This drilling paid off on the first game of the season when the team made Friday the 13th a lucky day for themselves. The team romped to a 31-O victory over St. Charles. On September 20, Central played their second non-league game of the season. Cen- tral showed great fighting spirit but just couldn't hold U. City down. The final score was Central 13, and U. City 26. On September 27, the students witnessed the closest non-league game of the season. Although the Redwings made nineteen first downs to their opponents' three, they failed to defeat Wood River. The final score was Wood River 13, and Central 12. On October 11, Central faced the final league champs in their first league game of the season. Although the team showed a lot of fighting spirit, they were defeated. The final score was Central 7, and McKinley 13. Central students witnessed the most thrill- ing game of the season, Dctober 18, when Central met their arch rival. Although it was one of the best games of the season, the 4 team was overpowered at the end of the game. The score was Beaumont 26, and Central 13. Central finally came through on October 26. Students who witnessed the game saw Central's first and most decisive league victory as Central defeated Southwest 18 to 6. Central had a narrow escape on Novem- ber 2. Central was victorious in the end as Soldan went under by a score of Central 13 and Soldan 12. The game on November 9 found Central on bottom after two consecutive victories. The score was Central 0 and Cleveland 26. On November 16 Central suffered their most decisive defeat as they faced last year's champs. The final score of the game was Central O, Roosevelt 47. Central finished up the season in good style on Thanksgiving Day. The team traveled to Hannibal for their last non-league game of the year. The score was Central 13, and Hannibal O. The total for the season was four games won and six games lost. The opponents scored 179 points and Central scored 120 points.

BRADBURN, Coach The outlook for the 1946-47 season was not too bright, for the Central cagers did not have one regular returning from last year's team. Only three lettermen were returning. Jim Brislane, Bill Skewes, and Al Mirth, all substitutes the previous year. The first game of the season was against a fairly good McBride five. Inexperience and the inability to hit their shots cost the Red- wings their first defeat, by the rather large score of 34-22. After leading South Side Catholic, another strong Prep League five, throughout the first quarter and midway through the second, in our second game of the young season, the South Side cagers came to life and went on to trounce the smaller Central five by the overwhelming score of 48-33. St. Louis U. High was our next opponent. The defending State Champs had to go all out against a fighting Redwing five, to defeat them 28-23. lnaccuracy on the free-throw line was a main factor in their defeat. After holding Southwest to an 11-IO score at the half, in the opener of the Public High League, the Midtowners again got the second-half jitters as Southwest went on to win. decisively, 42-22. During the Christmas holidays, Central again entered the Normandy Invitational Tournament. Our first opponent in the meet was Fairview, one of the stronger County fives. The Redwings took the measure of the Fairview boys 24-17, with the first sign of showing spark and spunk enough to play well a whole game. Central had to over- come a half-time lead of 6-5, but once the lead was taken it was never diminished. Our next foe in the tourney was McBride, who again defeated the hapless Central team, 43- 29. After a first-quarter score of 9-6, the "Micks" pulled away and we never threat- ened throughout the game. Blewett was our next league opponent. Again the Red Wings failed to last a whole game, as a close score at the half, 20-18, was turned into a trouncing at the end, 55-33. Cleveland, a perennially strong five in the district, was pressed all the way, with a slightly improved Midtown five succumbing to the tune of 45-33, in the third successive league defeat. Central then traveled to Bayless High School, of the South County League. After overcoming a 10-point lead in the first quar- ter and trailing by only one at the half, the Redwings again faded to lose 39-31. Al Mirth garnered 14 points for the losers. Our next non-league affair was the annual game with Cape Girardeau, the first of a home-and-home series. The Redwings were ahead at the half, for the first time in the season, but again dwindled in the second. The final score was 31-21.
