Upper Class Teams win in High Games

Seniors and Juniors defeat Freshmen and Sophomores by Big Scores

October 6, 1913

LITTLE ROCK – The football team representing the senior and junior classes of the Little Rock High School defeated the freshmen and sophomores yesterday afternoon by the respective scores of 47 to 18 and 52 to 6. The underclassmen were not able to cross the goal lines of the opponents and secured their points through handicaps.

The upper class teams, although weakened by the absence of several players, put up good games and had things much their own way. Martin and England were the most consistent ground gainers for the seniors and Collamore played a good game for the freshmen. This quarterback is light, but very aggressive, and in a few years should prove one of the best players turned out at the local school. In addition to these players, Hampel, Nichols and Harris starred.

In the Junior-Freshmen game, Kavanaugh, Jackson, Harris and Bowman played the best football. The Juniors had possession of the ball practically throughout the game and their goal line was not in danger at any stage. Weist, Anderson, Kitchens and Lindsay did the best work for the Sophomores. The Juniors used the forward pass frequently and made gains with it.

The Seniors will meet the Juniors and the Sophomores will meet the Freshmen next Monday (October 13), and the best games of the series are anticipated.
