Phone 2 O’Neill, Nebraska
This is my first of a series of
articles on Sports which I hope to
be entertaining to the sports fans
of O’Neill and community.
Let’s get right down to bus
iness. First, just take the record
of O’Neill High. So far this sea
son the Eagles have played two
games and have won them both.
That is a good record even though
Elgin and Ewing both gave the
Eagles quite a fight.
Now turn to Saint Mary’s Card
inals. So far this season the Card
inals have played five games, won
three and lost two, but both
games they lost to Page and In
man were both by only two
points. The Cardinals have a
pretty fair team this year.
Now, the Holt County Tourna
ment. I am writing this on Tues
day and so I have no way of
knowing how they will come out.
Here are my selections for the
tournament, and I hope that I can
pick them at least half right:
In the upper bracket of the
tournament we find the first game
pretty evenly matched, but we
are going to give the nod to Saint
Mary’s over Page, although Page
beat them 18 to 16 early in the
season. Chambers drew a bye in
the first round.
In the semi-finals of the upper
bracket we find, if our past se
lection was right, it’s Saint Mary’s
against Chambers. Here we pre
dict another win for the Cardin
als and they will have then won
their way into the finals.
Let’s take the lower bracket.
(The lower bracket doesn’t mean
that the team in the lower bracket
aren’t as good—it is just the way
they were picked).
We find Ewing playing St. Jos
eph of Atkinson, and we pick the
boys from Ewing because the St.
Joseph team is young and needs
more experience, although St.
Joseph will put up a good fight.
In the other game O’Neill will
take Inman. O’Neill will not find
Inman an easy team to beat, but
they should take it.
In the seini-finals in the lower
bracket we find the Ewing quintet
against O’Neill and we predict the
Eagles to do it again. The Eagles
won their first game with Ewing
this year 28 to 22 but they had a
hard fight all the way, so it should
be a close game.
Now for the finals: We have
predicted for the finals the two
O’Neill teams to play and this is
a hard one to pick, because we
don’t want our head blown off
The Eagles, as we said, are unde
feated in two games and the
Cardinals have won 3 out of 5
and this will really be the big
game of the tournament and the
only way I can think of to
make a big difference is the Card
inals’ lack of reserves. Of course
they have plenty of men but their
reserves are not seasoned enough
to withstand the Eagles’ attack,
and the Eagles seem to have a lit
tle better reserves than the Card
inals from St. Mary’s. We expect
it to be a top-notch fight and we
are sure that you will get your
money’s worth, but I select to
take, for the second straight year,
the Holt County Tournament,
Well, now before I close, I want
to tell some of you sports fans if
you are wondering about some of
the best college basketball teams,
you will have to put Creighton
very near the top of your list. So
far Creighton is undefeated and
has played a tough schedule.
But remember, now, “it isn’t if
you won or lost, but how you
played the games.”
