Dave’s second shot was a wide-open snow shot that caught Boonville napping on a full-court press. Tom Lant for the Knights was high with 14. Besting for Boonville as Randy Silke with 25.

Dale needed an extra period to accomplish their win over the Princeton Tigers in the Thursday nightcap. Ron Estes went high in the air with a 15ft. jumper with 42 seconds remaining in or with 42 seconds remaining in the overtime to win the game for his mates. Princeton’s Dan Freeman had knotted the game at 44-44 with about 1 1/4 minutes remaining but Dale could not sue the time to their advantage and pushed the game into an overmatched scoring paces for the Aces with 11 each.

In the consolation game Friday night, Boonville again was the Princeton Tigers managed their first win of the season with a decisive win over the Pioneers 70-57. This win was accomplished by a 36 point effort of Princeton’s Rich Pritchett. Silke for the losers scored 18 as their best effort of the game.

In the championship action Dale took no chances with Castle as they screeched to an early lead and held that lead throughout the match. Castle pulled to within 13 late in the third period, but could get no closer to the victory-minded Aces who margin. Dave Espenlaub was tops for the Knights with 17 markers, For the winning Aces it was Ron Estes for 19, Gene Simpson with 17 and Wayne Stroud with 16.
