Latrobe, Greensburg, Scottdale, Mount Pleasant and Uniontown were others in the division. - -- · -·Bill Dolde's players won all of the independent games played that year and the season's record stood-at-14 wins and-three setbacks,-the latter coming in league play. "·L-ightburn, Lujack,- McCoy, Mc. Cormick and · Dunstan formed the starting Cokcr lineup with Leploy, Woods, Murray, Soisson, Gucrrlero, George and Sager as reservcs.'Harold Sager was later to become one of the-Coker stars.' The hot race found the final game between the Cpkcrs and Uniontown determining the sectional-championship but the Maroon and White came through with a 22-15 count here. Had the locals won,, it would have resulted in a three-way tic-with Latrobe and Uniontown; - -The county- scaters lost but one game that year, to Latrobe. . - · Coach Dolde turned'out his second championship club in 1933 in competing against Dunbar Township, Perry Township, Hurst, Mount Pleasant, Scottdale and East Huntingdon but; the Cokers fell before Norwin, Section 11. title-winner, in the. first ·round of thb eliminations. Leading 33-32 with less than 30 seconds ol play, the Oragne and Black called lor .a. time-out and this proved dlsaster- .ous as it was an excessive period and Norwin got- a free throw, from the free line that was "made,""creating'a tie. In the first extra period," neither Jive, scored and _in the second 'ios- sion Norwin took .the lead and won : -.35 to 33... . ;·.... --. . ;;-, . .- -·"-The Cokers-defeated home shortly after the- start of the second half of the schedule and went into a tie with the Blue and White for the lead. Hurst had previously whipped both Scottdale and the Cokers. Connellsvllle -and Scottdale wound up the schedule in a deadlock and in the playoff at Greensburg ' the Doldemcn carnc through with.a.24-19 verdict_to take the_Sec- ~_iion 10 gonfalon. "" · This combination, composed of Harold Sager, Reed, Bill Foltz, -Roger McCormick and Leslie Dunston with John Stein, Brown, Mestrezat, Mc- randa, J. Miller, Gucrricro, Lujack, Galiardi and Blascy as reserves, played 16 games that year and won 12 while losing four, two in the league and as many in independent competition. It- was the lost sectional championship five developed here. Losing twice to Uniontown, Con- ncllsville lost a chance to take of! the gonfalon in Section 11 in 1934 competing with Mount Pleasant; Dunbar Township",' Hurst and Scoltdale. The club played 15 games, 10 of them in the W. P. I. A. L. The icc- ord for the year was 13 wins and two defeats, both dished out by the countyseatcrs who closed their league program without a defeat. The Orange and Black remained in the thick of the flag chase to the end. Uniontown had won the first game 'with the Cokers at Its floor, 24-22, in on extra period but the Maroon and White knocked over the dope bucket-with a decisive,.43-26 victory on the locals' floor as-Reisinger dom- lnated~the~scrap ~before~an~overflow crowd, "The Cokers had won nine consecutive games before the county- seatcrs took the first decision by two points in an overtime tilt' Four more league games in a row .were counted ·before the second reversal was dished out.- - - ·' " · - · · - Sager,-Reed, Fred-Miller, 'Blasey and · Stan- Lujack were the starters for the Orange and Black with Meranda, Marietta, McGinnis, Harper, p. Miller and Mestrezat as the reserves. · -The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette placed Sager-at forward and Lujack at guard on the Section 11 mythical .club-with -Reed, a forward, and Freddy Miller, a center, on the second club. .

Juniors when the latter forfeited in the City WPA' Recreation Center Junior Basketball League with'the theatre boys taking the first half honors. "The M: E. lads .had a chance, to~back up their boast 'of ha'ying a'team" good enough'"for - a post-season series but when they foiled to set foot at State Armory they lost all/right to it," a Paramount spokesman said.. ...
