March 13, 1941 A layup from "Patsy" McFadden during a "sudden death" period lifts Mauch Chunk Catholic to a 24-22 victory over Easton Catholic. Baskets from Paul Solski and Billy "Tiddley" McElmoyle during the fourth quarter force a tie and send the contest to overtime. In the OT, Solski and John Gillespie both hit from the floor to create another deadlock. The two teams determine the outcome with a sudden death period, which McFadden ends with his bucket. Solski ends with a team-high eight points while Larry Gallagher adds five.
