The Panthers of Coach George Zamberlan, who had defeated the Eagles in Charles Town earlier by an 84-60 score, had expected trouble from Hedgesville Tuesday night, but not as much as they ran into. And had the Eagles had a better shooting night both from the floor and at the foul line, they would have pulled a real upset on one of the top Class AA teams in the state. The Panthers outshot the Eag- les 60-percent to 35-percent from the floor and they out-rebounded them 50 to 37. But they also out- fumbled them by a wide margin, committing at least 35 turnovers against the Hedgesville press, and therein lies the story of how the Class A Eagles almost got even with the Panthers for their prev- ious defeat. Provided Powerful Punch TURN TO PAGE 2--E For Coach Bob Rizzo's Tigers, the victory was their 7th in con- ference play against nine loses and their 10th in regular season play against nine defeats. They meet Brunswick Md:, High in their final game of regular sea- son play. The Tigers dominated the first half of play with leads of 25-20 at the end Of the first period and 55-42 at halftime. Algin Garrett hit for 24 points in this first half and Don Jackson 19. In the third period St. Joe led by Rabbit Kirkpatrick and Steve Crowell, closed the gap to 67-65 and in the home-stretch the Cru- saders overtook the Tigers and went in front 90-89 on the stren- gth of the shooting of Ran Catlett and Mike Kneisley.
