Firebirds win season opener after overnight delay

Ray Maloney Journal Sports Editor
Jamestown quarterback Matthew Grounds (7) is dragged down by Devils Lake’s Blake Prozinski (3) after a short gain in the first quarter of Friday’s season opener at Roller Field. Jamestown scored on the drive to take a 7-0 lead before the game was halted because of rain and lightning in the area. The game resumed on Saturday and the Firebirds came back to win the game 22-19. Devils Lake will play Mandan at home on Friday.
