S. CHINA SCOUTS BEATEN IN JUNIOR GAME.
In the Junior Division yesterday South China Scouts went under to St. Joseph's College by 5 points to 7. The College team led all the way but the Scouts put up a very determined struggle and at one time during the last innings it looked as if they would at least tie their opponents' score.
Omar, pitching for the College, conceded four points in five innings. Alves took over the pitching in the sixth inning which proved to be a blank. In the seventh, the Chinese obtained a single and though they had bases full with nobody down at one time they did not notch any further points.
The game was marked by an absence of speed, play being very slow. There were several delays caused through the fact that there were no balls available for play as a number of foul balls, which went behind the stand, were not retrieved.
The score by innings is as follows:
St. Joseph's College
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
2 0 0 1 1 0 1 5
2 0 0 5 0 0 - 7
The game was umpired by Zafra of the Filipino Club and S.S.Lee of the South China Dragons.
