PORT CLINTON WON, 69-68 22 REOISTERSTAR NEWS Rantftisksr, O., W«d., Dec. 21, 1955 Final Buzzer Found Panthers One Short ll.y JOHN MALCOLM R-S-N Sport* Editor Today may be the "shortest" day of the year, but St. Mary's was thinking about the word in terms of their Own following last night's loss to Port Clinton. For the end of their modc.'^l two-game victory siring canio by the shortest of margins, (59-08, in a thrilling and well-played game at t)ie Panthers' .Jefler.son- st gym. The fir.st three t|uarlers were hectic and the final one maddening with the lead changing lianrls four times and the Porters simply leading by one at the final buraer and that's what coimts. IT'S DP to St. Mary's now to come back Friday night at Norwalk, for there's no sense in looking back on a game like last night's. They lost to a hot-shooting, rangy and well-drilled club that miglit well be one of the top club'.s in this .section. For the Panthers also turned in a fine performanco: their sense of timing just wasn't right. They started off like, they'd run the Porter.s rigJit out of the gym, but suddenly the ring seemed to reduce in .size for about four minutes in the second period and they never really got their shooting eye .straightened out until the final period. The winners wound up hitting 42 percent, a real cool figure, on 29 goals in 69 attempts. St. ATary'.s wa.sn't exactly cold, turn- TWO OF 19—Hard-working St. Mary's senior Jimmy Green is •hown driving: for a bucket last night against the Porters. Green finished with 19 points and turned in a great rebounding job against the visitors, —Harley Holfman Photos Men! Free Gift Wrapping your gift- in a Joseph's box. One package or one hundred will be wrapped free of charge at ing in a 37 percentage on 30 of 81. And aside from the hot shoui- ing, it was a sparkling game from ine standpoint of very few bad passes and other mlscues with the action torrid throughout. • * • ST. MARY'S led 18-12 at the first quarter mark, but the visitors, or rath«r John Papcum, rallied for a 32-31 half time margin. The deadly-shooting 6-2 Pap­ cum—who wound up with 30 points for the game — drilled seven two-pointers home and added two fouls in the second session as PC outdistanced the Panthers 18-13. The Porters hiked their advantage one more point follow-j ing the intermission to lead 50-j 48 entering the final eight minutes. Chuck Brady, canning 26 In all, led the home cagers in the fourth period as he dropped through 12 points with some sensational shot-making, but it simply wasn't enough. Contributing mightily to the win was the Porters' rebounding duo of 6-6 Tim Mulligan and 6-3 John Bergman. Mulligan slapped home two rebounds in ihe final period that really hurt. Jimmy Green turned in some great rebounding work along with Bob Gardner and Tom Kaman, and wound up with 19 points. Gardner was next with 10. Marion Upsets Findlay Marion Harding roared Into the favorite's role in the Buckeye Conference last night as they polished off Findlay's defending champion Trojans, 64-63. It was Harding's second straight loop win, with Sandusky High its earlier victim. Findlay is now 1-1. Lorain can tie for the top spot tonight with a victory at home over Sandusky. The fast-breaking visitors swept to a 33-24 halftime lead and were never headed by Carl Bachman's crew. The Prexies hit 56 percent from the field in the first two periods. Harold Jones led the winners with 26 points, while Bob Johnson's 15 led the Trojans.
