In the first meeting between the Panthers and Cardinals, the Charles Town boys rolled to a 10-0 victory as Billy Bentz and Larry Burns teamed up to shutout the Shepherds,own nine. The Panthers also hold victories over Harpers Ferry, Clarke County and Hedgesville. And while they still have Martinsburg to meet twice, a lost in either of these games, or both will not effect the Pa~nthers chances for the championship title of this section since Martinsburg has been moved into the Morgan- Berkeley County sectional.
