Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 29, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 The Lethbritlgc Daily Herald, Monday. Aiif^iist 29,1910. AHOTTIME AFIER THE GAME Football Players and Follower^ Entertained at a Rousing Smoker �lie smoking concert gl ven od Sai-rtay night In the Caledonian Hall, Olyh Street,, by the I/ethbridge and diatrfct Football League in honor of the Calgary Callies, wi�8 Irom every atanOpolnt a success. The iiall was tilled witft supporters and enthusiasts f .the granft.old game and a right -jBerry time was enjoyed. I^iesidisnt A. E. Dupen, presided and. with bim upon tlie platform were vW, A; Buchanan, M. P. P., donor of tile, Bucbanan Shield, won this year ft�r applause and encores, "Beneath the Spreading Chestnut Tree." After Mr. Matthews had given-a splendid ex- ^lUMtlon of club swinglng.and Bert Vi-ner sung those two old favorites of !hl8, "It all Depends upon fJie Gee-Gee,' and "How They Sat Upon the Tack,' the event of the evening, the presentation of the Buchanan Shield ^ took place. President Dapenvremarked that the .^present was the second year that the Calllea had won the shield and he araoted to say that the executive was ^Mrticularly pleased with the way the t�tm bad carried Iself throughout the �aaon. With a bunch of players like the CaUles, he said, football in Leth-ibridge will never die. Mr. Bocbaoan In presenting . the shield, remarked that the present was the aeeood occasion upon which he had presented the shield to the team, the Caledonian Football Club. He couldn't say he was sorry that the same club had won it each year, because he believed that the best team bad again won. He was only sorry tluit they had not another victor>- to record in their match for the Bennett Shield with their Calgary fellow-coun-tjrj-nien. He wished to pay a tribute to the young men who had come to Canada from the mother country, from Kttgland and Scotland, that they were taking the lead in developing here. iUOfjA clean amateur sport, (applause.) Personally he had never played the game of football but had in the past taken considerable part In hockey and other games, and was keenly interested in all sports, particularly amateur ports. He then handed the Shield to Captain Anderson. Captain Anderson �aid on behalf of kis team, he had much pleasure in , accepting the shield, and they hoped to win It again next year. They also tioped to win the other trophies and he would promise thev would get the Bennett shield in ISlL J. B. Gibbon, President of the Leth-^*rtdge'Callies, next proposed fae -haaltb of the Calgary Callies, "by whom ,tjiey had just had the pleasure of abeing 'beaten." He . was very jH�Med to V^come'them to I>et.h t>ridge, altboug;h be regretted the re-mt of their match had not been the other way about.,Personally he looked ^npon the ^ a draw and^felt that ifnutwd onplaying an extra balffhour, time migHt. ba^e^been called at the nd of the;reguI^,?aeoond half, which �rould^haveJin^aittianotherf�match at Calgary.

Captain Haig, of the Calgary team, tiriefly thanked L,ethhridge for'the reception tendered them. In regard to their victory he had to admit they �weve very lucky In pulling it off. Mow-ever, ie hoBe;d*the Lethbridge Callies turn would come soon for they de-er%'ed it. The remainder of tic musical program waa then proceeded with, in the following order, each item being ox-cellently rendered and heartily received: Song-H. White.

Well, its no dis- local forwards. Moore bulged tlic nets grace, for that Calgar.v eleven are at close iiuartors. But, oh you referee sure of championship calibre. They I with the northern ideas of football were up against their hardest propo-! It must have been the rear view of sitlon for this year, so far at any rate, j the flying forwards that looked siis-when they clashed the other night picioiis to Delgatty. Anyway his de-with Lethbridge wearers of the this- cision was for au offside and not a tie. Two to one sounds good to most I goal, and the migiitiest factor in Cal- gary team luid been ^brought into play with telling effect. The rooters fairly liowled themselves hoarse with dissension, but the deed had been done iind Lethbridge had ttj endure the dc cision and hone for more leniency. Then as if to express their thanks to their referee, the Calgary forwards shot down the" line, and fleeting forms clothed in stripes manoeuvred in pow-wow style' about an inflated piece of leather, until as a result of : a brand of passing that originated I way up in the heart of Calgary City, ; Williraiison landed with such force on ;i pretty pass at close tiuarters that Hoss couldn't .see the dust-raiser. The smoke cleared away and the fans werp rewarded by seeing the hoys from Ihe north trotting placidly back to their home grounds-and the ball had found the nets. For the ne.^t few minutes Calgary continued to press heavily. The local defence put up a sterling game ;it this juncture, even as they did all through the game. JLethbridge here fell down for a time, inasmuch as the halves failed to feed the wings to an et|ual degree. Often the right wing w;is overworked, while Weymss and especially Oliver, waited in vain for a erj-thing he saw, but his optics were;chance to display' their tactics. The too small to grasp all of his home-j Calgary defence showed their knowl of the fans, to all of them it looked better. But to a great majority of them also, it appeared as if Calgary were playing twelve men. Delgatty proved a valuable addition to the wearers of the stripes when the latter got in a critical position. The ball was faced at 5:^0 p. m.. Lethbridge kicking off. The spheroid flew into Lethbridge territory and to Calgary fell the first shot. It was an easy one, however, and lacked scoring power. TJie play continued In l/Cthbridge ground, and after a series of close passes the boys from the north again shot, twice in rapid succession. But Boss froze unto their patented handouts and accounted quite nicely for their drives.- Then Lethbridge for the first time broke away on a fast rush. Weyms.s got under a nice pass and the crowd roared as he placed himself for a hot one. He wag stopped on the act by Dal-getty, who tooted his little horn, claiming an off-side. However, he regained the support of the fans for the time being, when one minute later he caught a Calgary culprit trying the same act. Quite possibly the referee caught ev-j town's handiwork, and they know that part of the game, too. Undoubtedly. C^algary has a heaiier team, and a forward line that put up a better class of combination than the local boys showed. They steadied the ball from the first and played a close edge of iho game here, as they fed the forwards wltb good effect, placing the b;i!l wherf opportunity left an opening. After 30 minutes of e.vciting play, the left wing at last got possession of the leather. They rushed down in a combination, using their heads witii! combination and passed over to cen- noticeable effect, it cannot be said that the game was rough. The chec!,-ing, though close and oftentimes heavy, was clean and always necessary, yuite a noticeable feature, and as commendable as ifwas noti'-eable, was the absence of hot air shotting among (re. It was lotted over the defence for a return, when following a series of backward passes, Oliver picked ,a drop from Page on the end of his boor, and cheers once again resounded as the ball eluded Strang's vicious grab at its dusty exterior, and the the pftyers. In that respect it far | score evened up. Nothing more very outclassed the Taber-Britt game of' 'I'uesday last. Following a foul kick Haig shot a grounder that roiled wide. His effort exciting happened during first half, and score stood 1-1 at sound of whistle. Xor did the second half change the score. The play during the second was duplicated next minute by Moore, i spasm was even more fast and fur-who swung heavy on a long shot from 1 lous than in the first, hut trj- as they left that failed to locate Strang's domain. Every player was working to win, and three minutes afterwards might, neither forward line could pro-(wards. nothing but justice to the local boys to state that they had their big share of the play. Dalgetty and his decisions came in during second half for some very reproachful epithets, but they failed to disturb the mental equilibrium of his official personage. To his credit it must be said that he was particularly sharp on fouls, nor must it be forgotten that he was at a discount in the estimation of the fans the result of his being a Calgary man. Towards the end of the last half the style of play lost its close nature and longer kicks, not so well placed, came into eminence. It was plain that each team was straining itself to the utmost to break the'tie, but such was not (o be. A sore disappointment awaited the home bunch, when again just as Wliyte was kicking a goal on the goal line, the shrill tones of the whistle proclaimed another offside, and no score. Full time sheet read 1-1. Fiften minutes each way, looked long enough for something to crop up. It turned up. too. and in the form of a score that broke the tie. but al.ts for Lethbridge; the gods luid smiled their approval on the Calgary kickers. The deed was done aboul five minutes after the attempt to break the tie, had started. It happened thusly: The bo.vs from the main line had been getfing the better of the play, and showing up Boss' blocking powers In good style. .-V series of passes brought the ball down close to this worth}- once a.?ain, and in the scrimmage "that followed .McKechnio picked the leather from the flying feet and bulged the Lethbridge nets, scoring number two. Lethbridge boys certainly strained a point in their last spasm to even up, but to no avail. Four or five times they all but succeeded, but iil-luck sat hard upon them. Their last chance faded into nothingness, when following a hard earned rush. Page's shot flew wide, and ended in a goal kick. It was a bitter pill but it had to go down and at the whistle proclaimed the game ended. Following are line-ups : Lethbridge-Boss, goal: Smith. Anderson, backs; Crawford, Whyte, Glenn, halves; Marr, Page, .Moore, Weymss, Oliver, forwards. Calgary-\V. Strang, goal; Deacon, Orindeley, backs; Hai^, Strang, W, Stewart, halves; Kenny, T.

ECKSTORM r-A.l�r�nf. -'The Anchor's '�*"J&Ble'� "The Albertan" In Saturday's issue pays the following excellent tribute to C. J. Eckatorm in reference to the action taken by the Western Canada League president in the supposed Ed-monton-Lethbridge frame-up of last Wednesday: 'Lot our readers turn lor a minute to the sporting page and things pertaining thereto. The Albertan would advise such a course every morning, That page is quite as interesting as the editorial page to a large number ot readers, ft ia more Interesting to some. It breathes of the vigorous young manhood of this western country, and shows the young man of the present, the hope of the future, in his brightest moods-that Is, at play. The sporting page should never be overlooked at any time by any person. Let US hope that none of us will ever get 80 far removed from the present day an to find no Interest in it. ISui is has a special interest today, I'hree cities-Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary-are neck and neck in toe racp for the hasebal pennant. But the i2(lmonton team, in order to beat C.ilgary and Winnipeg out, framed up with Lethbridge what seemed to he a very dishonest deal, by which they went out on Wednesdav afternoon and played three five-inning games, all in a row. Edmonton winning them tion, throwing out the entire series. He now threatens to punish the principals who were guilty of the suspicious rie:tl. Not only the athletic loving public, but the entire public, whlc^ approves of fair play, the syuure deai and upright conduct, will approve of the courageous and firm .stand taken b.v- the president . of this baseball league. Calgary, the sporting editor explains In a mass of figures, has nothing to gain by the action of the presi dent, and must win three games to get the pennant just the same eib it the games stood, so can judge dispassion ately upon tiie action of the president. President'Eckstorm, by this ope de cision, has dotie as much to place a higlier standard of honor in sports as many ambitious agencies have done in years. All honor to President Eck torm of the baseball league."
