Magi soccer powers past Jamestown

JAMESTOWN — Tuesday’s trip to Jamestown was all business for the Minot High School boys soccer team as they dismantled the Blue Jays, 7-0.

It didn’t take long for Minot High to catch fire as Jordin Lennon drew first blood in the fourth minute, scoring on a ball that was assisted by junior Noah Schmidt. It took 13 minutes for the freshman to strike again, scoring off another assist by Schmidt to give the Magi a 2-0 lead entering halftime.

Things only got worse for the Blue Jays in the second half. After assisting the first two goals, Schmidt found some daylight of his own and capitalized with a goal in the 41st minute. Sophomore Kam Foley got in on the action 19 minutes later, scoring on a ball assisted by senior Jaden Francis.

Minot never took its foot off the gas, as the Magi went on to score another three goals in the final 16 minutes to complete a dominant 7-0 victory. Lennon and Foley each finished with two goals while Schmidt finished with a goal and two assists in the win.

The only thing that could stop the Magi attack was the final whistle. Minot finished with a monstrous 23 shots (12 on goal) compared to Jamestown’s seven shots (five on goal).

All five of those Jamestown shots on goal met the same faith as Minot goalkeeper Braden Cochran never allowed the Blue Jays to claw their way back into the match. The junior totaled five saves in his first shutout performance of the season.

Tuesday’s victory marks a much needed win for a Minot team that entered the match desperate to rebound from a 5-0 loss to Century on Sept. 4 at home.

The Magi have little time to celebrate, though, as they prepare for their upcoming road match against Mandan on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Majettes golf falls behind, takes fourth at Legacy Invite

BISMARCK — The Minot High girls golf team suffered a slow start at the Legacy Invite Tuesday at Riverwood Golf Course in Bismarck. Century won the invitational with a team total of 321, followed by Williston (341), Mandan (342), Minot High (347) and Bismarck St. Mary’s (359) to make up the Top 5.

Senior Joelle Fettig finished with an 89 followed by junior Jaci Jones with a 90. Finishing up the varsity scores were Savanah Britnell and Sydney Berg finishing at 97 and 98, respectively.
