At Jamestown


(  The UJ women’s soccer team crept above the .500 mark following a 2-1 win over Mount Marty (S.D.) College Wednesday evening at Jimmie Turf Field.

In moving their overall season record to 6-5, Jamestown also improved to 5-1 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference, bouncing back from their first conference loss last weekend.

Gabriella Diarte (SR/North Ogden, Utah) (6th minute) and Kamryn Fiscus (FR/Yakima, Wash.) (31st) minute supplied first-half goals as UJ took a 2-0 lead after 45 minutes. Jamestown maintained much of the offensive possession in the first half, getting off seven shots to the Lancers’ one. Four of the Jimmies’ shots were on target.

Kenyonique Thompson scored for Mount Marty in the 50th minute to cut the lead in half. Once again, the Jimmies kept putting pressure on the Lancers, taking 12 shots (four on target) while allowing just two (one on target).

Jamestown hosts a non-conference match Thursday against Providence University College of Manitoba at 3:30 p.m.


(  Two second-half goals helped the University of Jamestown men’s soccer team build on a 1-0 lead, and the Jimmies defeated Mount Marty (S.D.) College 3-0 at Jimmie Turf Field Wednesday night.

The win improves UJ’s overall record to 4-6 and 2-3 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference.

Jamestown had a chance to take the lead in the fifth minute, but Aaron Pike (SO/Milton Keynes, England)’s penalty kick hit off the left post and deflected back into play.

Karl Gatiramu (FR/Nairobi, Kenya) took a pass from Diego Valle (SO/Yucaipa, Calif.) in the 32nd minute and buried the ball in the back of the net to make it 1-0. A little over three minutes later, Mount Marty had its best scoring chance of the half. A through ball to Fernando Negrete found him with just the goalkeeper to beat, but Negrete’s flick attempt rolled into the post, away from the net.

Gatiramu was awarded the Jimmies’ second penalty kick of the half in the 44th minute, but his attempt was saved by Gabriel Ivlev. The rebound came back out to Gatiramu, and his follow-up shot was also turned away by Ivlev.

Pike atoned for his earlier miss from the spot with a goal in the 61st minute, giving UJ a 2-0 lead.

Valle earned his second assist of the night on JJ Mowrey (SR/Findlay, Ohio)’s 74th minute goal which put Jamestown ahead 3-0.

Jake Askew (SR/Rotherham, England) needed to make just one save to preserve the clean sheet.

Next up for the Jimmies is a non-conference match Thursday against Providence University College of Manitoba at 5:30 p.m.
