Section A - Oakes Times, Thursday, December 22, 2011 Oakes Boys Basketball drop 2, but brought Cowbell back to Oakes! The week did not start out well for the Tornado cagers they crossed state lines to take on a familiar foe in the Britton Braves. The boys would fight and claw the whole game, es- pecially in the 1st 2 quarters. They would hold the Braves to a meager 30 points in the 1st half, while scor- ing 21 of their own. The 3rd quarter would find our boys scoring the 1 st 2 points of the 2nd half but it would be an uphill climb from there. Britton would tack on 15 points of their own and follow it up with a 22 point 4th quarter ef- fort. When all was said and done the Orange and Black would find them- selves on the short end of a 67-39 score. Quarter Scores 1 2 3 4 Final Oakes 7 14 8 10 39 Britton-Hecla 9 21 15 22 67 Scoring Oakes: Meehl 2, Maddock 9, Brandriet 2, Zetocha 12, Cordova 8, Quandt 2, Roney 3 Britton: Nickeson 11, Wenz 2, Goetert 23, Wegleither 15, Storley 2, Werner 6, Holland 3, Haney 2, Leite 2 The hardship continued of Thurs- day of last week as the Tornados would host the Bison of Milnor. This being a big district rivalry it would be easy for our boys to find motivation for the game. The Oakes 5 would run with the hot shooting Bison in the 1st half, but would find themselves still down 10 at intermission. The 2nd half shooting woes of the Tornados would carry over from the Britton game earlier in the week as they would be outscored 30-26 in the 3rd in 4th quarters. When all was said and clone our boys would drop their 2nd game of the week 67-53 Quarter Scores 1 2 3 4 Final Oakes 12 15 10 16 53 Milnor 17 20 15 15 67 Scoring Oakes: Meehl 11, Maddock 19, Zetocha 8, Visto 3, Cordova 2, Quan- dt 4, Roney 6 Milnor: Bussman 22, Martinson 4, Seefelt 6, Yagow 2, Hansen 13, Mund 20 The week for the Oakes boys bas- ketball team would end on a memo- rable note. Our boys would bring the Cowbell back to Oakes for the 1 st time in 3 years. It was a typical Cardinal-Tornado match in that, it was hard fought tooth and nail right down to the final minute of OVER- TIME. Fans from both sides cheer- ing at fantastic plays and jeering at questionable calls. It was a game for the ages. The game would start out well for the hometown boys and some hot shooting by senior, Simon Maddock, would get the Tornado offense start- ed off on the right foot. Our boys would take a slim 14-11 heading into the 2nd quarter. The 2nd quarter would be a Cardinal win as young up and coming star Adam White would lead our rivals to the west to a 27-26 halftime lead. The 3rd quarter would find both Oakes and Ellendale wondering if there was a cover on the rim as nei- ther team could buy a bucket. Only 9 points scored by the hometown and 6 scored by our foes would make for an epic ending as the score going into the 4th quarter was 35-33 Oakes. The last quarter of the Cowbell game was one to remember and just as the previous 3, very tight. The Orange and Black would bust out to as much as a 4 point lead numer- ous times in the final period but just could not shake those pesky Cardi- nals. At the end of regulation it was a game yet to be decided as the score was knotted up at 45. During the 4th Ellendale would make one mistake. They awoke a sleeping giant in the form of Adam Roney. Roney would score 6 of the of Oakes's 10 points in the 4th to lead the Tornados, he would also have 3 of Oakes's 7 points in overtime. Adam along with Senior Tanner Zetocha, would also keep Ellendale from grabbing those all important 2nd chance buckets as they used their strength to give Oakes the ad- vantage. It would all come down to the last seconds of play as a streaking Elllendale player's last second shot would fall short, giving the Tornados an exciting 52-51 win! The Cowbell will be sitting in Oakes this year and one could only hope for another ex- citing game like this next year!

Mary Wright and Jim Fiala transported Darlene Fregien to Al- ice, ND, where her daughter Twyla Laufenberg lives and where the family was holding their Christmas celebra- tion. Darlene has been a resident at Good Samaritan for nearly 12 years. Darlene has not always been able to leave the center because of health rea- sons. This is not the first time Mary has given of her personal time to en- sure Darlene has been able to spend time at family events. Mary took Darlene to Minneapolis to attend her granddaughters wedding, family re- unions, and accompanied Darlene to her husbands funeral. The Fregien family pay's all expense's incurred, gas and employee wages. Many facilities like Good Samaritan offer these services as a part of there day to day operations. Ava Maria in Jamestown, has a program called the "Dream Team" where employees sign up to be part of the team and when residents have family events that they would like to attend, this team makes it possible. The center provides trans- portation, and two employees accom- pany the resident. The administrator of Ava Maria has been known to take residents when staffing has been short. Ava Maria holds bake sales and fund raisers to pay for the outings. ', The Fregien family will be forev6r gratefull to Mary and Jim for their caring and kindness and all the oth6r staff members over the years that ha;e made it possible for Darlene to be able to attend special events. After all, with a name of Good Samaritan it sure does seem fitting that a resident travel program belongs at the center and that special people would work there.
