Play Waldorf at 7:30 p.m. .ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MON., FEB. 7, 1972 Page 8 Wolves Home Tonight A forfeit in the final minutes of play Friday, a loss to a fine U.N.I., junior varsity Saturday, and finally another home game to- nigljt keyed the weekend activity for 'Iowa Lakes Community College. The Wolves go into tonight's game at the high school gym against Waldorf, a team which the ILCC cagers probably played their best against earlier this season to gain a 109-94 victory although the lead opened up in the final minutes of play. Waldorf, in the first meeting, hit well from the outside but fine Wolf team effort gave the inside shots to Bill Kramme and Joe Schacherer with John Hanna taking care of the outside for Iowa Lakes, each of the three hitting over 20 points in the game. The teams square off at 7:30 tonight. Friday night was something else. With seven minutes left in the game, Iowa Lakes trailed by Buena Vista's junior varsity 12 points but were staging a comeback and had cut the lead down to four points on fine second half play. Then, with a league ruling that the varsity had to take the floor by 7 p]m„ officials left the clock running through timeouts, out of bounds plays and free throws. Wolf coach Ben Hix felt that it wasn't fair for either team to play under those conditions and three minutes had expired with both teams just standing, everyone was yelling at the officials, and the officials admitted they were unable to properly call the game. So Hix pulled the Wolves from the floor and the game was forfeited by Buena Vista to the Wolves rather than being re­ scheduled. Prior to the forfeit, Schacherer was pacing the Wolf attack with 26 points, Bill Kramme had registered 14 points, Steve Kees 14, Merritt Gurley seven, Joe Pohlman and Rich Coleman six each, while John Hanna had one. Saturday night, the Wolves ran into the strong University of Northern Iowa junior varsity and, as Hix put it, "they were one of the best teams we played this season." The Wolves finally dropped an 87-73 decision with the top four U.N.L players going into the double figures. The Wolves trailed 51-37 at halftime. . - k Three Wolves, Schacherer, Kramme, andJimBuckinghamhit for 11 points, Steve Kees finished with 10, Merritt Gurley hit for six, Rich Coleman and John Hanna five each, Mike Ohrtman Lincoln Central Cagers Gain Twin Wins Friday and Dan Anderson two each. Leading U.N.L were Witham with 23, Nielson with 22, Davis with 18 and Ferguson scoring 11. Commenting on the teams play, Hix cited Merritt Gurley with playing well in the past two games, picking up 13 points in the two nights, Buckingham having his best game since the beginning of the season Saturday night, and Schacherer for a fine game Friday night against Buena Vista. "Also," Hix added, "Dan Anderson has broke into the starting lineup for the past three games while the guard court of Hanna, Pohlman, Coleman, and Gurley has been playing well regardless of who is in the game." Looking ahead to tonight's game, Hix stated, "Waldorf has been playing good ball this season and it will be a tough night for us." The winner of tonight's game could well draw FortDodge inthe first round of regional junior college tournament action to be held in Estherville later this month while the loser could well go against Mason City, pre-tourney favorite.

UJI'Ll TAKE SFITS OUCR TI mm And so will our more-than-a-million Iowa members. They agree wholeheartedly with our basic idea that it just isn't right to make money on a person's chances of having hard luck. And a serious injury or illness at today's high costs of health care is just about the hardest luck you can have. It can cripple incomes, destroy savings, and cause huge debts. It takes really good protection to guard you from bills like that. It takes benefits, and that's where Blue Cross and Blue Shield shine. The good benefits stem mostly from the fact that not a dime goes into profit. Instead, the money goes into broader coverage of the expenses you're facing. The choice is a simpfe one; protection or profits, and our members had no trouble choosing the nonprofit Blue Cross and Blue Shield way.
