PAGE *—NATTGATPCK NEWS (CONN.)', THURSDAY, DEC. 29, 1949 Greyhounds Bow To Cross, 57-48 Lose Fourth Straight Game, Fifth In Six For Season Bob "Red" White Paces Local Scorers The Naugatuck High school basketball team lost its fourth straight gusne—fifth in six starts this season—last night, going down before Wilbur Cross High of New Haven, 57-48 at the Waterbury Armory. The squads battled on even terms through most of the opening period and two minutes before the end of the frame were tied at 7-all. However, a pair of baskets by Cross gave them an 11-8 bulge at the end of the period. The Greyhounds rallied in the early minutes of the second quarter and took a 15-13 lead in the first three minutes. For the next three minutes the teams battled back and forth without too much scoring, and with only two minutes to go until the half, the locals were on top 16-15. Cross then exploded and put together 12 straight points before Naugatuck was able to score again, putting in twn baskets to leave the court at intermission on the short end of a 27-20 score. Torrid Pace The New Haven Club continued to set a torrid pace in the first three minutes of the third period, outscoring the Garnet, 9-1. to run their lead to 36-21. Again the locals rallied, cutting the marking to 41-36 just before the end of the period, but another basket by Cross enabled them to boost their lead to 43-36 going into the final quarter. Wally Dumonski dropped in a basket and Bob White converted a foul to cut Cross' margin to 44-39 in the first minute of the final period, but Cross then took over and ran their lead to 51-42 at the automatic time. With two -minutes to go they had boosted the lead to 57-42. Playing against the reserves in the final minutes, the Greyhounds were able to cut the margin to 57-48 at the finish. Although absorbing their fifth loss of the season, the locals showed some improvement and although their play was spotty, while playing together they gave a good account of themselves. The Greyhounds made good on 18 of 30 tries from the foul line, while Cross was clicking on 11 of 19. Naugatuck had 17 personals charged against them and Cross 24. Jack Knapp, Naugatuck center, fouled out midway through the third period. He was followed to the sidelines by Pascareila of Cross and with one minute left in the final period by Angiolla, also of Cross. Manny Matos, who scored 14 points in Mondays loss to the Alumni, played less than half a period. Jayvees Win The junior varsity gave the locals a split for the evening, by taking a thrilling 34-32 victory in the preliminary. The Greypups built up a 10-0 lead in the first few minutes of the period, but their edge was cut- to 10-5 at the quarter. Cross kept chipping away at the lead in the second quarter and left the court at half-time on the short end of an 18-14 count. They rallied in the third period to tie it up at 27-alL The last quarter was close j throughout, with the outcome in doubt until the final whistle. Ed Szczoczarz was high man for the winners with 10 points. Manny Matos scored seven. The scores: Wilbur Cross Zanni, If DeRosa, If ... Angiolla, rf .. Shanley, rf . . . .

The Elis, performing poorly =>eainst Boston College on Tuesday, after a vacation layoff, were held to 33 points, their second lowest total in five years and their lowest under Hobson.

Prior to the B. C. game the Blue quintet had averaged 62 points a game. IREWING CO, WPUIMANSITT • MASS. FAMOUS IN NEW ENGLAND FOR SO YEARS!

Huskies Out To End Four-Game Losing Streak Tonight Storrs, Dec. 29—Connecticut's basketball team will attempt to break a four-Kame losing- .streak here tonight in the finale of a three-game vacation slate which pits it against top-nanking- Muhlenberg College, Besides having lost the first two vacation tilts to Manhattan and Pitsburgh, the Uconns also have lost to Brown and to Yale. The Uconns now have a 3-4 record which, of course, they would like to even up tonight at the expense of the visitors from Allentown, Pa. The Mules, however, are expected to furnish the toughest competition the Uconns have been called on to face this year. The little Lutheran school has a veteran squad that last year scored double victories over both Temple and Long Island U. and also chalked up wins against Seton Hall, St. Joseph's and Cornell. Still with -the Mules are eight lettermen, including three players who scored over 200 points a year ago. With speed and experience to rely on, the Mules are being picked as one of the teams to watch in the East. They dropped a close one to Temple this year but have registered convincing victories over Fordham, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
