Syracuse Herald- All-Syracuse Wins Another Local Quintet Defeats Frankfort In Fast Basketball Game

The All-Syracuse basketball team added another victory to its long list Wednesday night when it defeated the Frankfort aggregation by a score of 16 to 11 in one of the best games of the year. Close guarding featured the play of both sides, the issue being decided mainly by Crisp’s work from the foul line, the local athlete showing to much better advantage in his free shots than did the 15-foot mark men for Frankfort. Casey and Rafter were the only Syracusans to tally field goals, each of these players scoring twice from the open. Frankfort had only three field goals, two being tallied by Andre and one by Sullivan. The first half was played under professional rules and All-Syracuse led at the end of the period by a 7 to 3 score. In the second, under intercollegiate play, the visitors rallied and brought their score up within a point of All-Syracuse in the first ten minutes, the tally at that time being 8 to 7. A field goal by Rafter and two fouls by Crisp, gave Syracuse a safe lead once more. Sullivan and Andre shot field goals for Frankfort in the closing minutes but these points were offset by Crisp’s foul shots. Saturday night the All-Tonawanda basketball team, another aggregation which has a victory over the Buffalo Orioles in its record, will oppose All-Syracuse at the Armory. The summary of last night’s game follows:

ALL-SYRACUSE: Martin, lf (0-0-0), Rafter, rf (2-1-5), Tormey, c (0-0-0), Casey, lf (2-0-4), Crisp, rg (0-7-7) TOTALS (4-8-16). FRANKFORT: Bott, lf (0-0-0), Bowen, rf (0-0-0), Sullivan, c (1-1-3), Andre, lg (2-4-8), Hall, rg (0-0-0) TOTALS (3-5-11).
