Bears Split
With Crater
Journeying to another point
for their first action in the
Southern Oregon Conference,
the Ashland eager crew suffer
ed their third and most disap
pointing loss of the season.
The Grizzlies completely domi
nated the first half as they
built up a fast 14-5 first quar
ter margin of superiority and
tipped that lead to 23-11 at
halftime as the offense clicked
from the start and the defense
contained Crater's scoring am
bitions. This comfortable picture
changed considerably in the
second half as the Comets zip
ped out into a small court
press and began working their
offense. Crater outscored the
Grizzlies 13-5 in the third quar
ter to come within hailing dis
tance, 28-24. Hot from the
field and the foul line, the
Comets knotted he affair at
