depth and all three lines skate really well."
Jamestown could not get a shot on goal during the first period but managed to get seven shots over the last 34 minutes.
The Blue Jays (2-16-2) will finish their season with Mandan (6-12-1) and Devils Lake (3-15-0).

Boys fall at Century
The Blue Jay boys hockey team went into the locker room trailing 1-0 at Bismarck Century but could not hold it off any longer.
The Patriots scored four goals in the second as the Patriots defeated the Blue Jays 8-1 Thursday night.
"There's a reason why they're the No. 1 team in the west region," said Jamestown boys hockey coach Matt Stockert.
Senior forward Isaiah Thomas scored the lone goal in the first period off a feed from junior forward Kirklan Irey. But the Patriots outshot the Blue Jays 22-8 during the first period.
"We did a pretty good job of doing things we needed to do," Stockert said.
Senior forward Casey Foss, Thomas, Irey and senior forward Drew Stoddart scored in the second period to extend the lead to 5-0.
"It all starts with having a sense of urgency and we didn't have that tonight," Stockert said. "I don't know if there's a lesson to be learned here."
The Patriots added two more goals in the third, before senior forward Leo Halko put Jamestown on the scoresheet.
The Blue Jays have their final home game of the season against Mandan on Tuesday starting at 7:30 p.m.
"I think it will be a good hockey game on Tuesday," Stockert said. "They aren't a bad hockey team."
