Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETJIBRIDGE DAITAr IIERALP Wednesday, August ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS OVERSEAS ELEVEN FAIRLY OUTCLASSEDJT. CYPRIANS But the Saints Bitterly Contested Every Inch of the Knockout in Scott Challenge Clip 5-1 The first round of tho series o( (Hatches for the beautiful soccer tro- phy, presented by R. Scott, of the Olty Bakery, opeiwd last night, at the Bull Park. There "was a good-sized crowd present, and those that thought it would just be a procession were badly left, and missed a good game, If the Overseas went on the field thinking they had' an easy thing in the St. Cyprian's, they soon found out their mistake, for right from the kick- off the Saints began to press, and it soon seen that they had some team. Overseas scored in about fifteen minutes, and, instead of the Saints setting any notion of a heat- ing into their heads, they went at the enemy harder than ever, and it was plainly seen' that the champs were all they could take care of. The spec-tators held their breath when James, the inside left of the Cyps, took a pot shot at goal, Patterson miislnff the ball entirely, and a sure score ifas misaod by about two in- ches. Ths O. S. made a desperate ef- (ort to inoremae their lead, and would hare ewlly done so, but for the splen- did defence of the Bible Class. But the thrill of tho game came -when Hooker, taking the ball down the left 'with the assistance of James, caught the sphere rjsbt on the goal line, and put In the prettiest centre Been here this season, dropping just inside the bar, and Wilson rushing in made no mistake; Sumner was beaten, and the score tied. Shortly after Brennan put his side one ahead, and half-time arrived with the score: O.S., 2; St. Cyprian's, 1. Overseas In Beit Form In the second half it was evident that the Overseas were in far better condition than their opponents, and their heavy charging and dash proved too much of a task for the little fel- lows. They fought 'the game out to it finish, antl a score of 5 to l does not represent the game. Early in the second half Jock Mullen put in beautiful shot, which hit the upright and rebounded into play. After some pretty an the part of the O. S. forward line, Brennan succeeded in notching another point for his side. Holberton, for the Saints, was playing the game in great style, and repeated- ly foiled the rushes of the Seas, while Hawkins in goal outshone the rest of the field, and put up an excellent exhibition. It remained for big Jock to finish the tallying for the victors, scoring two goals within ten minutes of each other. The game, after this, "Was played somehow or other in the darkness, neither the referee nor the fans 'being able to follow it, and about all that could be seen from the stand was the dim figures running up aivd down the field. Home and terson; Cauldwell, Mullen and Hatker- ston; Bannerman, Thompson, Bren- an, Turner and Joyce. St. Holberton and Cramner, Palmer and Doyle; Turner, Wilson, Short, James and Hooker. The Overseas now play St. Mary's in the semi-final. Lethbridge Fair Races This Year to Sport Indispensible Starting Gate Last year .the. Lethbridge Exhibi- tion races were marred very much by the lentfthy intermissions between "the races and the bad starting. The intermissions .rJwere abominable, and the starts worse, especially the run- ning: events, which on more than one occasion each day took more. than hilf an hour to get the horses away. It Js te be hoped that the same will hot occur again this year, and, in fact, there is every reason to 'believe that they won't. Secretary McNicol, of.the Fair association, says that the circuit has a -competent professional starter engaged, .who is sure to give the best of satisfaction, and, best a? all, he is 'comins provided with a starting gate for the running races, a utility that is indlspensible on a race- tMCk.

The affair has been postponed through a mishap to one of Oldfield's racing cars. However .there Is hope of the world's famous drivers yet being seen here. Orvllle A.

Oldfield's Christie and Cino are all right, but his Benz machine was put out of commission at Begins and could not be repaired In tlrno to show here Thursday, so Oldtletd's manager thought a postponement would be preferable to an Inferior" exhibition. Mr. Hurst promises to return to Lethbridge at the the waek when he will be in a position to giye put the program for the exhibition at the fair grounds Wednes- day next. There was every evidence of the city turning out en masse to the races tomorrow and there will be much disappointment, if anything should step in snd hinder them next week.
