cluding game of the series with Du-
rant which Ardmoro annexed by a

The wild and Ineffectual pitching
ot Gibson was tho main cause of Du-
rante defeat. Many mlsplaya were
charged up to tho local team. Baync
tho little shortstop had a very bad
day but two exceedingly good catches
back of third which robbed Hie vis-
iting (earn of as many safe hits put
him right with tho crowd.
Tho batting of Westmoreland and
Ragsdalo was good each securing
three safeties. Dougherty put up a
good game at first. In tho elght'i In-
ning he was injured while running
after a foul fly and was laid out for
n few minutes but resumed his posi-
tion and finished out tho game.
Harris helped win his game by a
safe drive In the fifth Inning which
bcored Mclvcr and Hagsdale. which
put Ardmoro one to the good.

ing for Madlll where they will play
