Jamestown High School's Sam Krebs is slippery at 220 pounds. The sophomore wrestler produced four two-point reversals Friday night at home against Dickinson's Matthew Painter. The effort helped Krebs notch a 12-9 decision, receiving the loudest ovation of the night as his final reverse sewed up the victory with less than 10 seconds left in the match. The Blue Jays didn't throw in the towel during a 58-11 dual loss to the Midgets.
It wasn't the best score the team has turned in this season, but Jamestown High School gymnastics coach Dave Tews was happy with the performance. The Blue Jays put together a team score of 138.9 to the Braves' 125.2 on Thursday night in Mandan. It was another solid result following the latest round of adjustments. "That's a good score considering we were trying a lot of new things," Tews said. "Some new things don't always go right." Maggie Ridley's impressive season kept moving forward. The senior won the all around (34.15) and also won on foor (8.95).
Mariah Wick is the lone senior member of a youthful Medina-Pingree-Buchanan girls basketball team. But that certainly hasn't meant she's had to shoulder leadership duties alone. Wick and the Thunder topped Strasburg-Zeeland 48-11 on Tuesday during the Linton-HMB Shootout at the Jamestown Civic Center. It was M-P-B's 10th win of the season. "I don't feel like I'm the only senior," said Wick, who was one of a host of Thunder players battling the flu bug Tuesday. "We have so many girls that play above their age, and play above what grade they're in.
Jerzey Martin was playing with a chip on his shoulder Tuesday night at John L. Wilson Arena. The Dickinson senior forward spent plenty of time in the penalty box the last time his Midgets faced the Jamestown Blue Jays, but he was able to come through to help the Midgets earn the season split on Jamestown's home ice. Martin's 12th goal of the season tied the game at 1-all in the second period, and his 13th put the Midgets out front in the third, as Dickinson topped the Blue Jays 3-1. Just 10 days prior, Jamestown defeated the Midgets in Dickinson 3-2 in overtime.
Strasburg-Zeeland's boys basketball team hoisted the Region 3 championship trophy the last time it played inside the Jamestown Civic Center. It also had Mr. Basketball finalist Brody Nieuwsma. But a new team is beginning to find confidence this season, which was evident during Tuesday's Linton-HMB Shootout at the Civic Center. The Clippers controlled the second half in a 60-47 victory over Medina-Pingree-Buchanan.
Allan Pruss kicked down the door and the rest of the University of Jamestown men's hockey team bowled through it on Sunday at John L. Wilson Arena. An unassisted breakaway goal by the freshman forward ignited a four-goal second period by the 10th-ranked Jimmies against visiting University of Colorado. Jamestown cruised to victory No. 13 on the season with a 6-2 win over the Buffaloes. "We were just itching to get one," Pruss said. "We were buzzing pretty hard in the first. Once we got that first one it kind of opened up and paved the way for the rest of the team."
Easton Bennett was in fifth-grade the last time Jamestown High School defeated Minot in boys hockey. It's a streak of victories that extended to 19 straight games on Friday. Bennett, Minot's all-state senior forward, scored two of the Magicians' five goals in a dreadful third period for the Blue Jays. Minot eventually won 7-1 over Jamestown at John L. Wilson Arena.
Hockey can sometimes be a frustrating game to play. Jamestown High School outshot Mandan to the tune of 49-14 in boys hockey Tuesday night, but somehow came away holding the short end of the stick. The Braves scored twice in the third period on their home ice, handing the Blue Jays a tough 3-1 defeat in West Region hockey.
Bryce Edland said it was merely coincidence the basketball found his hands in the closing seconds of Saturday's Stutsman County tournament championship. But make no mistake. Carrington High School's best player was the one who buried the game winner. Edland's 18-foot jumper from the right corner splashed through the cylinder with 1.8 seconds left, lifting the 10th-ranked Cardinals past the Ellendale Cardinals 61-59 at the Jamestown Civic Center. The shot dashed Ellendale's bid at a third consecutive Stutsman tourney title.
Cole Burkle doomed Dickinson's day the moment he laced up his skates on Saturday at West River Ice Center. The Jamestown High School senior forward buried a penalty shot in overtime for his third goal of the game, powering the Blue Jays past Dickinson 3-2 in OT on the Midgets' home ice. Burkle's hat trick came just 24 hours after teammate Devin Hofmann's trick led the Jays over Bottineau-Rugby 6-1 at home.
