BISMARCK — The Jamestown High School boys soccer team just ran out of time on Saturday.

The Blue Jays came up just shy of Bismarck Century in the second round of the WDA tournament. Century wound up defeating Brandi Harty's squad 2-1 to advance to the state tournament for the 28th consecutive year.

Jamestown finished the regular season at 5-7-2 in the conference standings to earn the Blue Jays the fifth seed entering the WDA tournament.

The Jays cruised through the opening round of the regional tournament defeating Dickinson 4-0 to earn a spot in the state qualifier for the third time in three years.

Century struck first with a goal coming at the nine-minute mark from Parker Hopfauf.

The Century defense and goalkeeper, Brayden Underhill, managed to keep the Blue Jays scoreless through the next 60 minutes of play but a penalty kick by the Blue Jays spoiled the Patriots' chances at a clean sheet.

Iddi Ramadhahi made good on a penalty kick to tie things up with 11 minutes remaining in regulation.

It looked like things were going to overtime until, with seven minutes left on the clock, Abel Cramer snuck one past Grant Lunde to give Century the win.
