With the score 21 to 11 at the half, it was evident that the visitors had a distinct edge and were destined to win the game. The Bulldogs, who started the season with two veterans, are reduced to one at the present moment. Lynk and Bruns were the vets.

Tonight the boys play LuVerne, and endeavor to rally their forces before meeting the Webster City Lynx here, on Friday night, in the first game on the North Centra conference schedule.
