Kingfisher Lone Scout five defeated the Concho second team on their home court. The game was most exciting from start to finish and only one foul was made throughout the game by Concho, although the little Indians made a bad start.

The first quarter was a real hot one. Only one field goal was made by Concho. The next quarter they made another and also made a foul on Walter WICKS, K.L.S. forward, who made a free goal. At the end of the first half the score stood 4 and 1 in Concho's favor. As the third quarter started Raymond BUFFALO MEAT, Jr., went in in place of Chas. BURGESS, K.L.S. guard. Albert TASSO, Lone Scout center, made a first field goal from under the basket, and another from the side was made by Walter WICKS. At the final quarter Morgan WICKS, Lone Scout
captain and guard, made another from under the basket. Concho made another goal and at the last two minutes of play Morgan looped the last basket from center. This put the Lone Scouts in the lead, 9 to 6. Both teams had a good strong defense and were evenly matched. Morgan WICKS was high-point man for the team. Next game for Lone Scouts is with a Greenwood school team, next Saturday afternoon.
