Estherville Daily News (Newspaper) - January 5, 1987, Estherville, Iowa / Esthervllle (la.) Dally Newt. MONDAY, January 5. 1W7-8 ffOKTN STAR or IOWASPORTS Roede shoots down Joys for chompionship ByTOMWILLUMS Sports Edltor JACKSON, Minn. - The state of Minnesota has probably seen enough of thè E^s^erville Midgets by now. Thé 'Midget boys' basketball team tottk 'home iti third Minnesota ttìurnament trophy in as many years with a 76-4S> demolition of an out^manned Jackson, Minn. unit. Estherville became the Jackson Holiday Tournament champions for the second straight year with Saturday night's victory, the top-ranked Midgets' sixth win against no defeats. Thfe Blue Jays were throttled by the more physical Midgets last January, 62-M. In that game, junior guard Craig Arment tortured the Jays with several fourth quarter points. Hie Midget defense kept the Jays to just 16 points in the second half while the champions cashed in 35 poiiAs to put the game way out of readi. Coach Tim Maaske was working without the services of Arment this time around. Arment has been sidelined since the holidays with a case of mono. Picking up the slack was senior starting point guard Todd Roede Roede had a quiet first half a^ the Blue Jays spread their defense out. In the second sUnza, however, the>n senior rii^>ed the nets for one downtown shot after another as the Jays decided to jam up the middle after being burned inside by the likes of the Moritz twins and by forward Wes, .Niles and guard Brad Bixby. It was the second straight night Roede has shown success from what would be three-point range under Iowa rules. Maaske said Roede has made a lot of progress with his shooting skills, attributing most of the success to better shot judgement "He's not forcing his shots anymore. He's beginning to be more patient and working the MU in." He added that Roede is on the road to booming one of the best point guards in northwest loyfa. One of the many reasons the Midgets are undefeated at this point in the season is because^ Its defense and balanced scoring. Saturday's win proved that. The Midgets held Jackson, a team that went.into they^m-pionship contest with a 5-1 mark, to just 45 points. The same Midgets kept Minnesota's seventh-ranked Springfield to only 51 points. At the same time, the Midgets have proven that opposing teams cannotxoncentrate their efforts on one player and expect to shut down Estherville. The team has had at least three scorers in double figures for six straight games now. Roede led a pack of four double digit Midgets with a season high 21 points Saturday. Dave Moritz dumped in 16 points and Bbcby and Niles offered 12 and U respec-. tivdy. It appears that everytlme the Midgets take to the court, tl^ been getting better and better. Maaske ha^y talks about his team's new-f^d suceeM at offensive rebounding. That area of the game has been one of the few weak pdnts for the Midgets at times. "Being able to gain second and third shots is the mark of a really good team," Maaske said. Estherville has been averaging about 35 or 36 rebounds per game lately and Maaske says die reason for that is his players have learned to attack the boards moreMidget JV tags Lakefield with first ever loss JACKSOii, iMinn. ^ While Esther^le's varsity was disposing of Jackson for the varsity championship of the Jackson Holiday Tournament, the Midget junior varsity was busy claiming the JV trophy over at the^ddle School gym. Esth^pvBK'C^t a very good Lak^idd, Minn, team in a 43-41 squeaker. A^hat makes such a win so special is not ' that it gave Esthorville a clean sweep of the Jackson Tournament. The Midgets, in winning the game, handed a loss to a group of players who have not tasted defeat since they began the seventh grade. The Midgets had to beat out two ireviously unbeaten squad^to win le tournament. They themselves brought with them a respectable 4-1 mark. Estherville led the entire game after going up 6-1 in the early £ going. Lakefield found itself trailing by nine at the half. After that, Lakefield began playing shooting well, said Midget coach Denny Housman. That, Qombined with some Estherville turnovers allowed Lakefield to narrowlhe gap before the Midgets settled down. The Midgets won the game on free throws as Lakefield was forced to foul towards the end. "It's a big win, no dDubt about it," said Houseman. He added that Estherville played a pretty sound defensive game to improve its record to 5-1. od Miki wi^ 12 e Guge and 10 Van UndeU and paced Estherville points.

Eight grappling squads from around the area participated in the ^ent. These included Estherville, Spirit Lake,^ Emmetsburg, Spencer, Fairmont, Miim., Algona, Sibley-Ocheyedan and Pocahontas. The main reason for the tournament, according to Estherville's wrestling coach Ron Swanson, wjis to "give the kids some experience." This tournament was run a l»t differently than others. There w||i;« 19 different ¿lasses with four'«-dividual wrestlers from diffei«nt towns in each class. Each class contained wrestlers who were of comparable wdght and ability to insure that each of the matches would be competitive. This gave the kids a chance to go at it with some one with nearly the same talents as their own. Each grapplér wrestled the other three people in their class. There was a first, second, third, and fourth place for each class. Estherville wrestlers fared well for the day. Eight Midgets wrestled in the .Journament and three ended up champions of their class by the close of the event. Esth^ille also had two second {daceand two third place finishers. "Everyone did a fine job," Swanson said. He was very pleased with the success of the tournament and its benefits to the participants. Fairmont had 18 wrestlars competing and seven champions. Spirit Lake had nine competing with one champion. Algona had eight competing and three champions. Emmetsburg had eight competing with two champions. Spencer had eight c(mi- pieting and one ciiampion. Pocahantas had seven competing and one champion. Sibley-Ocheydan had four competing and one diampion. Estherville's Chad Moffitt had an outstanding day pinning two of his three oppenents. The twelth class champion took Steven Ei^eid of Algona in a hard fou^t 4-3 match and then went on to pin Mark Wilson of Spencer in.3:04 and Steve Labash of Fairmont in 2:22. Class eight champion Troy Casp^rson had a fine day also pinning two of his three opponents, He pinned Terry Panbecker oif Pocahantas in 5:32 and Jeff Hatfield of Fairmont in-4:26. Class eleven, champ Chad Kaltved won all three of his matches. He beat out Brad Welle on a technical fall, 15-0. Kaltved then took Steve Wiseman of Spencer 9-5 lind then beat John Tiede of Fairmont 10-6. Others that did a fine job lor Estherville include Brad Jensen, Brian Jensen, Chad Houge, Mark Kraft and Dana Gee.

"They aren't just standing around anymore." "If we continue to avera^ around 36 boards per ¿ame,' Masske said, "we'll be hard to beat, if everything else remains constant."

Hie Midgets did faU apart for a short period of time ri^t before' halftime when four straight tii^ novers were converted to six straight Blue Jay points. Instead of lea^ by 16 points, the Mi^ets went to th¿ lockers holding a semi-slim 36-26 lead ^ When Roede began hitting from the outside in the second half, Jackstm seemed to lose any sort of coaM^ce they might have gained in the first half. What might have broken the camd's^ack was when Roede stole a ball and scored on a layup in the third quarter to hand Estherville a »«-39 lead. Maaske cleared his bench during yie remaining four minutes of the game.
