In the fourth quarter Gehlen began where they had left out and quickly began stretching their lead as Unity ran into foul trouble. Tom Deegan came off the bench for Gehlen and hit a couple of key buckets and at the 5:58 mark Dan Ryan hit a Jumper from the foul line that scraped the ceiling before coming down and Gehlen was ahead 56-44. Unity Knights then made the last six minutes of the game probably the longest six that Gehlen head mentor Gary Niichel has ever experienced. During these closing minutes of the game there were more Jump ball calls and more action on the floor than you can see at a wrestling meet. Knight players, many of them substitutes for their teammates who had fouled out showed why they are the number one team In the Quad County conference. In the next three minutes of play each team scored just two points as time and time again Gehlen ballplayers walked to the freethrow line with one and one opportunities but failed to capitalize on any of the free throw chances. Unity pecked away at the Gehlen lead from here to the end of the game. At the 2:52 mark the score was- 58-46, at 2:23 58-48, at the 1:12 mark it was 60-53 ahd..Gehlen fans to wonder l^'the has been giving Northwestern an average of 20 points per game and 11 rebounds, turned in another good performance to spur the Raiders to the Westmar win. He dropped In 21 points for the Raiders. Jim Woudstra stayed on top with 29 points and kept the Raiders winning streak going. Westmar's Dennis Cullinan, gave the Raiders a hard time by chalking up 33 points and Dave Hutchinson grabbed 22. The Raiders 98-68 victory over Bethel gives Northwestern a firmer grip on the Trl- State Conference Title. The Raiders came back after a tough struggle against West- mar the night before to topple Bethel by 30 points on Saturday. The first half of the game, Bethel kept the Raiders within reach and finished with a half time score of 47-41. But when the Raiders returned they bucketed the ball with ease and pulled ahead for a commanding lead behind the scoring efforts of Bosch, Woudstra and Kempers. The Raiders netted 53% of their shots which showed in the final score of 98-68 and all five Raiders finished in the double figures. Bosch and Woudstra chalked up 20 points; Kempers, the Sioux Center forward who is playing fine ball, dropped in 17; Dave Aalbers, 14; and Tom Estes, 13. It should be all the way for the Raiders who play Bethel and Concordia in Minneapolis on February 11 and 12.

The Dutchmen started slow and trailed at the end of the first quarter 17 to 12. In the second quarter the Dutchmen exploded while the Bulldogs were held to 11 points.
