With the victory over the Wolves the Tigers complete their 1992 cam- paign with a record of 6-3. he Tigers wasted no time in gting on the scoreboard as T/avis Clabaugh took the open- ing kickoff 64-yards into the Wolves end zone. Scott Williams added the points after and Nelson lead 8-0. Clabuagh shined on the defen- sive side of the ball as well. Late in the first quarter the senior line- backer forced Loomis quarter- back Wade Holan to fumble in his own end zone. Although the Wolves recovered the football, two points were awarded to the Tigers on a saftey. The Nelson offense finally got a chance to put a scoring drive together as they went 35-yards in three plays to go up 16-0. It was Cass Corman capping off the In second half action, Nelson's Jeremy Gumaer took a pass from Corman and broke through sev- eral tackles on his way to a 43- yard touchdown.

Loomis did score on the Tigers as they marched 69-yards in 12 plays ending their drive on a 5- yard pass reception for a touch- down. However the Loomis comeback attempt was short lived.

Football coaches believe that mininfizing their opponents big- play capabilities is an obvious key to success. The Bruning- Davenort Bear-Cats, suffering through a winless 1992 season, would attes: to that axiom. A 39-8 setback to Shelby, on the season finale, was no excep- tion. Five of the six Huskie touch- downs accomued for 232-yards, half their game's total. Touch- downs jaunts of 70, 73, and 31- yards broke the spirit of the youth- ful Bear-Cat team. Even more devastating to the Bear-Cat efforts was a first quar- ter injury to sophomore quarter- back Mitch Kubicek. Shelby marched the opening kickoff 70- yards to take a 7-0 lead. Bruning-Davenport countered with a drive of its own. The Bear- Cats, utilizing one-back and no- back offensive sets, shredded the Huskie defense primarily on draws by Kubicck. "Mitch has the instincts and speed to cause the defense concern," coach Kevin Madsen stated. "That's what we were capitalizing on." Shelby switched to a 6-1 de- fense with its middle linebacker as a spy, a player assigned to mirror the quarterback. Kubicek drove his team 36-yards to the visitors' 27-yard line. On one of his patented scrambles, Kubicek was cut on the brow while being tackled by the face mask. Bruning-Davenport received a first down on the penality and were poised to score with the ball on the Shelby 12-yard line. How- ever Kubicck was out of the game. A fourth down pass was inter- cepted in the end zone to squash the Bear-Cat threat."I hadn't seen such a demoralizing impact on a teanl by the loss of one player," Madsen reflected. "It sure hap- pened to us." Although Kubicek returned on the next series, the damage to the Bear-Cat morale was done. Bruning-Davenport played the majority of the game s remain- ing minutes in its own territory until its fourth quarter score on a 12-yard run by junior Ryan Biltoft. Kubicek kept the option PAT in his own hands to com- plete the scoring. Biltoft had 50-rushing yards of the team's 154 total on his 10 carries. Backfield mate Brian Sieber recorded 40-yards. Sieber, playing in his last game, also registered six tackles in support of junior Gary Muehling who had eight stops. Muehling was the Bear-Cat's leading tackler on the season with 86. Two underclassmen also re- corded takeaways. Junior Matt Bohling intercepted his second pass of the season. Frcslman Matt Dm, se recovered a second half fumble. Nelson Tigers win 1st round in sub-districts The Nelson Lady Tiger volley- ball team turned in an imprcsswe 12-15, 9-15 win over Davenport Tuesday but returned to the court Thursday only to lose to Loomis in straight sets 15-11, 15-7. Coach Paul Shimek says that his team is looking a little lack luster following their conference The Daisy Girl Scout Troop No. 937 met last Thursday at 5 p.m. in the Presbyterian Church basement. Each girl answered roll call by telling how they would dress up for Halloween. A ghost wind sock was the project for the evening, which consisted of white material, a styrofoam ball and orange rib- bon. Each girl assisted in deco- rating the face.

This win over Davenport gave us the eight-man regular season championship to go along with the conference tournament title. Unfortunatl y, we didn't look real good doing it. We need to get back on the knife's edge that we were on against Shickley." Terry Kniep led the Tigers in the serving department with 11 of 12 and five aces. Taye Hanson finished the game going 11 of 15 and four aces. Junior Rachel Aksamit re- corded a perfect hitting perfor- mance against Davenport with 13 of 13 spikes and nine aces.

In the Loomis game the Tigers turned in a "lifeless" effort ac- cording to Coach Shimek and were quickiey defeated by the Lady Wolves. The high server for Nelson was Schleufer as she went nine of nine and recorded two aces. Kniep and Aksamit were again the leading hitters going 17 of 20 mad 21 of 25.
