The game will be held at Cerritos College hi Norwalk, at 3:30 p.m. Coach jay Merrill's Panthers have already advancec farther than any other loca; baseball team with their 5-3 victory over Bishop Tuesday. Valley Christian advanced into the finals with a 10-3 win over Ontario. Merrill will probably go with ace Bob Quick today against the Crusaders. Quick has already helped to lead the Panthers past their last two playoff opponents, including a 2-0 shutout win over Paraclete. He will be up against Valley Christian's all-league standout Bob Belong, who helped pace the Crusaders to an 8-2 league record. Valley Christian finished the Olympic League season in a tie for the top spot with St. Genericve. Both schools had 8-2 records in circuit play, but since the Crusaders beat the Valiants twice they were allowed to enter the GIF playoffs under a league rule. The Crusaders have a fine battery in pitcher DeJong and all-league catcher Calvin Spoolstra. Newbury Park has done a remarkable job in advancing this far in the playoffs, although the Panthers had a close call against Bishop. The Panthers were sporting a 3-1 advantage before the Broncos came hack to tie the game in the seventh inning. But Newbury Park was able to push across a pair of markers in the top of the eighth to win, 5-3, and advance to the finals. The Panthers' only problem this year has been lack of experience, since the entire team is made up of underclassmen. Merrill has been getting some clutch hitting, as in the Bishop game, which has helped pull the team through. The win against Bishop went to Ron Weyand, who came in after relief pitcher Dave Diaz got into trouble in the seventh frame. Weyand has also been one 0: the clubs most consistent hitters, along with freshman phenom Dave Abdalla.
