PAGE SIX Moody, Venable lag Match Two-Welch Brothers Lose Battle of Flying Fists and Feet After a brief but decisive third fall, Jack Moody and Billy Venable defeated Jpe and Jack Welch lasl night at trie Legion Arena in a tug match that featured a storm of flying lists and feel. The lag tangle was roughhouse all the way with rough and tumble tactics standard operating procedure for all hands. . Joe Welch and Venable opened llic fray anrt the first fall got underway with give-and-take grappling' by alternating partners. After taking time out to knock Moody out of his own corner, Joe look the lead against Venable with his flashing footwork, throwing punches with both feet. The first free-for-nll came when Joe gave a' mighty leap to Isind atop Moody,- Brother Jack and Referee Mike Mcroney In an effort to get at Venable in his corner. Following the disentanglement, Joe kicked his way out of Moody's head-lock and tagged Jack, who immediately received a working over in the opposite corner by both Moody and Venable. Another four- man tangle was quick lo occur when Jack took after Venable and chased him around the outside edge pf the ring for surrcpliously aiding Moorty. Itcfcrcc Gets Workout Referee Mcroney was given several good work-outs as he struggled' lo enforce breaks between .unwilling erapplers. At one point, Joe Welch and Venable became so entangled that Mike spent several harried moments trying to unknot the four legs. The Welches drew flrsl blo'ort when Joe softened up Venable with body blows, then turned him over to Jack for the pinning and cllmi- , nation. Moody kept both Welches busy for a few minutes, nearly heaving Jack over Ihe side until Joe came to his brother's rescue with flying feet. He lashed Moody with flail- Ing feet until the latter was groggy. A leg bar nnd scissors by Joe gave the first fall to the Welches after 30 minutes of battle. Moody and: Venable started their comeback curly in the second fall by taking turns punishing .lack Welch with prolonged hammerlocks. Several minutes of this and Jack was quickly put out of Ihe running by Venable's double wrist lock. Venable then tried for a quick wind-up by charging Joe, who lashed out with a kangaroo-kick that flattened the attacker. Joe . jnilcUiy scooped up. Venable's legs nnd pinned him with a double jack-knife. . Moody received n striking surprise as Joe began the final minutes of the fail liy chasing him nround and around the ring. And at least every eighth of. a revolution, Joe hotly applied his right foot lo the back of Moody's trunks. Moody escaped by leaping over Ihe ropes. -•Moody returned to hand Joe a . scries Of uppercuts and followed through with his favorite fatal told, a Strangler Lewis headlock, whiAi downed Joe to give the Fall to Moody and Venable in 15 minules. Turns Defeat Into Victory A few minutes after the opening of the final fall, Moody turned defeat into victory. Joe booted Moody with, a kangaroo-kick, floored him and applied a double, jack-knife, but Moody rolled him over and turned It into a body pin that eliminated Joe. Tlie rest of the match was chiefly nn exchange of leg locks between Jack Welch and' Moody until Venable switched to a stomp hamnvr- lock with which he and his partner toqk turns punishing jack until the last welch capitulated after 1C minutes of mat-work. In a fast-moving, rough first prelim, the matmcn battled back and forth and tried to tie one another In knots. Jack Welch won by splicing Venable in a Japanese leg lock in 15 minutes. Joe Welch copped the scmi-wlnd- np after a !5-niinutc display of the sterling sportsmanship involved in a quarter of a n hour of kicking a man when he's down. Moody lost because he was dull enough to : turn his back and dare Joe to try another full-Nelson, joe took the dare and collapsed him with a kangaroo-kick.
