CHS BASKETBALL 1920
(Coaldale Observer, Saturday, December 11, 1920)
In the fastest and closest game of basketball ever played in Pleasure Hall, Coaldale High School was defeated by Shenandoah High last evening 15-13, Shenandoah apparently being Coaldale’s Jonah.
At the end of the first half the score was 13-8 in favor of Shenandoah but Coaldale came back strong and outplayed the visitors in the second half, holding them to one lone field goal.
Davis and Kalin starred for their respective teams.
The local boys were outweighed but by their playing against a leading High School five showed they are worthy of the backing of all admirers of good sport.
Field GoalsKalin 2; Jones 1; Evans 1; Davis 2; Waubisky 2; Cull 1.
Foul GoalsSkinkis 5; Cull 5.
Lithgow Complimented. After the basketball game a Pleasure Hall last evening, Mgr. Brennan, of the Shenandoah High School, greeted Jimmy Lithgow with the remark: “I wish to thank you for the squarest deal we ever got on a strange floor, your work as referee was the best I ever saw.” “That’s all right,” answered Jimmy, “I see you don’t read The Courier.”
