TO TIE score:
Hotely Contested Football Game
Saturday Is Even Break But.
Local Boys are Pleased
Fighting up and down the
field for every minute of Che eon-
test, our boys brought a score,
of 7 to 7 home with them from
the Ashland football game. This
Is the first time for several years
that the high school team hasn't
been beaten on Ashland's field,
although they tied in the game
played here last year.
Bus Christy, captain of the
eleven, wore the lucky 13 on his
sweatshirt and, contrary to the
predictions of well wishing'
friends, his was really the luck
iest play for Klamath. ?
Ashland made their touchdown
early in the garni e and Klamath
had fought for yardage but had:
no luck until well along in the
third quarter when 13 got the
ball and scored. Peltz made one ,
of his famous kicks and put the .
pis skin between the goal posts
giving Klamath a score of 7.
No points were made in the
last Quarter. With 6 minutes to
plav 13 was knocked out al
though he was the only Klamath-' V
Ian to suffer from the fight.
Ashland'a team sustained four
knockouts which speaks well for
the roughness of our home team.
Qua, Carkon. coach, says that ;
this year's team Is much stronger
year and that the back! leld wili .
hold its own better.
