12—Times-Mirror, Thursday, March 9, 1961 Clutch Game Faces Sheffs Against C-L Tonight is “clutch game” time for Sheffield’s hard- driving Wolverine basketballers: They’re enroute back to St. Marys for the District 9 Class C championship game, and in it they face the team Coach Ralph Santo bluntly insists is the best they’ll have seen to date: Clarion-Limestone. “We know they’re fast and really accurate; they have a pair of boys pretty similar to A1 Ludwick up at Northern Northern Area and they’re a running outfit; they’ll give us a lot of trouble, I’m sure of that”, was the way Santo summed it up. Clarion-Limestone, at least, owns a record comparable to Sheffield’s: While the Wolverines have lost just one game, C-L has dropped three, but their overall record also shows 22 wins. The sharp-shooters Santo mentioned are Don Rhoades, 5-11, and Gary Fink, 5-9; both are seniors. When it comes to hard and fast basketball, of course, Sheffield plays a pretty torrid brand of that, too, and has come through their preliminary and semi-final games with scores of 71-48 over Oswayo Valley and 88-50 over Sykesville, respectively. Here’s how tonight’s teams line up: SHEFFIELD HERE’S THE BROCKWAY HIGH team which upset Emporium Tuesday night to earn place in tomorrow’s District 9 Class B championship game against Slippery Rock at Punxsutawney.
