ROYAL CENTER WINS CASS NET CROWN AGAIN Bulldogs Tame Lions In Title Battle 67-39 CASS COUNTY TOURNEY Lucerne 45, Young America 43 Royal Center 60, Galveston 52 Royal Center' 67, Lucerne 39 (Final) Coach Russ Brown's Royal Center Bulldogs thumped the Lucerne Lions 67 to 30 to gain the Cass, county tournament basketball crown again Saturday night at Berry Bowl before a crowd of over 3,000 fans. The Bulldogs didn't have too much trouble as they jockeyed for a lead early, got it on Jerry Berkshire's follow-in goal at 4-3 and led the rest of the way. The Royals \vere in front 15-8. 31-20 and 48-32 at the quarter poles, steadily pulling away at the finish for an easy triumph. Coach Brown used reserves freely throughout the contest and •wound up with the oddity of having every one of his performers to score at least one point. Jerry 35-all when the third period closed. It was touch and go throughout the final period although Lucerne held the upper hand most of the time and had a 43-39' edge with 2:54 to play. The Yanks rallied to tie it at 43-all but free throws by Ricky Burrough and Dale Bridge gave the Lions the edge they needed. . Ron Ennis was the pacemaker for the Yanks with 15 points while Larry Segraves and Bill McCoy each contributed 8 points. Dale Bridge was the top gunner, for the Lions, getting 14 points in a brilliant relief role. Burrough helped him with 10 and Jim Robinson with 9 tallies. The Lions caged IS of 58 field attempts and 15 of 29 free chances while the Yanks hit 15 of 57 afield and 13 of 19 from the free throw line. Galveston, keyed to a high pitch, whizzed ahead of the Royal Center Berkshire was tops with 15 but : Bulldogs in the first quarter and Bill Newcomb hit 11 and Gene had a 15-11 lead when the first Barr had 10, indicating the power eight minutes elapsed. Then the of the Royal Center front line. Carl Newell, husky guard for the Lions, led his team with a 17 Cards slowed down and the Bulldogs went ahead an r. free toss by Jerry Berkshire at 16-15 early in point spree but he lacked sufficient! the second period and the Royals help. Royal Center's extreme height enabled them to control both boards rather handily during the game and they wound up by hitting 24 of 69 chances from the field and adding 19 of 27 free ones. The Lions netted only 12 of 58 • shots from the court and hit 15 of 27 free throws. Each team was assessed 18 personal fouls. Tinton Juniors Win Coach Harlan Bonsett's Tipton Tp. Tigers junior high team won the county championship' in the preliminary over Metea's Hornets 51 to • 28, uncorking their best offensive attack of the year. Metea shot into an 11-8 first quarter lead but Tipton shot ahead 21-15 at the half, made it 30-22 at the third period and then hit freely in the final period, caging 6 of their first 7 tries in that stanza. The lopsided win was unexpected - inasmuch as Tipton had edged Metea only by two points early in the season. When the Tigers got relaxed they shot in goals from all over the place. Uncanny free throwing had kept them in the game early and the late surge carried them to their highest mark of the year. Incidentally it was the 40th victory in a row for the Tipton Tp. lads who have played together, since they were in the fifth grade. They lost twice before they started on the long string and since haven't been halted. Tony Hinkle dropped Jn 17 points and Danny Rush got 13 to set the pace for the Tigers. • Bill Wagoner hit 10 and Jimmy Kline got 8 to lead Metea. Following' the final game presentation of awards were n.sde to were in front for good. It was 2319, Royal Center at halftime and 46-36 going into the final period. Bill Newcomb set the pace for the well balanced • Bulldogs whose top four veterans were all in double figures. Newcomb tallied 18, Jerry Berkshire had 17, Gene Barr and Jim Holcomb had 12 each. Galveston couldn't match that pattern but they tried as Dick Baber pop-; ped in 20 points, Ron Freeman hit 10 in a relief job and. Dave Rodabaugh dropped in 8. The Royals missed a lot of shots early in the game but warmed up later and hit 24 of 76 from the field, adding 12 of 21 free throws. Galveston caged 22 of 70 afield and 8 of 18 free tries.
