The unheralded Dillon, unseeded because of a 1-4 record, By FRED KAVELAK Progress Sports Editor STATE COLLEGE - Philipsburg-Osceola Area High's Mounties stole the spotlight in the first two rounds of the District 6 Section II Wrestling Tournament but wound up playing second fiddle to Bald Eagle Area in the finals Saturday night "at the State College High School gym. Seven of (Joach Chuck Goldthonp's proteges reached the third session but only 103-pounder Bob Rothrock aid 133-tpounder Bob Dillion - two of the three champs who weren't top-seeded - earned championships and tickets to the district tourney set for Saturday at Altoona. A trip of BEA mat men - 112-pounder Bob Packer, 120-pounder Boyd Brower and 165- potinder Bob Stonebraker - survived the eight-team,. two-day tourney which attracted three near - capacity crowds, while State College matched Philipsburg - Osceola's two winners with 95-pounder Dave Weber and heavyweight Dave Joyner. Each of the other schools had one champion. They were Don Folmar of West Branch at 180, Jack Hopkins of Moshannon Valley at 127, Rick Grice of Mount Union at 138, Bill Rhodes of Huntingdon at 145 and Jim Torsell of Bellefonte at 154. Hopkins was the other winner who wasn't first-seeded. . While the finals proved disastrous for the Mounties, the semi-finals were equally fatal for the Black Knights of Moshannon Valley and the Warriors of West Branch. Only three of nine Black Knights won in the afternoon. And Folmar was the lone Warrior of a half dozen first round victors who triumphed again in the semis Weber pinned Philipsburg- Osceola's Ed Williams in 2:30 for the 85-pound title. The de fending regional champ, a Lit tie Lion junior, was a takedown victim but' reversed and added a near fall and upped his led to 7-3 before the second period .pin.

Rothrock, a fourth seed, scored a reversal, near fall and time against Simpson, who slipped past BEA's Harry Baney, 5-4 on riding time, in the semis. I said, "Show me a filter cigarette that really delivers taste and I'll eat my hat!" captured the fancy of the crowds with an uphill struggle to the 133-pbund throne that counted Mt. Union's Bob Rogers, State's Harry Holsinger and Mo Valley's Jack Radomsky as his victims. He cradled Holsinger in 3:29 and Radom-sky in 1:27 of overtime after a 4-4 tie on Saturday. Both had beaten him in dual meets. He reversed Radomsky twice in the regulation match while the Black Knight junior, who ousted West.Branch's Emery Petrof by 6-2 in the semis, had a takedown and reversal. A pair of third period predicaments' and riding time made Grice a 6-3 winner against Dennis Murawski of Moshannon Valley at 138. There was no scoring in the first period but Murawski had a second period takedown for a short-lived 2-edge. He had upset State's Jim Lower, 13-11, in a wild semi-fi nal bout in which Lower bridged the entire first period and came out trailing only 5-0. Riding time decided the outcome after each boy had a pair of predica ments in a furious third stanza Grice also needed riding time to nip John Fornicola of Belle fonte, 9-8.

Baker and John Sheroke of West Branch were 5-5 after one period in their semi-final bout but Baker had an escape and another takedown before the second period fall. Folmar became West Branch's first sectional champ by pinning Gary Heverly of BEA in 3:11 and then outhus-tling Joe Loner of Mount Union, 6-3. Folmar, who beat Loner by 9-0 two weeks ago, had a takedown and predicament in the second. Both area heavyweights gave away too much weight to create much opposition for Joyner and George Bush of BEA in the semi-finals. Joyner blanked West Branch's Don Yontosh, who is under 170 pounds, 6-0, STRAINING WARRIOR Emery Petrof sits out against Jack Radomsky of Moshannon Valley, but the West Branch 133-pounder's move was countered by Radomsky, who won 6-2 in the semi-finals of the District 6 Section II Tournament at State College Saturday.
