SPRINGFIELD DEFEATED SftTOfc
In a rather onr wirted,contest the high,
school basket ball team met andebfiegted
the Springfield high school team by a
score of 58 to 6. The game was played
in the local high school gym.
The local boys made fifteen field
baskets in the first half and fourteen in
the second half while the best the Spring
field boys could do was to make four free
throws and one field basket, all of which
were made by Scott, the Springfield
Durbahn and Schleuder were the best
basket makers for the local high, the
former petting fourteen and Schleuder
eight. Dougher also made five baskets
in the half in which he played and Her
The game as far as fouls were con
cerned was one of the best ever played,
the local boys making an even dozen
fouls, while Springfield had none to their
credit. This was no doubt due to the
rapidity in which the local quint handled
the ball, not giving Springfield a chance
to foul. Of tha twelve fouls made by
the New Ulm team four were made into
points by the Springfield center.
The work of the Springfield guards
was very ragged and this, coupled with
poor basket shooting by that team, and
excellent guarding by the New Ulm boys
spelled defeat for the Springfield team.
The lineup and summary of the game
was as follows:
Ebert, the college forward, made seven
baskets during the game, five in the first
half and two in the second half. The
rest of the college players each made a
mermann did the scoring for the senior
quint, each making three field baskets.
Alwin made the other field basket for the
In the first half the college had a four
int lead on the seniors which they
managed to keep during the entire game,
altho the seniors played harder In the
second half and held them down to nine
points in that time, they themselves also
making the same number.
The game was a good, clean game, all
unnecessary roughness being cast aside.
Nine fouls were made by both teams,
three by the seniors and five by the
This is the second game played be
tween the college second and high school
teams, the first being played early in the
season with the sophomores in which
the sophomores defeated the college boys.

In a game played as preliminary to

College second team defeated the high
school seniors by a score of 21 to 17.
The senior team lacked the experience

opponents, some of whom have played
with the first team. The basket shoot

that of the college team was good.
