A shot drilled into the back of the net by Alexis Kirkeby wasn't enough to get the win for the Jamestown High School girls hockey team Tuesday night.

With 5:30 gone in the second period, Kirkeby, a junior forward for the Blue Jays, slid one past West Fargo United goalie Maggie Seeley off an assist from Ayra Mickelson to make it a 3-1 game.

An explosive four-goal third period sealed the deal for West Fargo. The home team took the tilt 8-1. Jamestown's next test will be Friday at 5 p.m. against Minot at Wilson Arena. Jamestown will host Williston on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. to wrap up the week.

Olivia Sorlie stood tall in goal for the Blue Jays, recording 37 saves off of the 45 shots on goal. Jamestown managed 14 shots on target.
