JAMESTOWN — The University of Jamestown has now played in its tenth all-time game and had a chance to win it but a four-goal third period ended that in a 6-2 loss to Midland University on Sunday, Oct. 30, at John L. Wilson Arena.

“That second period and even that first period was probably some of the best hockey we’ve played, second period for sure,” Jimmies head coach Amber Schaack said. “We were back to playing our game that we know how to play, our passing was much better. You can definitely see the confidence building in our girls. So, from the first time we played these guys to now, huge strides.”

The first period was all Warriors (8-3) as Callie Maguire skated down the left side of the ice and sniped one past Jimmies’ goalie Makenzie Gibson to make it 1-10 with 14:15 to go in the opening frame. The Jimmies (2-8) did not get their first shot on goal until 11:05 to go in the period. The Warriors added another one with 4:13 to go in the first period when Kamryn Hayhurst cleaned up a rebound to make it 2-0.

The Jimmies cut into the lead midway through the second period when Crystal Wale fed Annika Braun who was standing at the top of the crease and put it into the waning net to make it 2-1 with 10:22 to go in the period. The Jimmies had a chance to tie it up when Gracie Fisher and Cambree Martens got in on a two-on-o but Fisher’s shot was right into Warriors’ goalie Kayla Bailey’s chest. A few minutes after that, the Warriors scored to make it 3-1. Later in the period, the Jimmies drew a tripping call, and while the action continued the shot was spilled in front where Chloe Gauthier was able to poke it home to cut the deficit to 3-2 with 1:50 to go in the second period.

“We talked about it in the locker room, about having a short-term memory and forgetting about it and bouncing back,” Schaack said. “But again, it’s going to take the experience of being in games like this and knowing how to react and having the right mindset going into the rest of the game.”

The Jimmies are back in action at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, when they go to the University of Colorado-Boulder.
