Woodstock (ID Sontlnol-Horald Tuotday, Oocombor 11, 19S4 Pagt 7 SENTINEL-HERALD Sports Firnbach, Eckler lead Streaks past Harvard WOODSTOCK - Talk about consistency. For three quarters, Woodstock High School's girls played Harvard to a 51-51 tie, but it was the 15-7 first-quarter edge the Blue Streaks hung on to in posting a non-conference victory in the WHS gym Monday night. Sophomore Mary Jo Firnbach scored 10 of her game-high 24 points in the third quarter, and junior Patience Eckler added 17, as the Blue Streaks held off a scrappy Hornet bunch, 66-58. But the Streak victory may have been at the expense of their top re-bounder. Eckler's services will be lost for several games after she suffered a twisted ankle late in the game. In making a strong move to the hoop for her 17th point, she landed on the foot of a Harvard player and rolled her ankle. She was playing her finest game as a Blue Streak when the injury occurred. The Streaks looked like the game would be all their's in the first quarter. They jumped to a 9-1 lead in the opening two minutes behind Eckler's seven points, four of those on rebound baskets. Havard then called time and managed to play the Streaks even during the rest of the quarter, but it was this eight-point bulge that would haunt Harvard the rest of the night. After having early problems with the Streaks' 3-2 zone, the Hornets settled down to play their own game.

Johnsos, a legend as a player and coach with the Chicago Bears, who won six National Football League titles during his years with the team, is dead at age 79. Johnsos, whose son Luke Jr., is a Woodstock resident, died Monday in Evanston Hospital. Johnsos started as a split end with the Bears in 1928. He became an assistant coach in 1938 and during World War II was co-head coach with Heartly "Hunk" Anderson and Paddy Driscoll for four seasons while owner-coach George Halas served in the Navy and led the team to a National Football League championship in 1943. He was an assistant to Halas for the 1963 championship season. The team won six NFL titles during his years with the Bears. "Luke was my coach when I played with the Bears," said Coach Mike Ditka, who played on the 1963 team. "He was good and very thorough because he played the game, and in his day he was a pretty darn good receiver." "He was one of the best ends in the league and a great pass receiver," said Harold "Red" Grange, a longtime friend who coached and played halfback for the Bears with Johnsos. Johnsos also was a printing company executive for more than 40 years during the off-season. He co-owned Johnsos -Cop pock Printing in suburban Skokie for more than eight years. He sold the company to Bagcraft Corp. of America 20 years ago, but continued to work for the firm until two weeks ago. Survivors include his wife, Rosemary; four daughters, Judy Wohlford, Janet Trafelet, Barbara Kocher and Ann Smith; his son, Luke Jr.; and 15 grandchildren. Services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Wm. H. Scott Funeral Home, Wilmette. Huntley posts two wins HUNTLEY -r The Huntley Redskins continued to have their best start in ten years with wins over Hampshire and Richmond Burton last weekend. Friday night, the 'Skins dropped the winless Hampshire Whip-Purs 69-56. Paul Manning led all scorers with 24 points, while Todd Ream added 14 and Gerry DeDina had 11. , Saturday night, Huntley barely got by the Richmond-Burton Rockets with a 55-50 win. The Redskin's two biggest offensive threats, Manning and Ream, were held to 10 and eight points, repectively. Only an outstanding game by DeDina kept Huntley in the contest. DeDina scored a career-high 17 points and had 11 rebounds. tdv Dccnor vnn piivi A urWT A HEARING AID FOR 30 DAYS liniW WS I mm fl l My New Canal Hearing Aid is so small. hardly anyone knows it s mere.

Janel Olson had given Woodstock a 17-7 advantage on a rebound shot with 7 : 19 to play, but the Streaks went the next 3 : 34 without scoring a point as the Hornets got their running game untracked. But just as the guests got close, Firnbach banged home two free throws and Lisa Palmquist snared a loose in-bounds pass and hit a short jumper to push Woodtock to a 21-16 lead. Senior Nancy Walters hit a rebound shot and a six-footer to pace a 7-4 WHS spurt giving the Streaks a 28-20 halftime edge. The second half wasn't much more than the teams trading hoops. Woodstock never led by more than 15 and Harvard never got closer than eight. However, Koch and Kim Armstrong came alive for Harvard in the second half. Armstrong threw in two top-of-the-key shots and Koch hit a pair of left-angle 14-footers to help the Hornets keep pace with the Streaks. However, Eckler and Palmquist scored four points apiece before Firnbach took matters into her own hands. Showing she isn't afraid to "mix it up underneath," the sophomore guard stole a rebound for a layup, hit a tough reverse layup (off another rebound), popped in a six-footer, and then swished a ID-footer to ignite an 8-4 Streak spurt and pace WHS to a 48-35 lead. Harvard cut the deficit to 48-39 at the three-fourths juncture. Firnabch opened the fourth period with two layups and Kim Hwryko tossed in a rebound shot for a 54-41 advantage. Harvard made a final run at the hosts by scoring eight of the next 11 points to make it a 57-49 count, i But that challenge was met by a Streak counterchallenge as Eckler's pre-injury layup triggered a burst that saw Woodstock outscore Harvard, 9-2, for a 66-51 lead. Armstrong added 16 points for Harvard and Kathleen Healy chipped in seven and Eden Denier added six. Thursday, the Blue Streaks, 2-1, will host Crystal Lake South in a Fox Valley Conference opener for both teams. Saturday, the Streaks host Cary-Grove in a 3 p.m. battle and Monday WHS travels to Round Lake for a non-conference duel. Harvard (58) Armstrong 7 2-2 16. Koch 8 4-6 20. K. Healy 2 3-5 7.

Wrestlers 'better' after losses, says Patton WOODSTOCK - The Blue Streak wrestling team got the weekend off to a good start Friday night, but found the going a bit rougher on Saturday. Friday night, the Streaks won 10 of 12 matches en route to kicking Cary-Grove, 51-9, and on Saturday, WHS met its match in losing to Grant, 38-16, and suffering, a 36-23 loss at the hands of Palatine. t However, the two losses didn't discourage Blue Streak Coach Jim Patton. "Even though we were defeated by Grant and Palatine, I felt I saw great improvement in the boys' wrestling," Patton said. "I feel wrestling the tougher teams in the state I . Derik Moref ield ( 145) stuck Keith Bandoske in 2:40, Warren Wolschlager (at 155) dominated Ron Lemke, 16-0 and Jerry deGelder won by forfeit at 167. Bruce Eddy beat Gary Nat-trass, 10-5, in the 185-pound match and heavyweight Carnell Washington won by forfeit. Saturday, however, only two wrestlers Washington and1 Wolschlager had non-losing records. Washington, in fact, wrestled a total of only 2:40 in recording two pins. He stuck Grant's Steve Roe in 1:35 and he pinned Ron Kondaros of Palatine in 1:05.

Against Cary, the Streaks jumped to a 12-0 lead on forfeits to Jack Goldberg and Keith Bor-chardt. Jason Colangelo was stopped, 9-2, by Cary's Dan Dosenbach at 112, but Robert Fortiz got the Streaks back on the winning track with a pin of Mick Meyer at 5:21. Dan Weiskopf hammered Dave 'Prater, 15-4, and Bob Birdsell beat Steve Karzynski, 6-1. Doug Hughes recorded the Trojans' last victory of the night with a pin of Dennis Murray at 1:05 in the 138-pound class. The Streaks then won the final five matches as linois' top wreslters, to a 2-2 tie, and the Blue Streak senior defeated Todd Schreiner, 4-1. "Frey is one of the best 55s (155-pounder) around. I thought Warren did an outstanding job in that match," Patton said. Winning single matches for the Streaks were Colangelo by an 11-5 count over Grant's Todd Saucy. Fortiz stung Grant's Spencer Mauh, 16-2; Borchardt shut out Palatine's Bob Stoltz, 1(H); Bird-sell won by the same score over Tom Cullen at 132 and Eddy stuck Todd Weber in 5:02.

Sophomore girls off to 2-1 start WOODSTOCK The Blue Streak sophomore girls basketball team got a season-high 25 points out of Kris Fields, but it went for naught as Harvard nipped Woodstock, 40-39, in a non-conference game Monday night. Fields collected her game high total on eight field goals and 9-for-12 shooting from the free throw line. However, her teammates combined to make just 4-of-ll throws as the Streaks finished 13-of-23 from the line. The Streaks had a chance to win the game, but an in-bounds pass was thrown away with -.02 remaining. The loss was the first of the year for the Streaks, who won their opening two non-conference battles with little trouble. WHS opened the season with a convincing 44-25 win over Johnsburg as all five Blue Streak starters scored at least six points. Laura Witty led the attack with 11 points, Fields and Karen McKinney had eight each, Jeni Biestek added seven and Amy Pinn chipped in six. Woodstock used a full-court press that unraveled JHS. The Streaks led, 8-6, after one quarter, but extended the margin to 264 at the intermission. Last week, WHS slipped by Waukegan East, 35-20. McKinney, a freshman, led Woodstock with 12 points, Witty had eight and Pinn and Kris Moricoli scored four apiece. "They're inexperienced still. They get nervous," Coach Edna Lister-barger said. "We've had a few injuries so we don't have that many subs, but we're coming around." WHS, 2-1, will host Crystal Lake South Thursday evening at 6:30 and will host Cary-Grove Saturday at 1 p.m. Stroke clinic sign-up set Thursday WOODSTOCK Registration for the winter stroke clinic will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 13 at the Woodstock High School cafeteria.
