I'm assuming you are writing about the death of the Soc. in the park. There are many reasons to deffend these boys. Some of the major reasons include:

1. Johnny was terrified the boys were going to drown Ponyboy in the park fountain.

2. The two Soc's initiated the fight by following the boys into the park and threatening them.

3. Johnny had been attacked by these same boys in the past and was affraid for his life.

Those are the main ones I would use.
