Syracuse Herald Journal- Nats At Rochester To Oppose Royals
Humble Warriors Again
Having disposed of a Philadelphia threat for the time being with an 88-81 triumph over the Warriors at New Haven, the Syracuse Nationals moved here for a scuffle with the Royals tonight. Taming Philadelphia for the third time in four starts, the Nats pushed the Warriors back to third behind Boston, who makes a bid to catch the Syracusans at the War Memorial tomorrow night. The Nats and Celts play again Saturday in a nationally televised game at Beantown. Syracuse with a record of six victories in 11 starts away from home to go along with their 7-1 record at the War Memorial, has a two and one-half game lead over the Celts in the tight Eastern Division chase. New York, in last place, is but three games behind the Nats. Paul Seymour was the high scorer for Syracuse at New Haven with 25 points and he sank three important baskets in the last period spurt of the Nats to victory. With the score knotted at 70-all Kenville tallied a bucket and Rocha a foul before Paul Arizin hit for Philadelphia to leave the Nats in front 73-72. Then Seymour clicked on two successive set shots to open up the gap and the Nats were in front to stay. Earlier the Syracusans had blown a 40-30 lead as Minoa’s Ron Costello dropped in 10 points to lead a Warrior surge that once gave Ed Gottleib’s charges a 59-51 advantage. The game, played on an extremely slippery floor, was marked by excellent shooting and a minimum of fouls. Only 15 personals were charged to Philadelphia and 14 to the Nats. Neil Johnston, Warriors center, suffered a cut eye in the third period and was out for about 10 minutes as sutures were administered to close the wound. Five of the eight Nats who competed netted double figures. George King did not make the trip. Paul Arizin was high man for Phillies with 20 points.
