Eliot Edges Winthrop, 41-40; First Round Wrestling Ends

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Eliot overcame a one-point Winthrop lead in the final seconds to win, 41 to 40, in an "A" League basketball game at the Blockhouse yesterday.

The Puritans, led by Hob Parker, who scored 16 points, were ahead almost all the way, enjoying a 21 to 19 half-time advantage. But with only 12 seconds left to play, the Puritans, leading by one point, lost the ball out of bounds.

Jim Davis of Eliot took the ensuing throw-in, and then she: the winning basket. Davis was high scorer for the Elephants with 11 points.

Eliot's win in basketball followed an Elephant hockey victory over Winthrop, 1 to 0, yesterday.
