A 3-point play by ailing Handy Myers cut the Cougars' lead to 54-51 with to go, and Terry Feye's free throw trimmed it to one, Cl-60, with just left. But then Craig Enrighl, who hit 27 for the winners, cashed in on a pair, Randy Reinhold drove for another, young Jeff EUenne added one and Steve Schnoebelcn added a basket as Kennedy broke away for the win. "Our inexperience hurt admitted Kennedy Coach Dave Etienne. "We forced some shots early and didn't handle their press as well as we could have. "But I'm sure pleased with what our kids did down the stretch. Even when it got close, they weren't afraid to shoot and everyone came through when we needed it." Etienne was particularly pleased with Enright's play, and impressed with Mike Dohnalek, one of three, return- ing Prairie starters, who led the Hawks with 20. Prairie coach Laverne Bruns was disappointed with the outcome, but pleased with his club's rally. "I was happy about the way we came back after a poor he explained. "Poor shots and missed free throws hurt us in the first half. "But, we showed enough to indicate we can have a pretty fair club if we iron out our mistakes." Bruns disclosed that Myers, who hit a couple of key has- kets in the fourth quarter surge, was handicapped with a sprained ankle. He ended up with 11 points while Feye had 16. Schnoebelen, Reinhold and Etienne were all in double fig- ures for the Cougars. Prairie Mike Dohnalek 12 2-4 26, Randy Myers 5 1-1 II, Terrv Feyo 5 6-12 16.

"I thought we played a half of the besl defense I've seen in three years." Jeff's tenaclty-a dogging man la man defense-add 14 points apiece by Dean Uthoff and Al Selinger keyed a 38-H advantage at Intermission. Time and time again the young Ottumwa team turned (he ball over (11 turnovers in the fist while their accuracy from the- field left much to be desired. While Jeff was connecting on 15 .of 40 field goal attempts, Ottumwa managed only four of 25 in the first 16 minutes. "There was a reason for Williams said of 01- lumwa's poor percentage. "It wasn't jusl poor shooling-we weren't letting them get good shots." The second half was some- thing else. Oltumwa perked up to oulscore Jeff 46-38 and improved its shooting per- centage to a final 28 percenl to Jeff's 39, but the action for the most part was sloppy. Jeff finished with 30 turnovers lo Ollumwa's 29. Both clubs commitled 27 fouls. "Exhaustion and careless- ness hurt us In the second Williams allowed. "Our kids were tired after that first half. They worked awfully hard and that first-half effort won the game for us. "I think their turnovers hurl them more than ours hurl us because we could play defense when we had lo." Ulhoff, the 6-10 junior cen- ter, led all scorers with 24 points. Selinger, a 6-5 senior forward, was close behind with 18 and senior guard Scott Bruzek added 10.
