Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE THREE: DN TEAM CHAI Pilling City Champion Trap Shot; Robinson of. Calgary Wins The Lethbridge Brewery Trophy Warner's hopes of calling them- selves amateur champions of Alberta, died hard last evening when in tho local hall yard the Champion squad annexed tlie sudden death fix- ture by the score of They camo from Champion auii champions they are. Five hundred wild-eyed fans wore on hand for tho game and they got more for their money than they expected. The game was a red-hot con- coction served up with all the frills and with as little hone on the side as possible. H was hotter than lots of the W. C. League hall we paid good money to see here in 'he days when we bail hired men gracing the dia- mond. Warner had met Champion at Cham- pion a week ago and the redonhuihle Slier, [linger [or the champs, -vas humbled in the dust Siler cume hack last r.ighl. He worked for a shut-out, hut it didn't come his way. Warner strengthened its defensive by bringing in the famous Lewis Bros.' battery from Taber, and they put up a beautiful brand of ball. The battery work all round last night was better Hiari Is served up much ot the time in Class D professional hall. From tho stand it looked as iC the breaks wore going against the War- ner crew. H was anybody's game at DV3ry stage of the clash but Champion got anything the god of luck had to It was the seventh before Warner a man past second. In that inning Berg led oft with a hit that he stretch- ed to a double on HOUIO slow retriev- ing. Gillies heat out a grounder when tile fielder took lilts time in order tu bold Ucrg at second. Mcllhaem smirk out and Graham poped to Buffon. Then 11. Lewis came ItiroilKh witll a hot Bingle and Berg and Gillies crossed the pan, and that was all for Warner. They never Uirentonwl thereafter, a double play In tho last killing off ;i indicator was ail to the merry. He called tho balls and strikes very fair and his base decisions were good. The big kick came from Warner when Hoyt pulled a long fly along tho third base foul line. Uraps called it a. foul and the Warner bunch howled bloody murder. It looked foul from the stand. There w" a big crowd on hand and as both teams were from the outside they rooted impartially and well. It was a joyful game after some of Ihe mournful exhibitions seen here this year. The box Luker, Ib........ bestow. which wasn't much. Line drives that looked good for safeties fell into the maw of some fielder's ]ultt, and the stuff was off, At that it was a little piece of bone that beat Warner. In the third after Hudson had been disposed of by a nice catch by Berg, Stepan erasked out a clean single. Hummel came up and pulled a grounder to Berg, who fielded It cleanly, all set to double Stepan up at second. Hoyt was asleep nt the switch, however, and failed to cover second, with the result that Bore hesitated before throwing to first and Hummel -was gate, populating first and second. Lewis disposed of.' CUn- dal by the strike-out route, but Buffan banged out a beauty just beyond Gra- ham's reach, it went for two bags and two runners scored. Had Hoyt been on the job. Stepan and Hummel could easily have been disposed ot by a double play and the side would have been out. It was a boner. Champion added another in the sev- enth. Whitting hit a hard ona at Joe Gillies who fielded it, but in his hurry throw wide to first and Whitting was safe. He reached second on Hanson's out. Gillies to Luker, anil scored when Slier cracked a single. Champion's scoring. That ended llarrv Pilling Is city trap siioollns chansplonan'ip twine In succession.
