The Reformer, $1.50 Yearly All the New Fair Sized Crowd 8aw the New Yorkers Downed by a Soore of 26-5 Printers Win From Y. M. C. A. Second Team In Preliminary Game. The locnl bnoketbnll season . was opened In Festlvnl .hall liiHt Friday evening when the Y. M. C. team defeated a quintet representing the Al bany, N. Y., Business college by a score of ?6-5 and the Hlldreth printers downed the apcond team of the asso ciation 15-8. A fair sized crowd was In attendance but its enthusiasm did not show Itself violently at any time. Neither of the games was as Interest ing as many that have been seen here In seasons past, but this was due prob ably to the fact that the players have not yet had sufficient practice to be In the very best condition. It was difficult to follow the game between the print ers and the Y. M. C. A. substitutes be cause of the heterogeneous collection of suits worn by the men. Nor was there sufficient team work on either side to show which team was which. Indeed, about the only feature of the game was the accurate basket shooting of V. Saunders who made his first ap pearance on a local floor. He seems to have the knack of taking Just enough time In throwing to get good aim and at the same time get the ball away be fore he is covered. His accuracy was largely responsible for the printers' victory. , The big game began after the first half of the preliminary contest, Brat tleboro being represented by Howe at center, March and Kills, forwards; Stafford and Ferriter, guards. John Tufts, one of last year's guards, played that position for Albany. None of the players seemed to have his sights adjusted properly during the first half, and although the home team had nearly twice as many chances to score as its antagonist It was only able to cage the ball three times during the play In that period which ended with the score 8-5 in favor of Rrattleboro. In the second half the Brattleboro players "got together" and displayed a little of their old time team work, scor ing 18 points to their opponents' none. Ferriter and Stafford did the most of the scoring, the former mnklng two ex ceedingly clever goals while running at full speed. March was accurate on free throws, nnd Howe filled the cen tral position effectively although he had an opponent who was Inclined to hold freely. Kills got into the team play pretty well but was not very sure in shooting. Incidentally a word might be said In regard to the' policy of the officials. They seemed to forget that basketball between two teams of husky athletes is apt to be a little more strenuous than squat tag. Flagrant fouling ought never to go unpunished, but the game Is robbed of all its excitement when double fouls ars repeatedly called be cause two players happen to shoulder each other in their zeal to win. There is no doubt that at times the game be tween Brattleboro and Albany was pretty rough, but there were only one or two cases of deliberate dirty work. To the majority of spectators the de lay caused by calling a foul detracts from the interest in the sport, espec ially when some excellent piece of team work is nipped in the bud there by. Certain offenses such as tripping, holding and running with the ball should be penalized promptly but the rule regarding unnecessary roughness will stretch considerably without breaking, as will also that concerning double fouls.
