The sparcc crowd on hand for Ihe usually action-packed match-up were unimpressed to say the least as the two local rivals came up with dis- mal efforts. Both clubs seemed dis- organized for most parts of the 32-minute contest and con- tinually committed mental as well as fundamental errors. The who have yet to taste defeat in three were guilty of forcing their offensive plays on many oc- casions while the who are winless in their three seemed to be just lingering on the most part. On the the Cougars held a slim 8-6 lead after the first eight minutes of play but trailed 15-14 at the end of IB minutes. The Rams pulled ahead 25- 20 after three quarters and salted away the vicotry by outscoring the Cougars 16-13 in the final. Scott Anderson was the most impressive player dress- ed in the Rams' green and gold uniform last night although hooping only six points. The young rookie guard delivered a number of beautiful passes for key baskets and showed plenty of hustle throughout the four quarters. Ron Shemanchuk was the top scorer for the host Rams with 11 points while team- mates Rick Collier and Randy Stevens chipped in with eight apiece. John Mackley led the attack with 12 points but the players who stood-out lor the blue and white were guards Bill Dudas and Brad Peake. The two youngsters controlled the play offensively lor the Cougars during the 32 minutes snd were standouts on defence. Dudas also hit the mesh for 10 points while Guy Pomahac aided with five. In the LCT Colts made it a clean sweep for the host school as they dropped the CCHS Flyers 41- 21. Steve Olson paced the Colts with 12 points while Ryan Hayward added nine. Dave Koskoski managed a 10-point outing in a losing cause. Meanwhile in the Comets scored an 82-70 deci- sion over Calgary Viscount Bennett in an exhibition boys' basketball game last night.

HOOP SHOTS Rams1 coach Jim Whitelaw and Cougars' leader Dean couldn't be faulted for their boys' poor showing last night You really can't do anything if you haven't got a leader on the court at all times... It's early in the season yet and perhaps the two clubs will get around to playing their potential... A little' more fan support for both clubs would probably make the boys play harder and generate some excite- ment which is obviously mis- sing.
