We got away from the free throw contest we were in for the first half. "They did a good job of keeping Casey from getting the ball inside. Jeremy (Yoder) had one of his best all-around games of the year." 'Dogs crush Spartan basketball zts West Valley League c to five games Jan. 29a 50-47 victory.

Lady Bulldogs nip Spartans By "n'avis Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Willamina High School girls basketball team beat Sheridan for the third time this season in a West Valley League contest Thursday Gaston, 65-49 night. The Lady Bulldogs outrebounded By Brian Wornath Correspondent, The Sun Bulldog center John Hofenbredl scored 20 points to lead Willamina to a 65-49 win Jan. 29 over Gaston. He hit 7 of 9 from the field and 6 of 10 from the free throw line. "We struggled at times, but I think it was similar to Western Mennonite the other night," said coach Jerry Buczynski. "We just kept working hard until t'mally we got some good things going for us in the last four or five minutes of the game. As long as we keep working hard we'll stay in some games." The Bulldogs started strong. Wil- lamina guard Jorma Kyllonen scored a bucket in the f'wst 15 seconds. Bulldog forward Will Kirk- ham added another two points less than a minute later. Gaston was held scoreless until almost halfway into the opening quarter. The 'Dogs lead by 10 points after one period. The Bulldog defense stiffened in the second period, intercepting Gas- ton passes. The 'Dogs held a 31-23 lead at the half. In the third quarter the Grey- hounds picked up their offense and the 'Dogs seemed to get a bit flustered. With four minutes left in the period, the 'Dogs defense and lead was starting to crumble and Gaston closed to within three points. But the 'Dogs held on to close the quarter with a 45-40 edge. By the fourth period Willamina's game got back on track and the 'Dogs ran away with a 16-point win. Willamina's strong rebounding played a big role in the game. The 'Dogs muscled the 'Hounds 33-26 on the boards. "We weren't moving the ball that well on defense in the first half...we were half a step late and they were making some good passes and get- ting some good shots off us, espe- cially inside," Buczynski said. "I think we got a little lax there (in the third quarter) and allowed them to be aggressive towards the hoop. We also gave up a few offen- sive rebounds, which you can't allow to happen," the coach added. By "ll'avls Moore Correspondent, The Sun The Santiam Christian Lady Eagles at least doubled Sheridan's scoring in every quarter to beat the Lady Spans 56-25 in West Valley League action Monday night. Sheridan in the first quarter, but a good shooting percentage gave the Lady Sparts a 10-8 lead. Scoring off turnovers, the Lady Bulldogs ran past Sheridan for a 24-19 halftime lead. The Lady Sparts gradually cut the lead with ball control and halfway through the fourth quarter Sheridan led 34-33. The teams traded baskets the rest of the way. Willamina led 41-40 with 32 seconds left and the ball in Sheridan's hands. The Lady Sparts turned the ball over, and Willamina called a timeout with 24 seconds. When Willamina put the ball back in play, the team passed the ball around and Sheridan didn't foul until there were only two seconds left on the clock. The free throw was no good, but two seconds weren't enough to set up a good shot for the Lady Sparts. Final score: Willamina 41, Sheridan 40. Willamina had balanced scoring with two players in double figures. Sam Hayes had 12 points, and Riscilla Lacno added 11. Nichol Moore was the only Lady Spartan in double figures with 19 points. She also grabbed 10 rebounds. The Lady Bulldogs raised their record to 4-5 with the win. The record puts Willamina in the thick of the race for the league's fourth and final playoff position. Sheridan's league record dropped to 2-7. The Lady Spans haven't been mathematically eliminated from the playoff race, but it will be an uphill battle the rest of the schedule. Willamina coach Dan Halter said, "We didn't stop our intensity tonight. In the five games we've lost we've had leads, but then lost our intensity. We stayed in the game all the way tonight and didn't give up." Bowling scores Sunday Mix4KI Team Won 1. Who Cares? 13 3 2. Shack-ups 13 3 3. Risberg Truck Line 11 5 4. Mendenhall Trucking 10 6 5.

Spartan matmen host tourney By Shawn Callsnan Correspondent, The n The Sheridan malmen hosted their largest tournament of the sea- son Saturday, taking on Wasco County and 3A schools Dallas, Gladstone, Philomath and Yamhill- Carlton. Philomath won the tourney with 184 team points. Dallas placed second with 156. Gladstone scored 148 and Sheridan took fourth with 131. Rob Rasar, 98 lbs., got a bloody nose and a 17-2 win in his first match against "Ibny Sammons of Gladstone, He was slow to start in his second match but was back to speed in a few seconds. Midway through the second period, however, his sides began to ache severely and so he had to forfeit the match due to injury default. Against Jacob Holzworth of Glad- stone, Lewis Asuncion wrestled very well, getting the pin with two seconds to go in the first period. Jamie Hensley, 123 lbs., had a great night for the Spans, going 4 for 4. He got the quick advantage in his fwst match, against Gladstone's Dusty Ayers and kept it, winning 15-2. Hesley's next match was a bit closer but he still wrestled extremely well to win 13-2. He picked up nine points on his next opponent while allowing none to be scored on himself. His most lop- sided victory came against Ventura Dryer who seemed to be his strong- est opposition of the nighL Hensley was very quick, though, getting the of his matches by wide margins. He was ahead from the start against Andy Tester, getting the pin in just under two minutes. Chad had a counter for every one of Shawn Allen's moves in his second match, resulting in a 6-1 win. He had a little more trouble with his next opponent, but dominated in the final minutes to win 13-2. Runes looked strongest in his final match of the night against Brad Babb, pinning him in 1:26. Brad Kleis, 136 lbs., had a decent night for Sheridan, beating Dusty Garus of Dallas 21-13 in a match in which both wrestlers were nearly pinned. Kleis did even better against Andy Merrall of Y-C, pinning him in 3:32. Travis Taylor found a quick oppo- nent who liked to use his feet in Joe Garmttson of Gladstone. Taylor triumphed, however, pinning him in 3:04. Taylor's match against Dion Gering of Y-C was a long one in which both wrestlers were pushed out of bounds a number of times. Travis kept his head, though, and came out with a 7-1 win. Andy Jordan had as good a night as any Sheridan wrestler, com- pletely dominating all his matches except for one. That one match was against Craig Thomas of Dallas and although Jordan seemed to have the obvious advantage the entire match, he didn't get a lot of points he should have gotten because be was out of bound As it was, he had to settle for a 5-5 draw. Against Andy Lundgren of Glad- stone, Jordan was always ahead but had some trouble with the pin which came in 2:56. It was a little closer with Morgan Ayer of Philo- math until Jordan stuck him with 1:20 to go in the second period. His final match was a bit more even, but not much. Jordan got the technical fall by a score of 19-3 against CLan Montgomery of Y-C.
