Page 4 Satan's Errors Undoes Otherwise Good Game •Cage-ology By Eldon Cage Tribune Sports Editor , FT. WAYNE « Practice should make perfect, but no matter how many games a writer tries to analyze a defeat, none has ever found the formula to convince himself, the readers and fans that the analysis proves a win. So ^n 1981, 10 years from now when there is no Ft Wayne Central High School basketball team, because it becomes a vocational school in 1972, Tipton fans can say that despite the fact that the losing 1970-71 season was a rebuilding, year, there were two mighty good senior players on that team named Bob Richardson and Jim YortT even if both were crippled through more than half of the season. Tipton dropped Saturday night's game here 78-65 to the tall, fast and springy Ft. Wayne Central Tigers, but not until all witnesses knew that 10 costly Devil errors gave the Central Tigers their 1.0th win, in lieu of their fifth defeat. " The Tigers scored first on a fielder and then Moses' Midgets York, Richardson, Jeff Juday, Bill Sullivan and Joe Achenbach all scored and took a 17-10 first quarter lead and then upped this to 19-11 before that dreaded dis­ ease "erroritis" let the Tigers Ron Barnes and Ron Kennedy get enough "garbage shots" to edge in front 30?29 at,the half. Bob Richardson picked up four fielders in the.second canto and had the misfortune to miss four or five other shots, some justifiably missed because of Richardson's being used for a saddle animal by the opposition. Then came the tragic third period when five more consecutive inbound play errors cost Tipton 10 quick points and possibly the game. Normally the t Devils would have laughed at the Central press, because the Satans • faced much better this season, but confusion reigned supreme for about four minutes as Coach John Moses called time-out three times, attempting to settle his lads and show them how to resolve the "pushy Tigers." Barnes, Lafayette Jordan, Tyrone Bishop and Jerry Lapsley benefitted scoring wise from the Devil errors to run the count to 62-40 at the end of three periods, with a 32-11 period spread. Things got worse in the fourth period before they got better as the Tigers made money on two more errors to run the count to 66-40 and then Tim Clouser, Bill Sullivan and Richardson explod- (Continued on page six) THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Tri-Central Trojan Rush Falls One Bucket Short; Lose To Western 68-66 MONDAY, JANUARY 25,1971 By Eldon Cpge,Tribune Sports Editor' The National Finals of the Punt, Pass and Kick shown on TV Sunday at the'halftime of the All-Star Pro Football game, brought to mind Tipton's local competition last October sponsored by the Don Ross Motor Company with about 100 county youth participating on a cold, windy Saturday morning on the Tipton H^S. = field and the resulting tabulations showed 13 year-old Dirk Baxter taking first place in that age class with over 300 points, the highest ever made in the 10 years of the competition here. During the 10 years about 1250 boys have competed in the local event. Too, an estimated 200 Tipton adults also have assisted and thanks to them. The : 12-year-old winner here was Tom Kleyla; the 11 age winner was Brad Miller; the 10 year- old was Chris Baxter; the nine year class winner was Bobby Woods; the eight year-old champ was Brent Tishner. All six of the Tipton County lads went to Kokomo Haworth High School for the next step competition and did Central Tiger Surrounded Tipton High School Varsity Cheerleaders and Fort Wayne Central Cheerleaders surrounding Central's Tiger Mascot, during the half time of the Tipton-Central Game Saturday night in Ft. Wayne. The girls had just jointly sung Happy Birthdays to a Central High School supervisor and also over radio a Happy Birthday to Mrs. Dick Stewart, wife of the radio announcer. The Tipton cheerleaders are Robin Yohe, with big block letter T in front row, center, and then curving behind her are other Tipton cheerleaders Marsha McElfresh, Natlie Green and Linda Lambert. Then to right is Tiger Mascot head whispering in Laurel Zehner's ear. (Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) . I ' '-' MOTHERS' MARCH Confidence Builder.-.

Last June, Dirk Baxter won the local competition for his age group in the baseball Pitch, Hit and Throw and thenwon the state, the Regional, and was in the competition in Cleveland, Ohio before a computer was given the job to determine a National win-, ner and the local Bulk Gasoline distributor, James Cox did not like the attitude of the computer when it "did not do right by Dirk." C-0 Floyd Hamblen, Tipton Golf Course Pro for about 15 years was in Tipton three times during December and January on a " schedule with! his local dentist. Floyd is the Pro at the Southwest Golf Course in Marion Coun- .ty and he conveys "hellos" to his many friends in Tipton. C-0 Two 17 year-old Central Indiana High School basketball star players, both of whom will have played against Tipton after next Friday night, were on the Don Hein Sports Line TV Show Sunday. The two stars are of course Rick McCoskey of Hamilton Heights, Indiana's highest average point maker, who will play against Tipton here this Friday night. The other star was 7 * foot John Garrett, of the Peru Tigers who scored 30 plus points against Tipton December 18 here in the Devils den. Despite the fact we are rooting against these two fine young bas- ketballers when they are "trying to do our Devils in,".we are for them 100 percent when they are competing against any other y team/because they are both clean, cut, honest, self-sacrificing young men and athlete's, who will both go far in the sports world and we will be pleased to recall that they both played at Tipton in the 1970-71 season. Both McCoskey and Garrett'made fine appearances on TV and were so honest and forthright in their answers that we have to say this generation has some of the greatest youngsters that.ever lived. C-0 David Achenbach, Tipton High School graduate of 1970 and a former Blue Devil football, basketball, baseball and track performer, and who was a Tipton pool lifeguard for three summers, came home from college over the weekend to see his family and to see his kid brother Joe Achenbach play for the Tipton varsity against Noblesvilleandat Ft, Wayne Central.

By Eldon Cage . Tribune. Sports Editor Assist By Tom Gourley Sharpsville --Western Panther's "Quick Draw Expert" Rick Chaplin was given too much liberty by the Tri-Central Trojans defense here Saturday night and with the late scoring help of John Tharpe just crept past the Trojans 68-66. The Trojans twice had a chance to capture Chaplin, Tharpe and Company for the hanging in the final seconds with the score tied at 66, but the Trojans gun powder was just a bit damp and the potential target was missed twice, in comparison to John Tharpe's two "dry pow. der shots" which hit the target and won the "cigar." •Coach John Harding was heart sick that his Trojans missed 20 free throws and many were at ; the head of the one plus one- variety- which was doubly costly.

Harding said he used, the box and one on Rick Chaplin to good advantage part of the time, but on several occassions his pivot defense sagged too far out and gave Chaplin enough easy "garbage" shots to .put Western in the drivers seat, where they could conserve more energy for the final dash to win the 10. best chairs at the banquet table. Western's B team too, took advantage of the Trojan B squad's off night in the shooting department to take a 47-38 win.
