Grants Paaa Teams Take Pexrt In
Lively Games Here and
The gao.e with Rosebuig on last
Friday proved one of the most excit
ing games of foot ball ever played in
Grants Pass. The game 'was closely
contested from start to finish aud was
won by Grants Psss by the narrow
margin of 12-11.
On the line-up for Grants Pass were
several plajers' not in attendance in
the High school. This' fact pre
vions to the game called Tor consid
erable discussion both on the part of
thuse directly interested in the game
and others interested in fair play. It
is bnt just to say in this connection
that -the Rosebnrg team had been
represented, by those who purported
to know, to have on its line-up out
side players. For this reason onr
boys al o went outside for material
for a team, and more especially be
cause on all the teams they have
played against this season there has
been outside material. On Friday
afternoon before the game the matter
was laid before the manager of the
Rosebnrg team, aud his wish in the
matter was sought. He asked to rule
off two of Grants Pass' players and
named two of the best. This was
agreed to aud the game was played
with this understanding, Cart.
Cheshire of Grauts Pans substituting
lighter and less experienced men in
these places. The Ros'burg team out
weighed Grauts Pass to some extent,
and it is but fair to state that the
captain of the Rosebnrg team is a post
gradnate pupil in school and not tak
ing legular work.
In the Thauksgiving game with the
Ashland High School ou yesterday
afternoon, Grants Pass High School
kept up its record as a winning team.
Although somewhat outweighed by
the ABhland boys our home boys won
out a clean, clear victory, making'
one touchdown and goal in eacli half,
thus winning by a score of 12-0. The
game was characterized by good ft el'
iig between the pluyers and an
utter lack of wrangling and abusive
language that came from the Rose
burg players The Ash laud team ex
pressed themselves as much pleased
with the treatment received at the
hands of Grants Puss. The Ashland
team were a well behaved, gentle
manly set of boys and reflected
credit upou their High School aud
school training. Their playing was
plucky, but somewhat lacking in team
work. It was due to this that Grants
Pass was able to make such a good
score against a heavier teim.
The attendance at the game
small and the boys are unable to pay
out expenses. This practically closes
the football scbbou, however a game
has beeu arranged between tho Higli
School and clerks of Grants Pass to
be played sometime near Christmas.
The proceeds of this game will be
given to the High School team to en
able them to pay oh outstanding
amouuts aud to contribute to the
The A. A. C's. game with Ashland
was not so favorable fur Grants Pass,
Ashland winning by score of (1-0,
scoring in the last three minutes of
play. The A- A. C. boys report a
clean game, and are pleased with the
entertainment received at Ashlund.
A retnrn ganio will be played in the
near future at Grauts Pass.
