Despite not scoring any in the second period, the Jamestown High School boys hockey team managed to take it to Dickinson Saturday evening at the Midgets' barn.

Jamestown topped Dickinson 7-1 to improve to 7-2 in the conference and 7-3 overall. The Jays will be back in action next week starting Tuesday with a road tilt against Mandan. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7:30 p.m.

A flurry of scoring in the first period by Jamestown made up for the fact that no Blue Jay could seem to find the back of the net in the second.

Jarrett Zalumskis got the Jays started with a goal coming off assists from Hunter Nelson and Brooks Roaldson, less than three minutes into the opening period. Roaldson doubled the Jays ' score seven minutes later with an unassisted goal he slid behind Merik Low.

The Midgets' one goal came at 10:11 in the first when Kaeden Krieg found open space off passes from Cole Kadrmas and Ryker Klaman,


Jamestown stole back the momentum as Ashton Stockert and Conner McLachlan capitalized on their opportunities and made it 4-1 at the end of one.

Three unanswered from Joe Cummings and Easton Romsdal sealed the deal for the Blue Jays.

Netminder Brode Hillstrom made 18 saves.

Krueger, Blue Jays net seven against Midgets

Ellie Krueger finished what she started Saturday afternoon up in Dickinson.

The freshman helped lead the Jamestown High School girls hockey team to a solid 7-2 over the Midgets to improve to 6-4 in the state standings. The Midgets are currently sitting in the No. 10 spot at 2-7.

Jamestown will be back in action on Tuesday hosting West Fargo at 7 p.m.

A mere two minutes into the first period, Krueger got loose and capitalized on an assist from Bernadette Belzer to put the Jays up 1-0. Dickinson would end up tying the Jays with a goal from Shay Finneman but the Midgets had no defense against the Jays' four-goal performance in the second period.


Krueger, Hannah Soulis, Alexis Kirkeby and Savannah Potratz all drilled the biscuit past Tierney Yoder in the second period to make it a 5-1 game entering the second break. All four goals came in seven minutes, 30 seconds.

While Sierra Raatz got one more on the board for the Midgets to open up the third period, the home team had no answers for the Jays' stout defense and solid goalkeeping. Olivia Sorlie, a sophomore netminder for the Jays, made 15 saves against the Dickinson offense.

Yoder wasn't so lucky as she let in goals from Belzer and Krueger before the third finished out. Krueger's third goal of the game iced it with just over six minutes left to play.

The freshman is ranked eighth in the state in total scoring with 10 goals and six assists for 16 total points.
