Last fall the rugby enthusiasts Very nearly succeeded in making the gamo a go here, and Lethbridge was talked of as one of (the possible teams in an intermediate league with Calgary and Edmonton. The necessary ginger was not in evidence at the. nropnr ;ime, however, and again the game ictertd out. This year things promise to take on a different turn. There are enough old rugby players in the city now, who want.- to don their armour once more, to make the game go this time f the right start is made.

Overseas 2 goals; S. O. B. 2 goals. This was out- come of the final senior 'City -league fixture at the ball park last before a crowd of nearly three hun- dred soccer enthusiasts. The game was peculiar in some respects as the score does not by any means reflect a true index of the play. The Seas kicked with tlie sun in their eyes and immediately went into the Sons territory only to be beaten back. The first few minutes' play was somewhat desultory 'but soon .got their 'bearings, and r drew first blood with, a ,'tantalizing shot which Coles only partially stopped. Joyce later tried to duplicate the trick but the Sons goalkeeper cleared his charge easily. The bulk of the press- ing was now' being done by the Seas who worried'.'their opponents time after time. Brennan, who was ithe bright and-shilling, star of the Seas forward line, intercepted a pretty pass from' Bannerman's boot and quickly beat Coles with goal number two. Home for the Seas was playing a valiant game and stopped several lightning rushes'of the Sons. That clever little player Bestwick, of the Sons, was working like A trojan and after beating our old Mend Jock Mullen in a terrific sprint, shot to- wards Sumner for a ecoro, but the sphere rolled past the danger zone. Towards the close of the initial half the Sons woke up and banged into the Seas defence with dogged deter- mination, only to be repelled by Sum- ner and Company. The concluding period was wholly in favor of the Sons, who simply played the Seas off their feet and not 'been for poor shooting they would have doubled the score beyond the shadow of a doubt. As it was, Billy Holherton and Parker both scored from -effective work on the part of Bestwick: With the score a. tie, two goals each, the Sons contin- ued to electrify the play and it was Reds Win Clone Game Brooklyn, July, Cincinnati took the final snmo at tlio series from Brooklyn -today by 5 to 4. but hud lrn rtlnyiin irlntnwu It Thn tennis see-suwed for sovou inning and then battled evenly up .to th linul. whon Bonton won his game b: scoring on his double and Marsau' single, Smith's all-round playing Wheat's drive over the fence for t homerun and Hoblitell's two triple were features.
