The Bears shredded the Ottawa Cyclones, 56-45, in a one-sided show of firepower in last night's East Kansas League bout. Rosedale's 52-51 victory over second-place Argentine last night left Ottawa still in first place with a 7-1 league record. These developments put the spotlight on the Feb. 22 game here in which the Cyclones will meet Argentine which now has a 6-2 record. Ottawa, of course, has to play Rosdale N March 1. Don Pankey turned in the key ole as spoiler for the Turnerites s he combined with Jim Tinsey and Don Webb to wreck the Red machine. Pankey scored 18 joints, 14 in the first half, to lead he assault, while Tinsley hit 16 ind Webb 10. Joe Mendez con- LA, LA, LA, LA, LAH!—In finest ballet form, Williamsburg's Eddie Ransom (No. 25) tries for rebound in Franklin County League game with Princeton last night. Williamsburg won, 63-33, to gain at least a tie for title. Other players are Williams- burg's Larry Milikcn (15), Phil Piersol (21) and Fred Buckley (20) and Princeton's Eldon McCurdy (54), Francis Wiederholt (34) and David Rukes, barely visible oevr McCurdy's head. (Herald Photo). Williamsburg Cinches Tie For Franklin League Title By A. I. VAN CLEAVE WILLIAMSBURG - The Williamsburg Panthers assured themselves of at least a share of the Franklin County League title by clicking off a 63-33 victory over Princeton's Orioles here last night. The win gave Coach Louis Coppoc's Panthers a 7-win, 1-loss final league record and 12-3 for the season. They'll close out their regular schedule in a non-league game at Quenemo Friday night, Feb. 22. Three Panthers hit in the double figures as Williamsburg added to a 31-21 halftime lead with 32 points in the final two quarters. Fred Buckley topped the scoring with 18 points for Williamsburg. His teammates Larry Milliken and Ed Ransom chipped in 10 each. John Sutton led Princeton with 13. Coach Jim Pollom's Orioles were cold from the start, even when they could work a shot through the Panthers defense network. Williamsburg scored 12 points before Princeton tallied. The Orioles pulled within seven points in the second quarter, but a couple of quick field goals by Milliken ended the threat. Coach Coppoc's 6-2 "B" team star, Gary Stansbury, poured in 26 points as the Panthers won the "B" opener, 43-32. The County League outcome won't be determined until Thursday night, Feb. 21, when Pomona, with a 6-1 league record, goes to Lane. Coppoc's squad of mostly juniors placed second in the County League Tournament behind Pomona. But the Panthers beat the Pomona Indians in their last outing at Williamsburg. Two of the Panthers' three losses were to Pomona, one in a regular game at Pomona and one in the tourney. Williamsburg's other loss was to Waver Cold Third Quarter Hurts Lane I.ANE — A cold third quarter cost the Lane Lions here last night, as they dropped a non- league game to Greeley, 56-53. Coach Clayton True's Lions were ahead, 30-25, at halftime, but the situation was reversed in the fatal third when Greeley outscored Lane, 18-9 Mike Kuder and Jim Wylie, both small-type juniors, gave the Lions a scoring punch, Mike getting 22 and Jim 20. Bui Greeley countered with a balanced attack with four boys hitting in the double figures: Egidy 17, Williams 14, Katzer 12 and M. Lickteig 11. The Lions lost at the free throw line, hitting only 5 for 15. Coach True's "B" team won, 44-25. Pomona Beats Lyndon, 58-41 LYNDON - The Pomona Indians jarred Lyndon, 58-41, in a non-league game here last night to boost their season record to 13 wins against 3 losses. The Indians held an 8-point lead at halftime and at the end of the third and polished it off with a 17-8 scoring edge in the closing period. Bernie Nelson with 13 points and Roger Shoemaker with 11 led the Indians. Pomona held Lyndon's scoring ace, Roger Trendel, to 15 points. Coach Carlin Nalley's Indians have a couple of salty opponents on the tail end of their regular schedule before going to Lebo Lane, holding third place in the Fcb - 2(i for a Class B district Franklin County League, will close out its regular season Thursday night, Feb. 21, with Pomona at Lane, then will go to the Class BB district tournament at Richmond Feb. 26.

Ottawa offered resistance in the form of two 13-point efforts, one by Roy Dunn and the other by Ronnie Mendell. The league's leading scorer, Harry Morton, was held to 10. Jim Lewis and Rick Winchester slipped in 4 points each. First quarter action belied the facts to come as both teams looked like they were going to lock horns in an old-fashioned scoring duel, but the Red wagon broke down. Turner led 13-11 at the end of the first stanza. Morton and Dunn pulled the Cyclones within 1 point at 15-14 only to have Don Pankey turn loose along with Don Webb to boost the count to a 31-24 halftime lead. The Reds' second scorer, Dunn, hit a pair of frees in the first half while Harry Morton and Ron Mendell hit for 8 points each. Roy Dunn slipped in a bucket to start the thrid and followed with a free throw for a 32-25 count, but that was as far as it went. Ottawa failed to score •gain until, there were just 20 seconds left in the frame, but the Bears already had shuffled the score to read 46-25. Coach H. K. Stevens found some solace with senior Rick Winchester who replaced one of the guards and immediately found the range to break the Cyclone scoring drouth and leave Ottawa trailing 4ft- 27 at the end of the third. A resurgent Ottawa quintet picked up the brand of ball in the last period for 18 points but Turner held on to a demanding lead that bordered on 21 points in the third canto. Dunn sparked the scoring with an 8-point ef< fort while Mendell stole two balls and drilled 5. Ottawa picked up the score to a more respectable 11-point deficit and that was the way it stood at the end of the game, 56-45 The red-hot Turner quintet hit a tough 59.5 per cent of its shots while the Cyclones hit 37.5 per cent of their attempts. Bear starters hit 6 of 11 free throws to the Reds 8 to 20 charities. The Cyclones now stand at 134 overall and hold a 7-1 league mark. Turner is 6-8 for the season and 3-5 in league play. In Junior vanity action, the Turnermen belted the Twisters 46-45 in an overtime victory. Terry Davis led the Twisters with 13, and Doug Schultz hit 11. Earle Doman offered 6 points with Steve Queen, Jerry Turley and Loren Shofner connecting for 4 points each. Gary Mavity hit 3.
