The Blue Jays needed just 44 points to get past the Majettes in girls basketball on Saturday in Minot.

Jamestown senior Bailey Lamp was back in action and nailed her first field goal attempt of the season early in the first half, helping the Blue Jays sail 44-36 over Minot. Lamp, who had been recovering from an ACL injury suffered early in the Class A volleyball season, finished with 10 points.

Lamp was one of four Jays connecting from 3-point land in the opening 18 minutes, as Jamestown grabbed a 25-12 lead at the half. Blue Jay sophomore Courtney Peterson, who scored a team-high 11 points, Brandi Harrison and Genna Bruns also splashed home triples in the frame.

Minot committed 14 turnovers in the first half. Trailing by as many as 15 in the second half, the Majettes were able to get back within seven at 33-26 with 7 minutes, 53 seconds left to play.

Kali Askvig and Allie Nelson both hit treys for Minot to help the team threaten. Askvig and Evie Reynolds each finished with 11 points to lead the home team. Reynolds scored all 11 of her points after the break.

But Jamestown wouldn't let the Majettes get any closer. Genna Bruns and Megan Gaffaney each finished with eight points for the Blue Jays.

Jamestown, currently the seventh team in the West Region, improved to 7-8 overall and 6-7 in the region. Minot fell to 1-16 overall.

The Blue Jays host Williston (3-11, 2-11 WR) on Friday. Jamestown defeated the Coyotes 54-37 on the road last month.
