Toledo '6' Wins
To Tie Mansfield
In M-0 League

Underdogs Defeat
Windtor in Overtime
With 9 Seconds Left
Detroit’s Mansfields today are In
imminent danger of losing their
hold on the third rung of the
Michigan-Ontario Hockey League
They lost part of It last night
when the Toledo Babcocks came
from behind to take a 5-4 over
time decision from the champion
Windsor Spitfires across the river
before a slim pre-Christmas crowd
of 1,900. The victory put the
Babcocks even with the Mansfields
on points, with the equivalent of
three two-point games yet to play.
Toledo’s marksmen showed a
high percentage of efficiency in
achieving last night’s victory, one
of the few upsets of the current
M-O season. During the last half
hour they had only five shots on
the Windsor goal, but three of
them found their mark.
Two of the three were 25-foot
low angle shots by Don Olsen,
sturdy little blond right-winger.
They vvere the ones that tied and
won the game after Windsor twice
had tw’o-goal advantages. Second
and most important of Olsen’s
shots rame just nine seconds be
fore the end of overtime.
Toledo, stall building, showed up
with additional reinforcements in
the persons of two former Wind
sor players, center Bert Tooke.

Stover. Click.v Fau r 1 a and

It’s Matter of Inehes
Eagles Are Shy Them and They're 'Just a Good
Team' Instead of a Brilliant One
That old argument about]
whether a good little man is better
than a big man in basketball en
ters into the picture when con-]
sidering the Detroit Eagles' record
on their long road trip.
With the Eagles it has meant
the difference between a brilliant,
championship team and just a
"good” team. The present squad
is hampered by lack of height—
compared to other top pro teams.
Last year’s ‘ miracle” team that
finished third in the National
League, but went on to whip Osh
kosh. the league winner, and all
of the country's other strong teams
in the Chicago tourney, was built
around the 6-foot-6-inch Ed Sa
dow-ski. Ed. as you know, now is
in the army.
The good “little” man this sea
son is Jack Ahearn. Jack, the
former St. John’s U. player, is very
familiar with coach Dutch Deh
nert’s pivot system and is an ex
cellent shot, but stands only
six-foot-one. The 5-inch difference
means a lot.
The Eagles consist of Ed Parry,
Harry Jeannette and Ahearn. all
of whom fans will remember from
last year; Paul \V*!dowitz and Lou
Kasperik, stars from Duquesne,
and Press Maravich. former Davis-
Elkins College high-scorer. Deh
nert signed the Aliquippa, Pa., boy
on the Eagles’ recent eastern tour.
All are about 6 feet in height.
That six-man squad has piled up
a winning record, but except for
four consecutive victories over the
clever Haripm Globe Trotters,
they have not beaten a strong pro
The loss to Indianapolis Tues
day was no reflection on their
ability. The Kautskys have the
great Jewell Young, Bob Dietz.
Johnny Townsend, no less. They're
a power in the National League
this year.
Dehnert has been trying to
obtain the sendees of George Glo
mack, Akron Goodyear’s 6-foot-5-
inch star, but has been unsuccess
