Y.M.C.A. DEFEATS STATE COLLEGE TEAM
Fierce Contest at Basket Ball on the Gymnasium Floor:
By a score of 29 to 19 the basket ball team from the City Young Men's Christian Association defeated the Kentucky State College team in a fiercely fought game last night.
The game was played on the gymnasium floor of the Y.M.C.A. building and was witnessed by a large and enthusiastic crowd of rooters for both teams.
The Cadets were outclassed throughout the game and showed marked lack of training. The Y.M.C.A. team has been practicing longer and have, as a result, rounded into better form. The scores at the end of the first half stood 18 to 11 in favor of the Y.M.C.A. team.
John Guyn and Tommy Sheets shared about equal honors for first mention for the Y.M.C.A. Wilson and Howard Guyn, opponents, shared about equal honors in throwing goals from fouls.
Shanklin Best for Cadets
Shanklin probably put up the best game for the Cadets. Both teams committed many foul plays.
