The weather may have forced the Jefferson City Jays and Helias Crusaders to postpone one game each this week, but the change may have had a silver lining. It gave the teams extra time to prepare for two tough games this weekend.

Jefferson City and Helias will each get a chance at the DeSmet Spartans and Cape Girardeau Notre Dame Bulldogs in the four-game Central Bank Shootout to be held at Rackers Fieldhouse.

Jays coach David Fox said the event, which started in the mid-1990s, has always boasted top teams, and this year is no different.
