Bob's Tavern CITY LEAGUE STANDINGS WL Jess Mobil 6 1 6 2 5 2 1 6 0 7 Journal - Thursday, February 4, 1971 By CHARLES GAY Kevin Dorcy led his Shelton I-lighclimbers past league-leading Centralia Friday night in a wild Shelton Gym, 75-70, with 21 points and some brilliant defensive play. Head Coach Terry Gregg of the Climbers said it was the finest overall team effort of the season. Most of the fans in the gym would agree. Shelton had their best scoring night of the season and beat the Tigers who had previously beaten the Climbers 80-53 in a rout. It was the second game of the week where the Climbers had to face huge opposing centers. On Tuesday, Shelton got its first look at Jeff Smith, a big boy from Chehalis. Smith made 38 points on 19 field goals. Scott Hamilton, Centralia's 6'8" center, also gave the Climbers trouble. Hamilton made 28 points but he was not enough to win the game alone. Dorcy and his gang of Highclimbers burnt the nets most of the game. The first quarter saw the visiting Tigers take a 20-17 lead, Hamilton leading them with seven. Dorcy kept Shelton in it by making eight points. Bruce Cole and Rich Walker led a second quarter comeback by the Climbers that succeeded, giving them a 39-34 edge at the half. Cole and Walker had six each and Bill Bacon added four as Shelton outscored the visitors 22-14 in that quarter to take the lead. The Climbers never gave up the lead. Everything seemed to go fight for them in the second half except for a Centralia scoring binge at the end of the game. Dorcy had nine points in the third period, some on steals, and Cole made five more as the Climbers poured it on to lead 57-44 at the end of the third stanza. Shelton at one time led by 17 in the game before blowing it considerably. Bill Bacon hit everything he shot in the final quarter and Mike Bac and Rocky Nutt added four apiece as the Climbers continued to keep the pressure on. Suddenly with a minute and a half to go, a big lead began to crumble because of a Tiger press and numerous turnovers. However, the lead was so big that it was simply impossible for the Tigers to pull it out. Hamilton made 12 points in the fourth quarter as his Centralia team struck for 26 to Shelton's 18. For the game, the Tigers had nine men in the scoring column, three in double figures. Shelton had four in double figures among six scorers. Besides Dorcy with 21, Bacon was next high with 15. The junior starting guard hit five of five from the charity line as well as five from the field. Cole garnered 12, including four of five from the line. Bac made ten and was a perfect two of two from the line. Rocky Nutt made one of one from the line on his way to nine points. Rich Walker was the last scorer with eight points. Shelton was 13 of 18 from the free throw line and hit 31 field goals, the highest number they've hit this season. The Climbers are now 7-6 for the season and 5-4 in league. They had a three-game winning streak in league after the victory. This Friday Shelton gets a bye and prepares for Olympia on Tuesday, February 9, in Shelton Gym. That game will begin at 7:30 p.m. Donkey basketball will make its appearance in ShaRon Gym this Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Three games with eight minute halves will be played.
