Kirkland strengthened its lead in "A" League basketball last night by downing Dunster 42 to 24. Smooth teamwork and a tight zone defense put the Deacons out in front early in the first half. They were never threatened.

In League "B" basketball, Leverett swamped Dudley 43 to 13. Clark Mollenhoff and Brow Craig led the Bunnies in scoring with 14 and 12 baskets respectively. Leverett had too much height for the Commuters.
