Orford started out slow and was unable to put together any semblance of an offense in the first half, falling behind by 14, 28-14. The inside play of Dawn Woodward and the playmaking and scoring of Naomi Smith, both hitting for double figures, pulled the Wildcats close, but not close enough as the Lakers won their third game without a loss. Woodward and Smith hit for 14 and 11 respectively while Amy Messer added nine and Wendy Messer four. Orford travelled to winless Whitcomb and added to the Hornet woes, beating them 44- 39 in a close contest. The Wildcats led at the half 20-19, squandering a 12-6 first quarter lead. The game was close down the stretch with neither team taking more than a six point lead. In the end it was the strong foul shooting by Orford that made the difference. Outscored by one in the field, a 14-7 foul line advantage more than made up the difference. Amy Messer was the scoring star for Orford, connecting on nine free throws and 17 points. A supporting cast of Dawn Woodward with 14 and Naomi Smith with t0 blended well for the Wildcats. Oxbow 55, St. Johnsbury 53 ST. JOHNSBURY-- A Matt Dobbins field goal off the glass and through the net with two seconds left propelled the Olympians past 1982 Division II Champs St. Johnsbury last week. Setting the stage for Dobbins' heroics was Jody Pratt, sinking a free throw with a minute left, tying the score at 53-53. Oxbow had gone ahead by 2, 52-50 on the strength of Becky Ledwith's two free throws with 2:57 left in the game. For the night, Oxbow hit on 19 of 28 free throws, St. Jay a poor 3 for 19. With two seconds left, however, the game wasn't over, as the Olympians fouled going after a loose ball. With time expiring, Tammy Armour, high point for the night with 20, went to the line with an opportunity to send the game into overtime. She missed the front end of the one and one situation, giving Oxbow the victory. In the first quarter, both teams weffe plagued with turnovers. The Olympians startc't with a full court press and ended the quarter up by two, 17-15. Oxbow threw away a six point lead during the second eight minutes, settling for a 27-27 tie at the half. Hitting on 11 of 13 foul shots in the third quarter Oxbow was able to start the final quarter ahead by one, 46-45, building up to the final three minutes of play. Jody Pratt with 13 foul shots, totaled 19 points with Becky Ledwith hitting in double figures with 12. Brenda Peterson and Dobbins added six each, Janine Teeter five, Penny Cook with four and Wendy Cook finished the night with three.
