THE SIL VER GRILL Lethbridge Won Coveted Game From' Blairmore By Two To One; Record Crowd Saw Fast Hockey 4KMRT1NC AH Lethbridge Players Excelled Game Under with Help of Boucher and Billy Henderson, Scored Both Knee Severely Crowd Un- able to Get Into Rink. DISTRICT HOCKEY LEAGUE STANDING Lethbridge won. The score was two to one. Before the largest crowd of hockey-mad fans ever gathered together in Lethbridge the local boys played the best game of hockey of this season and took the Blairmore champions into camp by a score of two to one. Gordon Reber, with the assistance of Boucher and Billy Henderson, scored the two goals. Barbour scored the only tally for Blairmore. It was estimated that two thousand people saw the game. Blairmore representatives handed a written no- tice of protest to Dr. Connor before the game started. The reason given for the protest was the fact that Lethbridge was playing Grant, who, the Blairmore men claim, has no Tight to play in the Crow's Nest League. Whether Blairmore wins their protest or not, Lethbridge has this much satisfaction: they have de- feated the league leaders and have shown they 'are the best team in the league. Blairmore shut out Cole- man when those teams last met and last night Leth- bridge beat Blairmore in a game that should have finished three to nothing. Lethbridge played hockey. So did Blairmore. It was hockey all the way. The checking was as hard as it possibly could have been and remain within bounds. Blairmore was "out to put Boucher away. They handled him rough all the time but they did not overcome his wonderful stamina. i 4 Coleman Blairmore LETHBRIDGE Taber Pincher Creek Macleod..... Won. Lost.

At 9 19 Boucher passed the nuek to Reber for the fint score of the game. Boucher had a splendid "rush up the Ics from the defence position and had dot past the big defence men.

Coleman will be without Jewel tat their Plncher game and that should make some difference and It Is more than likely that will hive to play without Barhour or the de-' fence.
