After jumping out to a great start, the waiter hoops team slumped in the latter part of the season to finish with a 3-2 record and one no decision.
The waiters opened the season with a convincing 60-36 win at Kennybrook. Harvey Mutterperl lead away with 16 points and David Druckman had 12 and Elmor Schwartz 11.
Druckman tossed in a game-high 26 points and Schwartz added 21 as Ranger stomped Olympus 76-73 at home.
Jeff Rivera, with 16 points, and Elmor, with 15, sparked the waiters to a 54-46 win over rival Lenni-Len-A-Pe.
With an appearance by Dancing Waldo before the largest crowd to ever witness a waiter game, the Ranger squad faced the Kutcher's Sports Academy. Following some clutch, down-the-stretch shooting by Druckman, Ranger was down 62-61, with one second to play and Druckman at the line for one-and-one. Presto!!! No KSA team. Nobody will ever know the outcome of the game. Sometime this winter David will try this foul shots at the P.S. 141 court. Meanwhile, Elmor lead the Ranger attack with 23 points, followed by Riviera's 16 and Bob Appadoo's 12.
Despite the off-the-bench, long range shooting by he Electron Taber, Ranger dropped the return game with Lenni-Len-A-Pe 54-49. Elmor again led the score with 14 and Tabs notched 10.
Ranger saved its finest shooting display for the finale at Olympus. In the process of the 54-49 loss, Elmor missed one dozen lay-ups, Taber missed a 3 foot jumper in the final thirty seconds, and Larry Hampel went 0-5 from the charity stripe. Jeff Rivera was the lone bright spot with 20 points.
