On Friday night the local high school basketball teams motored to Greenwood where they met the Greenwood fives. The girls' game was played first, the Granton girls losing by a score of 20 to 3.
The boys' game followed. In the first ten minutes of play, the locals played their opponents completely off their feet, making four of five baskets before Greenwood realtized what had happened. The Greenwood five then tightened up, making the game a little more interesting -- to Granton. The superior team work of the locals finally ran the score up so that at the end of the first half the score stood 18 to 5 in favor of our men.
The last half the Greenwood boys came out to win, but after five minutes of play the locals tightened up and played all around Greenwood. The game ended in a score of 30 to 10 for Granton, making the second victory of the season for Capt. Rausch's squad.
