Second H. S. Team Defeated.
The second high school team of
Reynoldsvllle was defeated by the
DuBois second team at the latter place
last Saturday afternoon In, as the
Courier tays, "a well played game."
Score 21 to 0.
- For some reason the Courier does not
act fair with Reynoldsvllle when Du
Bois Is Interested. November 23rd the
DuBois and Reynoldsvllle high school
teams played a game bere and the
visitors were defeated. Score 5 to 0.
The Courier claimed that neither side
scored and also stated that it was the
old "Indian" foot ball of Reynoldsvllle
that had defeated tbe DuBois high
school boys. On Friday, November 20,
the DuBoIb aod Reynoldsvllle second
high school teams played a game in
Reynoldsvllle and the DuBois boys
were defeated, score 11 to 0, but the
Courier failed to make mention of tbe
game. In the report of Saturday's
game the Courier gives the second high
school team of that place credit with
defeating tbe high Bchool team of Reyn
oldsvllle, which is not a true statement.
It was the second high school team
of Reynoldsvllle, Omitting the word
"second" makes oonsfdorable difference
