Sep. 17—A lucky few deflections were the difference Thursday night at Jamestown’s Rotary Field.
The Jamestown High School soccer squad lost to visiting Bismarck Century 1-0, to drop to 3-8 in the West Region standings while Bismarck Century improved to 6-3-2 in the conference, good enough to hold to the No. 3 position. Minot (9-0-1) and Bismarck High (7-1-2) lead the WDA.
Another scoreless half put the Jays in a good position heading into the second, but with 15 minutes remaining in regulation, Brooks Turner booted in a corner kick to make it a 1-0 game. All eight of the Jays’ losses have been one-score games.
Jamestown’s chance at win No. 4 will come on Saturday as the team is slated to travel to Williston Saturday. The Jays previously topped the Coyotes 5-1 on Aug. 28. Williston will be looking for their first win of the season on Saturday. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m.
Sophomore goalkeeper Ryan Larson saved five of Century’s six shots on goal Thursday. Jamestown recorded five shots on target in the 80 minutes of play.
