Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29 f 1952 SEVENTEEN Wardensville, Parsons 'B' Tourneys Open Tonight Apparently, the days of Western Maryland's overwhelming superiority in the state high school basketball setup are over. It used to be that winning the Western Maryland title was tantamount to the state championship, the game with the Eastern Shore victor being more or less * formality. However, the quality of play on the '6ho began to improve several years ago and 1952 may find the championship going to that sector of the state for the flrst time since the tournament for schools in the] cvc ""' s counties was inaugurated back in! Semi-finals of three .other sec- 1927, jtional rounds will also be on to- In addition, the Eastern Shore nlght>s slate - At Moorefield in Section 15, Moorefield plays Franklin at 7:15 and Petersburg* opposes Circleville for a place in the consolation finals. Mathias drew a bye and meets the -Moorefield-Franklin winner for the title tomorrow, In the openers last night, the Yellowjackets dumped Petersburg 59-51, and Mathias stopped Circle- Semi-Finals Set In Three Other Events Moorefield Scores In Section 15; Piedmont Winner In Section 16 Two more West Virginia Class B sectional tourneys get underway tonight with WardensvilJe being host to Section 14 rounds and Parsons staging the Section 12 tournament. Berkeley Springs will play Capon Bridge and Paw Paw faces Wardensville in the Section 14 arrangement. The Parsons tourney, which opens at 7:15. pits Bayard against Thomas In the opener and Davis against Kasson at 8:15. Finals in both events will be played tomorrow players are of the same age. It used to be that in. some parts of the state, « year of junior high was skipped and a boy got only 11 years of schooling, but the system has been unified throughout Maryland, making the limit 12 years. Wicomico High from Salisbury Just missed transferring the title last year when it dropped a 28- pulse-tingler to Hagerstown In the finals of Class A at College Park. These same two teams arc very much in the picture again this year, although Allegany looms as a distinct threat to Hagerstown in the Western Maryland playoff!. If Mel Barr, Mooref ield's doubls-scoi ing punch, hooped 44 of the winners' tallies while Arnold Michael had 17 of Petersburg's totals. John Dove with 15. points paced Mathias while Hinkle pushed In 11 markers for Circleville. ' Henry's Hubs get by Frederick next! At Keyser, Piedmont, which dis- Friday night, they will have to P°sed of Ridgeley, 39-34, last night tangle with Alco the following Friday (March 14) at Frederick. Wicomico, meanwhile, appears to have the "A" crown sewed up on the Eastern Shore, needing a victory over Cambridge to turn the trick. . Prom our friend, Ed Nichols, sports editor of The Salisbury Times, comes the news that Wicomico is undefeated in 1952. Coached- by Sam Seldel, the Wicomico cagers have won 14 straight and have a season's record of 15 victories and two setbacks. They lost their first game in mid- December to Ocean City In a 45-44 upset, but later avenged the setback by a 50-37 count. The other loss came two days before Christmas at the hands of Southern High of Baltimore. This also was a thriller, the final score showing 43 to 41. "Bobby" Cavanaugh sounded the warning for Western Maryland teams several years ago when his Fort Hill quint Invaded the Eastern Shore and knocked over Wicnmlco by a. rather convincing score. in the first rounds of Section 16 play, tackles 7ort Ashby, 53-40 winners over Romney High in the only contest billed tonight. Elk Garden, victors over Romney Deaf, 48-33, in the other tilt played last night, drew a bye and meets the Piedmont-Fort Ashby winner in the finals tomorrow. Max Pyles, Eomney Deaf forward, carried away scoring honors in last night's games tallying 26 points. Lancaster had 18 tallies for Elk Garden. Ronnie Abe accounted for 15 markers for Ridgeley in the losing cause against Piedmont. Jim Bell had 12 points for the winners. Shrivcr and Liller shared • point- making laurels in the Fort Ashby- Romney High tussle. In the Martinsburg Section 13 lourney, finals will be played tonight with Charles Town tangling with Shepherdstown. In the semifinals last night, Charles Town dumped Hedgesville, 35-33, and Shepherdstown Ferry. 44-43. Lineups from last night at Moorefield and Keyser: "The calibre of basketball on the H Shore Is much better, regardless of what our scorebook shows," Cavanaugh declared. "The boys nave shown a definite improvement In their shooting and ball handling and they seem to have a better knowledge of fundamentals." In 1950, "Bill" Bowers' Allegany j basket.ecrs copped the title, but. had! a sqcaker in the fuwls. That! brought the following sage remark I from the sly Mr. Bowers: j i "The basketball picnic for I Western Maryland schools is over." And it looks like Messrs. Cavanaugh and Bowers are correct.
