VOLUME -66 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, IKJCIHIGAN . THURSDAY, DEC. 16,. 1948." NUMBER M Hornets Edge Brighton In 30-29 Tilt For the second time this season Coach Joe Colby's Saline Hornets came from behind to win a basketball game. This time the victims were the Brighton basket- eers who dropped a 30-29 decision to the locals Tuesday night. Scoring first but unable to match the pace of Archie Petersen's lads, the Hornets were tsailmg 21-12 at halftime and SS-19 at the close of the third quarter. Then, just as in the Canton game of a week ago, things began to pop—right after the automatic time-out. Behind 27-26 ynth but two minutes and fifty- seven seconds to go, the Hive "turned on the steam." Jack Thomas fouled Wayne Clements in the act of shooting. Clements neatly sank both of his free throws, and Saline led 28-27. For two minutes and eight seconds, the contest was tight wifch neither team .scoring. Then forty-five seconds before the game became history, the Hornets' Charlie Gross was fouled by Gil O'Do- herty. The Hornets took the ball out of bounds and on a neat play shook Wayne Clements loose under the bucket and shot him the ball for an easy lay-up and the clincher. Jim Anderson sank a long torn for Brighton—a desperation shot—for the last score of the game. Jim Anderson paced the losers with ten points, while three Hornets figured prominently in the Saline scoring. Wayne Clements, tallied nine points; Charlie Gross, had seven; Wayne Predmore, six. The little Hornets, dropped their third straight as they lost to the Brighton seconds, 20-9. Charles Beach and Ed Andrews were high for Brighton, each with six points. Jack Leonard paced the Little Hornets with . three. points: Heads Lodge „ ^•sri^'f^r-'- - tys_% - -ypri.^;t~-v •£*.■>: - ' .* A. - X 4 ' 'Iff' »,...-* 7 '■'. -*--v W - Louis Bowen, who was installed as worshipful master of Saline Lodge, No. 133, F. & A.
