Local Sports Roundup: Jimmie women win in Florida

University of Jamestown women’s basketball overcame a sluggish shooting performance Saturday in suburban Miami, Fla.

The ninth-ranked Jimmies defeated Florida Memorial University 57-50 in the FMU Thanksgiving Tournament after converting just 19 of 60 shots from the field for 32 percent. The saving grace for the Jimmies appeared to be defense, holding the Lions to 30 percent shooting (21 of 70) in Miami Gardens.

Jamestown’s senior starting backcourt of McKayla Orr (14 points), Bryn Woodside (13) and Paige Emmel (13) each hit double figures in scoring to lead the Jimmies. Emmel (9 rebounds), Marina Nowak (9) and Jenna Doyle (8) cleaned up the glass for Jamestown, combining for 26 boards.

Jamestown led 48-35 after three quarters before being outscored 15-9 in the final frame. The Jimmies improved to 7-2 and will face (RV) Keiser University (4-4) in the tournament today.

Keiser (Fla.) fell to defending NAIA Division II national champion Marian University (Ind.) 86-56 during Friday’s play in Miami Gardens. Marian University is 9-1.

The host team struck early against the Blue Jays at the Fergus Falls girls hockey invitational Friday.

Fergus Falls (Minn.) hung six goals on the scoreboard in the first period, en route to topping Jamestown High School 9-0. The Blue Jays (0-2) face Detroit Lakes today at 2 p.m.

“We had four or five really good scoring chances, we just didn’t get the bounces around the net that we needed,” Blue Jay girls hockey coach Andy Fitzgerald said.

The Blue Jays put nine shots on goal but were outshot 52-9. Valley City High School product Erin Anderson made 43 saves for the Blue Jays in goal.

“We gave up a couple goals early, but after that we played well,” Fitzgerald said. “The girls started creating chances and gettings some shots on net, and were gaining some confidence.

“Hopefully we can take that into (today) against Detroit Lakes and get it going right from the start.”
