The Jamestown High School football team had to prove themselves to be road warriors once again, this week instead of Grand Forks, Bill Nelson the head football coach for the Jamestown Blue Jays would have their sights set on the Watford City Wolves.
Their vision must have been strong because the game ended with a final of 46-6 in Jamestown’s favor. The Blue Jays are now 2-1 on the road and 3-1 overall. The Wolves drop to 1-4 on the season. Jamestown got on the board after just 3 minutes in the first with Tyson Jorrison scoring on a 22-yard reception. PAT Attempt was missed but the Blue Jays led 6-0. Later in the first quarter Sam Mayhair capped off a long drive that included a 52-yard wide receiver Nate Walz catch with a 3-yard touchdown. Extra point problems startled the Blue Jays again this time the PAT attempt was blocked making the lead 12-0.
The Wolves of Watford City wouldn’t go down without a fight in the first half. Quarterback Paco Montenegro scrambled 22 yards down to 1st and goal on the 1-yard line. Running back Josh Chavez would score on a run to make it 12-6 early in the 2nd quarter after the Wolves failed to convert a 2-point conversion play. Walz would find the endzone on a 20-yard pass from quarterback Ryan Kallenbach making the score at halftime 20-6 after Jorrison scored on a 2-point conversion.
In the 2nd half, Jamestown would create separation from Watford City. In the 3rd quarter, Mayhair and Jorrison would both score on a pair of runs. Walz would score early in the 4th quarter and Liam Frey would score with 4:32 in the 4th quarter bringing the final score to 46-6.
