Morton Town Team Wins Close Game at Fairfax Friday

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Morton Enterprise November 28, 1919

The town Basketball quint journeyed to Fairfax and played the fast team of that place defeating them 26 to 17.
Both teams showed plenty of speed but passing and shooting were far from accurate. The first half ended 4 to 1. Donlon and Fadden each scoring a field goal and Frank of Fairfax a free throw. The second half both teams displayed better work and the score increased.
Fairfax will come here in the near future with the intention of taking us to defeat. Watch for posters.
Mgr. Daun is arranging games with the neighboring towns and a number of fast games will be played here.
