Stony Brook Wins

Garden City, L. I. — In a thrilling overtime basketball game here yesterday, Stony Brook School eked out a close decision over St. Paul’s School 31 to 28. [Ed] Mackenzie and [Charles] Pateman were the heroes of the triumph. The visitors held an advantage of 14 to 7 at the end of the first half, but St. Paul’s evened matters by a great rally, the score being 26 to 26 when the regulation time was up.
