Winthrop's quintet oozed back into a first place tie with Dunster in the intramural leagues last night with a 46 to 44 triumph over Lowell, while Kirkland toppied Eliot 45 to 41 in a foul-fraught fracas.
Dunster had basked in a half-game lead for 24 hours when it trampled Adams, 69 to 29, Monday night. Well-coordinated and in the lead for most of last night's game, the Bellboys were unable to prevent Winthrop from equalling Dunster's 10 and 1 section total.
In another close one, Dudley got one basket too many for Leverett in a 33 to 31 brawl.
