Ferrara had the lead over the first four hurdles, but Ancona edged slightly Into the lead after that and just held it at the finish. Both runners were timed in 38.6, a remarkable time under the circumstances with only on straight-away of running and starting and ending on a curve. In other events, area individuals did well. In the sprints, Sparta's Walt Thompson made tha finals In both the 100 and 220. He was fourth in the 100 won by Charlie Walker, of Lakewood, in 10.0.

Trenton Cops Soccer Cup A young, scrappy Trenton Extention soccer club pulled the biggest surprise of the weekend at Hinchliffe Stadium, by fighting its way to the finals and then -walking off with the Cup of Cham-pions in Paterson's first Soccer Tournament of Champions. "Most of the team is com-pojed of high school players", although we do have some from college," coach Joe Secretario said , of his amateur charges. "And this sqOad isn't even our firit string. We have some pretty vital games coming up in our league so we had to leave some of the fellows home." Secretario was referring to his club's participation in the South Division of the Schaefer League. Trenton has an excellent opportunity of grabbing first place in that statewide competition. Still, Extension's composure was phenomenal in this .am ateur - professional DADDY BAIT i t&i) ,-'': ''"! A 1 I '"I ' . k ft, v iliilif!

Route 23 Pompton Plains 8391313 competition, especially In the final contest, when it blanked the determined, aggressive Luso-Americans, 2-0. Luso had beaten the Polish Falcons, a watered-down version of the N.Y. Intergiuliana and Paterson Bozkurt. Bozkurt gave a good accounting of itself, winning two of three. Darkhorse Trenton, led by the steady, probing, tenacious play of Kevin Welsh and Glenn Myernick, who each tallied two goals in their four games, whipped the Roma Sport Club, the N.Y. Hungarians and the favored N.Y. Hellenic squad en route to the championship. Extension's Welsh, playing inside left, was particularly outstanding, taking the tournament's "Most Valuable Player" award. But defense was the name of the game in the 12-team, 11-game under-the-lights competition. Nine of the games resulted in shutouts, while Bozkurt and Extension led all in scoring with five, goals apiece, although the former was Involved In one less game. Another surprise In the colorful play, which saw nine different nationalities taking part, was the lackluster performance of the Gaucnos club. Gauchos, usually a force to be reckoned with, was upset in its opener with U.S. Macedonia, 2-1, as Macedonia's John Oldja scored both times. Macedonia was later knock ed out of contention in it confrontation with Hellenic . in the last minute of play. In addition to first and second-place trophies awarded to Extension and Luso, run-nerup trophies were given to Bozkurt and Hellenic. Each of the four will also receive part of the proceeds of the evening.

Wnswuni JOE ANCONA, of Mahwah. won th atate All-Group 330-yard intermediate hurdles champlonhlp Saturday at Rutgers University, nipping Wayne Hills' Joe Ferrara in a stirring race to the wire. Both area runners were clocked in the identical time of 3S.A. By RICK aDOWSKI News' Sports Staff MADISON The Boonton lacrosse team would love to replay the first and fourth quarters of Us combined groups state championship match with Montclalr. It was in these two periods that the Bombers were outacored by an 8-1 margin on the way to a 9-2 defeat, here Saturday, at Fairlelgh Dickinson University. "You can't score, if you don't shoot," the old axiom says and that's exactly what happened to the defending state champions, especially in those two decisive stanzas. While the Bombers, who closed out a fine season with a 10-4 record, were making Just six shots on goal, Montclalr was peppering Boonton goaltender Jim Van Langen with 22. "We expected to get a few more shots than we did and we Just didn't get them," said dejected Bomber coach, Dick Risk. But Risk doesn't feel that the shots, or lack of them, .were .the only factors In his club's loss. 'There was nothing particular, just the general play, Montclalr performed well. They executed. They just beat us." And while Montclair's squad, which now owns a 13-2 mark (lnlcuding an 11-4 victory over Boontoh In an earlier meeting this season) was playing near-perfect defense, the Mounties were also doing well at the offensive end of the field. It took the winners lust 3:52 to take a commanding 3-0 lead, an advantage Montclalr. was never in any serious danger of losing. The Mounties used ball control, deceptive moves and finesse to pressure the young Boon-ton team (which included 10 sophomores) Into several defensive mistakes. Midfielder John Mutch didn't waste any time putting the Mounties on the scoreboard with a pair of goals within a span of three minutes and flya seconds. He opened up the contest's scoring at 0:32 after taking a pass from attackman Joe Reilly and then rifled another shot, unassisted, past Van Langen at the ' 3:37 mark. The Mountle game, aggressive play on offense while keeping Boonton hemmed up in its own end on defense, worked almost perfectly. The only defensive lapses they had occurred after building up 4-0 and 8-1 leads. The first took place at the start of the second half after Boonton's John Toland took a 10-foot shot that sailed over the Montclalr net. But the Bomber's Brian Kee retrieved the loose sphere and passed off to Paul Belshaw, who beat Montclalr goalie Dave Dufresne with a 40-foot line drive at 1:07, of the third period. The second and final sue cessful offensive thrust by Boonton came In the final quarter when sophomore Wayne Krum scampered down the right sideline, be fore bouncing a shot past Dufresne with 10:25 to go.
