ta'nly done all that he could to lead
the team to victory. He has been a
member of the team for the past four

clever players and have shown theni
selves such in the games they have
played during the season.

and clinched; on the breakaway Kelly
got in an uppercut which sent Cooley
to the floor for nine counts. Kelly
