Monday Morning Rewind
Posted 9/11/17 (Mon)
Things got started Tuesday in Steele with a five setter between Kidder County and Harvey-Wells County. The Wolves took the first set 25-21 before dropping to straight to HWC. On the verge of elimination Kidder County squeezed out another close one, 25-22. In set five Harvey controlled the tempo and walked away with a 3-2 victory. Jaye Fike led the way for the visitors with six kills and Megan Thompson was our Cass Clay player of the game, finishing with four kills, four blocks and six aces!
No team has had a more impressive start to this season than the Jamestown Blue Jays. After sweeping the Bismarck Invitational they have stayed hot, and remained undefeated Thursday versus the defending state champion Century Patriots. Courtney Peterson amassed ten kills, a pair of aces and was again the offensive center piece for the Jays. McKayla Kurtz brought a lot of fire to the gym and played well enough to earn POG honors tallying six kills, including the match winner. Century impressed in the losing effort, and will be a tough task or whoever they face night in and night out. Megan Anderson led the Pats with nine kills and Lauren Ware and Katelyn Selensky each finished with seven.
Speaking of undefeated teams, Fargo Shanley kept the goose egg in the loss column Friday night in Watford City. After a six hour bus drive the Deacons wasted no time to find their legs and put points on the bored. Junior quarterback Kaden Kueneman finished with two rushing touchdowns and a 31-yard dime to Miles Wosick before leaving the game in the second quarter. The Wolves offense could not find a rhythm due in large part to being plagued by turnovers, penalties and a stout Deacon defense. Shanley won 25-0 and Watford City fell to 0-3 on the season.
Sunday at the bowl UMary came up just short of knocking off #9 Rocky Mountain College. Freshman and former Century Patriot Zack Jensen buried two goals; the first of the match and the equalizer in half two. But he was matched by the Battlin’ Bears’ Pablo Ferreira who also scored two in regulation and the golden goal in double OT to lock up the 3-2 RMC win.
