Cougars Lose Prior to the start of the big basketball game Thursday night, January 12, in the Mar- tinsburg fieldhouse between the Martinsburg High Bulldogs and the Jefferson High Cougars, Tim Brinkley, head coach of the Cougars, said, "I believe we can play right along with the highly rated and veteran laden Bulldogs even though we are limited in guard strength". And he was right. The Cougars not only played on equal terms with the Bulldogs, but at times led them before losing a heart- breaking 71-64 decision in overtime. L out to a big 14-0 lead and in- creased it to 24-2 by halftime. At the end of the third period it was 35-6. Benjamin led the Panther scoring with 9 points, while Stewart had 7; Bill Smith 7 and Jenkins 6. This was the 6th consecutive victory for the Panthers. In the second game of the doubleheader, Coach Harry Barker's 9th grade Panthers also rolled to their 6th con- secutive victory by edging Aylor 46-30. Charles Town held a slim 8-5 first period lead and were still up only 14-12 at the halfway point. But in the third period, the Panthers really broke the game open by scoring 21 points to 10 for Aylor to move out to a 33-22 margin. Bruce Smith led the scoring for Charles Town with 15, while Clem had 8. , In the stretch, the lack of a strong bench at the guard post, did hurt the Cougars slightly when regular Bruce Sbanton had to he sidelined for a time with leg muscle cramps. But actually it was the great foul shooting of the Bulldogs that won the ball game for them in the overtime. The seven-point margin by which the Bulldogs defeated the Cougars, is somewhat mis- leading in that the battle was much closer throughout except in the final minute of overtime play. At no time in the ball game until the final overtime whistle did more than five points separate the two teams.

The Bulldogs shot then the lead changed only once in the overtime period ferent times before and they hit on it. knotted the score at At the same time in the overtime, Jefferson just could not seem to get the ball to drop through the hoop even though they tried as many as a half dozen 'shots. An indication of the closeness of the battle is provided in the fact that there were 13 times in the ball game that the score tied and 12 times that the lead changed from one team to another. Then there was the con- troversial call as the buzzer sounded ending the third quarter when Kevin Roman, who had 16 points in the game, hit on a shot which would have tied the score at 51-51. But the officials over- ruled the basket despite the objections of Cougar Coach Brinkley and the "boos" of the i hundreds of Jefferson spec-i tators. Brmkley stud after the game, "there was no doubt Roman's shot at the end of the third period was air-borne before the buzzer went off". In the opening quarter, neither team seemed to be able to find the range of the basket and the Bulldogs scored only 11 points and the Cougars 8. The second period was un- i doubtediy the poorest played ;part of the game, with both teams committing a host of mistakes, but still both doing much more scoring than in the first period. The Cougars managed to outscore Mar- tinsburg by a slim 23-22 margin and trailed by only 2 paints at the halfway mark.
