Title To Osage City Pomona On Short End In Overtime By GENE RAMSEY LEBO — The Pomona Indians lost a heartbreaking, 65-63 overtime game to favored Osage City last night in the finals of the Class B district tournament here. Coach Carlin Nalley's charges tried desperately to make a tre mendous first quarter performance stand up for victory, but the one-man attack of Big Mike Jones finally overcame the Pomona advantage. Jones, the big Osage post man, dropped in 36 points and was a demon on the boards all night in spite of an outstanding evening's work for the talented In dian team. Mike contributed four of the Osage six overtime points Pomona, off to another great first quarter start as in its other two tourney outings, jumped to a 23-14 lead at the end of the first stanza. Jim Goracke hit seven of eight shots from the corner and all of his 14 points as the Pomona rooters went wild. Gor acke ran into foul trouble late in the second quarter and was pulled out with four. Then the i)sage team began to move and played the Indians on even terms the rest of the first half, with Pomona holding its 9-point margin at halftime. Bernie Nelson hit eight second-quarter points to pace the Pomona attack. Jones had hit 18 by intermission. At one time the Indians held a 31-19 lead. With Goracke still on the bench for the third uarter, Osage cut the score to 4945 as the quarter ended. Three Pomona men had picked up foui fouls by now, trying to battle the taller foe under the boards. Osage City tied the score at 6:35 when Goracke fouled out and Leroy Spicer dropped in two free throws. The last six minutes were played at a terrific pace, and the score was tied five times before the final knot of 5959 at the end of regulation time Roger Shoemaker sent the game into overtime with a goal with 40 seconds showing on the Twisters Lose But Had Good Season Ottawa's junior varsity closed <mt its season with a third straight loss, 47-36, in a lopsided contest at Rosedale last night. The Twisters ended the season with a 10-6 record, one of the best in recent years. Doug Schultz was the top scorer for Ottawa with 15 counters, while Loren Shofner, Jerry Turley, Steve Queen and Terry Davis each contibuted four. Earle Doman hit three and Daryl Jameson two. The Twisters looked good as they scored the first seven points but barely held on to an 11-8 first quarter lead. In the second frame, the lead crumbled, as the Rosedalians picked up the count at 15-11 and proceeded to convert it into a more reasonable reading for the hometown folks. Before Terry Davis and Doug Schultz could drive home baskets, the hometowners owned a 22-19 score. Third quarter scoring took a turn for the worse as Ottawa only managed five points to the Cats 11 for a 33-24 deficit. Davis hit a basket during the stanza, and Turley turned in three points for the Twisters. About the only action the Twis- ters saw in the final canto was the high-flying drive in layup o Queen, but he fouled a Rosedale player to get his two points. Queen proceeded to foul out toward th latter part of the bout. The Twis ters were too far down to retail ate as the Cats set the pace with some deadeye shooting. Rosedale hit 14 of 35 attempt while the Twisters connected on 12 of 43 shots. The Cats out-hi the Reds, 19-12, in the free throv area. Orville Morrow, a chunkj center for the Cats, dominatec the backboards with a 13-carom effort as the hometowners con trolled the Ottawa boards witl 23 attachments.

Osage called time and staled for one shot and it was missed. Osage controlled the tip at the tart of the overtime, and Jones lit a short jumper. Richard Alic countered with a long one- lander.

Score by quarters: Osage City . . .14 14 17 14—C5 Pomona 23 14 12 10-63 THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, March 2, 1963 By CONRAD DOWNING A tremendous second half comback by Phil LaHue and company, highlighted by a 22-point bird quarter, put a few dents in he crown of the Eastern Kansas ,eague champions, the Ottawa Cyclones as the Rosedale Wildcats slugged their way to a 52 51 squeaker on their home court ast night. LaHue, a bespectacled senior, good for 19 points, was the cul- )rit, and, with little ceremony, dcked the Reds' crown asunder with a superb 8-for-10 field goal exhibition in the last half to shoot the pants off the league champions. The surging Wildcats finished their season in a flurry as they won their last 1 five games for a 9-8 season's record and a 6-4 EKL mark. Five games back, LaHue led the assault on the Turner Bears and chucked in a last second fielder to defeat them, 52-50. That started the winning streak as the Cats rebounded to crush Leavenworth, 41-34, and then match Argentine shot for shot. Again it was LaHue who did the deed as he dropped a 2-second field goal to whip the Mustangs. 52-51. The following week Bonner Springs fell, 46-43, and, last night, the crowning achievement, a 52-51 defeat of the league champions. It wasn't all LaHue, but in the econd half Ottawa knew very ew names but his. Harry Moron turned in the best scoring ffort of the evening with 23 coun- ers, but he spent most of the vening at the free throw line s he hit 11 of 12 charities. Roy )unn pumped in 13 counters, and onnie Mendell 10. Jim Lewis hit and Eddie Davidson 1. The first half wasn't spectacu- ar as the Cyclones made the ame look like a cinch as they taped to a 15-5 first quarter lead. Only big Jim Ramsey's soft ook shot saved face for the Cats he hit three of the beauties in the first half to keep the home earn close. LaHue managed a lonely free Jirow in the first half, but who vould have suspected the erup- on that was going to take place ater on in the game. By the alf, Ottawa held a comfortable 8-15 advantage, built on a burst rf scoring by 6-6 Morton. With he count standing at 21-13, Moron hit a pair of frees, followed >y Jim Lewis' only bucket for a 5-13 tally. Morton again took his urn at the charity stripe and >rought the count to the half- ime total, 28-15. Coach Eldon Milburn's Wild- :ats lived up their namesake in the second half as they went wild with a fancy exhibition of shoot- ng. Ottawa picked up a bucket and moved to a 30-15, count, but Ramsey hooked in a 2-pointer and then followed Roy Dunn's long set shot with another short jumper to trail 32-19. LaHue, long cracked up as the best shot on the Cat team, provided the punch, along with sophomore Danny Davies. They split 12 points between them to lead the Cats to a 40-37 deficit at the period's end. A long jumper by LaHue and a free throw by Bill Carter tied the score for the first time at 40-40 in the fourth period. Ottawa proceeded to act the part of the champion, pulling away on four free throws by Morton and Ronnie Mendell for a 44-40 lead. Alan Morris and LaHue combined to send a withering volley basket-bound and post a 44-44 tie with 5:08 left to play. Roy Dunn put the Reds back in the lead but never-fail LaHue used his 25-footer to knot the count at 46 all. Davidson hit a free throw, and Dunn added two more, but LaHue kept the ball rolling to pull ahead, 50-49, with a little over a minute left to play. Things perked up momentarily as Harry Morton sneaked in to pick off a pass and lay it up for a 51-50 Ottawa lead with 1:01 left on the clock. Things looked good for the Cyclones. But LaHue, a slightly - built senior, dribbled down and potted his final goal of the evening and gave the Cats a 52-51 lead with half a minute left to play. Ottawa's Jim Lewis took a shot and a tie ball resulted. Big Morton took the tip to Roy Dunn and the redhead fired a long jumper that hit the edge of the rim and bounded away as the clock showed two seconds left. The Rosedale quintet held sway under the baskets, collecting 24 rebounds to the Reds' 26. From the field, Rosedale hit. 23 of 51 attempts for a 45 per cent aver- age, while the Cyclones hit 31 per cent with 15 of 47 shots. Jim Ramsey, the Cat's post man, left the game in the early stages of the fourth quarter via the foul route, but the Wildcats held up well without their big rebounder. Ottawa's Harry Morton was tops in the rebounding department with eight while Jim Lewis took in, seven. Ottawa finished the regular sea son play with a 14-5 record and an 8-2 EKL mark, fulfilling Coach H. K. Stevens^ argument, "whoever wins this league is going to lose a couple."

(AP)-Jim Gentile of the Baltimore Orioles did a little crystal ball gazing Friday a spring training camp and predicted Detroit's Rocky Colavit would win the American Leagu home run title in 1963. "I'll take Detroit as an al around long-ball park," Gentil said, "that's why I'm saying Colavito this year." The Birds big first baseman claims to be a good fortune-teller. "I picked Harmon Killebrew to win it last year. Killebrew won it. This year, I say Colavito.

Melvern Captures BB Title By DICK CRAWFORD RICHMOND-The Melvern Panthers defeated the Westphalia Wolverines, 64-43, last night and walked off with the Class BB District Tournament trophy at Richmond. The Greeley Wildcats beat the Lane Lions, 44-43, in possibly the tightest game either team played this season, with action holding fans on the edges of their seats into the final seconds. In the Melvern - Westphalia game, the Panthers started off colder than usual with the first quarter ending 11-8 in Westphalia's favor. Melvern got hotter in the second quarter, scoring 18 points and taking 10-point lead over the Wildcats.

The last quarter was Melvern's hottest period, a 22-pointer. West jphalia scored 15 points in the last quarter, handing Melvern another trophy in a game that might be termed routine for the Panthers who captured this year's Osage County League and tournament championships and last year's Class B State title. Dale Mochamer was Melvern Coach Gene Otis' high scorer with 17 points. Richard True was high for Westphalia with 18. The Panthers will play in a regional tournament at Greeley next week. The Greeley Wildcats felled the Lions with Greeley's Dick Katzer and Mark Mader and Lane's Mike Kuder keeping the air tense in the last half and in the final seconds of play. Time out was called at the end with less than two seconds left and the score, 4443. When action started again Greeley stalled long enough Kuder got the ball and aimed at the basket but didn't get the shot away before the buzzer sounded. Lane took an early lead over the Wildcats, with the first quar- er ending, 10-9, favor of the aons. Greeley shot ahead in the sec- >nd quarter with 10 points to Dane's seven. Lane took another one-point lead in the third quarter, 35-34, but the Wildcats managed to score 10 points to Lane's eight in the final.
