Durant-Caddo Play First Game
The first football game of the season was played last Saturday afternoon between Caddo High School and Durant High School at the Durant fair grounds, and resulted in a victory for Durant by a score of 65 to 0.
The Caddo team was lighter and less experienced than their opponents, but they made a game fight against the odds.
The Durant Democrat gives our boys the following nice notice which shows that they were well behaved and hard workers:
“The Durant back field men did some good work, breaking through Caddo’s line at will and breaking up their interference easily. Caddo’s men worked hard all the time and went down to defeat, fighting to the very last, showing that although they lost this game they are going to keep on until they are in better condition and then look out, for they have the spirit that will win. The Durant men were in better physical condition by far than the Caddo boys and their playing showed that they have had a great deal more training this year than their opponents. Caddo lacked endurance and also were very poor with their interference which accounts for the one-sided score.”

Caddo and Atoka Play a Tie Football Game
Friday afternoon at 3:30 the Caddo and Atoka football teams played a tie game on Caddo grounds, the score being 12-12. This was one of the best fought games seen on Caddo grounds in several seasons, and both teams put up a good fight. More Caddo citizens were interested in the sport; thus taking a better interest in the schools. Caddo has a good football team and we should encourage the boys. Later we shall have a good basketball team of boys and girls.
Interest in sports will lead to greater interest in the other activities of the school.
