The Boston Terriers and Montreal Habitants obliged those fans who came to Atlantic Avenue Grounds hoping for an exciting game.

The Boston Terriers topped the Montreal Habitants, 5-4, in American Baseball League action at Atlantic Avenue Grounds. The player of the game was Boston pitcher Bob Griffin. Griffin got the win, improving to 11-10. He allowed 9 hits and walked 2 over 9 innings. Griffin allowed 4 earned runs.

A crucial at-bat came with a runner on 1st and no one out in the bottom of the sixth inning. That's when center fielder Harry Ivey, who finished 5th in the NBL in home runs with 14 in 1943, hit a single. The Terriers went on to win.

"The more wins we pile up," said Ivey, "the more I like our chances."

The Terriers saw their record improve to 62-48.
