BASKET BALL TEAM
GOLS TO GLENWOOD
Plattsmouth Tries Their Skill
With Glenwood and and Win
by a Score of 28 to 19.
From Saturday a Dally.
The IMatlsnioulh basket ball
team last evoning journeyed over
to our neighboring city of Glen
wood and proceeded to take the
basket ball tea m down the line to
the tune of 28 to 19. The (Jlen
wood team was; clearly outclassed
by the whirlwind performance of
our boys, as thoy started right af
ter the Iowa team and the score
at the end of the first half stood
10 to 5, and in the second they ad-
d to the score already piled up.
Don Arries, captain of the local
team, was the chief scoremaker
for Platt.smoulli, and the Glen
wood boyrt were simply unabje to
stop his throwing baskets when
ever the opportunity presented it
self f. The w hole team was in good
form, there never being a minute
when the game seemed in doubt
and the bows deserve great credit
for the splendid manner in which
they rcpresent'.ed the city school.
The boys returned home this
morning on A'o. 15, feeling very
much clalcd ovor the result of the
game, and they have good cause
to, as the Glenwood team is a
good, fast one and it was only the
uperior playing of the local boys
ami their hard (work that won
hem the contest.
The basket ball team this year
is one ot tne nest mat nas rep
resented the school in late years,
and they have made a great show
ing, having played some of Ihe
strongest teams in Ibis part of the
country, and then record is one
that I hey may he proud of and the
citizens should tako great pride m
their basket ball team and when
ever Ihe opportunity is offer
give it their heart iet support.
