Loses Football Game
The football team of Caddo School went to Durant Monday afternoon and were defeated in a game with the Durant High School team.
The Democrat has this to say about the game: The Durant High School football team, weighing considerably more than their opponents, yesterday afternoon had little trouble in winning from the Caddo High School team on the north Ward School gridiron.
The Caddo Team came down on the 3:47 Katy and were met at the train by the locals and escorted to the school grounds. Although the score was somewhat one-sided the game was full of thrills and the playing of the local team was a source of much gratification to the supporters of the Durant boys. The Caddo boys did not give up, but kept in the game until the last quarter was played and fought the locals hard. The local team outweighed the visitors and this no doubt was one of the causes of the big score being tacked up against them. But the visitors took their defeat in true sportsmanlike manner and went home rejoicing that they had paid the capital a visit, even if they were defeated and they were loud in their praise of the treatment accorded them by the Durant team. After the game the teams repaired to the Palace Café where a banquet was tendered the members of both teams and other visitors who came with the boys.
The Caddo boys were accompanied to Durant by Supt. Chesnut and Principal Frazier and several young ladies.
