MANDAN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Another 51 minutes of hockey and another victory for the Jamestown High Blue Jay girls team.
The Blue Jays (2-0) took to the road and defeated Mandan (0-2) 5-0 Friday night at the Pepsi All Seasons Arena, led by the second shutout in as many games by senior netminder and team captain Carissa Finck.
The win comes just four days after one of the landmark victories in JHS program history — a 2-0 defeat at John L. Wilson Arena in Jamestown Monday night over traditional state powerhouse Fargo North.
It was truly a team effort in terms of the scoring in the win over the Braves, as five different Blue Jays scored goals and eight total Blue Jays registered points.
Senior Steph Kamlitz and sophomore Torri Kamlitz each had a goal and an assist. Senior Amber Schaak netted her second unassisted goal on the young season on a breakaway during the first period.
Eighth grader Elly Millender and senior Larissa Wiest had the other two goals in the victory.
The Blue Jays now get set for a two-game home stand next week, facing challenges from the likes of Bismarck on Tuesday and Fargo South on Thursday. Both games are scheduled for 7 p.m. puck drops at Wilson Arena.
“It’s just two of 23,” said head coach Brad Schaak, referring to the number of games still remaining on the Blue Jays schedule. “We’ve got to fix some of the mistakes we made that won’t go over as easily against teams like Bismarck and (Fargo) South.”
