The The Jefferson High Girls' Varsity cage team, who are supposed to be in the re-building )cried this season due to the loss of some valuable players from last season's squad, did not show any signs of being inexperienced Monday night when they traveled to Purcellville, Va., and chalked up a close and hard- fought 4945 victory over the Loudoun Valley Viking girls. This was the 1978 debut for the Cougar girls, but it was the fifth game for the Vikings, who now show a 2-3record. Coach Mike Cook said prior to the game that he expected his girls would be being a tough opponent in Loudoun Valley, especially on the road and it was just that,with the Cougar girls managing to hold on in the home stretch for the victory. The Cougars took 12-7 first period lead and managed to stay in front until about mid-day of the final period when Loudoun Valley came on strong to tie the score at 41-41 and even later at 45-45 with only a little more than a minute of play remaining, But Jefferson High, on two quick baskets, went on'to win the battle. Last season when the Cougars opened on the "road against LSudoun Valley they ran into a lot of trouble and were defeated. Later in the season Coach Mike Cook's Cougars managed to gain some revenge for that defeat later in the season at Jefferson High. Coach Cook said he was most pleased with the showing of his girls, especially throughout the. first half when they took an early lead and stayed in front. They were leading by a 12-7 score at the end of the first period and 23-19 at the halfway mark. And going into the home stretch they still managed to maintain a five-point 36-31 margin. But then they began to tire since only eight players suited up for the game and one of their stars, Kim Carper, had fouled out of the ball game. It was at this point that Loudoun Valley made a home stretch run against the Cougars and caught up with them at 41-41 and again at 45-45. But then Jefferson stopped the Viking charge and went on to hit for two baskets to win. Millicent Carr a sophomore from Charles Town Junior High school, led the Cougars both on the offense and defense with a total of 15 points and 11 rebounds. Kim Carper had 13 points and seven rebounds before she fouled out of the game and Connie Robinson rolled in 11 points. Robin Wheeler and Venus McDonald each scored action Friday, Sept. 22, when they travel to Paw Paw for a )air of games.

Coach Jim Kessel hopes it will be Friday fright against Loudoun County at Leesburg, Virginia. It's been a season of con- tradictions for Jefferson. In the first two games, they made offensive mistakes, but played well defensively. In last weekend's contest with John Marshall (won by John Marshall 33 to 6) the defense collapsed and the offense really never had a cbpnee to function, as Jefferson record dipped to 1 and 2. As Kessel pointed out, it was a combination of injuries for the Cougars and opportunistic thrusts b 7 a good John Marshall squad that spelled defeat for Jefferson. For a good part of the first half, Jefferson played the Northern Panhandle eleven on even terms, but a couple of quick aerials by the host team left Jefferson down by two touch- downs at half-time. Already without the services of Bernie Boswell and Barry Davidsou, injuries struck Jef- ferson last Friday where it hurt, . defensively sidelining Mitch Bradley and Hilary Lee; and offensively, the number one runner of the squad, David Diehl. All three are expected to he ready to play at Loudoun County Friday. This week's opposition will not be out of Jefferson's class. Loudoun County has managed two wins and one loss, the latter at the hands of a tough Handley High School team. The Virginians are expected to run up the middle with power, electing to option to the outside when the situation dictates. Elsewhere,. in scholastic football. Martinsburg will play its first home game of the season, against a time-honored, really tough opponent, Fort Hill of Cumberland, Md. So far, Martinsburg has, despite a lack of depth, managed to avoid sermus injury, and has put together a record of two victories and but one defeat Friday night's game at Cobourne Field in Martinsburg is a Cumberland Valley Athletic panhandle team, Berkeley Springs, will be at home Friday evening, tackling aqother consolidated school from West Preston county. Berkeley has romped to consecutive victories over Musselman and Hedgesville.

In a rare Saturday afternoon encounter, Hedgesville will be at Williamsport to engage Williamsport High's Billporters in a Bi-State Conference contest. Hedgesville's record is a disappointing one so far, with two losses and a tie for Coach John McCullough's charges.
