There would be no District 5 three-peat for the girls of LaMoure-Litchville-Marion, but the main objective is still on the table. After falling to Carrington in the District 5 tournament semifinals on Saturday at the Jamestown Civic Center, the Loboes bounced back and topped the Midkota Mustangs 63-35 in the first of two Region 3-qualifying games on Monday. The Region 3 tournament tips off back at the Civic Center on Monday. Pairings for the tourney await tonight's conclusion of the District 6 tournament in Ashley.
It wasn't a high-flying scorer, or a flashy offense that won Monday's District 5 girls basketball championship game. Hard work was the hero. Defensive prowess in the final 30 seconds lifted Carrington over seventh-ranked Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier 37-35 inside the Jamestown Civic Center.
Barnes County North embodied the concept of team at the Jamestown Civic Center on Saturday. Playing without junior starting point guard Tess Scott, freshman Clara Wieland's number was called by BCN coach Tracy Heinze, and Wieland didn't disappoint. Her buzzer-beating 3-pointer in transition with no time left on the clock kept BCN's season alive, as the Bison defeated Oakes 50-47 in loser-out play of the District 5 girls basketball tournament. The Bison will face Ellendale tonight at 6 with a spot in the Region 3 tournament hanging in the balance.
It wasn't exactly how Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier wanted to start the postseason, but a win's a win. The seventh-ranked Rebels found a way to survive the Ellendale Cardinals during Saturday's semifinals of the District 5 girls basketball tournament at the Jamestown Civic Center.
Carrington was on cruise control to start Saturday's District 5 girls basketball tournament semifinal against ninth-ranked LaMoure-Litchville-Marion. Then came the third period. Eight minutes of what Carrington coach Andy Braaten and the rest of the Cardinals hope was just an aberration as the postseason continues today inside the Jamestown Civic Center. The Cards went 0-for-12 from the field and didn't score a single point in the third, but miraculously still owned a 29-26 lead over the defending district and Region 3 champions. Carrington had weathered the storm.
It was like someone flipped a switch at John L. Wilson Arena on Tuesday. Jamestown’s boys hockey team was cruising after two periods against visiting Mandan, outshooting the Braves 26-18...
MINOT — Jamestown knew all about Minot High senior forward Cassie Askvig entering Friday's West Region girls basketball game at Magic City Campus. So the Blue Jays guarded her diligently. But in double- and triple- teaming Minot's two-time all-state selection, Jamestown left the Majettes' shooters open all night.
Solid special teams play and a 30-save performance from senior goalie Wyatt Bonnell denied Jamestown a regular-season win over Bismarck Century in boys hockey for yet another year. Bonnell and the Patriots held the Blue Jays scoreless on Thursday at Wilson Arena, as they left the Buffalo City with a 3-0 victory in West Region hockey. Jamestown's last victory over Bismarck Century came in December of 2007.
The Blue Jay boys hockey team gave the No. 2 team in the East Region a battle in West Fargo on Thursday. Jamestown sophomore goalie Matthew Schneider collected 39 saves and senior captain Austin Rene scored his team-leading 17th goal of the season. But the Jays wound up falling 5-1 to the Packers in a game that was closer than what the score would indicate. West Fargo—who would push its current unbeaten streak to 10 games—led just 2-1 to start the third period, before scoring a flurry of three goals over the final six minutes.
Over the past 45 days the Edgeley-Kulm-Montpelier girls basketball team has been hard at work redefining itself. A team that at one time struggled to match the confidence of its opponents, the Rebels are now one of the hottest teams in all of Class B. E-K-M is riding an 11-game winning streak, and after last Thursday's 51-46 victory over previously third-ranked LaMoure-Litchville-Marion in LaMoure, the Rebels have more than threatened a full-blown power shift in Region 3.
