FRIKN'I) The ttiylljevllle Clucks sained partial rcvfngc lor llicir two dp- feats Hi Monelle by Irimmlns ihft Buffaloes. 32-29; here Insl night, despite Hie absence of two regulars. Playing without the .services of "Wild Bill" Godwin, ccnlcr and the team's leading scorer, and Tommy Warring ton. guard, the Tribe gained a halfttme one point lead, pushed forward with a brllliunl offensive and then staved off a final Monctle threat to win mi .icllon-niletl thriller that kept the fairly large crowd on wlye Ihroiighoul. when the final whistle sounded the fans gave vent to their penned nj> feelings and let forth a thunderous applause that [airly rocked llio nn llona) guard unnory. Subs Shim 1 Every member of the chicks deserve a word of praise for the!'' maenlficcnt display of light and courage. They buttled agaln-sl superior odds and by slicer (tctermlnx- tlon bested, u superior team. But they deserved to win and the victory was a glorious one. Special mention is due the three .substitutes. Herb "Cne Ball" Childs. Hugh "Tex" Htii'bei'l, and lanky Jack Jenkins. Filling in for the nlllng Godwin and absent Wnnington, these youngsters held up under flrt 1 and the terrific pressure of the torrid battle and enme through with (Ivlng colors. Childs flipped in tiv» field goals in the first half- to keep the Tribe abreast with the slmrp- shootliig Buffs and nddeil nn extra free throw in the last half—more points than he has scored all your. After an unsteady start Hnrtjerl settled down on his return to the lineup and played a whale of a ball •game defensively and his three points alrted no little In the nun) outcome. He went o\il on fouls early in the fourth quarter and was relieved by Jenkins. He kept up the good work and provided a last mln ute field goal—a beautiful shot, while going away—to clinch the game He came near gumming up the Stuttgart's "works" a short tilne before, how- boxing team, ever. by v making a bad pass will 1 a little more than a minute to piny with the chicks out in front b; only one point. But the reliable Russell Mosley levied high Into the air to Intercept a pass Intended fo nn "'enemy" under his own basket Three passes got the ball to Jen kins. He dribbled twice llien sbovci the .sphere toward the hoop. It hi the backboard and dropped througl the net for a perfect shot. Regulars Score .The regulars. Danny Warringlon, Carl Hughes and Mosley carried on in gi'eat style with an inspired brand of ball, nnd provided the most scoring punch, as was naturally expected. Danny Waning Ion scored eleven points, one less than Monette's Bill Adams and Amos Hamilton \vho were tied for first plnce with a dozen tallies apiece. Mosley was hot on their heels with nine. Hughes' tally card showed but a Vn« neid soal but his great work , Is best revealed by the fact that he held the great Bunt Reed. crncV. center, to no goals from the floor and a foul throw—an excellent feat in itself. It was the first time this year in 35 games that Reed has failed' to score from the floor Brother Paul didn't en]oy his usual scoring feast, either, thanks to the efficient wort: of Mosley. His four points was a new season low for liim. too. Hamilton stale the show from his hi?lilv tmblicized males with hU fine all round work. The game was a uip and luck affair all the <rav. The lead alternated back antl forth with neither team enjoying more than five points at any time, except the first fen minutes uhen the Buffs rolled up 1VW&V WE DINHE.R CHECK.
