i) With sy Playing one of their best games of the season the Page Jackson High Spartans of Charles Town rebounded and shot like profess- ionals l~riday night when 0hey roll ed to an easy 61-32 victory over ~he Shepherdstor, vn .High Cardin- als and right into the Section 16- A cage championship on ,the .Shep herd College floor. Wikh this decisive c}assic per- romance the Iast and cagy Spar tans carved Vhemselves a spot in: the Class "A" Region Four play-ii offs to be staged on ,the Potomac ~tate gymnasium in Keyser Fri- day and Saturday. "fine Spartans, who in .their two previous nights b~tles had been slow staxters and fast finishers, al tered the pattern somewhaJt again st the CardinaLs w~en with a capa city crowed on hand they moved out in front early and by half- time had more Vhan doubled the score. The Spartans, led by bhe lanky duo of Lawrence Bailey and Ven- ning Johnson hit from the field at a terrific pace, while at ~'~e same time Shepherdstown went into it's worst shooting lapse in some games. Shepherdstown got only one ,fielder and three foul shots in .fine first period as the tall John- son and Bailey no only kept .~he Cardinals far out in .their shooting but also batted doXvn a nur~ber of the C~rdinal 9hooting aA~em,pts. At the same time Page Jackson was thitting for five field goal's in bhe .first period, plus ,three foul shots. In addi:tion to pouring in 36 points the lanky cagers spear- headed Page Jackson's ,tremen- dous 52-18 edge in rebounds. Bail ey, who was to later be named the "most valuable" pkayers haul ed in 15 and Johnson was credited with 18. Bailey was credited Wi,t~ 43 re- bounds and 58 points in ~he three night affair to easily emerge as the t~urney's outstanding perform or. Shepherds,town ran up a 3-1 lead on Jim Hillard's layup and Jerry DorE's foul toss bu~t Bailey's jumper knotted t~e score at 3 all. Kenny Waldeck hit on a long set to give the Cardinals their last grip on the lead at 5-4 as Bailey's long one-,bander started Page Jackson off on a 13 point Streak that was finally halted by Charlie Hunter's one-bander at 6:30 of the second period. WiVh Derr, Che section's leading scorer, being bot~tled up by the Spap0ans' tight defense, the Car- dinals ,went five and a half-min- utes without scoring w~He Page Jackson was racking up five field ers and t, hree free throws to break ,the game wide open. Johnson toss ed in ~ pair of dou'ble-deckers, Clarenoe Branson, Norvel Willis and Ba~ley also hit from the floor !in ~he @freak. AnoVher ll-point streak, ,paced by Bailey's two quick baskets, sent :Page Jackson into an insurmoun table 34-8 lead near the end of the first half. Page Jackson posted a fantas- tic 32-8 edge in rebounds :through the .first half .and sank a sizzling 12-for-29 from the floor. Oharles Branson and Bailey each bucketed six points to offse~ DeEr's seven point spree in the ,third .period as Coach Adam Crav en's charges maintained a 17- ,to 26 point edge. could produce only one basket-by Waldeck, in ten atten~pts in the final period While Willis, Bailey, Branson and Paul Si,m~ were each ,tacking on a fielder to allow tJhe Spartans to breathe easy down the home steer ch.

The Spartans, one of ~he pro- tourney favorite teams utilized the same weapons-height and rebound ing power they used in their open ing nigh~t game .to score a 59-38 victory over a spunky bunch of Tigers from Har.pers Ferry High School who ran out of gas in the second half; while Shepherdstown finally shook off a worrisom bun- ch of Rumor High cagers in the final quarter to win the second game of ,the Thursday night dou- bleheader by a 60-38 score.

Harpers Ferry's courtment, al- though handicapped by the luck of height to match the high-jump ing Spartans .put up a stiff battle for two and .a half periods ,before mel,ting under a hot 14-,for-33 shooting performance by the Page Jackson sharpshooters in .the sec- ond half. The Spartans hit at a 41 per cent clip with 25 for 60 from the floor while Harpers Ferry netted 13 of 56 for a 33 per cent accur- acy.
