Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 6 THE LETHKKIUGk DAILY HERALD ALL THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS NEW CHAMPION BOXER OF THE LIGHTWEIGHT DIVISION n___ _ Adolph Wolgast Relegated to the Has Been-" Glass by Fouling Willie Richie in Sixteenth Round-Champion About "All in" when Disqualified by Referee AD WAS WEAK IN LEGS-RITCHIE IN BEST CONDITION Ritchie Badly Bruised and Wolgast Had the Advantage Until the Deciding Round-At Opening of Sixteenth Richie Drove Home "Haymaker" to the Face and Road to Possession of Title was Open to New Asperant San Francisco, Sal., Nov. patience of Willie Ritchie, the San Francisco lightweight, was rewarded today, when at two o'clock the song started him on'his twenty.round fight -with champion Ad Wolgast at' Cof- arena in Daly City. The local youngster had waited Iong for a chance to sbow his mettle, and assured his friends that he tcok the lightweight king's measurements on the day when he boxed 'four smashing rounds with him in this city. Ritchie overlooked many a good pugilistic business proposition in or- der to get this match with the cham- pion. When the papers were signed he was as happy as a youngster with a new hobby horse. How Ritchie Won Daly City, Cal., Nov. Ritchie, of 'Sac Francisco, became the lightweight champion of the world by defeating Ad Wolgast this afternoon at the Daly City open air arena, Re- feree Jim Griffin awarding him the de- cision in the sixteenth round. Wol- gast had fouled him twice. The cham- round, Ritchie catching him with a right cross that came as unexpected- ly as did the foul hloivs. Wolgast tot. tered about the ring, but the Cali- fornlan apparently lacked the power to land a finishing punch. Both men were strong at the end of the fif- teenth round, and each had suffered considerable punishment. Ritchie presented a battered appearance. One of his-eyes was entirely closed and the other partly so. The fight was In Wolgast's favor up to the turn- Ing point In the sixteenth round. Wolgasf's Condition Poor Wolgast seemingly was lacking in condition. In the round before the finish his legs were so heavy he could hardly lift his feet from the mat, while Ritchie, fresh and breathing perfectly, danced around his puffing adversary, and pecked him with straight? lefts. Wolgast says-he did not intentionally foul Ritchie, and that he thinks it is a poor way to nient. Wolgast he said, after the fight. "Ritchie was rough, and -when 1 first sot in trouble lit the sixteenth It was from his throwing me against the ropes instead of Slitting mo. 1 would be will- Ins to fight him again tomorrow." lioth Wolsast and Ultchio weighed in in their dressing robes lit 2.10 o'clock and each was easily below th0 stipulated figure, !33 pounds ringside. Odds of six and a half to were offered at this stage. Ritchie short end money preponderated. Ritchie was the first to enter the ring. Wolgast followed half a; min- ute later. Ritchie was the only .one of the two principals that was given a semblance of a reception. No time was lost in introducing the fighters. Referee Tom Grifnn called the men to their corners. Tho ring was order- ed cleared and time called at 2.47 o'clock. Ritchie Draws Blood Round with the men fighting close, scored several times to the head and face before the cham- pion essayed .the offensive. They mixed fiercely in a neutral corner and the scored the first blood as a result of a succession of short win a championship.

I., Nov. Thorpe, one of the most versatile Indian athletes ever developed at the government school at Carlisle, Penn., played football In a blaze of glory on Andrew's field today, when the In- dians, principally through their lead- er's individual' play, defeated Brown, 63 to 0. Thorpe was in nearly every play. both on tic offence and defence, ir.ade three of the five touchdowns, and kicked two goals. His only failure of the day was in his endeavors to kick field goals, which were difficult, because of the slippery snow covered field and wet ball. Brown rushed the ball to 'within half a yard of the Indians' goal line, and Tenney went over, but there was no score because of offside play. Thorpe made several long runs from forward passes, and from kick forma- tions. Five minutes before the game ended he caught a forward pass near the centre of tile field and ran thirty yards. A ten yeards' dash around Browns' forwards, and then Thorpe plowed through the Brown line for the final touchdown, which he turned into a goal. The playing of bashbaugh and Crowther was the feature-of the game. COAST HOCKEY TEAMS READY FOR OPENING i The coast hoc-key league teams arc ready to commence hostilities on 10th Dec-ember.
