PAGE S-VACGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), WEDNESDAY, DEC. 28, 1949 Wilbur Cross Quintet Favored To Hand Garnet Fifth Defeat Cover Girls' Star Quintets Collide Tonight At Waterbury Armory Coach George F. Good-win's Naugatuck Hig-h school Greyhounds, more impressive in their 52-49 defeat at the hands of the Ahimni Monday evening than at any time previous this season will take the floor against a stron? Wilbur Cross quintet, of New Haven, tonight, in hopes of their second victory of the season. The game will be played at the Waterbury Armory The Garnet and Grey combine overcame an e-igrht-ipoint half-time deflcit to takp the lend against the N.H.S. grads in Monday's annual battle, only to fall victim to a counter ralry in the final 40 second*. The Matca twins, Billy and Manny, and. Bob "Red" White were outstanding- for the Hig-h school clu*. with Manny pacing the late rally which almost brought victory out to defeat It is probable that Coach Good will shake up his lineup again tonight so that the Matos twins will be among the (starting five. With the exception of White, the other starters iire in doubt. Weakest point in the lineup at present appears to be the pivot spot. Goodwin has started three different youths at center—Bob Siuzdak, John Goggtn and Jack Knapp—but still can't i?eem to find the proper man for the position. Cross will field a fast, rangy squad which will be out to avenge a surprise beating administered iast year. ^Prment indications are that they >will win handily. N-a.uga.tuck has now won only one game in five starts. After bowing to Trinity Boy's Club in the opener. 42-35, the locals bounced Jjack to rout Junior Republic. 75-37, but since then have lost to Wilby 52-34. Hillhouse, 48-24 and the Alumni. The Elm City crew should be able to make it four straight defeats The junior varsities will collide m a preliminary game at 7:30 i clock, with the main event slated for 8:45 o'clock. Two Local Youths Members Of Emerson College Quintet , Ken Romanoff and Frank Berber, both of Unios City, are meM- ber?;pf the Emerson College basketball team, wfiieh wiH appear in Wa.terb.ury on Jan. 12, in a game ••rth the Waterhury extension of the -University of Connecticut. Frank-has been a forward on the Boston quintet for the past three seasons. Romanoff, a freshman at the school, is enjoying his first seoson with the Emerso'n flve. Another Connecticut boy Jack ' Weir of Litchfleld, who" played formerly with Cheshire Academy •ml) appear with the Emei^on Risdon, Chemical Favored In Dusty League Tilts Tonight U. S.. Rubber will be ba'ttl'rigr 10 throw the first round of the Dusty Basketball League into a three-way tie tonight, when it takes on Risdon's classy quintet in the opener of the Dusty program tonight at 7:30 o'clock on the YMCA -ourt. Rubber is now in second place in the standings, a game behind Risdon, witn two wins in three tilts. Risdon has a 3-0 record. A win for Rubber would deadlock the teams and Chemical, which al=6 has a 2-1 record, would probably join them, for the Chemists are playing Glass tonight and should win without too much trouble. The Kedsmen, who for a number of years had monop(Hized local Industrial sports, had that mo- op- oly broken last year, when they finished behind Chemical and Risdon in basketball, behind Chrmi- i.-al in bowling and behind RisHon in softball. They realize their hold on the top spot locally is slipping, and they are fighting to regain Uie spotlight. Risdon will probably start -»Uh Bill Sweeney and Joe Brody &t forwards. George Litke it center and Emi) Jurewicz and Ed Ge:>- seck in the backcourt. For Rubber, the starting five will probaL-1,- be Jack Fruin and El Furtado, fir- wards, Harry Chofey, center, anr! Wally Yackowski and Chuck Wojack, guards. Chemical is a heavy favorite to hand Glass' mighty mites a defeat in the nightcap. The Chemists. have shown a strong second half attack in ail games to date, rallying to almost nip Risdon and coming from behind to defeat Rubber. The Glass Co. Midgets, although beaten badly by Risdon and Rubber, managed to stay in contention throughout the first half and two weeks ago trounced the Eastern Malleable Iron Co. quintet. Highlanders Book New York Violets For Game Here Monday Boston College Whips Yale, 45-33 New Haven. Dec. 28— (UP>-Yale's- ptovlng was up in the .v.r and one of its players was grounded. Those .are the two . hief reasons given for the Elis' basketball defeat at the hands of Boston College last niffht, 45-33. Yale's star forward, Ted Anderson, didn't arrive until the second half because of poor flying weather on his vacation return trip. He sparked the Blues into a lead, but peor marksmanship and lack of Coordination by the team as a whole doomed its chances.
