Opening High School Basketball Game (scrimmage)

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Morton Enterprise December 10, 1920

A large crowd of enthusiastic fans turned out to witness the basketball game between the high school students Tuesday evening. The game was well fought, clean and full of pep throughout, showing the good sportsmanship of the players. The “Lame Ducks” put up a good fight the first half, defeating the “Windless Wonders” 8 to 6. In the second half the “Windless Wonders’ got their second wind and by good team work rolled in the five baskets and held their opponents scoreless. The final score was 16 to 8 in favor of the “Windless Wonders.” Good team work was one of the leading features of the game.
The Seventh and Eighth grades furnished the audience with an interesting game between quarters. Louie Carruth and Don Castle starred on their respective teams. This game shows the wonderful material Morton has for a basketball team in the future.
