For the second time in their last five games, the Shelton High- climbers were blanked from the floor in a Northern Division prep basketball contest, Elma turning the trick Friday night at Elma in the final game of the year while winning a 20 to 12 victory. All the Highclimber scoring came from the foul line, where the Shelton players connected a dozen times in 20 efforts. Elma’s rough-and-tumble defense kept the Highclimbers from sinking a lot of their shots, the Eagle defenders committing 18 fouls, and then Shelton was as frigid as a polar night on what open shots, were available. I Elma lost three players via the l Milt Clothier and Bob Pierce each converted a free throw only to personal foul route and had a have Claflin knot the count: fourth on the ragged edge. Shel— ton had three players each with three fouls. The Eagles themselves weren’t hitting the twine very consistent- ly for they netted only eight field goals in the rough battle. The game was the last of their prep careers for Seniors Jim Mc- Comb, Jim Rose, Walt Eddy and George Valley. The thrills of Friday’s prep program, however, were dished out by the second teams, with Shelton winning a 26 to 24 de- decision in a double-overtime struggle. Lanky Sam Wilson rammed home the winning basket in the “sudden death” second over- time after the two clubs had fail- ed to break their deadlock in the first extra period. The two clubs wound up in a 22-22 tie at the end of regular time and during the first three-minute overtime again with a basket seconds be-- fore the period ended. Clouthier sunk three freel throws and two field goals to top both teams with ten points. The lineups: FIRST TEAMS Elma (20) Shelton (12) 1 Anderson 5 ...... ..

I-IOQUIAM WINS TITLE IN Hoquiam, March 8.—-(Speci_al)—— Hoquiam earned its fifth straight trip to the state prep basketball tournament here last night by clinching the Northern Division title through a 36 to 31 overtime victory over the Raymond Sea- gulls. Tied at 30-30 at the end of regular time, the Grizzlies rush- ed the Gulls off their feet in the overtime as Wittren hit once and Clayton twice. At one point in the fourth quar- ter the officials were forced to call a time out and let the cagers cool off, so fierce was the pace and the desire to win on both sides.
