10 the Hujnbaldt independent, Saturday, Dee: 22,1973 Win on last 2 duels 'Cats snap back for win Hampton and Humboldt seemed to be quite' evenly matched, Wednesday night, as the Bulldogs and Wildcats fought an even-steven dual meet. The Wildcats finally copped the North Central Conference victory, 24-16, on the strength of the two final matches. In junior varsity action, the Little 'Cats got back on the Winning trail, 28-24, also on the strength of the last two encounters. — After being down 12-3 and leading 16-12, Humboldt was deadlocked 16-all going into the 186 and Heavyweight matches by the visiting Bulldogs. Jack Dreyer faced Mike Kodemeyer in the 186-lb. struggle and the Wildcat fell behind 1-0 on a second period escape by Rodemeyer. However, Coach Joe Fitch's wrestler came up with a third period reversal to win the match 2-1 and set the team score at 18-15. A Hampton win at Heavyweight could have deadlocked the meet, or won with a pin, but Dan Grause easily handled the visitors' Pat Dillon, pinning his shoulders to the mat in 1:30 to assure the Wildcat victory. That was the lone pin for either team in the meet. The dual was even all the way through as both sides jockeyed for a lead with Hampton jumping into a 12-3 edge early in the meet. However, the Wildcats steadily caught up to the opposition before taking the final two matches for the win. Mike Loftus showed one of his finer performances of the season at 98, despite a 3-2 loss at the hands of Hampton's Paul Kruse. Loftus took an early lead with a first period takedown but Kruse came up with a time advantage and reversal in the second to take the lead. The tw.o plucky sophomores wrestled evenly in the last period and Kruse took home the win. Mike Colwell knotted the team score at 3-3 with a 9-3 decision over Rick Hanson at 105. Colwell led off with a first period takedown followed by a reversal and three-point near fall in the second. A reversal in the third period gave the Wildcat his margin of victory. Hanson scored an escape in the first and a -reversal in the third for his three points. The Bulldogs recaptured the team lead as 112-pounder Doug Hanson beat Kevin Ooodell, 2-0 on a second period reversal. The visitors increased the lead as Dick Perez stopped Dick Seller, ,8-1, at 119. Perez scored on 'two two-point nearfalls, a takedown and reversal and held Seiler to only a second period escape for the win. Hampton increased its lead to 12-3 as Jeff Marquard beat 126-lb. John Carver, 7-0, by scoring two takedowns, a nearfall and escape. The 'Cats started to roll again at 132 where Mike Conlon took a 4-1 decision from Bob Cooney. Conlon scored on a takedown and reversal for the win while holding Cooney to a second period escape. Both wrestlers received stall warnings in the last period of the match. The Hampton lead decreased another three, to 12-9, as Tom Reimers won a 4-0 138 decision from Glen Burmes- ters. Reimers scored his four points in the last period on a reversal and nearfall to take the win. Kirk Hanson knotted the socre for the first time at 12-all with a 9-2 win at 145 over Steve Loebig. Hanson scored a reversal, two nearfalls and a takedown for the win. Humboldt's Rick Post boosted the 'Cats into a 15-12 lead by beating his 155-lb. opponent Kurt Tapps, 4-2. Post scored first with a takedown in the opening period and was tied 2-2 by Tapps on a second period reversal. Post took the win later in that period with his own reversal. Veteran wrestler John Boelkes tied it up again for the 'Dogs as he beat Jim Dreyer, 8-5, at 167. Boelkes . scored on three- takedowns and two escapes for his victory. Dreyer scored on an escape, takedown and reversal for his points. Then came the final two Wildcat victories which cap- tured the team win. Next action for Fitch's Wildcats comes Jan. 4 at St. Edmond, Fort Dodge, in non-conference grappling. VAttSITV STATISTICS Humboldt 24 Hampton 15 98—Paul Kruse, Ham., dec.
