I Sp orts Northern Basketball Tournament set WOODSVILLE-- Jim Walker, Tourney Director, says this will be the best tournament that the Lion's have ever put on since he took over the reins as the director. The teams are so evenly matched that any one of the teams could go all the way in either class. Sixteen teams were selected from all the applications that poured in from up and down and all over the valley. The tournament committee burned a lot of midnight oil before the final teams were selected to play in the oldest and finest run basketball tournament of it's kind in all of New England. Wednesday evening, Feb. 24. at 7:30 p.m.. the Bradford Loggers meet the Linwood Town Team in the opening game of this colorful event. George Huntington will lead the Bradford outfit and George has probably more trophies tucked away than anyone that ever played in the tournament. Gary Darling's Ryegate Rebels play the final game Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. against the Orford Mets. Gary says this is the year for his Rebels to go all the way and bring home the bacon to all his loyal fans throughout the area. But they will have their hands full as Orford was last year's champions and they will be at full strength. Thursday, Feb. 25 at 7:00 p.m. Thetford will meet the Lisbon Town Team. Lisbon is a tough contender so the boys from Vermont will have to hustle if they want to win this one. The 8:30 p.m. game between Littleton Town Team and Chelsea Greens, from way over in Vermont will brin two past champions of this tour- nament together. They both know the calibre of play so the fur will fly in this one. At 10:00 p.m., the opening game in the "A" Class brings together the Twin River Sports, a former "A" Champion and a team from way down in Norwood, N.H. Friday at 7:00 p.m. last year's champions, Westbury Park of Colchester, Vt., will stack up against a worthy contender from White River Jct. David Atkins will probably fly over in his helicopter and will be well geared up to lake home another crown along with his excellent sharpshooters from the Green Mountain State. At 8:30 p.m.. Dave Robin- son's Haverhill Hawks. led by the one and only Tuffy Clark, meet the boys from "way up north" in Berlin. N.H. Dave says this is his year. so the paper makers will have to hustle. At I0:00 p.m.. the Franconia Stingers lock horns with an all new team from Mt. Washington. Franconia has been a tourney favorite for years and have been cham- pions m the "B'" class but this year they moved up and will fight it out all the way to win the crown in the big "A" Class. "B" semi4inals will he played Saturday night at 7:30 p.m an4 9:00 p.m.. and Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 pro. The semi-finals will be played in the "A" class. Sunday night the "B" Championship Game will be played at 7:00 p.m. with the "AS" Championship game to follow at g: 30 p.m. The 42nd Lion's Northern Amateur Basketball Tour- nament should be a hum- dinger and the fans will get plenty of action Wednesday night through Sunday evening when the champions will be crowned in both class. A truckload of trophies will be awarded at the close of festivities on Sunday night, and this year the trophies are the finest that the tournament. has ever presented. Also, Sunday evening a new "Sharp" Microwave Oven will be presented to some lucky winner! The Lion's kitchen will be open throughout the tour- nament so plenty of food will be available. Also the Lionetts will have their table full of sweets to help raise money for lheir many projects. All money received from this Lion's Charity Tour- nament will be used to help build up the area and help people that need help along life's journey. Record 9.8, two 00zames left Oxbow takes BRADFORD-- Two dismal performances against North Country, 63-45, and Hanover, 88-69, were quickly forgotten as the Olympians ran roughshod over the Woodstock Wasps, 60-48 last Saturday afternoon. Playing at home, Oxbow was plagued by lackidasical play, inconsistent per- sting out of Wasps The Marauders connected on commanding 43 to 24 half time 65 percent of their first period lead. Time and time again, the shots, spurting to a 24-9 lead. A guard duo of Huntington and Gary Hayward steal and Hayward were able to subsequent field goal cut the penetrate the Wasp defense to lead to 9, 34-25 but some hot pass of to Grant, Stever and shooting by Hanover and Paige for easy two pointers. In the first half alone Dave substituting by Oxbow opened up the lead to 15 again, 16 at the half, 45-29. It was run and gun for both teams the rest of the way with Oxbow coming out on the short end, 88-69 at the final buzzer. Regrouping the squad was the aim of coach Jim Kelly with the game against Woodstock, Oxbow's third in four days. Whatever formula he had, he'd better save it for the playdowns as the Olym- pians outlasted the Wasps 60- 48 in a game that was not close aRer the first four minutes. Charlie Grant hit for two quick field goals, Huntington added one, and two free throws by Huntington and Dave Stever and Oxbow suddenly led 10-2 at 4:19. By the time Woodstock had hit their first two pointer, they were behind 13-4. The quarter ended with an Oxbow 10 point lead, 18-8. Oxbow's success continued in the second quarter, out- scoring the surprised Wasps (7-7), 25 to 16, holding a Stever connected for 15 points, collected 19 for the night. Both teams showed effects of three games in a week in the final half. The tempo slowed to a mere crawl, Oxbow hitting for 17 points, Woodstock for 24, but not enough to come close to the fired-up Olympians. Dave Stever led Oxbow with 19, with Ron Huntington contributing 11, and Charlie Grant nine. Statistics showed Oxbow dropping in 20 field goals in 55 attempts, compared to 19 of 44 from the floor for the visiting Wasps. Oxbow held the winning cards in the free throw stats, 2028 to only 10 of 22 for Woodstock. This Wednesday, St. Johnsbury brings their basketball show to Oxbow, sporting a 16-4 record. The final season game will be Friday evening against U-32, still struggling for the final playdown spot, and hoping to avenge a bad-tasting loss to the Olympians two weeks ago, 52-51. DEFENSE-- Charlie Grant, No. 24 trying to keep the ball in the backcourt against Woodstock as Ron Huntington, No. 11, Dave Stever, No. 31 and Gary Hayward, No. 12 all keep an eye on the ball and their man, Oxbow won handily, 60- 48.

Record 9.8, two 00zames left Oxbow takes BRADFORD-- Two dismal performances against North Country, 63-45, and Hanover, 88-69, were quickly forgotten as the Olympians ran roughshod over the Woodstock Wasps, 60-48 last Saturday afternoon. Playing at home, Oxbow was plagued by lackidasical play, inconsistent per- sting out of Wasps The Marauders connected on commanding 43 to 24 half time 65 percent of their first period lead. Time and time again, the shots, spurting to a 24-9 lead. A guard duo of Huntington and Gary Hayward steal and Hayward were able to subsequent field goal cut the penetrate the Wasp defense to lead to 9, 34-25 but some hot pass of to Grant, Stever and shooting by Hanover and Paige for easy two pointers. In the first half alone Dave substituting by Oxbow opened up the lead to 15 again, 16 at the half, 45-29. It was run and gun for both teams the rest of the way with Oxbow coming out on the short end, 88-69 at the final buzzer. Regrouping the squad was the aim of coach Jim Kelly with the game against Woodstock, Oxbow's third in four days. Whatever formula he had, he'd better save it for the playdowns as the Olym- pians outlasted the Wasps 60- 48 in a game that was not close aRer the first four minutes. Charlie Grant hit for two quick field goals, Huntington added one, and two free throws by Huntington and Dave Stever and Oxbow suddenly led 10-2 at 4:19. By the time Woodstock had hit their first two pointer, they were behind 13-4. The quarter ended with an Oxbow 10 point lead, 18-8. Oxbow's success continued in the second quarter, out- scoring the surprised Wasps (7-7), 25 to 16, holding a Stever connected for 15 points, collected 19 for the night. Both teams showed effects of three games in a week in the final half. The tempo slowed to a mere crawl, Oxbow hitting for 17 points, Woodstock for 24, but not enough to come close to the fired-up Olympians. Dave Stever led Oxbow with 19, with Ron Huntington contributing 11, and Charlie Grant nine. Statistics showed Oxbow dropping in 20 field goals in 55 attempts, compared to 19 of 44 from the floor for the visiting Wasps. Oxbow held the winning cards in the free throw stats, 2028 to only 10 of 22 for Woodstock. This Wednesday, St. Johnsbury brings their basketball show to Oxbow, sporting a 16-4 record. The final season game will be Friday evening against U-32, still struggling for the final playdown spot, and hoping to avenge a bad-tasting loss to the Olympians two weeks ago, 52-51. DEFENSE-- Charlie Grant, No. 24 trying to keep the ball in the backcourt against Woodstock as Ron Huntington, No. 11, Dave Stever, No. 31 and Gary Hayward, No. 12 all keep an eye on the ball and their man, Oxbow won handily, 60- 48.
