An impressive Arlington Eagle basketball team won a hard-fought boys' basketball contest from the host Mon- roe Bearcats by a 76-63 score Friday, Dec. 16. In the first quarter, Monroe fell behind by 8-0, but then coach Denny Coates' squad ran up nine unanswered points to go ahead and when the buzzer sounded the Bearcats had manufactured an 11-10 lead. A 17-point second stanza by the Eagles gave them a 27-23 halftime advantage as Mon- roe managed 12 points dur- ing the frame. Disaster for the Orange and Black occurred during the third quarter as the visitors from Arlington outscored Monroe by 10 (24-14) to up its lead to 51-37. Fourth quarter play saw both teams putting the ball through the hoop at the foundation time to say and its NWAA league record at 3-1, while Monroe saw its ledger go to 0-5. NeXt action for Monroe will be Friday, Dec. 23, when they host the Burlington Tigers. Line Score: Arlington,. 10,17, 24,25-- 76 Monroe, 11,12,14,26--63 ketball The Monroe Bearcat girls' basketball team ran into a veritable buzz-saw Wednes- day, Dec. 14, as they drop- ped a 53-24 contest to the visiting Mt. Vernon Bull- dogs. An 8-7 first-quarter Monroe lead proved to be short-lived as the Bulldogs' effective trap press began to take its toll of Monroe turn-overs. The visitors countered with 18 points during the second quarter while holding the Bearcats to six to take a 24-14 lead at half-time. Twenty-eight second half- points for Mt. Vernon and 10 for Monroe produced the fin- al 53-24 score. Bulldog players Julie Walk- er and Tammy Morris, with 14 points apiece, paced a well-balanced Mt. Vernon scoring effort while Bearcat center Kim Creswell tallied 12 in the contest. Despite the score, the host Bearcats showed some good basketball at times against the defending champions of their league last year who once again put a team on the floor that does many things well. For coach Randy Olson's squad, the loss put the Orange and Black with a 3-4 mark in pre-season play. The Monroe Jayvees ran into the same type of effect- Monroe Bearcats captured a thrilling 33-30 wrestling match decision over the visit- ing Ferndale Golden Eagles when, with the match knot- ted at 30-all, Monroe heavy- weight John DiMaggio decis- ioned the Eagles' Stan Sev- erson, 13-6. Two consecutive pins by Wade Wooley and Dan An- derson, at 101 and 108 pounds respectively, started the Orange and Black with a rush on the scoreboard, the two pins being worth 12 points Ferndale captured the neXt three of four battles, winning the 115, 129 and 135 pound division, with one Monroe frosh interrupting the string with a 12-5 decision over his Eagle adversary The most unust/al match of the evening then followed with Monroe's Dave Rule (141) being injured and un- able to continue, but yet being given credit for the win when the referee ruled that the injury resulted from an il- legal maneuver on the Raft of the Ferndale wrestler. At this juncture, the score went 21-12 in favor of Mon- roe. The neXt two matches saw the teams split; Jeff Weber (148) was pinned by his Eagle competitor, and Bear- cat Kirk Call dominated his opponent to take a 6-1 tri- umph. With the score tied at 24-24 Dave Baaken of Monroe (178) contributed a key pin over his man while in the 190 classification Monroe's Kev- in Loresch was being pinned, setting the stage for the ev- ening's dramatic final match among the two heavy- weights. With the win, Coach Randy Berg's squad evened their NWAA league record at one win and one loss.
