Tuesday night and the Beavers w’ere
nosed out by Findlay college Oilers,
44 to 43, in a thrilling tilt Tues
day night in Findlay.
Except for a letdown midway thru
the first half in which the Findlay
team ran up a 10-point lead, the
Bluffton team carried the advant
age of play all the way, but that
margin eventually proved just suffi
cient for the Oilers to squeeze thru
At halftime, Coach Zimmerman’s
crew trailed 25 to 17, but from that
time the Beaver sharp-shooters
steadily whittled away at the ad
vantage and the job they did was so
good that it was anybody’s ball
game until the closing gun.
I Twice the Beavers trailed by only
one point in the closing minutes, and
twice Findlay again pulled away.
I will be at the Alice Beauty Shop in
Findlay and will appreciate your con

try -went wide as the gun cracked.
