Observers Lay Great Stress On Defeat Of Ansonia On Home Court; Cite Greyhounds' Erratic Shooting I^augatuck's High School Greyhounds may have another and more unaccustomed canine designation when thev %o afja'ist Lcavenworth at thc Watcrbury armory Friday ni,7i)t—that, of underdog. Most ob- sorvcrs give Leavenworth a slight edge. .' .....,.' , The Tigers have an .impressive record which shows a 41-11 win over Oliver Wolcott Tech, a 32-29 win over Torrington, a. 48-20 decision over Wilby a 39-31 victory over Hill house and a 38-30 win over Ansonia. They have sole possession of first place in thc Valley league. Lcavcnwortl.'d stock has risen since last week. The Greyhounds were rated the team to beat after slr victory over Ansonia last Friday. However, when the Tigers defeated the strong Hillhouse of New Haven team at the Waterbury Armory last Saturday ,mbst observers were inclined to ratc'thcm on a' ; par with Naugatuck. "The •Tigci*'" victory over Aneonia. Tuesday evening on the Copper; City lads' home court is thc deciding, factor in giving them a slight edge over Nauga- mory last Saturday, most observers. As game -time draws closer, more and more importance is mt- tached to the Copper City win; therefore it is quite possible the reyhounds may take the floor tomorrow night a decided underdog. Two other factors also enter thc picture to explain why prc-gamc iudcment favois the Tigers. One is that Naugatuck's shooting has become ragged of late; thc other that thc quality of Naugatuck substitutes drops off sharply after thc five regulars. Reports from Monday's practice were that Coach Ray Folcy was experimenting with both Healys at Uie guards and Stauffor and Jones at forwards, in an effort to give the Greyhounds added scoring punch. The basis of the Greyhound attack BO far this season has been ahort undcr-Uie-baskct shots. Moving Vin Hcaly to the back couY was an attempt to increase tho, ef- fectivenes of the Greyhound long- | range artillery, in thc opinion of some observers. The Greyhounds j will hold practice a : t the Armory this afternoon, and it is possible that Co.ich Folcy may experiment further in an effort to bolster his team-'c scoring punch. It has been estimated that ade- , quate lighting on city streets would { save 3,000 persons from death an-1 nually. At Walfingfonl This Evening The Naugatuck Zcphyri will travel to WalllriKford tonight 14 play the Wa'llingford. Vets at tat State Armory, Manager Otto Mt>Cann announced tills morning.
