E8-Palm Beach Pdst-Tlmeg, Sunday, December 12. 1976 TRIM'S ARENA Wright's Late Shot Gives Mustangs Win Fort Pierce Keeps Win Skein Going The Falcons, 0-4, were hurt by foul trouble as Young, Steve Hart and Sam Newton all fouled out. Both teams made 10 free throws but Wright's field goal gave the Mustangs a 25-24 edge in that NORTH SHORE (60) - Wright 6-2-14, Defaulter 0, Michell 7-5-19, Stallworth 5-2-12, Allen 3-1-7, Harper 0, Brooks 3-0-6, Maloney 0, Clay 1-0-2, Scott 0, Jacksen 0.

Haines Hits for 34, But Raiders Defeated Dante Wright's baseline jumpshot with two seconds remaining enabled North Shore to stave off Forest Hill's bid for upset and led the Mustangs to 60-58 nonconference victory. The score was tied, 58-all, when Wright, a 5-foot-9 guard drove the right side and hit the 10-footer. The game was tied numerous times and the lead changed hands over a dozen times. North Shore, 4-1, fell behind in the first quarter, 18-14 but came back and outscored the Falcons, 20-11, in the second period to lead at half-time, 34-29. Both teams traded baskets in the third period and the Mustangs clung to their five-point lead, 46-41 before the final stanza began. High-scoring junior Darryll Mitchell scored 19 points and Wright added 14 for the Mustangs. The Falcons were led by Keith Patrick's 19 points and Chris Young chipped in with 16. VERO BEACH - Fort Pierce jumped to a quick lead and waltzed to an easy 82-47 win over Vero Beach last night. The victory boosted Fort Pierce to a 3-0 record for the young season, while Vero Beach fell to 2-6. Four Fort Pierce players scored in double figures in the lop-sided game that was never in doubt from the opening minutes. Alvin Miller, who had 14 against Leonard Friday night, was high last night with 16. Cecil Bembry scored 14, Jackie Robinson added 12 and Willie Redden accounted for 10. The quartet of Bembry, Robinson, Miller and Redden was just too much for Vero Beach, both in scoring and rebounding. Not until the fourth period when Fort Pierce was substituting freely did Vero Beach outscore the visitors. The Cobras, who squeezed out an 80-75 win over Leonard in its last outing, was a well-oiled machine against Vero Beach which had three players in doubles figures, including 10 by consistent Jerry Jones. Boca Raton Sweeps To Win Over Eagles J 1 FORT MYERS - Jeff Haines scored 34 points last night, but that wasn't enough to prevent Glades Central from suffering an 87-80 loss to Fort Myers. Haines, a 6-foot-3 junior who plays guard and forward for the Raiders, hit 16 baskets and two free throws to take game scoring honors. Barney Mason added 17 points for the losers, now 0-2, and Rufus Chambers finished with 10. Fort Myers took advantage of the Raiders' inexperience in the fourth quarter. Five Glades Central players fouled out in the fourth period and the winners made 17 of their 33 free throws in that quarter. Fort Myers jumped out to a 14-point lead in the first quarter, but the Raiders got within one, 19-18, at the end of the period. They went ahead by three at halftime, 45-42, and stretched their lead to 11 points in the third quarter. The Raiders still led with 2:05 to go, but fouls and free throws doomed them to another loss. GLADES CENTRAL (80) - Chambers 5-0-10, Haines 16-2-34, Staples 1-0-2, Perkins 2-0-4, Sheppard 3-0-6, Weston 1-0-2, Mason 5-7-17, Strachon 1-0-2. Totals 35-10-80.

Glades Central 18 27 20 15-80 Fort Meyers 19 23 20 25-87 also dominated both backboards. Haynes was high scorer with 15 points, while Strainge and the 6-foot-5 Haddock had 14 each. Ed Potts kept Atlantic in the game until the third period when Boca Raton raced to a 19-point lead. Potts, who was high for the losers with 11 points, sat out most of the third period with four fouls. He returned in the fourth quarter and fouled out. DELRAY BEACH - A taller Boca Raton squad took command of the backboards against a cold-shooting Atlantic team yesterday and rolled to a 65-48 victory. It was Boca Raton's second triumph against as many losses, while the Eagles fell to 1-3 for the season. Besides its inability to hit consistently from the field, Atlantic was hampered by an ankle injury to Tim Cornelius in the second quarter. Cornelius, who scored 25 points against Pahokee Friday, went to the sidelines after the injury and returned in the third quarter despite being in obvious pain. The Boca Raton attack was carried by John Haynes, Lawrence Strainge and Elijah Haddock who Brown Withdraws From Tournament BOSTON (AP) - The Brown University basketball team will withdraw from the Real Madrid tournament in Spain over the Christmas holiday to avoid breaking an NCAA restriction, the university announced Friday.

It was the Gators second straight triumph after losing their first three games of the season. The Gators, who led 25-14 after the first period, increased their lead to 44-29 at the half. Pahokee was minus its first eight players because of the football playoffs. Kennv Boggs scored 19 points and Delaware Suspends NFL Lottery WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware Lottery Director Peter M. Simmons announced yesterurday night he is cancelling all wagers on the state's football betting lottery, Touchdown II. Simmons said in a prepared statement that bets on all Touchdown II tickets dated Dec. 12, 1976, are void. He said a wager refund program will be announced Monday. Simmons cited published reports quoting gamblers as saying the betting line on the Dec. 12 card was bad as the reason for suspending the wagers. "During the past three days, persons of questionable reputation have, together with the media, created an atmosphere of doubt with respect to this week's Touchdown II game," Simmons said. He added that comments concerning the published Scoreboard line could create undue influence on players' team selections and their bets. "We believe the line as published was fair for both the state and our players," Simmons said. "We believe at this time that the media and its sour:es may have created an imbalance in normal betting patterns which could have a devastating effect on our players or the state, depending on the ultimate outcome )f the games." The Delaware football lottery is set up in such a way that it could nave to pay off much more than it takes in. Published reports about the lottery having picked the wrong favorite in two games and missing the margin in three others had apparently sparked heavy betting. "The line is way out of whack," said one Wilmington shop owner who sells the tickets. "We had one professional gambler come in today and bet $4,100.". Simmons said he took the action under the Delaware lottery law which gives the director authority to act "when the gambling element may influence the state operation." "It appears to me that events of the past three days are symptomatic of that kind of situation," Simmons said. Tigers Win First Game CLEWISTON - Elijah Lee and Rick Reddish sparked the Clewiston Tigers to a 68-58 triumph over Jupiter to win their first game of the season. Lee scored 16 points and Reddish 12 as the Tigers snapped a five-game losing streak. The Warriors, 1-4, were led by Bobby Merrill with 12 points. ( JUPITER (58) - Merrill 5-2-12, Donzaben 9-0-18 B.
