Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Ortar Rapid* Gazettf: Sat., Mar. 9, 1974    7Williamsburg Ousted; Postville, Miles Advance LaPorte City Topples Raiders in Overtime 69-66 Ny .Jack Ogden Executive Sport* Editor FANS FLOODED the Washington high school floor Friday night and cheered as Laporte City players cut down the baskets at both ends of the court. They were celebrating an exciting t>9-(>(> overtime victory over Williamsburg that brought the Rams a district basketball trophy and moved them to with-1 in a game of the class A state tournament field. “No,” admitted a pleased Laporte Coach Phil Johnson, “We haven't had to come from t>ehind very often this year. Rut Williamsburg is a fine team, and the way we came back shows the character of this club. “It is really a team. Bob Higgle is our leading scorer with a 13 plus average, and our No. 5 scorer is Bob Craft, with a 9.8 average. That balance has been the key to our season.” It was more than balance. Higgle has not been outstanding at the free throw line, but he came up with a clutch overtime performance, hitting three of four late in the overtime to ice the game after four points by Tom Marshall had produced a 6G-62 lead. “Higgle is still a clutch player. There is no one we’d rather have come up in that position,” said Johnson. Williamsburg Coach Bill Neal was far from disappointed, despite the loss by his young squad. “We won ll out of our last 13,” he explained, “and we have three juniors starting.” Neal admitted that turnovers, 28 of them for the Raiders, were probably the big factor in the district loss after his club had led most of the way. “We averaged only 8 or 9 a game during the regular season,” he explained. “But we have been in the 20s several times in the tournaments. “And Laporte has the most physical team we’ve seen.” That was about the case as Williamsburg jumped off to early leads of 7-2 and 19-12 and was ahead at the quarter mark, 21-16. It was 35-28 at halftime as little Joe Petz put on a spectacular outside shooting show with six for nine in the first two periods. He shared scoring honors with tall Steve Glandorf. Each had 19. Laporte didn’t catch up until just nine seconds remained in the third period when Craft tied the game at 48. It was nip-and-tuck from then on, with both teams holding brief leads. Mark Armstrong hit with 1:33 left to tie it at 62. Creed's 72 Takes Ladies' PGA Lead HOUSTON (AP) — Clifford Ann Creed, who hasn’t won a tournament since 1967, battled through wind and rain for a one-under-par 72 Friday and took the first-round lead in the $100,000 Ladies’ PCA Tournament. Kathy Whitworth, the all-time leading money winner on the women’s pro golf tour, missed a chance to tie for the lead when she bogeyed the final hole and finished with a par 73 over the 6,371-yard Westwood Country Club course. Five other golfers were tied; with Mrs. Whitworth for second place. They were Roberta Albers, Sandra Post, Debbie Austin, Margie Masters and Maria Astrologes. Pam Higgins, who had the low nine-hole score of the day with a three-under 34 on the back side, had her troubles on the front nine and finished in a tie at 74 with Bonnie Bryant, Sandra Spuzich, Sandra Palmer, JoAnn Prentice and Jane Blalock. Poor greens, burned earlier in the week when ground-skeepers applied the wrong fertilizer, created challenging putting conditions. Miss Creed, formerly of Lamar University in Beaumont, Tex., said many of her birdie putts ended in pars because of the greens. “You just try to aim it close to the hole and settle for a par,” she said. “I don’t mind playing in the wind,” Miss Creed said. “It just wears you out, that’s all. I just tried to play my regular game and allow a little bit for the wind.” Pirates Avenge 2 Losses Mf.
