all members of the coaching jury Cedars Rate Mention Lebanons Cedars were accord ed some recognition by coaches of opposing teams too as four Cedara received votes in the all league poll on the Honor Clayton Gibble Lebanons j burly junior fallback polled two ballots from rival coaches along with Dickey William Penn and Tost Williamsport and two votes were two less than required to make the first team Gibble was the lone Cedar to receive as many as two votes too as Frank Ail a cocaptain and end Bill Bronghall and John Wengert tackles and Lloyd Miller 1 guard each received Tote Afl Bronghall

Experienced Toller Blue Raiders Take Commanding Early Lead Local Come back Efforts Prove Futile But Lebanon Jayvees Stage Spirited Comeback To Win Opener Lebanons Cedar dribblers got started on the wrong track in their 195051 season opener on their home court when they bowed to a rugged experienced and taller Middle town quintet by a 5647 score The Cedars off the track from the very outset never did get untracked completely after permitting the visitors to romp out to a commanding early lead They did flash on occasions however and enjoyed their fleeting moments in the spotlight but were virtually never in contention after yielding the visiting Blue Raiders an almost insurmountable advantage in the opening period Their principal task thereafter was to whittle away at that mammoth handicap and in that respect they succeeded suffi ciently to at least make a promising and somewhat credit able showing Taking to the court with virtually an entirely new team which included only one starting regular from last season three elevated Jayvees and a brand new sophomore the Cedars were somewhat disorganized at the start Eager Hands Reach High For Rebound The visitors with a veteran team which included two towering six footers and three first team reglars from their championship team from last season took charge of the game from the outset Their experience and height advantage plus some alert ball stealing from the unsuspecting and inexperienced Cedars enabled them to break away fast from the barrier They also set up some fast scoring plays by sharp cutting and accurate passing to run up a 206 advantage in the opening period Visitors Take Big Lead In that opening stanza Bill Doremus a rugged sixfoot one inch forward racked up seven points to lead the visiting attack while Dick Markley his running mate at forward Les Bixler a burly and towering sixfoot four inch center and Hea DoUglass a sharpshooting guard who started the scoring contributed four three and six points respectively The Cedars by comparison were limited to four foul conversions in five chances and one lone field goal a twopointer by Bob Mit chell late in the frame The locals thus found them selves completely off the track and one lineup Ehange of a complete new team something like the two platoon idea in football proved as the visitors actually cap italized on that maneuver Cedars Improve The starting Cedar quintet altered slightly by the insertion of Charley Brandt began im tracking in the second stanza and actually oufcscored the Raiders by a 128 margin in that chnkker Two field goals and a pair of foul conversions by Brandt set the local pace and Lynn Heilmans deuce and one charity chnck plus a twopoint er by Dave Moyer and a foul toss by Mitchell accounted for the local scoring Middletowns scor ing in that period was confined entirely to a second platoon sent into action by Coach John savage and the local edge en abled the Cedars to shave the Middletown lead to 2818 at halftime The third period saw the visit ing starting quintet take the up per hand again as Doremus and Bixler set the pace to show to a 139 advantage and hike their advantage to fourteen points at threequarters by a 4127 count Frank Ail Jack Wolfskin s two doublets fieid goals by Heilman and Brandt and Mitchells foul conversion ac counted for the Lebanoa points ia that period Cedars Spurt Again With the fourth period the Cedars spurted to a noticeable ex tent in outscoring the visitors by a 2015 margin but that belated effort only served to portray prom ise for the future and reduce the margin of defeat Mitchell Finds Range Mitchell found the range for three field goals in that final eightminute frame and with two fouls tabbed 8 points for the period Ail contributed five points Bob Torty racked np three and John Brucker and Jim Harris each ringed two pointers in best scoring showing of the night But Doremus and Markley oc casionally chipped in with scores to interrupt the local comeback surge and keep the visitors well in control at all times Top Scorers In the final analysis Doremus led the scoring with sixteen points as Markley and Douglass each hit double figures for the winning Mitchell topped Cedars with an even dozen markers eight in the final frame while Ail racked up eleven and Brandt contributed eight in Lebanons 195051 sea son opener the New

game the Little Cedars also took a while to get started before finally overcom ing the visiting Jayvees to post a 4641 comeback victory They trailed by a 103 margin after the first periodof play but located the comeback trail in the second period with a 208 advantage to take over a 231S halftime edge The third period saw the local understudies continue their splurge as Dick Folmer Jim Gaidos and Larry Weidman pro vided the scoring punch By post ing a 1611 advantage the local Jayvees hiked their lead to 3929 at threequarters and stood off a lastperiod rush by the visiting understudies to win out by five points to sparel Leading Scorer In Earl Anderson the visit ors presented a speedy and classy ball handler and a com ing sharpshooter who personal ly accounted for twentytwo of his teams
