A strong opening period by Blue Jay boys hockey propelled it to a dominating 10-2 victory over Breckenridge-Wahpeton Thursday at Wilson Arena. The Blue Jays, who have struggled recently losing four of their last five games, outshot the Blades 42-28, which gave Jamestown some confidence, senior defenseman Connor Fuchs said. "I think we always want to keep control of the puck," Fuchs said. "When we have control of the puck, we play with a lot of confidence, and when we play with confidence we tend to play well and play as a team."
The Blue Jays started strong, but it wasn't enough to prevent an 8-2 defeat at the hands of Bismarck Century. An early goal by forward Alex Senf put the Blue Jays up first 3 minutes, 40 seconds into the opening period, providing an early spark. "It had us moving our feet and feeling excited to be up on Century," said Blue Jay forward Bryce Nelson. But the Patriots responded about 2 minutes later with a backhand goal from Kirklan Irey, and Century's Kade Rosten added another goal 12 minutes into the first period to hand the visitors a 2-1 lead.
Facing a 3-0 deficit entering the third period, the Blue Jays almost completed a comeback against the defending West Region champions. Blue Jay forward Parker Stockert led the rally with a power-play goal with 10 minutes,18 seconds left in the third after Baylee Hatlewick weaved through the Bismarck High Demons' defense and got the puck to Stockert. Blue Jay forward Devin Hofmann helped close the gap with an unassisted power-play goal with 7:51 remaining in the third period.
When Jamestown First Assembly brought its Kids On The Move program to Nickeus Park, children were in groups of about 10 enjoying their time learning fundamentals of wrestling, soccer and baseball. "It's really fun," said Eric Chea, 11, Jamestown. "You get to learn about God and have fun, too." Eric said he moved to Jamestown from North Carolina about two years ago. Since 2015, he started coming to Kids On The Move and also attends First Assembly. He said he has met new friends and enjoys sports such as soccer, football, wrestling and basketball.
