Favored Ephmen Entertain Crimson; Yost, Brooke Out

By Bayley F. Mason

The 20-man varsity lacrosse squad will travel to Williamstown today to enjoy the Williams houseparty weekend by playing an important league game against a favored Purple ten at 2 p.m. on Cole Field.

Coach Bruce Munro considers this year's varsity stronger on team play than last season's club which bowed to the Ephmen, 8 to 6, at Cambridge. But injuries have sidelined creaseman Ned Yost, and reserve attackman and midfielder Pete Brooke, and several other players are hobbling.

On the attack Munro will stick with the same combination he used in the M.I.T. rout on Wednesday. Roving forward Bill Plissner will play in Yost's slot and Bob Baldwin will move into Plissner's position.

Barring a game injury and assuming the midfields can work as well with feeder Rick Hudner as they did against Tech, the attack should be able to lower the 850 goal-foiling average of Williams' Mickey O'Connell.

The defense, Jay Byrne, Fred Coburn, and Bill Spence, is intact, but Munro is still seeking a third man to replace Brooke, out with tonsillitis, in the third midfield. One of the replacements will be made from the fourth midfield of Ed Thayer, Laurie Otis, and George Bender.

Williams will start a veteran team which suffered the usual spring trip losses to Duke and Navy, then settled down to beat Loyola, Union, and Tufts. (Williams beat Tufts, 8 to 3, Harvard won, 13 to 7.) The Ephmen also looked surprisingly well in losing to undefeated Yale by only two goals, 7 to 5.

Probable lineups:


Attack: Hudner, Plissner, Baldwin; Midfield: Birdsall, Davidson (C), Post; Defense: Spence, Byrne, Coburn; Goal: Clark or Thomas.


Attack: McWilliams, Day, Schluter; Midfield: Van Dusen, Scofield, Brumbaugh; Defense: Simpson (C), Reynolds, Young; Goal: O'Connell (C).
