To Chiertains
The junior varsity hoopstcrs
lost their opening game of the
season 51-30 to the Rogue River
varsity squad.
Coach Richard Copple had a
few comments after the game.
"This being the kids' first game,
they did pretty good. They also
did better than the score shows.
Rogue River was faster and taller
than most of the squad which
helped them win this game."
"Dick Calhoun and Lonny Slack
did an outstanding job offensively
and defensively. John Mitchell
and Tim Richards did a good job
for the defensive squad," stated
coach Copple.
The Grizzlies were behind at
half time 14-30, despite the efforts
of Slack, Korthase, Calhoun,
Mitchell, Richards, and Carter.
In the second half, the Bears
gained most of their points on
foul shots. John Matteson sank
3 out of 4, Weaver sank 2, Carter
1, Richards 2, Mitchell 2, Calhoun
1, and Slack 1.
