Read Review Walther Broncos Drop Two By Karen Schiewe The Walther Broncos dropped two games last weekend, giving them a record of 1 win 42 losses in league competition. Friday .night's home game against Chicago Christian started out with the Broncos in the lead, but the Knights pulled out in front and had an 19-10 advantage at the end of the first quarter. Christian then came back with full force in the following quarter, as their 6' 8" center Don Noort had 11 points. As the Walther men turned the ball over into the Knights' hands 2.2 times, Noort and his team mates continued to score. Noort had a total of 26 points while the high scorer for Walther was Rick Pygman, who had 12. The final score was 7246. Another Christian school, Timothy, came to meet the Broncos the following night, and defeated Walther 49-40. The game was played at an even pace, with the Trojans leading 120 at the close of the first quarter, and 19-15 at the half. Walther outscored Timothy in the third quarter, but that still wasn't enough to tie up the game. The Trojans kept widening the gap, taking advantage of the 19 fouls against the Broncos in the final quarter of action. Bob and Jeff Huismann, brothers on Timothy's squad, led in scoring for the night, having 15 and 19 ..points respectively. Rick Pygman had 11 points for the Brpcos. At the end of December, Walther competed in Timothy's Holiday Tournament and advanced to the championship game by beating Prosser Vpcational & Hillcrest. The Broncos met Timothy for the decision game. The Broticos will travel to Wheaton and Luther South this weekend for two league games.
