Squash Team Extends Win Streak In Handing Tigers First Defeat, 8-1
The Crimson squash team kept its unbeaten streak intact yesterday by crushing previously undefeated Princeton, 8 to 1, at Hemenway Gym before a packed gallery.
If Coach Jack Barnaby was optimistic before yesterday's match, he was down-right jubilant afterwards. Pleased by the unexpected slaughter, Barnaby praised the performances of all the players on his national championship squad, but emphasized the great job done by number one man Charlie Ufford.
Ufford, recuperated from his recent attack of mumps, easily beat Tiger star Cecil North, 15-5, 15-11, and 15-7. Barnaby said Ufford was "really brilliant" in using his long reach and powerful corner shots to turn the match into a rout.
The coach was also pleased with the performance of his number two man, Captain Jim Bacon, who downed the Tiger's Bill Sprague, 15-7, 15-8, and 15-13.
In number three, Dave Watts set back Princeton's Charley Warner, 15-11, 15-12, and 15-12. The Crimson's number four man. Muggy Mugaseth, had a real battle on his hands, but eventually defeated Perry Fox, 12-15, 15-12, 15-11, and 15-8. Dave Symmes had an equally hard time overcoming Tiger number four man Ben Edwards, 15-8, 18-15, 14-16, and 15-11.
Despite a strong comeback, Altie Flagg, number six man, was defeated by Pete Benollel, 15-11, 15-12, 12-15, 4-15, and 15-12.
Wis Wood, in number seven, defeated Brantz Bryan, 15-12, 15-3, and 15-7. Charley Eliott came from behind to win from Mike Donahue, 15-17, 13-6, 15-11, and 15-12, and Mike Ward was pressed hard by Tiger Dave Moore before winning, 15-12, 13-16, 5-15, and 15-12
