A sharpshooting Hononegah junior varsity had no trouble in defeating the Puppies for the sec- end time this season, 55 to 25. The Bulldogs won two of five conference contests this season, de- i feating Harlem of Rockford and Rockton. They have an over all record of six victories and seven defeats. With Weigand, Franz, and Law- ver hitting from the court, the Bulldogs overtook the Indians at the end of the first margin 21 to 8. Hononegah were only able to Imake five points the second period while Aquin tallied a total of 17 to lead at halftime 38 to 11. With five minutes remaining in the game, and Aquin leading by 25 points, Coach Tom Kienle sub- stituted the entire second string. Hononegah got hot and outscored the Bulldogs, 17 to 8. Aquin shot a very good scoring average with .466, while Rockton didn't do so well and had a mere .200. For the last two games Weigan took scoring honors, this time he canned nine field goals and two! charity tosses for 20 points. Jack Funk of the Indians was runner- up with 8 baskets and a free throw for 17 points. Gene Lawyer of Aquin had 14.

The Irish started to a 10-3 lead in the initial period as Huntley failed to hit the hoop for a field goal, making three free throws. The Saints continued to pile up advantage in the second with a dozen points to four for Guy Leighton's lads. The Red Skins fought back gamely in the final two periods, 5 to 5 in the third, but the last per- iod, they collected 14 points to six for the Irish. Dunham was high point man with nine points for the Green and White.

It was an Illowa conference game and keeps the slate clean for the Comets. In spite of their height the Steamers didn't accomplish much against the smooth functioning and accurate shooting Comets, so Fulton evidently decided to "thor- oughly enjoy" the affair. Community outscored the Steam- ers in every quarter by a great margin w~ieh led them to a suc- cessful victory. Blodgett won high scoring hon- ors for the game with 19 points for Fulton. Larry Zitkus was best with 4-7 for 15 points. Fulton's Row Boats won the pre- liminary by a close score of 55 to '54.
