WEDNESDAY. JAN. 18. 1032 THE MORNING NEWS, DANVILLE, PA. PAGE 3 HIGH WINS LISTLESS GAME FROM LEWISBURG THE MOST B i ; Spirit And Zest Of Mt. Cartnel Game Disappear In Indifferent Fray With Collegians. The Danville High School basketball team won its second game of the Susquehanna League season last night when it defeated Lewisburg High School by the score of 28-15. The Orange and Purple, though victorious, looked far from the team that played Mt. Carmel High os Saturday. The local five did not shoot as usual and their passing was far from the usual standard. The Danville quintet had it made even one half of the shots attempted, would have run up a score of about 50 points. Lewisburg had a far different outfit than that of last year, with but one player who could do or play anything' that looked like basketball. The fame was attended by a small crowd, which was partly due to the Sunday School cage games being played at the Y. M. C. A. at the same time. Visitors Score First Lewisburg was the first to score when Mathlas accounted for one point which was followed by Riley scoring two points for the Orange and Purple. Vlathias scored a field goal for Lewisburg, while Montague of the locals, :aged a two pointer. Baker scored one oolnt for Lewisburg and the first quarter ended all knotted up with each team having four points. During the second period, neither quintet was able to do much scoring and the score at half time was tied it nine points each. The second half was an entirely different story as far as the Orange and Purple cagers were concerned. Riley snapped out of the day dream or what ever was wrong with this star shooter and scored eight field goals. Owen contributed one goal. Norry Friday Lewisburg was Just as bad the second half, failing to show any basketball. This team could not shoot or pass, and in the last 16 minutes of the game caged but two field goals and two fouls. The Orange and Purple squad will have to snap out of this kind of playing if the boys want to win Friday night, when they meet the Northumberland high quintet in another league game.

' The Watsontown Trojans handed the local Y. M. C. A. a severe jolt last evening in a basketball gamp played at Watsontown by a score of 25 to 21. The game was one of the closest played on the Watsontown floor this season, with the Otto ccached team unable to get ahead after the first quarter. The "Y" boys claim that the baskets were the worst that they have been up against this year. Tile first period was close with the "Y" getting a three point lead and holding it for the first ten minutes of the game. The score at the end of the first period was 7-4. In the second quarter the locals' lead was cut to two points, and when the first half was over the score read 9-7 in favor of the "Y" five. The next ten minutes found the Watsontown team outscoring the Otto quintet and when this quarter was over the score was tied at 15-all.

The Freshmen lost a real battle yes terday afternoon when the Juniors handed this crack quintet a defeat in an inter-class game by the score of 19-15. The Freshmen had the lead until the closing minutes when the upper classmen came to life and scored enough points to win. In the other inter-class game, the Sophomores took the Seniors across the wooden way for a trouncing, with a score of 31-11. The Sopnomores jumped into the lead right at the start of the game and were never in danger of losing it, completely outclassing the big shots of the high school. Freshmen Haddon, f 4 Leisey, f l Walder, c . . 1 Toland, g o Fox, g o Morrison, g l lead with the aid of six technical fouls. The biggest shock of the entire evening was the shooting of Harold "Sleepy" Werner, the sharp shooter of the Y. M. C. A. quintet. Werner was held without a field goal, scoring but one point, coming as the result of a free shot. This is the first time since the ace shooter joined the "Y" quintet that anything like this has happened. His teammates are still wondering what was wrong but claim that it was just one of those nights any player will have. Arnold and Evans were the high scorers for the evening, scoring 14 points between them. Cohen, the stellar guard of the Otto cagers, was removed from the game via the personal foul route. This help- I ed to weaken the "Y" although Miller, j wno replaced t;onen, pwyea a good game. The Y. M. C. A. cagers will play the Susquehanna Jayvees in a game on the local court, Friday.

Leisey Rally Wins The last game of the night was p'ayed between the Trinity Lutheran cagers and the Mahoning Presbyterian with the Leisey quintet staging a great rally in the second half to win the game. The first half was a real basket ball game with both teams fighting with the old do or die spirit and when the 'mekeeper's whistle was blown announcing the end of the half the Trinity team was out in front by one point it 13-12. In the second half the Lutheran cagers started to hit on all cylinders, caeine field goals from every angle of the floor and the "Presbys" were un ble to cage more than two baskets and one free throw. Howard Riley and John Bausch were the real stars of the game, with this pair scoring 23 points between them The guarding of Paul Bausch was out standing, this player holding Kamm, who last week ran wild in the game against the Pine Street Lutheran five to two field goals. The Mahoning quintet missed the services of "Choke" Evans, and Bob With about two minutes to I McWilliams, two of its stellar players. came within two points!

BY BUCK SHULTZ The high school five certainly gave the fans heart failure the first half. The team sure did look different last night than on Saturday. We are at a loss as to why a team should go up against Mt. Carmel and play such a fine game and against a team that failed to .show anything and look away off. There must be a reason. Maybe it was one of those nights. The "Piners" by winning1 last night just about clinched the first half unless the Trinity Lutheran cagers can hand them a set 'back January 21. The two teams will battle it out on this date and believe us it will be a battle. 1 Miracles will happen. Even "Sleepy" Werner had an off night in th game played against Watsontown las, night. This is not a Believe-it-or-Not Werner scored one point. : United States may seek to regain supremacy on the seas. Counting our rum fleets, we've got it now.
