Wil­fred Davis and Don­nie Pay­ton com­bined to score 23 sec­ond half points as coach Larry Wild­goose’s East Side Recre­ation Cen­ter over­came a half­time deficit to take a hard-fought 53-48 de­ci­sion from the West Side Cen­ter. Davis copped game-high hon­ors with 22 points and Pay­ton chipped in with 17, while Joe Ford and Bobby Ar­righi also played well. For Cappy Aser­mely’s West Siders, Dick Blais, Bob Stephen­son and Moe Mar­shall were out­stand­ing in de­feat.


Cum­ber­land bas­ket­ball coach Joe Dragon has only one reg­u­lar back in 5-10 se­nior John McVeigh with 6-1 Greg Lukasiewicz and 6-1 Jim Kelly joining McVeigh in the start­ing lineup. Vy­ing for the other two slots are 5-5 Ge­orge Souza, 510 Don Heald, 5-10 Gra­ham Smith, 5-8 Don Tucker and 5-9 Gerry Gos­selin, while 6-2 se­nior Paul Stan­lewicz, who was cut from the squad last sea­son, has shown tremen­dous im­prove­ment and will be a top re­serve. “We’re very green but I think we’ll be im­proved over last sea­son,” Dragon com­mented in sum­ming up his Clip­pers.


Ben Mon­roe col­lected three as­sists and one goal and Mike Kee­gan ac­counted for four as­sists as the North Smith­field sex­tet blanked Davies Vo­ca­tional 5-0 at the Bur­ril­lville ice rink. Neil Nar­o­dowy opened the scor­ing for the North­men with the game only nine sec­onds old, pick­ing up a loose puck in front of the Pa­tri­ots net af­ter the puck took a weird bounce off the boards. Nar­o­dowy added a sec­ond tally in the sec­ond pe­riod and Dan Lemieux, Mon­roe and Jon Mundy fol­lowed with goals of their own.
