BETTER TEAM WON;
TACOMA SHY 'PEP'
(BY CIIAJUJCS GRATTAX.)
Tacoma High is out of the
championship race and here only
solace now is to take a fall out of
the three Seattle teams, starting
with Broadway next Saturday.

ciding defeat last Saturday when
it fell before the huskies from

From the time the locals came
onto the field for practice it was
evident that something was wrong
—the old dash was lacking. They
tried to fight, but didn't seem to

not gain. They were slow get

Everett's line proved Btrong on
offense, also. It ripped holes In
Tacoma'» line wide enough to let

the hole*. But the very points
upon which Everett had expected
to win the game (Tacoma'B abil

fumble) were tho ones where they
themselves were weakest.

tried to nuike good her threat to

At the start of the game it was
all Everett. Eight minute* after
'Coblentz' kick-off the ball was
rimhed over the line for a touch
down but goal was missed. Late
in the second quarter Everett
worked the ball down the field by
rushes and forward passes to Ta

were held for two down* only to
