FRIDAY, .TANTJATLY 7,1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNEI-LSVIIJJS. PA. PAGE SEVENTEEN. Fayette City Hangs Up Victory; Lovich Hits Hoop, Regularly V i s i t o r s Considered "Easy Picking" for Commodores: Kiwanis Begird Season's Last EARLY LEAD Half Tonight DECIDES TILT! * A major upset in basketball occurred last night when Fayette City I High which has lost its last 13 league | games and was a seemingly easy victim for Belle Vcrnon in the season's opener, grabbed off a commanding lead in the flrst half to score a victory over Perry Township High, one ot the stronger teams in Section 18, yesterday at the Pcrryopolis gym, 33 to 26. The Commodores were not able to set their offense to click in the first half even though Coach Stimmcl tried several different combinations. In the meantime, Lovich, , Fayette City forward, was finding the basket with alarming accuracy to steadily increase his team's score. The visitors were leading 9 to 1 at the end of the initial period and increased this advantage to 17-6 at half time. Perry Township began to find the range during the second half, outscoring opponents in the last two periods but the damage had been done and the Commodores 'found themselves unable to close the gap. Foul shooting on both sides was very poor. Perry Sank two out of 12 while the visitors were getting one out of 12. Rollins and Blair contributed 19 points to the losers' total while each of the five members of tho visitors' starting lineup figured in the scoring, no one counting less than four points.

With all teams revamped, the Kiwanis Duckpin League starts anew tonight at the Live Wire alleys. Drawings for the teams took place "in the dark" on Wednesday as captains selected their players by number instead of name--not being aware of the "recruit" until the draw was completed. An effort has been made to even up the circuit so that it will provide tight competition instead of giving one outfit all the superior bowlers. 'Bill" Pujia, new chairman o£ the sports committee, accuses "Doc" FitzGcrald of "underhanded methods" in always having the champ ionship club. He says the former sports chairman gave himself the best line-up. "We fooled him, now that I'm in charge," says the new chairman. "I'll be the winning captain and take that trophy next spring." Anyway, Kiwanians generally agree the "duck" league is about the best kind of fun there is to help fill a winter evening.
