The local high school met its first
defeat Friday, October 17th, at the
hands of Ainsworth, 13 to 6. The
game was hard fought and for the
most part weak played.
The fact that Ainsworth outweighed
the O. H. S. fifteen pounds per man
caused the latter to resort more or less
to an open style game.
Ainsworth first score came after
they had secured the ball on O’Neill's
forty yard line and had marched down
the field for a touch down. In the try
for point they were successful in an
O’Neill scored early in the second
quarter on a cleverly executed play—
a tripple pass resulting in Hunt’s
skirting the end for eighty-five yards
and a touch-down. He was aided
nicely by Hall on interference.
The final counter came for Ains
worth as a result of a bad pass from
center going out of bounds on O’Neill’s
eight yard line. At the end of the
fourth down the ball was barely over.
The try for point failed.
The last quarter found O .H. S. car
rying the ball well into Ainsworth’s
territory only to lose it as a result
of costly penalties and intercepted
The encouraging part was the np
ticeable improvement in play over
that in the Ewing game.
To pick out anv star for the game
would be unfair to the other players
for they played as a team.
