These Two Teams Are Evenly Match.
ed And A Hard Batte Is Ex-
Wocted To Draw A Big Crowd
When the undefeated junior team
edashes with the veteran senior team
at 4 o'clock Thursday on Palmer
field, the winner of the 1927 universi-
ty class hockey championship title
Will be determined. I is hoped that a
large number of spectators will turn
,out to wach the game.
t The junior eleven enters the battle
Thursday having won all of its gami
'es to date and having been scored on
in but two of these contests. Above
their opponents by 5 points, they have
piled up four times as many tallies,
being credited with 20 goals against
opposing teams.
However, the senior combination
promises to offer the stiffest opposi-
tion run up against by the juniors
during the hockey' season this year.
With the title at stake they expect
to put up a good fight so as to fur-
nish plenty of opposition and possi-
bly stage a come-back to take aw
the. season's final glory from the jun-
ror class.
The sophomore and freshman teams
are primed to play their best brand
of"hockey,teach anxious to come out
ahiead of the other for third place
honors in the championship standing.
The freshmen have suffered three de-
feats at the hands of opponents, tied
the second year class in the previous
match between the two, and last week
held the strong senior combination to
a 1 to 1 score in an equally matched
'game. The recorddofethe sophomore
eleven lists 'four defeats suffered by
them at the hands of the other teams,
and one tie.
Alpha Epsilon Phi, playing fast
hockey, won the championship of
tournament B yesterday afternoon
when it defeated Alpha Phi, who with
exceptional stregth gave one of the
best athletic battles this'year. The
decision. was made in a the second
helf when a single goal was scor-.
ed, resulting in a 3-2 score.
In spite of the fact that the tour-
nament B team disqualified in tour-
nament A, intramural points will be
given for the part they took in the
minor tourney.
An even better brand of hockey was
played in the other game yesterday
between Betsy Barbour and Alpha
Omicron Pi, semi-final in tournament
A. Betsy Barbour's team showed the
result of hard practicing this fall, and
bested the sorority team by a 2-0
score. The game in which Alpha Omi-
cron Pi held the dormitory team with
its superior team-work to such a
close score willgo down in hockey
history. The game was not only well
played but the fast pace set in the
first half was maintained.
Next Friday at, 4 o'clock, the chain-
pionship game in tournament A will
be played between Betsy Barbour and
