The tournament held in Columbia

by Eureka basketball fan<= to back
thc Lions in their super perfor
mance in the six extremely interest
ing games played. The Eureka
Lions under Coach Buckley won
the finals in 1947 bv getting on
early lead to down Libbv 48-4^
They won the hard way 'as they
had lost to Libby earlier in the
Tournament. Thev almost followed
the same procedure this year - s
they had to again take the Ion'«
way around. They were heat th^ir
first game by Whitefish Wednesday
night with a score of 24-38 From
then on it was games of elimination
in the next game Thursday after
noon, they had gotten their second
wind and settled down to wincin''
ihe tournament and to show Eur
tka and Coach Buckley what they
could do. The Lions started con
netting and swept into a lead that
won their game of elimination v/ith
Columbia Falls, bv a score of -J5
24. Friday afternoon thé Lions a
pm came out on top with a very
and extremely intereslin«
game with Libby, the score beine
28-29. Friday night the Lions plav^

cing off to a lead in the last ni. .r
ter that won them the came 27-'M
Saturday^ morning the LioTs played
a tough 7 game with Big Fork and
emerged the winner with a score
ol 36-41. Saturday night was the
big night for both the Liens and the
spectators as the Lions had already
been beaten by Whitefish earlier in
the tournament and it looked lik«
Whitefish had a sure thing. White
fish came out on the lloor a fresh
team, not having played since Fri
day night. However the ''champs"
came bounding out, determined and
prepared to hold their champion- j
ship. This was an extremely tough
game as Whitefish was the keenest
of competition. The Lions swooped
off to a flying lead and held it,
making the crowd gasp with untor
seen surprise. The Lions made
good percentage shots and used a
tight man to man defense to ad
vantage in holding the big boys
down. They showed speed and
broke fast, making a sizzling game,
ending in a score of 41-37 and still
Champions. The lineup for the
championship game: Lions—Purdy

Kusumoto 1, D. Knapton 2, Harris.
Don Trelore was Radio announcer
and also presented Trophies to the
winning teams. In presenting the
Lions with the Tournament Trophy,
Mr. Trelore emphasized the fact
that the boys played good clean
games and were the best of sports
all through the tournament. It was
announced that Duane Meuli of the
Lions was the most outstanding
player in the tournament and that
Purdy and Bright each scored 50
points for the Lions in the six
grones played. It was also announ
ced that there were approximately
