Jamestown High School softball banged out 12 runs and 21 hits off Mandan on Tuesday, May 7, as the Blue Jays defeated the Braves 12-5 in the opening game of a West Region doubleheader. Mandan salvaged a split in the nightcap, 11-8.
The Jays' Rachel Schiele was arguably the difference maker in game 1. The sophomore went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and five RBIs. The volleyball libero and state champion gymnast had one double and one triple coming into the contest.
Payton Gall, McKenna Jackson, Rachel Woodley and Ella Roaldson also posted a multi-hit game. Gall started in the circle and allowed two earned runs (three unearned), nine hits, four walks and punched out six batters.
In game 2, three unearned runs by the Blue Jays became the difference as Mandan won by three.
Jamestown's power showed in the nightcap, however, as Jenna Fischer hit two home runs and Gall recorded her second homer of the doubleheader. Fischer finished with a game-high four RBIs.
The Blue Jays host Bismarck Legacy on Thursday, a rescheduled doubleheader from April 30, starting at 4:30 p.m. from Trapper Field.
Century goes by Jays in second half
Kate Weigum scored two goals for Bismarck Century, including the game-winning goal in the 65th minute, as the Patriots defeated Jamestown girls soccer 2-1 on Tuesday, May 7, at the Bismarck Community Bowl.
Weigum opened the scoring in the third minute, while Jamestown's Payton Rudnick also scored in the first half, sending the contest to a 1-all halftime score.
Just like in Saturday's Jays-Patriots game, the totals were pretty even. Century held a 6-5 and 5-4 advantage in shots on goal and keeper saves, respectively, while corner kicks was 2-2.
Jamestown heads back to the Bismarck Community Bowl on Saturday for a 2 p.m. contest with Bismarck High.
