determined to win and showed their determination during the entire game.
For 
a while the excitement ran high, for it looked as if they would come out
victors. 
However, the score reversed a few minutes before time was called and the
High 
School once more was victorious. The score was 9-7. 
Believing in the motto, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again,"
the Train- 
ing School girls decided to play a last and decisive game. Both teams had
determined to win and they showed their determination by keeping the score
a 
tie all through the game. This was perhaps the best girls' game ever seen
played 
at the local hall. Both teams did excellent team work and each player played
to 
the best of her ability. Excitement ran high in the crowd and for a while
the 
whistle of the referee could not be heard. When the regular playing time
was 
up it was found that the score was a tie, 4-4. Extra time was then given
to see 
which team could get two points the first. Fouls were called on the High
School 
girls and taking every opportunity the Training School's forwards made two
free 
throws which ended the game with the score of 6-4 with the D. K. T. S. victorious.
STURGEON BAY HIGH SCHOOL VS. D. K. T. S. 
One of the most interesting games of the season was played on March 7, 1918,
when the Sturgeon Bay "seven" came to Algoma to play the D. K.
T. S. girls. 
They were soon shown that determination to win and winning a game were two
entirely different matters. The many spectators agreed that the teams were
well 
matched and that the game was a very fast one. , The final score was 16-5
in 
favor of the D. K. T. S. After the game, the D. K. T. S. and the Algoma High
School girls served supper to the Sturgeon Bay team in the Assembly Room
of 
the Training School. A short musical program was given by the members of
the 
school, after which toasts were called for from the members representing
the 
different schools. The remainder of the evening was spent in playing games.
The return game with Sturgeon Bay was played in the Sturgeon Bay gymnasium
on March 19, 1918. This game was different from other games, due to the fact
that, it was a one-line game instead of a two-line. Miss Leutsker of the
Training 
School and Miss Thorpe of the High School, accompanied the team to Sturgeon
Bay. Miss Thorpe acted as referee. Our girls were somewhat handicapped by
the small hall in which they neded to play. Sturgeon Bay took the lead during
the first few minutes and secured four points. However, our girls got into
the 
game and brought the score to a tie. At the end of the first half the score
was 
6-3 in favor of the High School girls. When the second half began there was
good playing on both sides. In a short while the score was a tie 8-8. The
girls 
now tried to imitate the boys and rough playing was the result. Fouls were
called 
on both sides and these were the cause of Sturgeon Bay getting one point
ahead. 
Then came the climax. A brilliant throw by one of the Sturgeon Bay centers
and 
the game was over with the Sturgeon Bay girls the victors by a score of 8-11.
A 
reception was given the Training School girls after the game which was greatly
appreciated.
