Jamestown found an answer in the second period, but it wasn't nearly enough. Haley Schnaidt scored her second goal of the season to trim the deficit to two scores, but Minot eventually prevailed 7-1 on Friday night at Wilson Arena. Schnaidt's goal was assisted by Kylie Mitchell and Haley Hillstrom. It was Mitchell's first point, and Hillstrom's seventh. "Our second line really came out and had a nice game," Jamestown coach Justin Connell said. "Haley (Schnaidt), Chaya (Joersz) and Kylie Mitchell were up to the task.
Valley City's Parker Larson took the fight to Jamestown's Ethan Bowman on Friday night. Bowman, a 106-pound eighth-grader, had yet to give up a point to Larson in two matches this season, but allowed four quick points and found himself trailing. "I didn't take the same intensity to him that he brought to me," Bowman said. "I knew I still had two periods, but I should have taken the match to him right away." Nonetheless, Bowman responded, taking the lead in the second period en route to an 8-4 decision at the JHS gym.
Jamestown continued its third-period assault on Tuesday night. The Blue Jays were in the midst of a scoreless affair after two periods with nonconference foe Fargo North, when a quick goal paved the way for a 3-0 triumph at Wilson Arena. Jamestown was coming off a 3-1 win over Williston in which it trailed 1-0 going into the third. The Blue Jays did it again against North, though they never trailed. "We won that first faceoff (in the third), went down and scored," said Jamestown junior Gage Thompson, who had two assists.
I'm about to contribute to the problem. I can't figure out what is worse: the actual DeflateGate, the constant analysis of it or the oft-repeated "Are we making too big a deal out of this?" which could be DeflateGate-Gate all on its own. Call this DeflateGate-Gate-Gate. I take issue with 10-minute segments that are entirely devoted to whether or not people are making too big of an issue out of DeflateGate. For those who have spent the past two weeks on a secluded island away from technology (I'm jealous), Deflate-gate is one of the more clever of the terrible gate names that often eat up t
Amber Schaack thinks she can play better. Her teammates were pretty happy with her play on Saturday. Schaack, a Jamestown High grad, buried the eventual game-winner with less than eight minutes to go, as Concordia College held on to beat Augsburg 2-1 in Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference action at home. Schaack took a pass from teammate Jessie Kongelf, skated between the circles and drove it to the upper right corner for the win, giving the Cobbers a second consecutive weekend without a loss. "I'm definitely a lot more confident with the puck this year," said Schaack, a former M

A look at the West Region girls basketball standings shows Thursday's affair between Minot and Jamestown should have been a convincing victory for the second-ranked Majettes. But Jamestown, in last place, scrapped and battled every second of the way before succumbing in Minot's 42-29 triumph at the JHS gym. "It's the WDA -- there are a lot of good athletes and coaches in this league," Minot coach Bernie Wasser said.
