Caddo 6, Bennington 0
Friday afternoon on the Bennington field the Caddo High School Football team defeated the Bennington team in the season’s first game. The only score was made during the last few minutes of the first quarter when Charles Dale passed from the ten-yard line to Charley Davis on the goal line. They failed to kick. The teams were evenly matched and from then on the ball was carried up and down the field without either side scoring. Each play as well-chosen and the team responded nobly.
This was the first game for seven or eight of the boys, but they played like veterans. They were a credit to the school and to their coach and we are justly proud of them.
The student body demonstrated it's interest in the team when 20 students and 3 teachers attended the game and rooted vigorously from the sidelines.
