due largely to the fact that an excellent referee had been secured, Mr. Bewick
of 
the Farmer's School. His decisions were questioned by no one. The Sturgeon
Bay boys were manly losers and the school would enjoy meeting them here again.
D. K. T. S. AT KEWAUNEE 
There being no games scheduled for the two weeks following the Sturgeon Bay
game the boys decided to take a much needed rest. On February 8, 1918, they
journeyed to Kewaunee. After a three hour wait at Casco Junction the boys
at 
last arrived at their destination. A debate was given at the Kewaunee High
School and caused considerable delay so the game was not begun until after
11 
o'clock. The Kewaunee team proved too much for our boys, nevertheless they
returned home the next day confident of redeeming their reputation on our
home 
floor. The game had indeed been a "Waterloo." 
D. K. T. S. AT STURGEON BAY 
The return game with Sturgeon Bay was scheduled for February 15, 1918, but
the A. & W. "flyer" was unable to get through the snow and
the game was post- 
poned. On February 21, the boys successfully arrived at Sturgeon Bay and
pro- 
ceeded to the High School. This game was marked by rough playing. For a 
time it might have been mistaken for a football game. Rough play did not
stop 
the boys from making scores and when the final score was counted the result
was 
Training School 39, Sturgeon Bay 23. Fouls were numerous and were almost
evenly divided between the two teams. This game was refereed by Mr. Maas
of the Algoma High School. 
KEWAUNEE AT ALGOMA 
The next night the return game with Kewaunee was played. Our boys some- 
what fatigued from the game the night before showed that they still had but
little 
"pep" left in them. The first half ended with Kewaunee having nearly
five times 
as many scores as the D. K. T. S. In the second half the home boys played
a 
faster game and cut the lead to less than three times the score. The final
score 
was 35-13 in Kewaunee's favor. 
RETURN GAME WITH ALGOMA HIGH SCHOOL 
The real game of the season was played with the Algoma High School. Much
interest in this game had been aroused, the supposition again being that
the High 
School boys would without question be the victors. The game started like
a 
whirlwind and things looked bad for the High School during the first half.
This 
half ended with the Training School a long way in the lead. The second half
was 
very different, however, for the High School boys began to play real basketball.
For a time it looked as if the High School were going to win. But alas, the
whistle blew and the game was over, with the Training School once more victor-
ious. Score, 22-20. 
This game was refereed by Berl Rider. He filled the position to the satisfaction
of all concerned. Umpire, Mr. Maas. 
The last game of the season was an acceptance of a challenge made by the
alumni boys to the regular team of our school. The game was played on April
27 
as a part of the alumni program. Both teams showed lack of practice but both
teams did spectacular playing. The score at the close of the game indicated
that 
the school team won by a score of 10-21.
