Albrecht hook jump the and Benner's and at on for five Board Strength Downs Mission There'll be a. new state cham-1 pion this year! Whitefish, c o n t r o l l i n g the boards and blistering the baskets, reached the finals of the Northwest Northwest Class B Division Tournament Tournament Friday night with a surprisingly surprisingly easy 65-46 triumph over Mission of St. Ignatius at Poison High School. Mission was the defending state class B champion, but there'll be a new name etched on the championship championship trophy this season when the finals are played at Great Falls. Whitefish took a big step in that direction Friday night with Mike McNeiUy leading a well rounded attack. The lanky lad owned the boards and scored 20 points for the night as the Bulldogs Bulldogs -- both teams are nicknamed Bulldogs -- went into the championship championship game Saturday night against Ronan, which coasted over Columbia Falls, 74-43, in the following following game the same night. Whitefish scored the first point and was never headed. Mission remained during the first quarter, quarter, but thereafter the Bulldogs, Whitefish Bulldogs, dominated the, rebounds and scored with ease from close in. Whitefish's zone defense snuffed snuffed Mission's intentions of driving driving through. While Whitefish beM Mission in check, McNeiUy carried carried Whitefish through the first three minutes as the Bulldogs accustomed themselves to the Mission defense. Louie Incashola, the same Incashola Incashola who scored 35 points the day before against Libby, got one basket anl two points in the first half. He totaled only 10 points'all told against the close guarding Bulldogs. Finding he could not go through the Whitefish defense he tried going over without success. His long one handers were missing, Whitefish, in the meantime, ke P l hitting in the first quarter to stay ahead. Just before the initial quarter ended Gary Morkert Morkert slipped in two free throws for Mission to put the ex-champs two points behind, 17-15. The second quarter was a nightmare nightmare for Mission. The Bulldogs, Mission's Bulldogs, scored just two points. That was the turning point of the game. Lauren Buckland started the Whitefish second quarter with a jump shot. Incashola got his second second field goal o£ the game and the score was 19-17 in Whitefish's favor. : Then, Whitefish scored 10 straight points without interruption. interruption. Jim Baker got two free throws, Dan Paolini hit a jump, j four straight foul tosses by Dick Stoll and Buckland were swished and Stoll ended the onslaught with a jump to make the score or * 31-21 deficit, the Whitefish Bulldogs recorded nine straight points, five of them on free throws. The charity shots were sandwiched by buckets by Me- Neilly and Paolini. From that 40-21 deficit Mission could not recover. Fred Blackman, constantly hustling, and Mission's high man, tried his best to rally his forces but he was one against five and the odds were too much for Mission. Blackman got four of his six baskets for the game in the last quarter, but by then the Whitefish Whitefish bandwagon was rolling and everybody on the Bulldog squad was jumping aboard. Buckland, with some fine jump shots, helped keep the bandwagon rolling with 14 points. 29-17 at the half. j Things improved for Whitefish iin the third quarter while Mis- Ision's vision's of another cham- 2,pionship faded away with each Whitefish point. Whitefish got another streak going in the third period.
