Observation Post BY STAN PAKULA Sport* Editor Reflections and Resolutions In a coup le of days . l!)\ .!i will slip into the history reserved for such expired calendar ' events. But the passing of old T>!) represents lvoieb nunc than the loss of a vear and the arrival of another. When 1950 exits tomorrow at midnig ht , it will mark the end of a decade ol mil standing spoils happenings. . The sports beat th.ougli the past 10 years has been an eventlul one for the major spurts interests. Baseball broug ht new cities into the majors and ' stalled talks of another major league. Professional football broke records not only in attendance , but also in thril ls and excitement. Basketball moved up and down -bitting the lowest ebb with the pidnt shaving scandals and moving back with the event of Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain which started revolutionizing the sport. Hockey ' s scene saw the JU'troit Red Wings give way to the Mon- t real Canadiens as the kings of the ice links and the diehard New York Ranger fans still packed into the (kirden to see the woeful , blue- shirts. Boxing sli pped further and further down as disclosures of gambling influences rocked the fans and sport with more devastation than a Marciano right. New horse racing tracks opened and harness racing became the evening p leasure of manv tired uersons. Tennis fortunes slumped Stan Pakula as the United States appeared consistent also- rans in Davis Cup competition. And along with the national transition of sports , county and local teams also became victims of the ever-present changing times. New teams developed in many sports that had been dormant for a score of years. New schools cropped up, enrollments increased and competition became hot ami heavy. The local athletic portrait had its blots and smudges and area athletes began spotting the national picture ii college sports and one fellow is presently on the threshold of making the major leagues in baseball. Bowling alloys cropped up with rapidity making strikes and spares household words and the lanes social meeting places. Golf became less of a rich man ' s pastime and more of u popular weekend sport than ever before . Boat- ing, yachting and fishing \ were on the upswing and bunting took its niche \ among the sports lovers. Skiing and winter frolicking were accepted as winter vacations became more in vogue. The entire sports-participating p icture changed and mo'e was promised for the next 10 years. Hut what about the next decade ? Look for more schools fielding teams and the balance of athletic power changing once again. Look for ditfeient sports entering the picture for active sports fans and change of habits of the regular sports programs at high schools. Look for more arena-type stadia as population growth will bi ing more citified tastes ami the need for big time sporting events out on the Island. Look, for taller bas- ketball p layers on high school teams as the necessity for the little man will decrease and the colleges and pros will be craving for the giants. Look for major league sports to find homes on the Island as Long Island will be one of the few untapped geographical sites around the country. Look for bigger and better sports fields and gyms at the high ' schools. Look for a change from the T-formation iri football and the raising of the nets nnd backboards in basketball . Look for the return of pitching battles in baseball and more than one pitcher on high school squads. Look for track and tennis inter- est to p ick up as the country will be out to raise athletic standards . Look for hockey p laying to become popular on Long Island and look for an increase in summer spectator sports . And now for the resolutions of a sports editor: Resolve to write columns earlier and sharper. Resolve to see more area teams play. Resolve to have another picture taken. Resolve to improve my bowling score, golf score and renew my interest, in walking. Hesolve 1o buy golf shoes. Resolve to play Slo-Ball with a team that goes all the way. Resolve to see more club baseball games. Resolve to get ovei seasickness . Resolve to stop yelling at umpires and officials. Resolve to discontinue partisanship while representing the press at ballgames. Resolve to start, the new year of? right. Resolve to wish all of the fans , p layers and coaches a - - - HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAH! ^iSIIEEKSS^^ElSSSSZSSs h^i fsoBQV I DON'T Ifl T DON'T WORRY , POP- 1 fwHEN CHANGES FOR I I HAVE A D1K/IF JH YOU'RE QOmO TO THE BETTER ARE I -- * - PI M& ' JBA HAVE ONE HUNDRED THOUGHT OF K UKIV tK.

Bell port got off to a fly ing start defeating Sachem 52-45 in the opening game of the season. After that though , the Clippers lost four stiaight to Patchogue , East Islip, Center Moriches and Isli p. Bell port ' s main problem so far has been to sustain a good 'team offense throughout the entire game. Most of Bell port' s offense has been provided by Bob Hoffmann. The Clipper forward has tallied 94 points in five games for an 18.8 average per game. The other steady Cli pper scorer has been backcourt man Fred Cherry who has tallied 66 points for a 13.2 per game average. The remainder of the team hasn 't provided enough scoring punch to give Bell port a winning offense. On offense the Clippers have averaged 46.6 points per game while allowing the op- position to average 5(1.4 points. In its league games against East Islip and Islip, Bell port has had trouble getting off to a good start. Against East Isli p the Cli p- pers scored only three points in the first quarter and managed to net a mere seven against Islip in the opening stanza. In each case , the opposition took an early lead which it never relinquished. Another Clipper weakness has been rebounding. Lacking overall team height, the squad relies on Center Art Wilm for most of the backboard work. The defensive- boards haven 't presented much of a problem for the Clippers . It has been on offense that the team lacks rebounding strength. Under the offensive board , Bellport has a hard time getting good position. As a result , the Clippers are often limited to one shot at a time. If Bellport wishes to reverse its form in the second half of the season , the team will have to strengthen its rebounding and de- velop a stronger scoring punch to supp lement Hoffmann anil Cherry. Seto n Hall , Patchogue High , Bellport HS C rowns Top '59 Since 1 959 has a little less than 48 hours of life remaining, most sports fans will probabl y stop and ask , \What kind of year has it been? \ It has been a year that has seen Seton Hall emerge as Catholic Hi g h School baseball champions and Inter-State football kings ; a year that saw Patchogue Hig h, cop the A-2 baseball title and Bell port High , frustrated in baseball b y Kings Park , take the Class B-l harrier title and cop class B honors for the second strai g ht sea- son and a year that a new coach , Joe A gostinello , took over the reins of the Raide r gridders. It has been a year in which Carl Yastrz ' cmski , Jr., was voted the most valuable player in the Raleigh league and appeared a good bet on making the Boston Red Sox within the next two years. It has been a vear that saw William F. (Dutch) Schuldt re- tire from coaching football at Patchogue High to remain as baseball mentor and hope to grab the elusive Class A crown that eluded him and the Raideis last year. It has been a year in which the Patchogue Soccer club again copped the Jospe cup. It has been a year in which former Pa tchogue High Athletic Director Carl Olson accepted a post in the East Meadow school system. It has been a year in which stock car racing fans had two J O K IIoilI, . . . set Raider track mark separatel y owned tracks — River- head and Islip — and enjoyed a banner year. It was a year in which Roger Bailey ' s career was put in jeop- ardy b y an auto racing accident. It was a year that saw the spectator habits of sports fans change with the arrival of (he Long Island Rovers and the new- ly-created Long Island Arena with the promise of bigger and better sports events in the future. It was a year in which Bill Lundberg maintained his edge as a top cross country runner; Joe Hodl set a Raider tiack mark; Gene Stap leton and Al Hopf were outstanding on the hill for Seton Hall and Patchogue; Charlie Hunt , Paul Coslello and Bob Hoffmann were top cagers; the Patchogue Rookies entered the Suffolk County Baseball league and the A&P Masons took the Businessmen ' s Softball crown for the second straight year , and par- ticipated in the Suffolk County A m e r i c a n Softball association p layoffs . It was a year of frustration and accomplishment. It was a year that will soon be forgotten as the battalions of sports aggregations gird for KJfiO with desire and hope for a shiny future.

Not participating in any holiday tournaments , the Red Raiders will not be back in action until January 8. On that date , the locals will face North Babylon en the latter ' s hardwood. It was the fifth loss of the sea- sou for the charges of Coach Cliff Ross who have won two games this season. The loss was a bitter pill to swallow for the Raiders. With approximatel y three minutes to go , the locals lagged 52-43 but started an up hill battle which tied the score to send the game into overtime. Two free throws by Dean Cham- berlain p lus consecutive baskets by Dan Derby, Chamberlain and Phil Orosz brought the Rossmen within one. Then with 1:40 left on the clock , Paul Ruehl stepped to the foul line and sank one of two free throws to tie the score at 52-52. Seconds later , a layup by hard driving Bob Van Roch put the Bucs ahead bv two again. Two muffed foul shots , one by Walt Werbinski with 50 seconds left and another by Tom Morris with 30 seconds remaining deprived Islip from clinching ¦ the contest. these missed shots proved im- portant late r as a pair b y Derby of the Raiders tied the count at 54-54 as * 20 seconds remained in the game. Isli p called time out to set up for the game ' s last shot. The Bucs got it off with 10 seconds to go as John Burt' s jump shot tickled the twines. Patchogue hurried down court as the clock ticked off the precious seconds. Three seconds remained when a jumper by Chamberlain found the range forcing the game into overtime. In the extra session , Isli p got the tap and went into a weave waiting for one good shot. But at the 45-second mark , Chamber- lain fouled Warren Muth with the latter getting a chance to put his team ahead. It was also Chamberlain ' s fifth personal foul. His departure along with Ray Weeks , who departed via the foul route early in the final quarter , hurt the Raiders dearly especiall y under the boards and in the shooting department. For when Muth missed the foul shot , Islip ' s Morris was. - ' there- \ to grab the rebound. Once more , the forces of coach John Veryzer went into their weave. Then with the clock showing 1:25 , a jump shot by Morris was successful to put Islip ahead for good. Patchogue ' s attempt to tie fizzled as two shots failed to find its mark. Islip attemp ted to freeze the hall for the remaining 60 seconds. But a violation gave the ball over to the Raiders with 30 seconds left. The Rossmen did not have pos- session very long as a backcourt violation gave the Bucs possession once more. This time the B-l representatives held it as the buzzer sounded seconds later. Fighting back from a 23-22 halftime deficit , Isli p could have won the game in regulation time . But the Bucs sank only two fouls in the final Hi minutes which the Raiders capitalized on. With Burt swishing five baskets and Van Roch three more, the home team held a 45-41 lead at the end of the third period. For the first three minutes of the quarter , it was all Patchogue. Sparked by the shooting of Weeks and Orosz , the Raiders moved to a 28-22 lead. Islip starte d to fight back and went ahead 30-29 on a backhanded layup by Morris. Then for the next coup le of moments , both schools went at it like tooth and nail as the bi ggest lead was onl y two points. But the Bucs with Burt scoring eight of his team ' s next points , bolted to a 43-36 lead as less than two minutes remained. Holding their opponents score- less , while two foul shots by Ruehl , another by Derby and a basket by Chamberlain , the Raiders made it , 43-41 , before a last second basket by Morris broke the famine for the home team. Islip started the game like a house afire as the Bucs raced to an 8-0 lead in the first three minutes. Chamberlain ' s jump shot finall y put the Raiders on the scoreboard at the 4:35 mark. This basket touched off a Pat- chogue comeback which tied the score at 8-8 on a long jump shot by Weeks. But a basket by Van Roch in the closing seconds gave the B-l school the lead at the quarter ' s end. The two schools battled through four deadlocks in the second quar- ter. It was a 22-22 score when the buzzer sounded ending the first half. But a Islip foul sent Chamberlain to the foul line where he converted one of two free throws to put the Raiders ahead at the intermission. Patchogue shooting was a so-so 20 for 55 from the field and 16 of ' \14 from the free throw line. The Bucs made 25 of 56 from the floor but were very poor from the gratis stripe hitting onl y 8 for 26. Patchogue (56) !

The first Quarter was a see-saw battle all the way, with the lead changing hands several times. The Redmen took an early 6-2 lead after two minutes or play but could not hold the Eagles in check. Two quick buckets by Bill Neuss and Larry Ratferty knotted the count and a free throw by i5ernie Higgins put the Eagles one up. Coach Bob Cooney ' s Silver and Blue chargers , led by Neuss ' re- bounding and six points pulled to a close lfi-15 lead and were never to be headed the rest of the way. Ron Bardonek hit for seven points to lead the first period scoring and kept coach Mike Durso ' s Redmen within reach of the Eagles. The Eagles surged in the second quarter , penetrating the East Isli p man to man defense for 13 points.
