BISMARCK — Hockey is a game of seconds and Bernadette Belzer used almost all of them Thursday evening.

With two seconds left in the Jamestown High School girls hockey team's tilt against Bismarck Century, Belzer got one past Century's netminder to give the Jays their first 2-0 start since the 2012-13 season.

The Blue Jays took down the Patriots 4-3 to move to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the conference. Jamestown is slated to be back on the road on Tuesday at West Fargo. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7 p.m. at West Fargo's Sports Arena.

Final stats were not available when the Jamestown Sun went to press.

The Jamestown High School sophomore whirled and twirled and tumbled her way to four first-place finishes at the Jays' first meet of the season Thursday evening at the Jamestown Gymnastics Club.

The Blue Jays topped Aberdeen Central 140.800-128.750. Jamestown will be back in action on Friday in Dickinson. The Jays' first conference meet is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Skari took home top honors in vault, balance beam, floor and the all-around. Skari didn't record a score lower than 9.2 except in bars where she came in second with an 8.35. Blue Jay senior Blair Arbuckle won the uneven bars contest with a score of 8.8.

The Blue Jays had at least three gymnasts place in the top five in every event. The hometown squad was the most dominant on vault where they notched a score of 36.500.

"It was a great first meet," Jamestown head coach Bre Carlson said. "I am proud of our girls."
