ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS SAINTS WERE TRIMMED 4-1 Outclassed by Overseas in Scott Cup Match Last Night Overseas 4; St. -Mary's 1. This was the outcome of the semi- final fixture for the Scott cup .between these teams at the ball park last evening before a slim crowd. game was advertised to start at 6.30 but as -usual the players were. late In getting down to business. St. Mary's won the toss and naturally elected to kick with the sun in their backs.-The Seas during the initial stages of the game kept the Saints pretty much on the defensive but the boys in white disclosed a clever front and succeed- ed for a time in keeping their.formid- able opponents from scoring. The friss an excellent chance for a score from a penalty but it was not so to be and luck travelled with the Saints for the time being. The Seas not extending themselves al- though the Saints wefe lesome. Jock'' Mullen got possession of "the ball and fcreezed along at a mile a minute'clip in an effort to score but there was nothing doing for poor John. However, a few seconds later Parker, who by the way .is now a full fledged Overseas player, scored thVflrit goal of the match which the Saints goalkeeper had no earthly chance to save. It is Just as well to note here that the Overseas were very much to bad in their shooting, which stood out in marked contrast to some clever work on the part of Saints Rrst line of defence and forward, iine. The Overseas, however proved their stamina by holding the Saints well in check. The first half ended with the- score standing one goal to nil in favor of the Seas. .The finaLhalf found.the city league champions doing the bulk of the press- ing and to make.sure work they, add-, edj another jthiee goals while the Saints Hot past Sumner once from ;a .penalty kick which bwt the Seas goalkeeper squarely. Tha- Saints young goalkeeper, Kno-widen, is to be warmly commended for some very effective stops made at close quarters "while th'e other members of the team like Trojans. St. -Marys were beaten by a more experienced'team, hut they acquitted themselves with credit. .The game wos finished in darkness with the score standing: Overseas 4 goals, Saints 1 goal. The following were'the teams: Overseas: Sumner; Patterson and Home: Cauldwell, Mullen and Halk- erston Simm, Thomson, Brennan, Parker and Joyce. it Mans Knowlden; Ness and Field: C. Farrant, Wrenn and A. Mat- thews Olnj ton, Holland, Dijcon, P. Farrant and Collins. R. Tennant. made an efficient re- feree Final on Thursday The great game now will be the final for the Scojt cup on Thursday evening at the ball park between tire Overseas and the Callies. It is to be hoped that the officials will see to it tint the game starts promptly at 6.30 that both teams will get all the daylight going. These delays in start- ing games are getting somewhat tire- some and it might 'be a good idea to cultivate the habit of- punctuality. Someone might with advantage bor- row a broom and clean up the grand- stand a-bit. It's a disgrace as it now appears. AMERICAN CRICKET TEAM LOST TO ENGLISH jil.

HILLCREST ELEVEN WENT DOWN BEFORE BELLEVUE -Hilicrest, Alta., Aug! friend- .y game of football was played last Saturday evening between the two first teams of Hilicrest and Bellerue an.'the latter team's ground, Hellevue winning 2-0. Hilicrest kicked oR and mmcdiatcly started out to find the weak spots in the home team's de- fence 'arid' after considerable -.pressing decided, that the defence'was, barring acci'dehls, unbeatable, for Bellcvuc wai playing their star goal-keeper, Muleoon, who, with the renowned Bellevue hacks, never allowed the vis- itors a chance at the goal. Alter some !ten minutes o! play, during which llillcresi was on the offensive the Thole; time, the Bclleyue for- wards nude a sprint towards the Hilicrest goal and after considerable passing backwards and forwards the visitors' defence nnd scored the first goal of the game. Seeing how tilings were shaping the Hillcresters played a more defensive, game, only making occasional dashes up the field, endeavoring-to tire out the formid- able .forwards on the home team. The play, rtn.aiaed around cen- tre field during the remainder of the first half and was rather easily taken by both teams. No more scoring was done and at half .time the score was standing at 1-0 in the home team's favor. Towards the middle of the second half the Hilicrest defence seemed to jo to pieces and Bellcvue, very oppor- tunely having control of the ball at the time, managed to place another goal. 'After the second goal was scored against them the visitors play- ed an. extremely last game, letting the defence look after their own af- fairs and pressing the- Bcllevuc goal all the time. Owing to the compre- hensive combination work done be- tween the Hellevue men the visitors (ailed to score and. when "Scotty" i Houston called the game, on account i of darkness the. result of the game was two goals in the home team's favor to the big cipher representing the Hillcrest winnings. Ily winning this game Hellevue paid off the 'debt they owed to HUicrest when the lat- ter tr-am beat the former in Hilicrest some three HO by, 1-0, BRUCE RIDPATH HANDS OUT, SOME VALUABLE HINTS TO THE PADDLERS linico Ridpath. tlw peerless canoe performer, who has already been finds himself still weak from tho accident which overtook' him last fall In Toronto. The noted hock- ey star and canonist has not -done anything with a canoe from that day until Monday evening last when1 he wont to Henderson lake and gave hjm- self a try-out In a borrowed canoe'. 'He found himself so much out of practice and lacking In strength from his on- forced lay-off that iie will not .be able to accoihmodate bis friends and ad- mirers here who hnvo no urgently re- quested him to give ono of his' cele- brated canoe performances at the lake during his visit to the city. Bruce; in talking to the Herald said it- would take him a considerable space' of 'tin's to get in condition for the work and he .will be leaving Lethbridge at the end of the week.
