Mean- i while the Cubs were held to six- teen goals from the field and connected with thirteen of 21 from the charity line. Sedro started, the contest as though they were going to make short work of the Eagles, hop- ping into a 10-7 lead midway in the first period. At this point Dick Schuh and Ron Thompson began to hit for the Eagles and the~, Blue and Gold bounced into a 17 to 12 lead at the quarter. Again Sedro forged into a lead, this time 24 to 21, with minutes to go before the half, only to have Schuh connect in the final sec- onds and tie the count at 25 all as the teams left the floor• Tommy Erickson, held to a single point in the first half, opened the third period with three straight buckets before Se- dro could score. The Cubs held their own with Ross connecting !at the buzzer to shave Arlington's margin to 39 to 38. Tommy Erick- son continued his scoring spree in the final canto, being helped no little by Schuh and Thompson, and the Eagles pulled away in the final minutes to score their unexpetced victory. Dick Schuh, held scoreless last week at Nooksack. led both clubs in scoring with seventeen points, seven from the floor and three out of five from the foul line. Tommy Erickson followed with sixteen, fifteen coming in the second half. Ron Thompson, get- tins to start his first game, moved into the scoring picture with a bang, picking up thirteen points, the big Junior connecting twice from the floor and hitting a perfect nine for nine at the charity mark. Davis and Morgan paced the Cub attack with a doz- en each.
