At the same .ittfme the Rock- ettes won their- first two conference games over the Canadian Kittens and Lefors Pir- attes. The Rackets defeated Canadian 68 to 50 Tuesday night, Jan. 21, then squeaked by Lefors 40 to 39 Friday, Jan. 24. The Rockebtes ,had little difficulty winding 48-36 from the Kittens and 55-25 from Lefors. Lefors-Rockets The Lefors game for the boys was slated by sports writers as one of the best on the Friday night schedule and it turned ou^ to be just that. The lead changed hands several times and the" score was tied .several times. It was a different kind of playing than the Rockets were' used to, as the Pirates' tactics are to hold down' the opponents' score rather 'than to run up a big score for themselves. Considering the difference, •the Rockets played a goed defensive game and 'hustled well. Terry Bromlow of the Pirates was high scorer with 21 points; Roger Weems and BiM Spillman tied for the Rockets with 13 each.
