season. The Rockets had to do
it the hard way, however, Sat

eight point deficit to down
Scottsbluff. Final score in that
tussle was 36-31, Northeast.
Scottsbluff, the only team to
defeat the champions this year,
started out as if they intended
to repeat. The Bluffs matched
point for point with the Rock
ets during the first period and
managed a one point, 10-9 lead
at the quarter.
The second period was all

minutes. At one time during
this period they held an eight

Rons, Fitzkie and Zook, kept
Glenvil in front in the contest
most of the way while the two
Mallettes, Pat and Mike, kept
the score close until tne last mo

the most closely guarded man
on the floor, but Fitzkie took
over in the scoring department
and kept the champions' score
mounting. Zook did deliver sev
eral markers to keep the cham
pions out of reach.
Pat Mallette was the best man
on the floor until he received
his fourth personal foul before
the first half came to a close.
Cousin Mike took over after that
and led the losing scorers.
Glenvil's triumph was the
33rd consecutive victory chalked
up by the class C champions
this year and kepi them one of
the two unbeaten teams in the

It was a case of too much
