Sensational spurts coming at the
right time enabled the Multnomah Club
hockey players to trounce the Waverly
Country Club septet, 9 to 1, in the
Portland Ice Hippodrome last night.
The contest was by far the most excit
ing yet played in the Portland Ama
teur Hockey League, although the score
was the largest yet registered.
Very little individual work was done
on either side, each aggregation rely
ing on its teamwork to help it along.
The score at the end of the first half
stood 4 to 0, but at the opening of the
second period Forbes shot one past
Goaltender Herman for the first and
only score made by Waverly Country
The high point-scorer of the evening
was Uksila, who registered 5 points for
Multnomah, one in the first canto and
the other in the last period. The only
penalties called so far in the league
were made last night when Referee Mc
Donald sent Kearns and Uksila, of
Multnomah, and Miller, of the humbled
seven, from the ice for rough work.
While swinging his club Uksila ac
cidentally struck his teammate, Dietz,
in the cheek and three stitches were
required before the wound could be
closed. Only one change was made in
the winners' lineup, Amey replacing
Smith in the second frame.
Manager Webster, of the blue-sweat-
ered contingent, had Peterson and Wil
der as relief men and they substituted
for the players at various times
throughout the contest. The next
match of the Amateur League will be
played next Thursday between Harrl
man Club and the Rowing Club.
Multnomah Club now heads the
league with two wins and no defeats
and the Waverlies are in the cellar
with two setbacks in as many starts.
