What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Dillon T ribune - Wedn tomber 24, 1997 - Paqs ï . - ï \ p a t fM l tts# The Dillon Lady Beavers easily handled Central A opponents Butte Central and Belgrade last week to stretch their season mark to 4-2 and increase the odds that they will be ranked higher than fifth in this week's power poll. . Dillon routed Butte Central 56- 42 in Dillon Thursday night in a game which provided Dillon the opportunity to work on bringing {he ball up against pressure de­ fense. Butte Central has a short hunch, but they worked hard and Dillon handled the pressure with ease. I Dillon was led in scoring by Mandi Carver with 22 and saw fen Edwards assert herself on the offensive ends both nights. Ver­ sus Central, Edwards hooped 18, $nd Alison Burlingame added 12. serve Lyndsey Lalicker had her est scoring game with 9 points and grabbed a team-high eight re­ bounds. * Dillon off guard Jamie cDowell sat the game out with a ee problem giving Laura Scott n opportunity for more playing :ime. And that highlighted the week­ end as Dillon easily crushed Bel­ grade, 3-1 going into the game, giv- ng Dillon coach Kami Kennedy nore time to work on her bench. Belgrade featured two six- ooters and a zone look on defense, lillon handled the change in de­ fensive philosphy quite easily in icoring the 73-48 win. Carver knocked down 19, Idwards 16, Burlingame 12 and Leslie Williams 10 as Dillon forked the ball inside on the zone. | Dillon outrebounded the tall Belgrade girls 37-26 with Carver hauling in 14. ! \We played pretty well over in Belgrade and came out with good Intensity and again as in the Butte Central game, I think our defense treated a lot of scoring opportu­ nity right from the beggining.\ j Leading the Dillon defenders were Carver and Lalicker with two blocks each, and Burlingame with |even steals over the weekend. » Dillon forced Central into 18 turnovers and Belgrade into 20. &CHS Cross country runners stay on road for two meets * TKtv Ranvora „rHV, „ ik . kc Nnt.hnninl Kellev andTnhvRnRrnp Nathanial Kellev: 20:29 The Beavers cross-country ¿Bams competed at Butte High’s &tet at Stodden Park at the High- fapd Golf Course on Tuesday, Sept. } 6 . » The B3eavers competed with blissoula and Bozeman AA teams fjar the firt time this year.

But you can see we’ve got two pretty dam good quarter­ backs. Onejusthadabadday,the other had a good day.” Kludt said Molyneaux earned the starting job in spring ball. Duchien was previously in the pro­ gram but transferred to Linfield College last year before coming back for this campaign. Duchein is a junior. “I think ability-wise they’re pretty dam equal, confidence-wise they’re pretty darn equal, it’s pretty hard tough to separate the two.” While Western played two quar­ terbacks, Humboldt ran three dif­ ferent signal callers in and out of the game in a truly unsettled quar­ terback situation. They combined for 19 completions on 33 attempts for 176 yards. Western offensive guard Dan Perina went down in the second quarter with a strained knee. Kludt was unsure o f the timetable, but felt the 6-4, 300 pound sopho­ more would soon return. The Western Montana College women’s golf team completed the Grizzly Fall Classic at Missoula Country Club sixth place versus Big Sky Conference opponents in action that concluded Tuesday af­ ternoon. The home standings University of Montana won the meet with a three round total of 940, topping runner-up Eastern Washington by 14 strokes. Western, in their first year o f competitive golf, trailed the field with a 1,208 stroke count on the par 72, 5,865 yard course. The Lady Bulldogs brought up the rear in the individual stand­ ings as well, placing 28th through 33rd. Only Allyson Bowers of Gonzaga finished lower than any of the WMC golfers, with a 343 stroke count and 34th place finish. Kori Brown led WMC with a 293, with Janell Taylor just one stroke back. Linda Jordan, a new face on the team, placed 32nd with a score o f 332.

College rodeo Continued from page A-9 to place at a college rodeo for the first time in his career. Of the Western independents, Zane Solomon and Brandon Proue were able to place and take points away from the opposition. Solomon made it back to the short go in bareback riding and scored a 67 for second place in the round and second in the average. Proue and his team roping partner Shawn Detienne of Montana State went into the short round in ninth place but tied up their steer in 9.1 sec­ onds for third in the round and their two-head combined time was good for third place in the average. “There w e s a lot of uneven cattle in the draw-/ said Proue of Brookman’s timed event stock. “It was more of a drawing contest than an ability contest.” The women’s team failed to score a point and slid back in the standings a bit, but no team has really taken charge in the region standings yet which is good and well for the WMC ladies. CNFR qualifiers Rachael Myllymaki and Cally Go jins have sat out their three rodeo transfer penalty and are ready to hit the arena for West­ ern. With seven rodeos left on the schedule, there is plenty of time for Western to make a move on current region leader Montana Stale. ‘‘Evervbodv or: the team has potential,” said WMC’s Sharon Redding. “We had four breakaway ropers that came back in the short go and one back in the short go for goat tying. Talli Nelson tipped a barrel to win the long go in barrel racing, so it was just the luck of the draw and the way things hap­ pen. We had some bad luck.” The women did have bad luck, but as Redding explained, team members were in position to score points. Nelson timed 17.1 in the barrel racing and 17.3 won the round, but the penalty for tipping a barrel put Nelson out of the short go. So there were a lot of potential points there just as there were in the ether c-’cr.t~ \\'rib' v o n r '. ;i. t 1- i r .' t' r all the way around,” said WMC coach Ole Else of the women’s team. “There’s sure some bright spots. We came back real tough, but it just didn’t happen in the short go.” “We got skunked. There’s no other way to put it.” Western made the trip to Glen­ dive with 47 contestants and 36 horses. They left most of the horses back east since they return this Thursday for a double rodeo in Miles City. Tate Woodard is a WMC rodeo dub member and the horses were left at his families feed lot in Glendive. “His mom, Jnnni Lon, is keep- \c~s ~ci. ?-r> cbi’,s r Dillon gridders Outside the arc Dillon's Laura Scott fires up a three-pointer versus Butte Central during Thursday night's win over the Central A rival. Because of an injury to Jamie McDowell, Scott earned her first varsity start that night, j . p . Plutt photo The Dillon Beavers hosted Lewistown, a Central A playoff hopeful, Friday night in Dillon and lost 31-19 in a contest determined by Dillon’s turnovers and the con­ trol of the offensive line of scrim­ mage by the Eagles. Dillon, still reeling from key personnel losses the week before in Butte, fell behind 24-6 in the third quarter, rallied for two touch­ downs to cut the lead to five points, 24-19, and then were put away on a 63-yard touchdown pass and carry by Lewistown. The injury bug continued to haunt Dillon on the first play of the game as Luke Pannell was lost for the season with a dislocated knee cap. Pannell plays both the slot back on offense and end on the other side of the ball, costing the Beavers two starters. “We just didn’t have a back-up that plays his position that was physical enough to handle some of the blocking schemes that he does so it really kind o f threw us in a little disarray right off the bat,” said Dillon coach Terry Thomas. Pannell provided key blocking on the outside from the slot back position that helped Chad Rice get outside on sweeps and tosses. Without his block, Dillon had to drop the plays from the game plan. In the Dillon system, the out­ side run sets up the inside run and vica-versa. They compliment each other and when they’re working, the passing game gets going. Pannell’s iryury put a serious crimp in the Dillon offensive’ strategy. On top of that, Lewistown brought one o f their best team’s in a long time to Dillon. Coach Gary Gebert has 26 seniors on the ros­ ter, the most? he’s had in the ten years he’s been at Lewistown. He says they’ve had success in junior high and subvarsity so it’s not sur­ prising the team has playoff aspi­ rations this year. “They’re a pretty confident bunch,” said Gebert. “They think they can get the job done this year.” Dillon opened the scoring after recovering a fumbled kickoff. With a short field, Dillon drove 30 yards in three plays, the last being a 24- yard Joe Lucon run to the end zone. Lewistown gave the majority of the offensive work to fullback Eric Jeidi who would gain 116 yards on 31 carries and score two touch­ downs. The key to the Eagle suc­ cess was their line work, especially that of Dusty Dobdell, a 6-1, 250- pound senior. “The difference I thought was the offensive and defensive lines,” said Gebert. “I thought we had a little more experience up there than we did in the past.” Thomas agreed with Gebert’s assessment. “Overall, Lewistown is a real good football team and we give them a lot of credit. They palyed well on offense, defense and special teams and basically for the most part throughout the evening handled the line of scrimmage.” Compounding Dillon’s problems were costly turnovers. The Bea­ vers lost three fumbles and threw two interceptions. “Lewistown was strong enough up front that they could just ham­ mer the ball in when they had the short field and came away with points and that was probably the difference in the game,” said Tho­ mas. Lewistown’s last score in the first half came on a 32-yard field goal by Eric Harrison, a senior who kicked a state record 9 extra points in a game last week versus Brown­ ing and for his career has con­ nected on 23 straight extra points and six straight field goals. Dillon came back strong in the third quarter with a touchdown by Chad Rice from three yards out and a Pete Lucon touchdown re­ ception from Just Humphrey. But the big pass play from Lewistown stole the momentum back. Rambling Twin Bridges running back Cody Atkins burst through the Arlee line during a game last Friday. Twin crushed Arlee, 36-0. Twin surprises; Sheridan, Lima fall If you were at the Twin Bridges versus Arlee game you would have thought Arlee had an awful good chance of winning with their 6-5 quarterback and six players over 200 pounds. And after getting pounded by Philipsburg the week before, Twin had doubts of their own. Then the game started and Twin started hammering away at those big boys and at the end won the game 36-0. \We were questioning ourselves before that game after what hap­ pened in Philipsburg,\ said Twin Bridges coach Rob Lott. \So it was a pleasant surprise for me and I'm proud of the team for the way they came and played.\ Mark Stonebraker led the way offensively and defensively. The running back started the route car­ rying the ball for Twin's first three touchdowns and he also led a fierce defensive attack with 15 tackle. On the defensive side, Elex McAlcar had 14 tackles and Cody Atkin~ bad 13. L-' :t felt the ply. c f 1c- r c:kr;-i as IV V1 \in. for 73 yards, Cody Atchison added 40 yards on 10 carries and McAlear toted lO times for 10 yards. Brooks Todd added an intercep­ tion return for a touchdown in the third period, one of three Twin in­ terceptions. Sheridan hosted Harrison/En- nis and just couldn't get the pass­ ing game untracked in the 54-8 loss. Four interceptions and a couple fumbles led to the lopsided score. Sheridan managed 83 yards through the air and 89 on the ground with Don Hanni and Jus­ tin Maddison carrying the ball, Mike Burke throwing it, and Mark Troyer, Mike Walters and Greg Leary catching it. Lima ran into one of the top six- man team’s in the state at Reedpoint and felt it in a 70-25 losss.
