Results of the Blue Jay wrestling activity over the weekend.
Slow second period derails Jays girls hockey squad.
The third period wasn't kind to the Jamestown High School boys hockey team on Friday night. After keeping high-powered Century at bay the first two periods, the Patriots put four goals on Jamestown goalie Brian Wenzel in the third, leading to a 5-1 West Region win at VFW Sports Center. Wenzel was spectaculer most of the night, stopping all 23 shots that came his way in the first period, as both both teams went scoreless. Jamestown struck first in the second period, scoring on a 5-on-3 when Kelton Beedy slipped the puck past Century goalie Max Barta 8 minutes, 23 seconds in.
Forfeits were abundant on Friday night at the Jamestown High School gymnasium. To Keith Shahin, however, that didn't make a difference. "A match is a match," Shahin said. "I'm just trying to fill wherever the team needs me right now." The Jamestown junior took a 13-6 decision over Bismarck St. Mary's David Schwartz as part of a dominating 57-24 victory in West Region play. The dual featured eight forfeits, six of which went in favor of the Blue Jays. "It's disappointing when you have to see a match like this," St. Mary's coach Rick Mathern said.
Larry Eslick likes how his pre-Christmas wrestling season is shaping up. The Jamestown High School wreslting coach again saw his team spilt 10 contested matches, though forfeits doomed the Blue Jays as Turtle Mountain took a 49-20 West Region win on Thursday. "I'm really fired up about how we wrestled," Eslick said. "We went 5-5 in 10 matches. I'm pretty happy with the way the kids responded." On paper, the match of the evening was supposed to be at 160, where two ranked 152-pounders went at it.
