KOSSttTM (JOttNTY ADVANCE. ALQONA. IOWA PAGE EIGHT WHITTEMORE LOSES BATTLE TO SUOHN'S But Bancrofters Won Cage Title By Only an Eyelash. !.' By Arthur Heidenwllh. Whittemore, Mar. 15 — It was Whittemorc public school against St. John's, Bancroft, in one of the opening basketball games of a district tournament at Mason City Wednesday evening, and this was a close and thrilling battle from start to finish. Each team showed clever, hard- playing teamwork and good sportsmanship. In the first half Whittemore took the lead and had the long end of a 15-8 score at the end of the initial period, but in the last half, with Richard Bierstedt out of the locals' lineup on four personal fouls, the scoring was reversed to 17-9 foi St. John's. The wind-up score was thus 25-24 for the Bancroft- ers. Both teams were unaccustomed to the big 50 bq 100 foot floor at the Mason City field house. The Kossuth boys are used to much smaller floors. Whittemore's Personnel. In free throws, Bancroft had a substantial better percentage, making seven out of 14 attempts, while Whittemore made good only on eight out of 21. Nevin Woodward, Dick Hanson, Richard Bierstedt, Calvin Vaudt, Melvin Roeber, and Frank Dogotch are consistent players who will be missed next year on the local team, since they are candidates for graduation. Nevin was probably the fastest man on the Whittemore team, always covering a large part of the floor and constantly feeding the ball to his teammates for set-ups. Dick Hansen was captain of a team that played a 20-game schedule and lost only two games one to Rodman early in the seas- Edw.
