Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LItMiftlbdE, ALTA., MONDAY, MAY 1, IMS. SPORTS BALL TEAM TO BE HERE SOON The end of this week will in all likelihood sec the Lethbridge profes- sional ball team in their home city. They are now congregating in St. Paul and Minneapolis and are ready to commence their journey west at any moment. They have such good training grounds at the twin cities that it has been thought best to al- low them take all the benefit they could by remaining there until it is imperative for them to leave in order to get here a few days before the league opens. May 12th. Jack Corrigan, writing from St. Thomas College, St. Paul, the train- ing quarters of the ,ball team, says that although the wea- ther has not permitted his team to have as much outdoor playing as he would like, he nevertheless feels con- fident that every player will be in perfect physical condition to play the opening game. Manager Corrigan states that no better training quar- ters could be procured than those of St. Thomas; College. There is a swell gymnasium, fine shower .baths, and perfect diamond to play ball on. Conditions of this class fills the boys full of ginger and the way they get down to good hard work does the manager's h'oart good. Corrigan becomes more pleased with hiu line-up every- day and has uvcry confidence of making a pennant winning showing with htt aifgrpffn- tion right from "the start. Those who are posted on the liue- up of the various teams of the lea- gue know' that Medicine Hat is to be seriously reckoned with. In fact, they are looked by many as the leaders of the race, but those who tire intimately acquainted with the Lethbridge players and know Jack Corrigan say that Medicine Hat will have to go at a big league clip to beat Lelhbridge. However, the Hat surely has a good bunch there should be -some great exhibitions of ball pulled off here on the 12th .when the Gasnieters and the Coal Miners clash. WEST MONARCH V. EAST MONARCH CALGARY TEAM COMPLETED That Spring Tiredness Can't last after you've taken a box or two of They've proved a boon to thousands why not you? For sale by ALBERTA DRUG CO, (Albertan) With the "signing of Standridge, a Vancouver pitcher, and Gouchee, the catcher. Manager Crist has complet- ed his team. And he is well satisfied with the aggregation and the fans who have followed the game closely are well satisfied with the aggrega- tion. Standridge is a good one, and Cal- gary borrows him for tae season, but he is subject to recall until the end of the season. He is regarded quite as good as any' of the five pit- chers that Vancouver has, but tlw others are the old- heads, with more experience. Calgary and Alberta fans know Del Gouchee and are very pleased to see him wearing a Calgary uniform. He is a good ball player. He catches ll, fields well, and is a good stick- er. The team as it stands at present is as follows Catchers, Kelly7 Gouchee. Pitchers, Standridge, Kiiialy, Crist Vining, Padfield, Goodman. Infield, Zwicker, Chandler, Rochon, Mills, Baker. Outfield, Parkes, Wheeler, Baker, Reeves, Conrad. The weeding out process will soon begin, and the team will probably reduce to thirteen by the middle of the month. MEDICINE HAT LOOKS GOOD Though Medicine Hat the call throug-hout the league as the prob- able pennant winner, the men who know both teams are quite satisfied that Calgary has a better team as they stand today. Of course Medi- cine Hat has some very good, men, and if weak in any spot, will doubt- less be strengthened. But as they ;tand todaj' the Calgary team looks stronger than the Medicine Hat team. -Calbary Albertan. A large crowd turned out on Mon day evening to witness the first lea gue football match of the season The weather was all that could bo desired and the ground in excellent shape. The teams looked very well in theh new suits. Kick off was made by Blanchard, centre for West Monarch, at 7 p.m prompt. In the first half play to commence was slow but of a very scientific character, several smart pieces oi play being made by both teams. After ten minutes' play the referee declared a penalty in favor of East Monarch, which was taken by Sand- gate, who failed to score. Play now became fast; Tyler, of West Mon- acch, with a brilliant pass to Mich- ael, who in turn re-passed to Tyler, scored the first goal for West Mon- arch. At this point of the game a difference of opinion arose between Blanchard and Lee, which nlScessitat- ed the referee placing the offending parties off piay for three minutes. Towards half time Humphries, of East Monarch, with a clever pass to Dickman, who with a, brilliant shot at goal mouth, 'caught the ball on its rebound from the post and nicely landed the first goal far East Mon- arch. Half time the score was even. In the last half play was of a most exciting character, West and. East clashing together fast and furious. E. Brown, of West Monarch, claim- ed a foul off Dickman, who in the referee's opinion was at fault. Brown who was unable to play for a space of five minutes, was delighted to see his side score off a neatly made pass [from Cougill to Lee. j Towards the end of the last half IWest Monarch made some very clever shots mouth but Anderson, with the assistance of Ross, who j played full -back for East Monarch, was equal to every well shot. With only three minutes to play and the score in favor of West Monarch, the game became very hard for the referee to control. The- crowd grew excited and the shouts nearly drowned the sound of the referee's whistle. But a smart piece of play on the part of East Monarch, who had attacked again and again with- out success, were rewarded for their perseverance by seeing one of the op- posing side land the ball in his own goal. At this point the whistle blew ami a much enjoyed game ended in a draw. i The line-up was as follows East Monarch: Anderson, Hum- phries, Fisher, Ross, Buchanan, Dick- A M I II I 0 forc1' stratbcoua- Will AlTl I Hon.

Both teams played clean football and no deliberate fouls were made, and .the best of feeling prevailed. It might be said the Cowlcy boys would do well to play their positions bet- ter and check a little closer. There was a disposition to stop playing when a foul was noticed instead of waiting for the umpire's whistle. The best authorities agree that cigar- ettes are not good to train on. The umpire, J. A.
