VOL xxvm SISSETON H.S.TEAM WINSONE liOOAlit PLAY LKMMON FIRST DAY OF TOURNAMENT, HOOHE 37-14 IN FAVOR OF 8. H. 8. TEAM. /Second Day Sisseton Played Sturdy Selby Team, Bat Found Going More Difficult Final Score 41-81 in Favor of Sdby. In the first day of the tournament the local high school team took the sturdy Leramon team into camp to the tune of 27-14. In the first haif the boys showed speed and some splendid team work that won for them considerable admiration and a rating amongst the taster teams competing for honors. The forward Renter triangle struck their regular [form and stride and scored quite regularly. Mahoney scored five field goals and three free throws Plut four and Stapleton three field goals. Owing to the aggressive playing of the center the guards did not get up Into the forward section as fre quently as usual, and Minder did not get his usual two or more goals. Scoring for the Lemmon team was also quite equally distributed -among the forwards and center. •-They outweighed the locals consid «rably, but lacked somewhat in science and finish. The Selby team, to which the lo cals lost on the following day, was likewise heavier though In the opin ion of dopsters not as finished. Our boys had been doped to win this game in a rather hard fought bat tle. The team, however, failed to strike their stride in the first half «f the game thereby permitting Sel by to get considerable- lead. In the second half they came back strong and both out played and out scored the opposing team, but -it was too late to win victory from defeat. The score at the end of the first half was 27-5 and at the end of the game 41-21 in favor of Selby. The Selby team have for some time been in Charge of a coach recently from Minneapolis and should have been Quite up-to-the-minute in science of the game. Dame rumor circulated much noise in their favor before any of the games began. With them they had a large following of root ers including the superintendent •nd the major part of the high school as well as many of the prom inent fans of their city. Future Look* Bright The greatest thing that was ac complished for the locals and that which speaks well tor the showing they made is the fact that next year we can get on the schedules of the best teams in the district. Coaches and managers of Redfield and Clark have promised us dates for a south ern trip. Aberdeen,- Selby and Mo bridge for a western trip and we have the main line from Mllbank to Aberdeen for short trips. Some of these can be scheduled with re turn trips and some without. What this means to our team for next year 'cannot be over estimated. It is val uable, first because, it will save us a rating with the beBt teams of the district on basis of schedule sec ondly, it will acquaint us with the Individuals and with the style of play of the teams we shall have to meet later in the tournament third ly, it will bring to Sisseton some of the best teams of the district, thus enabling the local fans .to see, at a very moderae cost, the latest, most scientific, and finished style of play fn the state during the season. This ought to lend a great deal of en couragement to the prospective players for next season as well as a great deal of real live enthusiasm to the school and the cltlsens of Sisseton. To use a common expres sion, it is a long stride towards get ting the school and city on the map. Are yon going to boost, or will you fee content to merely let George do ft? Why not ALL do It?
