Syracuse Herald- All-Syracuse Wins Another Game From Ogdensburg Men

The All-Syracuse basketball team last night defeated the Ogdensburg quintet in a well played game at Watertown, the score being 16 to 7. It was the first of a series of three games to be played between the two teams on the Watertown court. Close guarding marked the play throughout. Dexter, who divided the game at left forward with Crisp, was the star of the contest. The summary follows:

All-Syracuse decisively defeated the Ogdensburg Company I team, 16 to 7, on the Armory court here in the first of a series of three games to decide the Northern New York basketball championship. The second duel will be staged here next Friday night. Dexter, the former Cortland Sodality player, who substituted for Crisp at right forward when the Syracuse pilot was shifted to left guard, gave a brilliant exhibition, caging three field baskets. Rafter and Tormey shared honors with Dexter. Wilson played creditably for the vanquished aggregation. During the opening period the north country basket tossers succeeded in holding their rivals to a 3 to 0 score by clever checking play. With the opening of the final half, however, the Syracusans staged an attack that could not be denied and piled up baskets on their opponents in regular succession. Ladoceur, the Ogdensburg foul goal shooter, fell down miserably in his attempts from the line and score but one in 15 tries. Crisp tallied twice in five free throws. A crowd of 1,000 spectators, including a delegation of Salt City fans, witnessed the contest.
