Cowgirls defeat Bucs at Buzzer The Lemmon Cowgirls with a large and supportive fan base made their trip worthwhile on Dec. 19 by defeating the Buccaneers with an of- fensive rebound and a put-back to end the game 63-61 at the buzzer. The game was close all 32 min- utes with a first quarter tie 17-17. Beach took the half-time lead 36-35 and also led at the end of three 50- 47. The determined Cowgirls, how- ever, outscored the Lady Bucs 16-11 in the fourth quarter to take home the winning prize. Two years ago, the Lemmon Cowgirls came to Beach undefeated and left undefeated, winning by three. The road has been good for both teams the last four years as both teams win on the road against each other. Last year the Bucs won on the road in a close game, and four years ago the Bucs picked up another road win against Lemmon. It has become a very good game for both teams and the Lemmon fans recognized it fill- ing up their side of the bleachers. The last four years, each of the games has been decided by less than three points. It's a great "non-re- gional" game for both teams when they get together and the series is tied 2-2. Lemmon: 17, 35, 47, 63 Beach: 17, 36, 50, 61 Lemmon: Katie Sackmann, 24; Morgan Ham, 18; Bailie Beer, 8; Hallie Kocer, 7; Brady Beer, 2; Aubrey Weishaar, 2; Taylor Drayton, 2. Beach: Abby Wilhelmi, 17; Brooklyn Zachmann, 14; Taylor Abraham, 8; Ashlynn Dietz, 8; Baili Nielsen, 8; Sofia Muruato 6. Three-pointers: L 6 (Sackmann 4, Bailie Beer 1, Kocer 1), B 2 (Wil- helmi 1, Zachmann 1). Free throws: L 7-9, B 10-16. Total fouls: L 11, B 12. Records: L4-0, B 4-2. We have lost two games now Roundball Fever By Bob Waldal going into Christmas vacation. The loss against New Town was very dis- appointing as the inexperience showed up as we were not mentally ready for the game. Losing to teams that we are better than is so disap- pointing when everyone puts so much time into the game. Both the players and our coaching staff must always be reminded that we are going to get our opponents' best ef- fort. So we have to always match the intensity of our opponent and come out and play the game at a high level and play it with enthusiasm. We are learning. Losing to Lemmon was every- thing that we constantly talk to our kids about and that is by doing the little things the right way. In order to beat the good teams, we need to be mentally focused and execute the "little" things - that is the recipe for success. Our effort was great and we couldn't have been any happier. Our players stuck together and they com- peted hard. We had two lane viola- tions that cost us two points and we gave up some easy baskets because we didn't close the seams in our de- fense to get the help that we needed. We work on all of that but obviously not enough and that will change. Blocking out on the boards cost us some points and that combination cost us the game on Friday. With all of that we will challenge ourselves to correct the things that we have control of and become a much better team. Our girls have a very good attitude and it is very ob- vious during our practices. We will become a better team. SCOREBOARD There will be a vacant chair at Olson's Service in Sentinel Butte after January. Longtime resident, Harvey Minks, who has been a daily visitor at the station for many years, will be moving to Grand Forks to live closer to his son, David Minks. He was born and raised in Omania, Minn., and once out of school, joined the Army. Out of the service in 1946, Minks then went to Minneapolis and met a young man close to his age. The two decided to go to telegraph school, going to St. Paul to the Northern Pa- cific Railroad (NPRR) for their edu- cation in that. The NPRR sent them to Glendive, Mont., in August 1947, then on to Custer, Mont., where they were "broke in" in five days, His friend was sent to Hysham, but left the next day to return to Min- nesota. The NP meanwhile sent Har- vey back to Glendive, then once more to Custer. From there he was sent to Park City, Mont., in November. In 1948, Minks put in abid and was then transferred to Marsh, Mont. He met his wife June at a restaurant in Marsh and the two were married in September 1953. After their marriage they remained in Marsh, which was about 25 miles from Glendive. Their two children, Sandra and David, were both born while living there. When that station closed in 1958, the family moved to Golva. They bought the home Harvey currently lives in 1961 from A. L. Martin, and continued to work in Golva until that station was closed in 1969. Minks then went to work at the Beach depot as a railroad agent until its closing in 1985, where he then transferred to the Wibaux depot, retiring two years later in 1987. Harvey worked for both the Northern Harvey Minks Pacific and Burlington Northern dur- ing his time with the railroad and has lived in Sentinel Butte for 53 years. A get-together on Sunday, Jan. 4, will give many friends and neighbors an opportunity to wish him farewell be- fore he moves to his new home. Please support your local merchants!
