In what could be perceived by some as a preview of the upcoming February 6th first half playoff match between Hooterville and Eagle Heights, the Express pulled into the station 21 points ahead of the Screaming Eagles late last Thursday night. Randy Schmid and Pat Dann snatched 111 points for Eagle Heights with no other Eagle breaking 100. Opie Taylor and John Scheidegger (Hooterville) lost only their sixth game to Terry Zahler and Clarence Bierman to finish with a steaming hot 115 points. So, the stage is now set for Tuesday’s match. Will Hooterville continue on their roll, or have they awakened the Screaming Eagles?

In Belleville, the 111 points recorded by Kurt Beutel and Jim Gehin propelled the J&M Bar River Rats out of their siesta long enough to nibble a 20-point win away from the Norsk Pranksters.

With their streak increasing to eight straight losses, five this half, the Cheese Eaters remain alone in the cellar after the 28-point extermination delivered by their host, the Norsk Cowboys. The Pipe Benders, also with the home court advantage, brought their “A” game to their match against the Hay Shakers. Although, they found themselves down by two at the end of the fourth round, Jones’ Plumbing fabricated a perfect fifth round to put them up by 15. They never looked back as they hung on to shake loose an 8-point win over Kleeman’s.

The match between 5th Quarter and It’s Time produced the high and low scores for the week, both recorded by the Mounties. Losing only their third game to Derek and Randy Skogen, Mounties Curt Herfel and Jim Day captured 116 points, while Janice Magnuson and John Baumgartner were thrown from their mounts rounding up just 64 points. The Shufflers dealt up an ambush, trouncing It’s Time by 27 points.

Standings: 5th Quarter 4-1; Hooterville Express 4-1; Norsk Cowboys 4-1; J&M Bar 3-2; Kleeman’s 3-2; Eagle Heights 2-3; Jones’ Plumbing 2-3; Norsk Pranksters 2-3; It’s Time 1-4; S’wisco Taphaus 0-5.
