A packed gymnasium of partisan but orderly rooters watched the final contest of the county tournament on the Burt floor. In the consolation final, Whittemore eased to a 41-35 victory over Seneca. Burt won its way into the finals Friday night by downing the Whittemore girll 57 to 27, while Seneca bowed to Lakota m the other contest, Friday night. Lakoia Led Early In the Burt-Lakota game it was a case of sharpshooting and expert guarding against gameness. Burt had the size, but for the first quarter of the game, and even to halftime, Lakota made it a battle. Lakota, in fact, took an early lead with two quick baskets. Dremmel then dropped in a free throw and a basket for Burt, but Farrow came through for a Lakota bucket and Lakota led, 6 to 3. f Bleich t and Griese of Burt tallied, to put Burt ahead for the first time, but Farrow again dropped a goal, as the game seesawed in score to the quarter. Dremmel's free throw gave Burt an 11 to 0 edge at the first quarter. Clow At The Half From that point on, Burt held the lead. At the half it was 23 to 20 for Burt, but the third quarter proved disastrous for Lakota. Here Burt took full advantage of the height of Harriet Griese and Lavonne Bleich in the forward floor, while Ethel Lampe at guard played the best game of her career. Seldom did a rebound escape her. At the third quarter, Burt led 41 -23, and then coasted on into the final quarter with a safe margin all the way.
