The Cliffers came back with a rush in second half and run the score
to I0-9 in their favor in short order and at this point Hopper was put out on
four personals. Stickle held a one-point lead with only four minutes to go
and Newman sank a free throw and knotted the count. The rest of the game
was played scoreless and an extra period was necessary and after about a minute
of play Newman made his fourth foul and was taken from the game. This
left the Leopards minus three regulars as Baxter was confined to his bed with
high fever. The loggers caged two field baskets and two free throws in this
period while the Leopards were held scoreless although they had several good
shots. Capt. Smith of Stickle was put out for protesting a decision called by
Referee Schultz. The game was by far the roughest game of the season.
Oak Cliff Vs. Waco
Oak Cliff ran rough shod over their old athletic rival, Waco High, de-
feating them 30 to Io.
Hopper and Sasse were the high score men, each scoring ten points. Waco
was badly outclassed in all departments of the game. A new combination of
players was used as Baxter was out of the game.
Oak Cliff vs. Burleson
Playing the closest game of the year Oak Cliff won from the fast Burleson
five 25 to 23. The score was tied when the last whistle blew and an extra
period was added. Sasse made the winning score for Oak Cliff.
Hopper was out on account of an accident and Baxter and Carver were on
the sick list.
Oak Cliff vs. Bryan
This was the most poorly played game in the series but it did not lack in
interest. Hopper, Oak Cliff's leader and high score man of the series was
out on account of an accident.
Bryan held the lead of 6 to 5 at the half and the score was never tied
though the battling Leopards threatened several times. The score-Bryan 18,
oak cmr 14.
Oak Cliff vs. Forest
By defeating Forest I7 to Il Oak Cliff tied with them for second place
in the city race and gave Bryan the City Championship.
The close guarding of the Leopards did not allow Forest boys many shots
at the basket and these Were poorly played. Oak Cliff played a very strong
defensive game but was handicapped by the loss of Hopper.

Oak Cliff vs. North Dallas
Fighting from behind a long lead that the Bulldogs had taken in the first
half, Oak Cliff came back with a mighty rush in the last half and Won the
game 20 to 16.
The Leopards did not get started in the first half and the score stood I3
to 7 in their favor. Mr. Allen gave a little talk to the boys, however, and
when the second half started Oak Cliff started and did not stop until they had
won the game.

Forest 22-7. At the end of the half the score stood 7 to 6 in favor of Forest,

not hit the basket. Hopper took the lead in the scoring in the city series by
a lead of five points.
Oak Cliff vs. Bryan

many personal fouls were called. The score-Bryan 16, Oak Cliff 13.
Oak Cliff vs. North Dallas
Playing the snappiest game of the series Oak Cliff Was defeated 29 to 26.
The game was close all the Way through but the Bulldogs managed to retain the

passing and ffoor work was really better than that of North Dallas but it Was
the Bulldogs last chance to stay in the race and they managed to Win.
Stickle Beats Leopards in Overtime Game
ln the final game of the season the blue and white met the strong Stiekle
Lumber Corporation quintet in the S1-a-point series and went down by the
score of 23-17. However, the score was tied at I7 all at the end of the

High School Title Finds Home Iii Lair
of Leopard Quint
After playing their fastest and best game of the season in chalking up a victory over the
Grand Saline High school basketeers Saturday afternoon at the Bryan High gymnasium, the
Oak Cliff Leopards pushed their basket ball skill and ability a notch closer to the old grindstone
of eHorts Saturday night and won the Southern A. A. U. high school cage tourney from the
Corsicana quintet, 42 to 16.
The Leopards failed to win the city series, but they alone survived the Dallas teams in
the mire of competition that waged encounters this year in the A. A. U. meet. In trimming
the Corsicana dribblers, the Cliffers had their hands full of fight and five loopers of A-1
ranking. Corsicana proved a tough quintet to handle and only the superior basket ball work of
the fast Clin? machine paved the way to victory.
Corsicana staked a wonderful fight of the entire thing. Apparently tired due to their
strenuous bout of the afternoon with Highland Park High School, they fought gamely and
went down like a regular tribe of goal shooters should take the final count. This makes the
first time in two years that a new champion holds the crown. Forest High school of Dallas
won the title in 1923 and IQZ4.
The entire Oak Cliff club played excellent basket ball to Win the final clash for cham-
pionship honors. Ira Hopper, Newman, Box Baxter and others certainly played their positions
well. Horn was the individual star for the Corsicana aggregation. Hopper was the high scorer
of the game with twenty-one points to his credit. In the afternoon game Ira failed to score
a single Held goal-but he sure made up for lost time in the final bout. Newman scored
eleven points and played a fine floor game. For Corsicana the goal shooting of H. Green
featured. He whipped the net for a total of ive points out of the combined sixteen made by
his club. The Corsicana scoring power was not impressive but their passing was good, and
throughout the entire melee the white clad youngsters were a constant threat.
Bryan High school won the consolation meet by defeating Colfax, 18 to li. Highland
Park Won third place in the tourney on Il forfeit from Grand Saline.

Oak Cliff 32, Grand Saline 29.
Oak Cliff hit its best stride of the year to defeat Grand Saline in the second semi-final
at Bryan High, 32-29, in a game played at fever heat to the last whistle. The Leopards led
at the half, and when Grand Saline tied the score early in the third period, forced ahead again
by a well directed basket ball attack, a neat passing game that fed a forward under the basket
that Grand Saline failed to guard. Newman was the bright star of the game, not only caging
six baskets, but playing a dazzling floor game, while a remarkable feature Was that the usually
dependable Ira Hopper failed to score a field goal.
Grand Saline, already handicapped by the ineligibility of two players, lost McKenzie on
personal fouls in the second half.
