Tr* Idaho Free Press, Friday, February H, 1971; - | Momentarily past Jefferson While Nampa West's Ron Kollman gets by Coldwell Jefferson's" Mack Heinrich (left) on the way lo the hoop, and Juan Barrera has these extra steps (right) on drive, West was the eventual loser Thursday night in the 9th grade Junior High Tourney there when Caldwell took a 65-59 victory to move into the finals opposite Ontario. Heinrich had 15 points in the fourth quarter to bring Jeff the victory. One more f/me before District BOISE -- It is with a great sense of relief that Borah and Nampa end their regular seasons tonight. As Lions' Coach Steve Van Ocker said Thursday afternoon from Boise, "It's a lillle late in the season for surprises. We don't have any special plans." · The two teams meet here beginning al 8 p.m. Borah comes off a 67-63 defeat to Meridian in its own den and Van Ocker is still scratching his head about it. The ups and downs of an 8-11 season were never more down than against the Warriors. Like Nampa, Borah is a mysterious ballclub, prone to brilliance on occasion but more often than not prone to ball things up. "We haven't been playing that well," admits Van Ocker, "But we played pretty well against Meridian. Thai game with Meridian was a close one and I Parma has 4 though! we played fairly well. They're not that much better." Merrill Anderson's Bulldogs are fiesh from (heir It-point trouncing of Caldwell and have taken dead aim on the No. 5 seed for the District Tournament thai begins next Thursday at Capital and Boise State's gyms. Nampa is 4-U in Ihe Southern Idaho Conference, 7-12 overall, and 4-7 in Region II compared to Ihe Lions' C-5 regional standing. The first Borah game, at Bulldog Gym, was a study in frustration for the home forces. Anderson had plunked center Gary Simon on the bench for disciplinary reasons and the 'Dogs had a miserable night from the floor in a 55-43 loss. Al one point, they were down 15, but trimmed it lo four before Borah pulled away. "Even wilh Gary just playing a few minutes, we were in it all the way," says Anderson. "A couple turnovers and they had Ihe ballgame." With Ihe 6-9 Simon, the Uons' 6-4 Tom Randell will gel more than a match on Ihe backboards. "I don't Ihink it was a disadvantage not playing against him before," says Van Ocker from Borah, "He's still a good one, though, no doubt about it. ,U definitely will change Tom's situation but TonVs aivful strong. He got 22 against Duke Jackson and Dennis Rasmussen in the Meridian game." The backcourl was a problem in the first game for Nampa, wilh Corey Perkins stealing most of the thunder, but the 'Dogs didn't have lireless Brian Stanlon then, either. Slanton heads up tonight's slarting backcourl along wilh Andy Vasqucz while Anderson will go again with Simon and Brent Clark and Scott Markus at Ihe wings. Borah has an outside chance al Ihe No. 3 seed but Ihe final determination will come tonight as Meridian meets Boise in another key District luneup. "I don't Ihink il's that im- porlanl "stresses Van Ocker. "Everybody is just trying to get away from Capital."" "I Ihink it's pretty wide open. Nampa could still go to slate as Ihe No. 2 team. A lot depends on the big kid." "We have -a chance," says Anderson of State, "It depends on how much the kids want it." State opens TWIN FALLS -- While team scoring went much as ex-;; petted in Ihe first round of the State Class A wresllingx championships in Twin Falls Thursday, Ihere was a hosl of '£ surprises on the individual level and (he Nampa Bulldogs^ were among the more surprised -- and ihe more disap-s pointed. 5 "We'd expected more of the kids to win those first round* matches," said Bulldog assistant coach Moses Kim Thur-$ sday evening from Twin Falls. Of the 11 conlestanls thatjj Nampa qualified (or ihe meet, only five advanced, unscathed. :? The six first-round losers have lo sit and watch the men io\ which they lost lo find out their fait. -J On the team level, things went much as predicted. The* Jerome Tigers are on top with 1214 points, followed by'-. defending champion Pocatello with 10. Next are Snake River ·* and Lewiston, tied with 914 each. Bonneville has eighl^ followed by Nampa and Vallivue, tied with seven each. ! "What happens now is that the wrestlers that beat ouri guys have to win tomorrow (Friday) if our guys are going to £ stay alive. If those other men lose, our people are out of it." ;_* "Hie Vallivue Falcons found themselves with about the,^ same luck as only four of their ten qualifiers managed wins '·· in the first go-round. * "I kin d of thought we'd may be get a couple more through : than that," said Falcon Coach Ray Schnabel, "But then\ again, we got a forfeit in favor of Tim Youren at 98, and that \ was unexpected." '$ Advancing for the Bulldogs first were both of Rollie.^ Lane's 98-pounders, Curt Bradburn and Greg Gourley.5 At 105, Dave Crespin pulled one of Ihe day's major up-£ sets, polishing off top-seeded Jed Jones of Skyline with a 7-3 $ decision lo earn ihe right to face Kim Pascoe of Shellev. *j Scolt DeChambeau got Nampa's next win with a third ?! round pin of Marlell Armstrong of Rigby. Curt Hensley didt-1 'the same for the Bulldogs al 185, pinning Minico's LonnieS Hardy in (he 3rd. At heavy, Larry Cronin lost 5-1 lo Poky's '?· Joe Rassctiussen. ft For Vallivue, other than Youren, all three men lhat£ advanced were expected to. Second-seed Clay Ward look his'3 138-pound bout with Jed Taylor of Snake River. Same was^ (rue of (op-seeded Jack Bish in the 155-pound class where he ^ decisioned Pal Hughes of Post Falls, 4-1. Sf Al heavyweight, second-seeded Neils Tidwell pinned f Cliff Hammons of Skyline in the third round. J The Meridian Warriors earned two team points from 167- ? pounder Bill Laurance and 145-pound Kevin Wood. Wood g decisioned Mark Yates of Lewiston while Laurance pinned $ _ Mitch Britzmann of Moscow, the fifth seed, in Ihe third c $ round. {t TheKunaKavernengotonewin from BobWithrowatllS^- who claimed a superior decision over Rassmussen of Soda Springs. ms;«»Kia:wsw:«^^ SR V title-clincher looming in TWIN FALLS - Trying to regain its lofty status in Class B state wrestling circles after a year's absence from the throneroom, Telon soared inlo the lead of the Gem classic Thursday with 11 points. Defending champion Parma shares seventh place wilh Lakeland on six points as Coach Jess Eddy's Panthers advanced a quartet of grapplers into this morning's quarter -final round, which will precede tonight's finals. ' Middleton has three points »nd two wrestlers left, Fruitland his a 3-point total, New Plymouth 2'/i, Kuna 1'A while Homedale took s zero in a Trojan day of futility. Winning for Parma were Jay Nickles at 98 pounds and individual defending champion Malt Bake at 126, both on pins, plus Panther decision victors Steve Viclrers at 132 and Hod NlcUen at 185. Middleton's winners included Gtorge Chapman on a pin at 126 ind Wayne Murray on a decision at 138. Trailing the leading Redskins In scoring is Salmon River wilh IVi points, followed by Buhl and Aberdeen both wilh 8. Valley District king Bishop Kelly and Butte each tallied 7. Area winners: By John H. Killcn . it's all over but (he shouting and (hat won't last · much longer either -- at least until district tour- i namenls start next week and all Ihe area basketball : teams get a second chance. : But as far as the league races to go, only the Snake i River Valley League remains undecided and the ·: Vallivue Falcons can lake Ihe trophy home wilh a i victor,' at Bishop Kelly Friday nighl. | As Ihe Knights haven't exactly been devaslaling .: Ihis year, you have to look for Jack Jones' Falcons to : lop the heap when the smoke clears. : As far as the Treasure Valley and Southwest Idaho i League go, Wilder already has the first wilh a 12-0 i loop record, and Homedale has Ihe second with a 7-0 ; mark in ihe conference. · |: All the same, a menagerie of regular season wrap; ups spattci 1 the weekend schedule. i;' Besides Vallivue's Friday trip to Kelly, Meridian :· travels lo Boise, in a Southern Idaho Conference f. wrap-up while Weiser finishes up with Kuna in Ihe Kave. While Kuna has one lasl league game Saturday, hosling Middlelon, both Nolus and Nampa Christian close up Ihe season's Treasure Valley League wars in Nampa Friday. For Vallivue, the Knights shouldn't presenl much of a problem. Kelly finally managed to break a 31 game losing streak earlier Ihis season and eventually won two games, but that's all Vallivue has lost in Ihe league, and Jones' height should prove much too much for Bias Telleria's Knights. Vallivue goes into (lie regular season wrap-up with a 9-2 mark in Ihe SRV and a 14-5 overall slate. Kelly is 1-9 in Ihe league and 2-12 overall. Al Kuna, the Kavemen bid to solidify al least a third place finish in the SRV as Ihey Iry on last place Weiser lonight. Kuna (6-4,11-7) has been devastaling all season at home, beating the likes of Vallivue and Emmett in Ihe Kave, and last place Weiser (0-10,2-16) has little hope of an upset. For Meridian, tonight's bailie wilh Ihe Boise ---^ Braves holds significance bolh in Region II and in the 5 SIC. A win would keep Ihe Warriors a solid second 5 behind Capilal in Ihe Region seeding for Ihe up- 3 coming tournament Boise is currently fourlh in Ihe 3 regional 5-5and Borah is third al 6-5. · Meridian (7-8,10-9) dropped Ihe Braves in Ihe first: mecling belwcen (he (wo clubs 57-55 in Meridian and i bolh teams have been up and down all year since S In iheTVL, Nolus ill-2,15-4) and Nampa Christian : ' (6-7,9-10) wrap il up with tonight's lilt in ihe Trojan'· gym. Nolus has Ihe No. 2 finish in Ihe league wrapped \ up bul Nampa Christian is hoping for a win lo give \ themachanceal a third place liewilhMelba. 5 Saturday nighl sees Ihe lasl area regular season conlesl with Kuna (6-4, 11-7) entertaining Middlcton (r-5, 12-6). Should Kuna win both Friday and Saturday's oulings, Ihey have a good chance at Ilie third spol in Ihe SRV while losses and a Middlelon win Saturday would give the Vikes a chance at a finish above .500 in the league. ¥::ft¥^i¥KWK?M^ Jeif outduels N-West by 65-59 N-- NlckM I P) H". ··" I ·«"') : "'Mr (PI gin.

At 3 p.m. this afternoon, Mountain Home and Boise Soulh settled third place in the Tourney while Hillside and Nampa Wesl met for third al 4:30. The championship game, which figures to be a good one between two evenly matched teams, comes off al 6 p.m. The semifinal between the host team and Ihe Caldwell outfit was close all Ihe way. Caldwell Jumped in front 15-9 after the first period but West, behind Ihe work of Ron Kollmann and Brian Garley, was within six al halflirae and three afler the (hird quarter al 43-40.
