Blue Jays Roundup: Grant Lunde scores game-winner in overtime

Jan. 19—JAMESTOWN — Grant Lunde is likely going to go to bed Friday night with a big smile on his face.

That's what happens when you win it for your team in overtime.

Lunde, a junior for the Jamestown High School boys hockey team, scored the game-winning goal to defeat Minot 3-2. The Jays will close out the week with a home tilt against Williston on Saturday at 3:15 p.m.

The Jays struck first in the conference showdown with Tyson Jorissen netting one off an assist from Nate Walz and Jackson Maddock at the 6:16 mark of the first period. Jakoby Traut followed up Jorissen's score with another in the second period to make it 2-1 Blue Jays after two periods.

Minot's Mackley Morelli got loose in the third period and scored an unassisted goal at the 14:11 mark to knot things up at two goals apiece.

Time in the penalty box hurt the Magicians on Friday. The Magi collected four penalties for 11 minutes while the Jays had just one minor assessed to them the entire game.

Minot's Blays Ostrom made 25 saves while Carter Borg made 43 stops.

A mere five points separated the Blue Jay and Dickinson boys basketball teams after 18 minutes of play.

After 36 minutes, it was a 23-point difference.

Jamestown dropped 91-68 to the Midgets Friday night to move to 1-6 in conference and 3-9 overall. Chance No. 8 at a conference win will come on Tuesday for head coach Jason Carroll and his squad. Jamestown will be at Century on Jan. 23 for a 7:45 p.m. tip-off.

"It's a little bit frustrating because I keep telling these kids that the things we need to do to win are the things teams are doing to us to win basketball games," Carroll said. "Dickinson did a great job at penetrating and kicking out for wide-open 3s and they hit a lot of wide-open 3s.

"We knew they were good shooters and the focus was supposed to be to run them off that line and we didn't do a very good job at that," he said. "Congratulations to Dickinson. They took advantage of the mistakes we made and made a lot of wide-open 3s."

While Dickinson had the hot hand on Friday, the Jays did a nice job of keeping things close in the first half, largely thanks to a 19-point half from senior Dalton Lamp. Lamp has been sidelined for a few games with an injury but he showed no ill effects on Friday eventually ending up with 27 points.

"He really came back tonight and looked good," Carroll said of Lamp. "He played well."

Dickinson's game really just picked up steam in the second half, and the Jays' — plagued by foul trouble — just couldn't keep up.

"There's some things we need to learn to do a lot better," Carroll said. "It doesn't matter what team we play against ... until we do those things we're going to struggle."
