2g SIDNEY HERALD $pom WEDNESDAY, I Sidney girls look to add to win column Coming off a one-point, 60- 59 win over Laurel Friday night and a 61-44 victory over Huntley Project Saturday, the Sidney girls look to remain unbeaten in the 2003-2004 sea- son. Their foes this weekend include Poplar Friday and de- fending state "B" champions Wolf Point Saturday. Wolf Point is coming off a 10-point win over Chinook and 68-21 victory over Brock- ton. Three girls for Wolf Point have the potential for scoring double figures, Abby Douglas, Mary Zilkoski and Stephanie Neubauer. Poplar, although falling to Malta by a 57-37 margin, boasts a high scorer in Ashley Azure as well.

BY OUANE llORlff SIDNEY HERALD Following a tough 66-63 loss to Laurel Friday and a 6948 win over Powell, WY. Saturday, Sidney's boys look to take on Poplar at home Friday and Wolf Point on the road Satur- day. A very quick team that likes to push the ball up the court, Poplar is coming off an 87-61 win over Chinook over the weekend and was led by Leon Red Eagle with 29 points. Although Sidney got itself into minor foul trouble over the weekend, Head Coach Rol- lie Sullivan believes a man-to- man defense will be Sidney's defense of choice against Poplar. "Red Eagle is a very right- handed player that like to pen- etrate, but I believe we have the players to do a nice job on him defensively," Sullivan said. "We're not going to add anything defensively, but just improve on what we're doing. Hopefully, we can play man against them without getting into foul trouble." Full-court pressure by the Indians is expected as Poplar will try to control the temp with a run and gun style. Because of this, Sullivan stresses that Sidney can't get caught up in this style of bas- ketball. '~lthough we still need to score in our transition, we can't push it up on every occa- sion. We'll probably have to slow it down somewhat com- pared to last weekend," Sulli- van said. "I think they*ll have a hard time guarding our big kids. The biggest thing with Poplar is to make them play at a speed they're not comfort- able with." Although Sullivan didn't know a lot about Wolf Point at the time of the interview, he stressed that the Eagles just have to worry about cleaning things up internally. "Right now, we're our biggest enemy," Sullivan said. ,'We have to worry about what we're doing on both ends of the court before we start wor- rying about what other teams are doing." Game time for the home game against Poplar is sched- uled for 7:30 p.m. sp0rts@sidneyhemld.c0m try OUANE NORIff SIDNEY HE~LD Fairview and Savage's boys prepare this week to go head to head in a game promising to highlight inside strength and tough man-to-man de- fense. Both teams are coming off a pair of weekend victories as Savage defeated Terry (51-39) and Westby (6844) while Fairview downed Culbertson (61-58) and Hinsdale 67-32). Savage's inside play of Chris Albright and Jerrit Schmierer will be matched by the post play of Fairview's Craig Selvig and Kelsey Wiltzen. "I think we have to establish ourselves inside to start things off, and if a double team occurs, we need to know where it is coming from," Sav- age Coach Wade Hagler said. "Last weekend against Terry, we got off to a slow start offen- sively. When you struggle at An experienced Savage squad is in preparation this week to take on a youthful, yet talented Fairview team. Although Savage has the edge in the post play depart- ment, Fairview's outside game has the potential to be a lethal weapon. Savage is coming off a tough one-point, 34-35 loss to Terry Friday while Fairview suffered two defeats at the Culbertson Tip-Off- the first to Culbertson (66-46) and the second to Hinsdale (67-26). Although a 20-point loss to a tough Cowgirls team, Fairview' perimeter play by Ivana Norby and Alissa Klose helped the team come to with- in six points of Culbertson twice in the second period of play. As previously mentioned, Savage's strength not only lies I one end of the court ly have to pick er end. We were able t the game because of fense tinue out the season."

In a non-league game against Hazen-Beulah Satur- day, Richland skated to a 5-2 victory. Rich]and 12 Valley City o It didn't take long for the Rangers to reach the score- board as Brady McDoweil scored off an assist from Josh Kringen with just 52 seconds into the game. With 3:28 re- maining in the first period, Jerry John Kessler received an assist from John Kalberer to score Richland's second goal. An unassisted goal by Kelly Berndt at the one- minute mark ended the scor- ing for the period with the Rangers out in front, 3-0. McDowell again hit the back of the net at the 12:47 mark in the second period off an assist from David Cavanaugh. Tyler Thiel and Cavanaugh scored unassisted goals 35 sec- onds apart beginning at the 9:36 mark to help Richland to a lead of 5-0. Josef Kallevig, with 6:53 left in the second, re- ceived an assist from Thiel as Richland controlled a 7-0 lead heading into the final period. An assist from Cavanaugh to Kringen scored for the Rangers with just over two minutes gone in the third. Berndt scored his second goal of the game at the 12:55 mark off an assist from Thiel.

The score remained tied at 2-2 heading into the final peri- od of play. At the 8:13 mark, Kringen again scored for the Rangers off a McDowell as- sist. With assists from Thiel and Berndt, Sergent helped Richland build a 4-2 lead over Beulah. A final goal by Kringen for a hat trick led to the 5-2 Rich- land victory. Cavanaugh and Mike Kunda were credited with Kringen's third goal of the game. Goalie McDowell ended the game with 27 saves. With a second-place f'mish at the Minot Invitational and a first-place finish this past weekend at the Eagle Invitational, Sidney prepares this week to take on Bel- grade in a dual match Thursday. The Ea- gles then compete at the Mining City Du- als in Butte Friday and Saturday. "We didn't have the emotion I felt we needed to have in Minot. This last week- end, though, we really came out a wres- tled physically and aggressively. All of our final matches were tight," Coach Guy Melby said. "We're very tough on our feet because we spend so much time on that in practice. But in preparation for Butte, we have to concentrate on our mat wrestling this week." The match against Belgrade Thursday will be a nice prelude to the duals tourna- ment as Sidney doesn't have the opportu- nity to see Belgrade until the state tour- nament. Melby also notes that Belgrade is a very deep team. "This will'be a good test for us. Bel- grade had 64 kids out and go three-four deep in each weight class," Melby said. The Butte Duals also holds a good chal- lenge for Sidney as schools, western schools as well as tough "B" and "C" schools will compete at the tournament. "This is a great tournament for us. We'll be able to compete against other state-ranked teams from the west like Pol- son, Corvallis, Columbia Falls and White- fish." Following the Butte tourney, Sidney will travel to Miles City Dec. 16 and War- ford City Dec. 18 for dual matches. The Eagles' first home match is against Glen- dive Jan. 6. Sidney's Gresh Melby goes for a lokmlown against John Lolhom, Hordtng County, S.0. Ranger Peewees plit at home The Richland Ranger Pee Wees opened their season this weekend with two home games. Friday, the pee wees posted a win over the Wafford City Oilers. Trailing 1-0 after one period, the home team scored the next four goals and came away with a 4-1 win. Matt Harris scored the first Ranger goal on an assist from John Bris- ben. Tyler Christensen scored the go-ahead goal also assisted by Brisben. Brisben scored the final two goals aided by a Lyle Peters assist. The Ranger defense manned by Chris Nygaard, Matt Don- van, Keanne Fink and Bran- don Kringen in goal was excel- lant. Sunday, the pee wees came up short and lost to Bottineau. The final tally was 8-2. Bot- tineau broke a close game open by scoring five goals in the third period. Robert Swenson and Bris- ben scored the Ranger goals with assists recorded by Har- ris and Nygaard. Also con- tributing to the Ranger effort this weekend were Landon Smith, Skyler Hardy, Jordan Sveet, Grant Christensen and Kameron Milne. The Pee Wees' next action is Dec 13-14 at a tournament in Bismarck, N.D.
