JEWELL COUNTY RECORD Thursday, Mar. 3, 1983 Page 8 - Section 1 i M~NKATO VS. JEWELL The 1982-88 basketball season for the Mankato Cougars came to an end with a 5548 loss to the Jewell Wild- eats in the round of the regional tournament Thursday evening at Jewel]. The score was very close to the contest played one week earlier in which the Wildcats sneaked past the Cougars 55-50. The semi-final game saw Mankato jump out impres- ~ve]y to an early lead. Jewel], however, intensified the pres- sure of their full court press, eaunsd several turnovers that led to easy baskets and gained :control of the game. After grabbing the lead, Jewel] was :never behind, although the Cougars closed the gap to two points at one time in the half. Excellent free ithrow shooting early in the game to assume the lead and at the end to maintain it was an important factor in their .successful effort. For the game, Jewe]I hit on 17-24 .charities for 70% while Man- kate was only 12-21 for 57%. From the field, the Wildcats -were 19-44 for 43% and the :Cougars 18-47 'for 38%. The defensive work for both teams was very intense. Jewel] used a full court and half court press peried/cally with effertiveness and played :man to man throughout. Man- kate went primarily with a 1-8-1 sad did a good job of :sltutttng down the inside Bzgne of the Wildcats for a :majority of the contest. John Owen, held somewhat !in cheek in scoring with 10 :points, came up with a season :h/gh 14 rebounds. Pat Schlot- ~ter~k led scoring with 14 ]~ints and also had 8 re- .~unds. When a team enters a 4eason as unexperienced as we were this year, it is doubly ~important to have good senior J~tdership and we were for- !tunate that we did have. John Own, Jamle Park and Mike Eaton knew what was ex- pected and responded posi- tively to the challenge. In our eight pmns of the sea- m. they especially took charge and led the way to wins in six of these. Next year, it will he very hard to replace the court intelligence and awareness, and all around basketball skills, notably of- fensive, of John. He always knew what to do on the court and this only came through many hours of pract/clng the game during the off season, Jamle Park will he missed for his enthusiasm for the game, his court awareness and unbe- lievable quick hands aBd de- femive ability, In our stretch run, Jamie really played well, both offensively and defen- sively, end made many key baskets. Mike Eaton was our designated zone breaker, Whenever we needed instant points. Mike would enter the game sad bomb a few in to keep the defense honest. Mike Was a fine shooter and made ~aiflcant eontributionJ to the team. The Cougars finished II~ f~ the year sad tied for 4th in the Pi~ Trail League. They would like to thank everyone who helped during the year in whatever eapac/ty -- ticket takers, scorekeepers, timers, statisticians, pep club, cheer- leaders, fans, and parents. It was a satisfying year and with five lettermen returning, next season should also he re- warding. fg ft f tp Simmonds 3 0 5 6 Park 5 0 5 10 Owen 0 10 5 10 Parsons 2 0 2 4 Schlotterback 6 2 2 14 Herbig 2 0 3 4 --Coach IRon Koster LADY COUGARS VS. ~VELL Mankato Lady Cougars were again narrowly defeated by the Jewel| Wildcats 37~39 Monday evening, Feb. 21, in the first round of the 1A Regionals. This loss put an end to the girls' 19~3 basketball season as they finished with a 7-11 overall record and 3-4 in league play. The game seemed to he all Mankato's as they jumped to a 13-4 first quarter lead. The girls were alternating zone defenses ~n~g it difficult for the:JeweU Wildcats to adjust. But during the second quarter, Jew.ell came out fighting and quickly caught up, making the halftime s~ore' 20-18, in the Lady Cougars favor. During the thirdquar- ter, Jewell managed to edge ahead by one, 28-29. Jewel] began the fourth quarter with a delay and this caused the Lady Cougars to get over- anxious and: commit unneces- ury fouls, The Wildcats shot 16 of their 24 free throws during the final eight minutes and this helped give them a 6 point lead with 1:30 left. The Lady Cougars battled back, but their effort left them just 2 points short of advancing to the Regional Semi-Finals. The stats were almost identical for both teams with the exception of free throw shooting. Manlmto was 35% (17 of 49) from the field and Jewell was 820/o (14 of ,44). From the line Mankato could only muster 3 of 8 (38/o) free throws, compared to Jeweil's 11 of 24 (46%). Rebounds were even with 29 apiece. Both teanm also committed very few errors as Mankato had 10 turnovers and Jewel] 12. Mblly Kinsey led all ~orv~ with 14 points. Next were Deb Bonoit and M/chelle Benoit with 6, Julie Malcom 4, Tracey Anderson 3, and Deb Doyle and Angle Malcom 2. Michel]e Benoit dominated the boards by pulling down 10 rebounds. Molly Kinsey had 7, Julie Malcom 6, Dob Benoit 3. Crystal Colson 2, and Tracey Anderson 1. This was the last game for Seniors Tracey Anderso~, Crystal ~, and Julie MaP com. Their skills and leader- ship will surely he missed. The Lady Cougars would like to thank everyone who helped at the games, the man. agars sad ststiaticisas, Eliza. beth He|l; Lisa Thomas, and Al/cia Ahlvers, shet chart keeper Don Agderson, as- s~stsat ~h Vernie Hendri~, Mr. Boyles, Mr,. Herb/g, and Start Ozmun~ Most impor- tantly, we would like to thank the parents and fans who generously supported us throughout the season. --Coach Marsha Kostor We~acur~ ~WEI~ COUNTY ~RECORD MANKATO VS. BURR OAK The first round of the regional tournament started out on a sueceseful note here Tuesday, Feb. 22, against the Burr Oak Braves as the Mankato Cougars advanced to the semi-final round with a 51-34 victory. The final mar- gin was not indicative of the type of game it was as the Braves hung within striking distance until the last~two minutes when the Cougars hit some layups to put the win on ice. Mankato jumped out to a 13~ first quarter lead.but, in spite of 7-10 field goal shoot- ing the second quarter, saw their lead shrink to 5 at the halfttme break, 27-22. This :was due primarily to the efforts of "Scott Kimminau who scored 19 of his 14 points during this period. A defensive switch at half- time to a 1-3-1 defense sue- cessfully bottled uEthe inside of the Braves' attack and the margin for Mankato was boosted to 35-24. The Braves, however, refused to fold and pulled within 7 several times on the fine outside shooting of Roger Buckley. The Cougars wound down the dock, spread their offense and were then able to get some layups at the end to provide them with their biggest margin of the game. Burr Oak, coached by Gary Scheen, is one of the most improved teams in the league, and they have been very competitive in the last month.
