Fauure of Stubstitute to Re
port to Both Officials
A technicality gave Montana a hol
low victory over Idaho hy a margin of
one point last night, the defeat being
the first of the season for the Musco
vites, who previously had won 10
straight games. The failure of Itomig,
a substitute sent In by Coach Edmond
son of Idaho, to report to both of the
official scorers, lost the game for his
team, as a few second after entering
the contest, with but a minute of time
left, he shot a field goal from the
middle of the floor, giving Idaho a one
point lead. 30 to 29, the score previous
to his entry having been 29 to 28, in
the Bruins' favor.
A long dispute over the eligibility of
Hornig followed, the squabble being
settled by Edmondson conceding to the
annulment of Romig's field goal,
though he refused to allow Montana
the free throw,.which, according to the
rules, should follow a violation of the
codes such as committed by Romig.
The score was set hack to 29 to 28, in
Montana's favor, and there it re
mained until the game ended, though
Moe hod a chance to score on a free
Gam« Wat Rough.
The game was a rough and tumhle
contest, with frequent holding, though
the referee refrained from calling fouls
until the last minutes, during which
each team was given several opportu
nities from the ir»-foot line. Prescott,
Moe. Campbell and Larkin vied for
premier scoring honors, the first three
getting five field goals apiece, while
Iatrkin made four. Moe made a cou
ple of long shots, as did allor, but the
feature shot of the evening was
Romig-s much-disputed toss from the
middle of the floor,
Montana rushed the Muscovites off
their feet early In the game, scoring
six points before the visitors woke up.
Then Moe and Evans tied the count,
and a long shot hy Hyde gave Idaho
the lead. Crouch dropped a pretty
throw into the net and Larkin brought
the lend to the home team with an
overhand toss, and the Bruins held it
until the half ended. 19 to 14.
Campbell's Work Sansationat.
Prescott's three field goals In the
second gave Montana what seemed to
he a safe lead, until Campbell cut
loose and made three sensational bas
kets. and Moe dropped one in from the
sidelines, tielng the count at 27 all.
Larkin made another field goal, Moe a
free throw, when Prescott was knocked
out and during the Intermission Romig
was substituted, promptly shooting the
field goal, which caused the dispute.

And the second v as the more patent
