LOST BOTH GAMES
Augustana Girls Defeated by
DeKalb and Second Team by
Y. M. C. A. at Basketball.
ARE GOOD EXHIBITIONS
Normal Team Easily Outclasses Local
Players Association Team Loses
Augustana suffered a double defeat
Saturday night in basketball. The
crack girls' team of the DeKalb nor
mal school was responsible for the
first defeat, while the second team
of Rock Island Y. M. C. A. was the
guilty party in the second game. An
additional game between the college
first team and Moline high school had
been planned, but the latter failed
The game between the normal and
college girls resulted with the score
28 to 7 in favor of Uie former. The
game was the cleanest exhibition of
Lcskethall seen in the college gym
r.asium this year. The playing of the
normal five was of the highest order
and it is extremely doubtful if there
is a girls' team in the state that can
defeat them. They claim an unbroken
line of victories for the last two years.
Fowls were responsible for the de
feat of the college boys in the game
with the Y. M. C. A. Of the 3G points
scored by the latter team, 20 were
made by Ficken on foul baskets, with
24 free throws, establishing a new
record in this department of the game
in the three cities. The college led
at the end of the first half by a score
of 19 to 15, but the second half went
to the Y. M. C. A., 21 to 13, making
the total 3G to 32.

The Rock Island Y. M. C. A. first
team was defeated in a game of bas
ketball by. the YiJton Crescents at
Wilton Saturday, night, in one of the
fastest games ever played there, the
score being 37 to 25.
The local team was handicapped by
the absence of Ficken. who played
with the second team at Augustana,
the first team losing many points on
free thnAvs, at which he is a star.
This game is the second game be
tween these teams, the other result
ing in a victory for the Y. M. C. A.
This game ended the season for the
local team. The boys have had a very
successful season, and have won the
majority of their games, and defeated
all tri-city opponents.
