It was the first I .akes Conference win for KstherviJle over a Storm l.ake team since the 1968 basketball season. It was also the first Lakes Conference victory for the Midgets in the young cage season in a game which saw numerous turnovers by both teams. "It's ironic," stated Estherville mentor George Hess, "we played three good games and lost but we played Storm Lake a bad game and won." Estherville guard Terry Poulos led all Midget scorers for the night with seven fieid goals and four free throws for 18 points. Most of Terry's points came from penetrating to the basket and long jumpers when Storm I^ake closed the inside up. Lone Midget returning letterman Bob Hartman played his usual good game by pouring in 14 points and sinking three free throws for 17 points. Hartman, who started playing basketball in fifth -grade, wound up the top re- bounder for the night with 11. Storm Lake took a 2-0 lead and it wasn't until 4:15 had gone in the first quarter when Hartman's jumper finally put Estherville on the score board. The lead changed hands five times before the Midgets took command 10-8 at the end of the first quarter. Storm Lake played a delayed type of game by waiting for the good shots and trying to get the ball into its big man under the basket. The Midgets led 17-14 with about four minutes left in the first half and then reeled off eight straight points to outscore Storm Lake 15-6 in the second Arms A-Plenty Estherville's Chris Rullestad and an unidentified Midget player smother a Tornado attempt to score two points in a Lakes Conference game Friday night on Estherville's home court.

In the third quarter, the Tornadoes outscored the Midgets 19-14 and tied it at 33-all with 52 seconds left in the quarter, but two field goals by Midget Rob Bothwell and a short jumper by Hartman spoiled a Storm l,ake rally and Estherville owned a 39-33 lead going into the final quarter. With four minutes to go in the contest, the Midgets enjoyed their biggest lead of the night with a 50-39 advantage before Storm Lake came within four points after a six-point scoring burst.
