PAGE Tttfc ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, JANUARY *, 1*50 Oilers Undisputed Leaders in Southwestern Conference Stop Collinsville Crew »* m /» j /% n *nt . j #y 53-42 Score; Third Victory in Loop Action The Wood River Oilers will meet an Illinois Valley Confei •nee team, Roodhouse, at Wood River High gymnasium tonight. The game will start at 8:15 p. m. What the 1949-50 crop of Wood River Oilers accomplish the rest of the season is dependent on a lot of unforseeable factors, but Friday night the Oilers turned a trick that Wood River teams have been unable to do for several years when they overpowered the Collinsville Kahoks, 53-42, at Col linsvllle in a Southwestern Conference game. On the surface, all the Oilers did was score more points than the Kahoks. But here are some of the things they were achieving at the same time. No. 1—Taking undisputed possession of the Southwestern Conference lead with a record of three wins and no losses. No. 2—Becoming the first team to defeat the Kahoks on the Collinsville court since Glllesple turned the trick Feb. 22, 1946 (almost four years ago). No. 3—Racking up their ninth victory in ten games this season. No. 4—Tumbling the Kahoks to fourth place In the Southwestern Conference standing (behind Belleville and Edwardsville as well as Wood River), a spot to which Coach Vergil Fletcher's crew is unaccustomed. The Kahoks' started off as if they were going right along with that home floor record by hitting a neat .500 percentage In the first quarter on their tries from the field and taking a neat if not large 12-8 lead when the period ended. But then the Oilers took command. Coach Chick Summers' shooters hit the hoop for 16 points In the second quarter and held Collinsville to eight to reverse the four point edge, taking a 24-20 lead. In the third period, the Wood River crew continued, to increase Its working edge, playing careful ball and taking advantage of Collinsville miscues to lead by a 3828 margin when the fourth stanza started. In the third quarter again, the Kahoks were able to score only eight points. Came the fourth quarter and both teams had their best scoring period as the Oilers hit for 1T> markers and the Kahoks counted for 14 points to boost the score to Its final count, 53-41 The game was a rough and tumble affair from the beginning. Without being deliberate, the boys made considerable contact under the basket and scrambling for free balls. In the third quarter, the Kahoks started to find the range on the bucket, but the Oil- era kept their heads and matched, or bettered, the Collinsville scoring. The Oiler attack was very well balanced with five Wood River shooters hitting the nets for eight or more points. Lowell Petitt, who played a great game in all departments, led the scoring for both teams as'he hit for 14 points on five field goals and four free throws. Not too far behind were Bob MuU and Norris Dorsey, each of whom accounted for 10 Oiler markers. Dorsey hit for five field goals for his point total while MuU relied on three two-pointers and (our free shots. Don Capron, who also turned In a great floor and rebounding game and Is rap. Idly returning to his early season form, racked up nine points on two buckets and five charity points. And Melvln Sheets came In fourth In the Wood River scoring derby with eight points on (our fielders. Much credit for the Oiler victory is due to the Wood River defense's halting the Kahok forwards, Curt Klobucher and Jim Belobraydlr. Belobraydlc hit (or only tout points and Klobucher had but two. Hut the Oilers found Chuck Kraak harder to slop ns the Colllusvillo pivot hit for 12 markers on foui field goals and four free shots. Jack Renfro was close behind with 11 on four buckets mid three char- Ity shots. Don Leone was the third high man for Collinsville with nine points on four baskets and a free throw. Renfro for Collinsville and Dorsey for Wood River both left the game on five personal fouls. After the game with Roodhouse tonight at Wood River High gym, the Oilers will get buck into conference Bctlon Tuesday against the Granite City Happy Warriors, at Wood River.
