n i t SPORTING 1 4- SINGLE POINT IN FAVOR OF LOCALS Turners Falls High Beaten in Rough and Tumble Contest VISITORS FINISH . WITH FOUR MEN Had Lead of Five Points at End of First Half Final-Score 30 to 2!) Capt. Wells Iiig Noise for IJrattleboro. Scoring 19 Toints. Brattleboro high school and Turners Falls high school basketball teams hooked up -to a real rougji and tumtdc game last night in Festival hall, the lo cal aggregation coming through the win ner SO to 2H. Roth teams started roughing it at the beginning, working to a climax in the second half, when three of the players were removed from the game for unnec essary roughness, I.rattleboro losing the services of Lynch, while Turners Falls lost J. Casey and Donovan. The second removal for Turners Falls put them in a bad way as they had only one substi tute and he was called to action when J. Casey was ordered out of the game, making it necessary for the visitors to finish the game with four men. To all appearances Brattleboro was to take their usual trimming, for the boys from Turners Falls had already taken the locals' measure once this sea son at Turners Falls and at the end of the first half the score stood 20 to 15 in favor of the visitors. Had Turners Falls paid a little more attention to the game as it should be )layed and cut out the rough playing they might have been successful again, but fouling will break up the best of teams and in this particular game had tbe ball each time he was allowed a free try the score would have been much larger. However, he proved himself to Fie pretty much the big noise by scoring 10 of his team's 'M points, ' getting live double-deckers- .from the floor and caging Che ball nine times on free tries. Coining back to start the second half on the short end of the score Brattleboro started "out to catch up by registering two double counters while Turners Falls was collecting one. "Wells then dropped two in on free trials, which was fol lowed by n goal by himself and one by Moran, putting their team in the lead by three points. II. Casey and Las koski for Turner Falls then came through with double-deckers, but Wells tied the count at -0 by making good on a free trv. Nixon put his team in the lead again by shooting one into the net. I.askoski added one ioint with a free try and Wells again made good on two free tries, winding up the scoring for Brattleboro. I. askoski again made the local sup porters nervous by dropping one into the hoop which proved to be the last of the game, following one short of Bral tleloro"s total. II. Casey and Laskoski were the big point getters for Turners Falls, the for mer throwing four double counters, while the hitter irot six and one from a foul. B. II. S's future basketball material was displayed as a preliminary to the big show. A team representing the juniors, made up of some of the lads wh: have been tring for the first team, were shown up by the freshmen to the tune of 11 to 7. While this is a big joke on the juniors it is no joke when it shows what material Coach Stolte is going to have to work with another season. The sum mary : BRATTLFBOIiO HIGH.
