Tight Finishes In Com Shoot Page 12 Near misses don't count in the world of sports. And the "also rans" never quite make Monday morning's headlines." ftone - the less, were it not for the close races and the almost- made-its, few competitive sports would attract the fol'owing they do. Trap shooting, for one, is that way. And the big Corn Shoot at Tuscarora Satur- dy and Sunday produced i s share of close finishes. The tighest of these came late Saturday afternoon after Baltimore trapshooter Stan Voche nosed out the best of 117 registered shooters to take the 16 yard singles. Vocke had to fire a perfect 100 to win, and he was pushed right down to the wire hy no less than seven other clay bird breakers, each scoring 99. Close as this race was the shoot-off that followed to decide which of the seven was to claim runner-up honors was even closer. Included in the seven-WRv tie were Richard Sharrer, Frederick; Ohmer Webb Sr., Washington, D.C.; Harry Neudecker. Westminster; Bill Day, Takoma Park; and three out-of-staters, Vir- gil Mathias, W. Va. ; and Rlph Scruton and Ji m Stine, both of Pennsylvania. Although Webb, who shot like he could last all night, finally won the marathon, he had to run 125 straight overtime targets to do it. So as it turned out, the race for second best was a lot tighter than the first place finish. And except for one muffed target, any one of the seven might have been the one to make the headlines. Sharrer and Day both shot well in the 16 yard singles, the doubles and the handicap--well enough that by late Sunday afternoon they were tied for High-Over-AU honors with only a few squads left to shoot. Few seemed to realize at that point how ctae a race was being run for the coveted H-O-A. One shooter had a chance to tie or beat Sharrer and Day's score. He was Jeff Langlcy of Bryantown, the 'ast of 217 entries to fire the 100 target handicap evpnt. Dusk was coming on fast and the targets were becoming harder to see as he shot his 'ast set of 25 birds. But he shot well enough to take Photo by Jim Gl ford TOP SINGLES JR. -- Jeff Kurd. 14 year old Hagsrsto*n gun ner. holds the trophy he won Saturday for taking Hi-gun in the Junior division of the 16 yard singlrs match.

September 6, 1967 Pete s Jet Cops C-T Purse the lead from Sharrer and Day and went on to win High-Over-All. Although they finished in second place, out of the headlines, Sharrer and Day set the score that had to be beat. Some other sidelights from this shoot deserve attention, too. A pair of young trap- shooters from this area gave a good account of themselves in the junior division. In Saturday's 16 yard singles, 14 year old Jeff Kurd from Hagerstown, who has been shooting trap for less than a year, scored an impressive 98 x 100 to take Hi- Junior gun He also fired an 89 in the doubles and posted a 93 in the handicap from the 20 yard marker. H i s combined score in the three events was only six targets down from Langley's H -OA winning tally. Charles Burtner Jr., 16 year old clay target shooter from Middletown, also ran some fine scores for his class. Off to a shaky start Saturday, he dropped six of his 15 targets before setting down to smash the next 81 straight. Then on Sunday, t h e young gunner from Middletown scored 95 x 100 from 20 yards to take the trophy for Hi-Junior gun in the handicap. And last but not least, to use a tired diche, are the men and women who kept the score, cooked the corn and ran the shoot. In the heat of competition, the tremendous job they do all too often goes unnoticed. And I think, of all those who should come in for a share of Monday morning's headlines, none deserve it more--nor receive it less-than they. CHARLES TOWN, W. Va. Herbert C. Boorse's Pete's Jet teamed up with leading jockey Robert Howard in the featured Mooney Escann Purse at Charles Town Race Course and arrived at the winner's circle a length before George Sims' Yastrzemski Blasts Two, Bosox Win WASHINGTON (AP) -- Carl Yastrzemski blasted his way out of a batting slump with his 37th and 38th home runs of the season Tuesday night as the Boston Red Sox battered Washington 82. Yastrzemski, who singled in his first time at bat, capped a six-run Boston fourth with a three-run homer and then added a bases-empty shot in the seventh. Both homers sailed into the Red Sox bullpen. Boston has picked Frank Bertaina for a run in the first on a walk, Yastrzemski's single and an infield out. Then the Red Sox opened it up in the fourth.

Middletown Faces Pleasant Walk Middletown will take on Pleasant Walk at 6 p.m. at Myersville in the final regular season game of the Maryland State League season. The contest will help decide the seedings for the league playoffs, which will begin Sunday. If Middletown defeats Pleasant Walk, it will vault into a tie for second place in the league with Mount Airy. In such a case, a method will have to be found to decide the second- seeded team. The method has been discussed by league managers, but no decision has been reached. p-Wolf. Three quarters of a length farther back came Lois, V. Henry's Itsagirl.
