HARRISON FLATS — Jacob Schroeder scored 19 points to lead the Jaguars past the Warriors in a North Star League game.

“We played with more energy tonight than I was expecting,” said Kootenai coach Mike Maitland, whose team was playing its fifth game in six days. “In the middle two quarters, we played right with them. The first quarter was ugly, but we played right with them in the final three quarters.”
