Hockey Team Gains 4-1 Record in Vacation Play

Six Tops BC, Takes Two from Minnesota, Splits Pair with Powerful North Dakota


Cooney Wetland's varsity hockey players arrived home from their Western trip at 1:15 a.m. today boasting one of their best vacation records is recent years. After a victory over B.C, early in the vacation, the Crimson went West and registered two ever time wins against Minnesota and split a two-game series with heavily-favored North Dakota, for a vacation record of four and one.

Playing against excellent competition, the varsity showed marked improvement over its earlier games. Weiland's concentration on teaching the playing to stick to positions has paid off, as the record shows. Sophomore Nate Corning at goal, and the first line of Captain Lew preston, Joc Kittredge, and Hal Marshall were the individual stars.

Come from Behind

In the B.C. game, played December 20 t the Arena, the Crimson came from three goals behind to defeat the Eagles, 5 to 3. Harvard dominated the play after the first period, in which B.C. tallied three quick break-away goals before the Crimson scored. Corning had only 32 naves during the game while his opponent, Joe Carroll, stopped 51.

Kirttredge broke the ice for Harvard at 11:03 of the second period, and Amory Hubbard flipped in a Jack Carman pass at 15:54. Bob DiBlasio tied it up by batting in the puck off a B.C. defense man's stick.

Walt Greeley broke the deadlock on a rush at 5:54 of the last period, with Preston clinching it by hitting the open B.C. net just before the end.

At Minneapolis, the Crimson had to go into overtime twice to defeat the Gophers, 4 to 3, and 7 to 6, on December 29 and 30. Kittredge scored twice kunassisted in the first period of the first game, while Minnesota was counting three times. Johnny White tied it up on a pass from DiBlasio in the second period. After a scoreless final stanza, Preston won it at 7:39 of the sudden death overtime with assists by Kittredge and Marshall.

In the second game Harvard jumped to a 4-0 lead on two goals each by DiBlasio and Kittredge; but Minnesota bounced back with three in the second period, and tied it up at 6-6 in the final minute of the game. Kittedge scored the winng goal at 1:02 of the overtime with an assist by Preston.

Weiland's underdog team stretched its victory string to four by downing North Dakota, 5 to 2, on January 1 in Grand Forks before 4,000 spectators. The Sioux bounced back to a 5 to 2 win the following night.

Corning was outstanding in the nets in the first North Dakota game, with 31 saves, allowing one goal on a screen shot in the second period and one in the final period. And the championship Sioux sextet pressed hard throughout the game.

The Crimson scored twice in the first period on a goal by Marshall and a 25-footer by Dusty Burke. In the second period Marshall again tallied on a deflection shot. Kittredge and White put the game away with last period goals. Preston assisted on four of the five scores in a closely-contested game.

Three first period goals and one in each of the last two periods gave the Sioux the return game. Marshall, Kittredge, and Hubbard were the Harvard scorers--one in each period, but the Crimson ran out of gas and could never overcome the initial deficit.
