Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, December 11, 1976 D3 From Dl Atlantic n '': 4: Astronaut Atlantic "They're the best we played all year," Butler said, "but I think we were more hungry than they were." Coffey, who led both teams with 91 yards in 12 carries, scored Atlantic's first TD on an eight-yard sweep with 1:42 remaining in the second quarter. Nelson McMurrain's conversion tied the score at 7-7. "That drive was the turning point," Wilder said. "I don't know how far we went against the wind (89 yards in 13 plays), but that was one hell of an offensive effort." Atlantic piled up 17 first downs to Astronaut's 10 and 236 yards rushing to the War Eagles' 40, but was Weather Hampering Sailfish Tournament STUART - The second day of the Stuart Sailfish Club's Light Tackle Sailfish Tournament was postponed yesterday due to continuing high winds and seas. Thursday's first day of fishing had been cut short to noon instead of the 3 p.m. deadline set for the four-day event. Every attempt will be made to fish today, although there will be no decision until 7:30 a.m. Twenty sails were caught and released Thursday. plagued by penalties, particularly in the first half. In the first quarter alone, Wilders Eagles were hit with 15-yard penalties for roughing the kicker (in the end zone), clipping and holding. In the second period, they were charged with pass interference, clipping and encroachment. "We were fired up," Wilder said. "I'm sure we deserved every one of them." Astronaut, led by all-state quarterback Cris Collinsworth, drove 63 yards in nine plays to take a 7-0 lead with 6:16 remaining in the first half. Collinsworth, the Class AAA state champion in the 100-yard dash, picked up 10 yards on a keeper and completed passes of 10 yards to Ken Mullins and 19 yards to Doug Calhoun to highlight the drive." The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Collinsworth sneaked over from the two and Ty Carter added the seventh point. Astronaut, coach Jay Donnelly, who played quarterback at Pajm Beach High School in 1960, said the game meant a little extra to him since it was played in Palm Beach County. "They controlled the line of scrimmage all night, offensively and defensively," Donnelly said. "That's as simple a way as I know to tell the story of the ball game." Eagles' John Hiers (Front) Is Sacked Brothers Pace Lake LAKE WORTH - The Taylor brothers paced Lake Worth to its fourth win without defeat last night, guiding the Trojans to a 68-59 win over North Shore.

"We didn't get into any foul trouble tonight," said coach Lloyd McCleese, whose team dropped a 60-59 decision to Palm Beach Gardens in its last outing. Enjoying his best night of the season was Anthony Carter who scored 32 points for Suncoast. "And he could have had 50 if he'd made all his layups," McCleese said. Keith Patrick, with 20, and Steve Hart, with 22, led Forest Hill which Cobras Hold Off Staff Photo by Mikt Olemer The game" could have gone either way if North Shore's Darryl Mitchell hadn't gotten into foul trouble in the second half. Mitchell scored 16 points for the Mustangs, whose record fell to 3-1 for the season. Also in double figures for North Shore were Dante Wright with 10, Tim Allen with 10 and Frank Stall-worth with 12. at bay with a controlled zone defense. The strategy apparently solved Suncoast's foul problems, which was a factor in its recent loss to Palm Beach Gardens. Although he scored no points, sophomore Jack Bethel, 6-foot-5, played a key role in the victory. ' FOREST HILL (67) - Harris 4-0-8; Tate 0-0-0, G.

"We concentrated on Robinson and someone else killed us," Leonard coach Ernie Bell said. "We've had to play three of the most physical teams in the area for our first three conference games." The Lancers previously played Martin County and Lake Worth. The Worth The Taylors led the Trojans in points and rebounding, controlling both boards. The 6-foot-4 Ron Taylor was high scorer with 20 points, while his 6-5 brother, a junior, had 13. Winfred Patrick, 6-4 senior, contributed 17 points and also played a strong defensive game. While Lake Worth was scoring from inside and outside, North Shore got most of its field goals from outside the key. The Mustangs' only shooting lapse came in that fateful second quarter in which the Trojans were red hot.

Cornelius led both teams with 25 points, only one of which came on a free throw, and either scored or assisted on his team's first 12 points. But Cardinal Newman used its control game to good advantage, dominated the offensive boards in the first half and broke the Eagles' press in the fourth period to record its first victory after two defeats. Atlantic also has a 1-2 record. The Crusaders had a big day at the foul line, converting 24 of 33 free throws, with their high scorer, Tom Petroff, hitting 10 of 13. He finished the game with 16 points. Also in double figures for the winners were Jud Kassuba with 11 points and Craig Young with 10. Ed Potts, with 10, was Atlantic's only other double-figurer scorer. Cardinal Newman took a 21-14 lead in the opening period and, aided by a spurt near the end of the second quarter and early in the third, held a 36-22 advantage at halftime and a 52-31 margin going into the final eight minutes.

C.C of C. U8072 FORT PIERCE - Scott DiMar-tino's free throw with no time remaining on the clock gave John Carroll a 45-44 victory over Moore Haven here last night. DeMartino was fouled as the buzzer sounded. His subsequent game-winning free throw was the only point he scored. Moore Haven outscored the Rams from the floor but was beaten, 17-8, at the free throw line. Dwayne Baker of Moore Haven and Mark Tepsworth of John Carroll were the game's high scorers, each with 22 points. John Devine added 11 clubs in the closing stages of the hotly-contested game when Ron Taylor put the game away with four consecutive free throws. North Shore played Lake Worth on even terms in all but the second quarter which spelled the difference. The Trojans outscored the visitors, 22-11, that period and refused to allow the Mustangs to close the gap the final two periods. was unable to cope with Suncoast's fast break which began working like a well-oiled machine midway in the opening quarter. Five Suncoast players were in double figures. In addition to Carter, they were Earlie Brown (16), Benny Gold wire (21), Carl Pierce (10) and Chuck Pauldo(ll). Pauldo, a sophomore, filled in for 6-6 Steve Holmes, who missed the game because of illness. Brown led the Suncoast rebounders with 15.

Fort Pierce Central lifted its record to 2-0 overall and in conference action. Leonard, which jumped to a 20-18 lead after the initial period, was hit by foul troubles near the game's end. Starters Gene Littles, the Lancers' second-leading scorer with 19 points, Cal Johnson and Jerome Brown all fouled out. "We held Fort Pierce to just three for the Tigers than the score indicates. "We played them tough in the first half," Bobcat coach Doug Reid said. "It was interesting for a half, but they won the game in the first couple of minutes of the second half, jumping out to a 12-point lead. "That forced us to play catchup, which we didn't want to do." Boca Raton scored only four points in the final quarter which increased the Tigers' margin of victo- ry- Boca Raton, 1-2, led Martin County, 3-0, after the first quarter and was down by only three at the half. But the Tigers came out in a press to start the second half forcing the Bobcats into turnovers and forced shots. It was a 10-point game most of the way from there until both teams cleared the bench in the last quarter. MARTIN COUNTY (73) - Campbell 8 521.
