By CHARLES GAY Bruce Cole, Shelton's center, led a third-quarter charge that enabled the Highclimbers to come from behind and defeat Tumwater 56-51 Saturday night on the T-Birds' floor. Shelton fell behind early in the contest and was at an 18-9 disadvantage at the end of the initial period. No Climber had more than two points. Shelton was still down by nine at the half, 26-17. Then Cole outscored the entire T-Bird team in the third quarter. The Climbers took the lead by the end of that period by 40-37. They scored 23 points in the third frame to Tumwater's 11. Cole had 12 of Shelton's points on six buckets. Kevin Dorcy added four and Rocky Nutt helped with three to put the Climbers past the T-Birds. Cole ended up the game's high scorer with 22 points, edging out the T-Birds' Bill Yandle who had 20. Yandle had eight of Tumwater's 11 in the third quarter. ' Shelton outscored the hosts 16-14 in the last quarter to insure the victory. Had the Climbers made a better free throw percentage, they could have been more comfortable in the game.

They lost two in a row before meeting Tumwater, but the win set them at 5-6 Shelton's scorers in the game were Cole 22, Dorcy 11, Mike Bac 10, Bill Bacon 7, and Nutt 6. Aberdeen's Bobcats sent the Highclimbers down in defeat Friday night in Shelton gym, 67-54, for the Climbers' fourth league loss of the season.

Four seniors kept Shelton in the game in the first quarter. Center Bruce Cole had six points, Kevin Dorcy and Mike Bac had three and Rocky Nutt made two. For Aberdeen, it was their ability to draw fouls and convert on the free throws. The Bobcats made nine of 12 first period free throws and got into a bonus situation because of numerous Shelton fouls. The second quarter was the only time the Climbers outscored Aberdeen. They made 16 points to the visitors' 12 to pull within one at the half, 31-30. Nutt led the charge with five points and junior Neal White added four. The Bobcats pulled away fast in the third quarter. It was 49-39 at that period's end, after Aberdeen outscored Shelton 18-9. Bac had four points for the Climbers. Aberdeen's lead increased by the end of the contest. Cole had seven more for the hosts, but Aberdeen kept hitting the foul shots and stayed on top. Bad foul shooting was part of the reason for Shelton's loss. They made only 10 of 22 from the line. Climber scoring went as follows: Cole 16, Bac 10, Nutt 9, Dorcy 7, Rich Walker 6, White 4, Jeff Okano 2. Shelton's record stood at 4-6 after the loss.
