Nampa bursts into North-South lead The Idaho KrccPress4 The News-Tribune. Salurday, January 25.1075-A-l IT Down, but not out yet »i John II. Kilten CALDWELL-Rollie Lane said Thursday that if his Bulldog wrestling team ' W h , n § » North-South Invitational and build up a lot of points, il would really help his lean, -s chances of repealing their title in the event. But Lane didn't see much chance of that happening. Hollie must not have consulted with his crystal ball. The Bulldogs turned Kellogg everyway but loose Friday night, and ran up a 40-9 victory for the best team total alter the tourney's first round. Meridian was next with a 33-19 surprise nod over Moscow while the Caldwetl Cougars suffered a :il-ll loss to pre- lourney pick Lewiston. "That'll help us tomorrow." said Lane of lus team's point total. "I was pleased. Kellogg isagood team. They've got a lot of strong kids. We really had a tough lime getting any pins." Nampa did manage three pins at their end of the gym. an all-important factor under the North-South formal. The way things work is that each of the six teams in the two day tourney wrestles three dual matches. Every southern school wrestles every northern school. It takes three rounds and at the end of the second day, the team that compiles the most total dual match points is the winner, re- gurdless of how the team actually fared in the dual matches. As a result, a team need not win all three of their face-offs. Such was the case last year when Nampa edged Moscow 111-105 despite a 2-1 dual mark as compared to Moscow's 3 0. Nampa did it with a -15-6 win over Sandpoint. Lane is hoping that Kriday's 40-9 count points towards the same. One of the things that improved Lane's outlook more was Meridian's handling of Moscow. The Rears figured to be nearly as lough as Lewiston. having barely lost to the Bengals twice. Instead, the Warriors came on strong in tho upper weights and showed some real class in their win. "Geez, the kids really looked good," said Meridian Coach Bruce Burnett. "We got a couple of nice surprises at a couple of weights." · One of (he surprises came in the form of a draw. At 119, one of Moscow's top wrestlers, Kobin Welter, came up against Clay Brooks of the Warriors. At the end of three rounds, things were all lied 2-2. "We really didn't expect thai," said Burnett. Another surprise came through al 167 where Bill Laurence of Meridian, the recently crowned Southern Idaho Champion, beat Mitch Britzmann of Moscow 4-2. "1 really didn't expect to lose lhat one, even though Brilzmann is one of their best people. Still it was awfully nice," said Burnett. For tomorrow? "We just want to stay off our backs." Caldwell had the toughest lime of anybody. The Cougars had to deal with the Lewiston Bengals, Inland Empire league champions and the best wrestling learn in the stale north of Parma. Chris Inglis got things going in the right direction for Caldwell with a 5-2 decision al 98, but it was trouble for most of (he rest of the night. Caldwell's only other wins came from Reed Buhler al 119, and Dave Allen al 126. Caldwell managed a bye at 167 where Bryanl Brown drew with Randy Matson. Unless there was a major collapse this morning, Nampa should have gone head- tohead with Lewiston for the championship at 1 p.m. Lane'didn't gel much of a chance lu scout Ihe Bengals as his own team's mat mutch was going on al (he same lime, but he saw enough lo expecl a lough lime. "Il's going lo be lough. 1 didn't see much, bul oneof Ihe matches I did see was Hormalie iCraig, of Lewiston,) and Viissar (Cecil, of Caldwell). Anybody that can pin Vassar has lo be good." The loss was Vassar's third of Ihe year against 23 wins Uonnalie did the SIC champ in during the second round. "I guess we'll just have to wail (ill tomorrow. That'll tell."

Joe Ihli led the Vikings to a 2317 first quarter lead with 11 points, connecling on five of seven shots from (he floor along with a free throw.

Hays finished with 24 for the night and Hoyl had 18. Idaho's Henry Harris led all scorers wilh 27. Steve Weist chipped in '22 for the losers. Hays swept the board with 20 rebounds and slammed six Vandal shots to the floor as he dominated Ihe middle. Harris hit most of his shots from around 20 feet but the outside shooting wasn't enough. Idaho hit two more field goals lhan !SU, but the Bengals won Ihe battle at Ihe free throw line, hilling 17 of 23 attempts to the Vandals' 4-8.

Everhart put in 33 poinls from Ihe outside while Crow sluffed in 23 from Ihe inside to thoroughly frustrate Raider defensive ef- forls. Rimrock was not without its own high.scorers, wilh George Tolorica scoring 26 and Bob Love 22 poinls. The oulcome of the game was established in the first quarter when Nampa Christian exploded lo a crushing 29-8 lead. "We had a cold first quarter," lamented Rimrock coach Bob Quinly. "We only Ml 4-21. "We played Ihem even Ihe last three quarters and even started pulling up until we got in foul trouble." "Foul trouble" is ralhcr an understatement, since six of Rimrock's players fouled out. In the fourth quarter the Raiders were forced to play with only four players. The Trojans were of course anxious to run Ihe score up lo 100 points, hut Iheir coach Sieve Hudson decided that they were going lo have loearn Iheir poinls (he hard way and pulled one of his men to even things up.
