and placed tinnselves several points
nearer the county championship.
()mak was hindered by the loss of sev
eral of their players. but they put up
an lntt-restimtr fight for all of that.
They are a game little bunch and we.
wish them well against Okunogan for
the last game of the season. The two
teams fought hard. with Oroville
the best. possibly on the aggres
sive by reason of her aerial
attack. Ervin Curtis carried the ball
over for two of Oroviilc’s three touch
downs. ()mak made here traditional
stone wall defense against the Horn
t-ts when they threatened the Omak
goal and finally punted out of danger
when ’i‘om lost the hall on a fumble.
The game ended to the satisfaction of‘
both teams by a score of 19 to 6. By
accident or coincidence this is the sec
ond time Oroville has beaten the
down-river team by that score.
