High eagers a 66 to 24 setback at
Delphos Tuesday night, the third re
versal suffered this year by the
Pirates.
Bluffton’s best showing was in the
first quarter when the Pirates tai-
lied eight points, but the end of the
period found them trailing, 20 to 8,
to be hopelessly out of the running
that early in the tilt.
Halftime score was 37 to 12, and
at the close of the third period Del
phos held a 56 to 17 advantage.
Bluffton tallied only eight field
goals in the tilt, while their foes
were hitting 28 times.
In the preliminary, however, Bluff
ton reserves gained a 27 to 17 vic
tory, after leading all the way, ex
cept for the first quarter. Bauman
was high with nine points Schmidt
had seven Balmer, six,
matter, five.

In one area in the state, two or
