Eliot Six Faces Davenport in New Haven Today

Elephants Try to Uphold 7 Game Winning Skein

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Eliot House's undefeated championship hockey team leaves this morning for New Haven, where it will take on Yale's Davenport College in the intermural ice playoff at 3 p.m.

Davenport clinched the Eli hockey championship last week with a season record of eight wins, one defeat.

The Mastodons will start Tom Cavanaugh at goal, Ames Stevens at left defense, and Clark Cowen at right defense. The fast-skating first line has Paul Bird-sall at center and wingmen Pete Reiner and Myles Herter. Eliot also boasts a high-scoring second line of Demetrius Anderson and wings Bob Baldwin and Bill Bridges, who have worked very effectively together all season.

Outstanding defenseman on the second team since the mid-term graduation of Fred Ecker, has been Doug Bradlee. His defense-mate in John Cowles.

Reveal Ringer

Eliot's undefeated skein was almost marred in mid-February when it dropped a contest to Dunster by one point. But the game was later forfeited to the Elephants when it was disclosed that the Fansters had been using a ringer--a Lexington High goalie--in the nets.

Few of the other wins have come easily. Baldwin and third-lineman Kent Eaton have scored goals in sudden-death overtimes to down Lowell and Dudley. Eliot clinched the inter-House title last week against Winthrop with a late counter by Reiner on a pass from Birdsall.

The Davenport starting line has Henry Ross, Harry Gruner, and Stan Shepard. Defensemen are Bob Legray and Al Warner, with Charlie Lee in the nets.
