i CENTRAL IOWA PRODUCES SEMIFINALISTS GOLDFIELD LOSES TO GLASS B QUINT BY 22-19 SCORE River City Romps Away With Mount Ayr in 22 to 12 Cage Race. DES MOINES. March 21.--(ff) Oilman's Class B basketball team staged the first upset of the State High School tournament by fighting its way to a 22 to 19 victory over Goldfield, a Class A contender. Oilman piled up a 16 to 4 lead at half time, and just managed to stave a frenzied last half rally by r?ni«m*Oj9 . ·* ·* Goldfield. Oilman's first halt lead of 12 points proved too big for the northerners to overcome and the former crew carried the colors of class B to the semifinal round. The two 'Goldfield stars, Scott and Watt Keister, twin brothers, -ran into all sorts of hard luck. Scott got a cramp in his leg during the middle of the second period and was forced to the bench. Soon afterwards Watt went out on personal fouls. Scott got back into the game, tho, in the second half. Gilmnn's Attack Shifty. Oilman's shifty offense gave it a 16 to 4 advantage at half time, Goldfield playing as if in a daze. The haze lifted for the'boys from up north, tho and the chief haze _ lifter was Freeman. Injected in the i fray at the start of the third quar- [· ter he shot two long ones and a free f throw to whittle Oilman's lead to J, Bix points. Westerfield popped in a free throw to make the score 17 to 10 and then Agard lifted one from far out that went swish thru tho basket Westerfield counted three points as the quarter ended and Goldfield was in doldrums once more 20 to 12. S. Keister Stars. , The victors had not shot their as yet as Freeman came thru \ 'ith a short one and a followup at- .mpt that put Goldfield in the run- ng- again, four points behind. Westerfield again proved to be the slag in the Goldfield attempt as he popped In a short one. Free throws by S. Keister, Whyte and Freeman were the final scores \t the game. Altho he was held basketless, S. Keister was the shining light of the losers heroic attempt. He played all over the floor, intercepting passes and dribbling until a teammate got ·open. Freeman counted 10 points for the losers, while Westerfieia scored M2 for the winners. Gunderson and Stewart, two cool players, worked extremely well at the guards for the ' p - - .
