Of the four different athletic events that were on the Jamestown High School athletics schedule Tuesday evening, Haley Hillstrom's group of Blue Jay soccer players were the only ones who had the chance to take the field.

It was a little chilly but worth it to get the win.

The Blue Jays geared up for its third go-around down in the capital city, taking on Bismarck Century. The Jays wound up defeating the Patriots 2-0 to improve to 1-2-0 on the year.

The Patriots dropped to 1-2 overall.

Jamestown is slated to open up its home schedule on Friday against WDA favorite, Minot, at 7:30 p.m. The Majettes will be entering Friday's matchup at a perfect 2-0.


The Blue Jays found the back of the net early, with Hannah Murchie booting in a deep shot to break the ice right away in the first half.

Claire Frohlich followed up Murchie's goal with a score off a corner kick to secure the win. Brenna Hatch got the assist off Blue Jay goal No. 2.

Jamestown outshot the Patriots 8-6. Olivia Sorlie pitched her first shutout of the year, saving all six shots in goal.
