Ohio County Defeats Tate County, Score 85-83 Ohio County improved its record Friday night to 15-2 in an 85-83 decision over Lexington Tales Creek. The two teams went into the game with the Eagles ranking 21st in the latest Associated Press poll and the Commodores just one notch hack in 22nd place. The biggest margin in the game was six points, an advantage the Eagles en- joyed at 32-26 with five minutes left in the first half. Tates Creek was on top four occasions at 10-6 and 16-12 midway in the first half and 75-71 and 77-33 half way through the final quarter. Other than that the score was tied 11 times and the lead changed hands a total of 27 times in the game. Although he scored only 11 points in the game, Gary Raymond, was one of the Eagles best advantages during the game. After scoring only three points in the first 25 minutes of play Raymond took charge when the visitors threaten- ed to pull away in the fourth period. With the Commo- dores leading 72-69, Ray- mend canned a 10-footer, Tates Creek then brought the lead 75-71, but he drill- ed one in from 20 feet. And then after Tates Creek's Craig Willie brought the lead back to four points, Raymond cashed three straight free throws to pull Ohio County within only 77-76 with exactly four minutes left. Jim White then got the two foul shots that gave remaining, and Taylor widened the lead to three and Raymond came back with another charity toss that gave the Eagles a 4 point lead. But the Commodores again tied the score with a basket and two free throws with 41 seconds left. Taylor then hit from 10 feet to give the Eagles the lead for good. Russell then sewed it up when he got two foul shots to make it 85-81 with 15 seconds left before Tates Creek bagged two charity shots at the the Eagles a lead with 2:48 finish. Parker was the big man for the Eagles in the first half, hitting nine of 17 shots and got 20 points. He got ten each period as the Eagles led by one at each break. Taylor turned on in the third quarter, hitting five of seven from the field and three of four foul shots. In one three minute span he accounted for 10 of 12 Ohio County points. Because of Tates Creek height advantage, Ohio County had to get the most of their zone press to over- come a deciding rebounding edge, they forced the Fayette Countians into 19 floor errors, seven of them coming in the crucial fourth quarter. The Commodores outrebounded the Eagles 37-22. Parker finished with 28 points, Taylor had 27, Snodgrass 12 and Raymond 11.
