After being stopped last week by k powerful Johnstown five (88-6?) our Mountain
Lions broke into the scoring column Wednesday of this week when they stopped Keystone
65-63, chalking up their first league victory.
In the first half the Lioni unmercifully mauled the Keystone five ary* when
Keystone limped back to their dressing rooms at half time the Lions were enjoying a
41-27 margin. The Lions were not only hot but blazed a trail of sparks up and down
the A*23. Thomas Court* allowing the beys from Keystone to split the cards with only
ten field goals.
The second half, however, saw a determined Keystone team, and it took everything
short of bloodshed to stop these boys. Quickly overcoming the Lions comfortable
margin, the Keystoners began to press for victory, but the Lions played beautiful
defensive ball forcing the Keystoners to foul in important spots. At the end, Lon
Krentz calmly walked to the foul line and dumped in two to put the Lions in the
winning column*
Aggressive Jim Ustynoski flipped in 1?, and Don Krentz, the man taking those
rebounds, also had 17. frank hooked in 17 to place himself in the double point
Burein, Atherholt, Mistiszyn, Scarcella and Carroll each did his share of both
defensive and offensive ball, enabling the Mountain Lions to chalk up Victory Humber
I. We all hope that the story in the Collegian next week will be Victory Humber 11.
How about it boys?
The coach and boys from Johnstown wish sincerely to thank the members of the
faoulty and the dormitory students who made their stay here possible. We appreciate
your friendship and hospitality. We were very comfortable. You have a swell group
of boys. We couldn’t have beaten a better team.
