" Doug Meyer,, who; suffered> a severe ankle sprain in drills-during .the week before the.contest, fouled out with four minutes left in the third period and Storm Lake, >shbotih| like mad hatters frdrh the outside, built up a ten point cushion at the three-quarter mark. 1 Coach Bob King's crew refused to play dead, and with Rod Kickbush and Bob Harms taking important roles, chopped the leaders' margin ,,to;- 60-66 with two minutes of play rem'aining. Storm Lake began a stall, and the Bulldogs were forced to go after the ball hr an attempt to salvage the game. 1 The winners rolled up their 15 point bulge as the game ended. , Harms turned in his best all- around perforrnance of-the campaign. His ./ball-handling, .defense and scoring were tops all nigh't. He got 12 points, Meyer and Nelson ten each and Kickbush nine. Rod's rebounding Was again outstanding and 1 ; kept the locals right on the heels of Storm Lake throughout. The locals thus hit the holidays with a 6-2 record, far better than the- 5-4 mark turned in by last LuVerne Racks Goldfield Twice LuVerne rocked Goldfield twice at LuVerne Det 20. The girls ^downed last /year's -state champion outfit, 58-56,, in a thriller; and the boys shot their way to a 74-40 verdict in the nightcap. The winners had a 30-25 lead at the half in the girls game and clung to the edge until the end. Harper had 37 points and Patterson 15 for LuVerne, While Rob- ihSon got 28 and Frakes 20 for the losers. ' Alter a close first period, Lu- Verhe pulled away to a 34-18 halftime lead and took the finale with ease. Joe Henderson taU lied "28 -.points, Stripling 18,- Weber 11 and Toby ten for LuVerne. Bpll and Smith topped the losers with 15 and 12, . respectively. Corwith Takes 2 Wesley Games Corwith whacked Wesley twice at Wesley, Dec. 20, as the girls won • the opener, 65-43. and the boys took the finale, 72-38.
