Midget League All-Stars Defeat Fathers, Mgrs.; Officials Down Fathers The Charles Town Midget Lea- gue AA-Stars proved to the lea- gue officials and managers Fri. day night that they were better than they had been given credit for being when they upset them 108-107 on the Charles Town High hardwoods. The team managers and league officials spotted" the Midgets Stars 60 points and that edge was just too much for the losers to over- come. In another game played Thurs- day night the Fathers of the Midget League players and the team managers and officials tang led and the fathers found the Managers and officials just too much to cope with, going down to defeat by a 98-37 score.

The score was knotted at 37-37 with only 1:37 left to play. A field goal and two foul shots by "Butch" Porter and two free throws by Jay Stw- art, featured the six-point Peters- burg rally. Coach Carroll Michael's Vikings had lost two regular season games to Moorefield by scores of 70-58 and 42-39. So this victory for the Vikings came as somewhat of a surprise to the large crowd of rams. The battle was a close one all the way, with the Vikings holding 13-11, 19-18 and 34-31 quarter leads. Friday night's battle between Charles Town and Petersburg is expected to be a real one since the two teams have divided a pair of games this season, and it was "these same two teams which batt- led it out in the Sectional finals on the Petersburg High game last March. Petersb urg. .s the defending sec tional champions, and they hold a victory over Charles Town, gained on their home floor sev- eral weeks ago.

As a result of their victories, when tournament action is resumed tcnight (Thursday), the pairings will find Harpers Ferry and Mussetman tangling in the first half of the double- header attraction at 7:30 p. m., with Hedgesville and Paw Paw meeting in the nightcap at 9 p. m. The winners of to- night's battles will meet in the tournament finals Friday night to decide the Sectional Class-A champions and who will represent the section in Region 2 play on the Potomac State gymnasium in Keyser the weekend of March 11-12. Following the championship game the usual tournament awards will be presented and an all4ournament team will be named. The Tigers, who hadn't tasted of victory but once in 16 games out this season, a February 4, win over Shepherdstown High, gained their second win of the season and their second over She pherdstown by a 73-72 score in the first half of Tuesday night's doubleheader cage show. In the nightcap it was the Hedgesville High Eagles, the pre- tournament favorites, who came through with a 77-66 victory over the West Virginia School for the Deaf from Romney. While the Hedgesville - W. Va. Deaf game had been billed as the feature attraction of the night, actually the opening game proved to be the most hotly contested and most exciting as it was not decided until the final seconds of play. It was a foul shot by Lee Ball- enger which broke a 72-72 tie and gave the Harpers Ferry team their victory margin. The tie- breaking foul shot provided a per- fect climax for a great come-back rally by the Tigers, who trailed John Miller, two by Kenny Lowe and one each by John Crowl and James Mahoney, plus four foul shots by Mahoney and one each by Crowl and Miller. Lee Ballen- ger led the scoring attack for the Tigers in that first period. By halftime the Tigers had closed the gap on Shepherdstown to 32-30 and in the third period the two teams played on almost even terms. Johnny Lowe and James Maho- hey were the top scorers for Shepherdstown with 13 points each, while Sago Garett was top man for Harpers Ferry with 19. In the second game, Hedges- ville took an early lead and stay-I Worse".,,',, ed in front all the way. They led by 21-18, 41-26 and 56-48 quarter scores. The Shepherdstown High Card- inals will be one team that will be glad when this basketball sea- son ends, as it has been the most disastrous season for them in years. They dropped their 13th consecutive game and their 19th of the season Friday night on the Musselman High hardwoods by a 94-75 score. It was Steve Saville, who turn- ed in his best offensive perfor- mance of the season, with 32 points, who did the real damage to the Cardinals who shot only a sub-par 32-percent from the floor The Cardinals gave the Apple- men a close game of it during the first period, but early in the sec- ond stanza with Saville leading the way, stanza Musselman took over and by halftime held a 43-32 margin. By the end of the third period, the Applemen had widen- ed the gap to 68-46 and they coast ed the rest of the way. Musselman also won the pre- liminary game between the Jay- vee teams of the two schools, by a 43-28 score. Mark Osbourn pac- ed the losers with 16 points. row and their 20th of the season against only one defeat, that one at the hands of Hedgesville High School several weeks ago. I The Tigers, who won only one game in 18 this season, stayed with the Wildcats at the outset when they were using a pressing defense on them. But then Will- iamsport's Coach Glenn Smith switched his team's tactics and they broke an 8-8 tie with 11 consecutive points. From then on it was Williamsport in a breeze. The Wildcats had a 19-9 first period lead and by halftime they had nearly tripled the score on the Tigers, leading by a 4717 mar- gin.

Petersburg, with a record of only five victories in 20 games this season, has scored 1013 points while giving up 1159 points. Since the two teams last met, however, Charles Town has lost two members of it's starting team Kenny Cart, the team's top re- bounder and one of it's top score rs and Ron Puller. Carr and Pull- er quit the team last Friday when they disagreed with certain poli- cies and decisions of Coach Will- iam (Bill) Jordan. Since then Coach Jordan has been using Henry Yates and Skip Whitmore to fill the vacancies and both have turned in fine per- formances in the two games the Panthers have played since then. In the second game Friday night the Berkeley Springs High Indians are favorites to take the measure of the Franklin High Panthers, who have scored only five victories this season in 19 games. Franklin has scored 1010 points, while giving up 1151 points. Berkeley Springs at the same time shows a record of 10 victor- ies and 10 defeats and 1470 points scored as against 1412 scored against them. The Charles Town High cagers got off to a bad start Monday night in their annual battle with an Alumni team made up of Old Grads, but they rallied in the sec- ond period and went on to win a close 78-72 decision, their 17th of the season as against four de- feats. The Jordan-coached Panthers experienced a little shooting trou- ble in the first period and as a 211 points, respectively, most of their scoring coming in the sec- ond half, the Old Grad just could not overtaRe the Panthers. Meredith Polen, who was one of the top scorers on last year's great Panther team, led the Al- umni in scoring with 22 points, while Johnny Lowery, a mem- ber of the Panther team two years ago, had 18 points. Six members of the Charles Town team figured in the seer. ing, with Walters hitting in the double figures along with Jones and Johnson, with 122 points.

But they came on strong in the sec- ond period and not only showed better in their shooting, but their defense was so mobile and so tight they held the Alumni to just 10 points, while they were scoring 27 points.
