It was perfectly executed by the hustling .Nash who had a hand in making the Lyons fans take down the banner, “See You at the Playoff,” and, put it in moth balls for at least another year. Tlie Reds turned ii? a near-perfect game in thwarting Lyons' hopes for the third game that didn't come this season, John Gavin. Rick Gravino, Dick Rago, Paul Priebe and Nash all played an ex­ cellent game, particularly on defense. Gavin must\ like to play against Lyons. He checked in with another strong board game arid -without him we'd hesitate to think what would have happened in the county seat Friday night Coach .Gary Miller’s Orcd-up club resorted to what the boys in the bigger leagues call a disciplined offense and it again paid off handsomely. The Reds worked the ball for the good shot and we don’t mean the stall or weave pattern. They’d move the ball inside and if the clear shot wasn't there they'd get it out and try an ­ other direction.
