GOSNELL entertained the SOUTH PEMISCOT HIGH SCHOOL Bulldogs and trimmed their guests 63-55. "It was without a doubt our finest game of the season," Coach Quitman SuHins said last night, no small statement from a man whose Pirates have registered 13 wins in 15 tries. "We beat a real good ball club, but it took a second, third and fourth effort from our -men to do it. I'm extremely proud of the way that gave the extra effort. "I'm proud too of the excellent free-throw shooting we continue to do, we hit for 90 percent of our foul shots tonight." The Bulldogs, on a win streak of their own coming into the contest, moved out to a first period lead, 16-12. Lanny Tyler, whom Sullins described as "the best outside shooter I've seen all year," led the attack as his one-handers found their mark. The Pirates fought back with 18 points in the next eight minutes to take the lead and hold a 30-26 halftime margin. Cliff Parrot and Eddie Williams contributed several points of their high-game totals. South Pemiscot narrowed the fourrpoint'gap in the third quarter. The Bulldogs netted 16 counters while Gosnell dropped in 13, the Pirates leading after three quarters, 43-42. A 20-point outburst in the final eight minutes sealed the win for the Pirates, the Bulldogs able to net only. 13 in the same • time stretch. Parrot led both teams with 29 points while.

"I was pretty well pleased with the ball game, we tried to play a slow, deliberate type of game to get that win."

Bass reported that the visitors led 41-31 at the half and his squad caught up only in the final period. "Dell led by one point with 10 seconds left, but Leon Lewis hit a jump shot to put Armorel ahead -by one. They got one more shot but it missed and Lewis grabbed the rebound and we held the ball for the final three or four seconds," Bass said.
