All-Syracuse Five Wins Central New York Title In Stirring Court Duel; Rafter’s Brilliant Play Features Game- Ortner Of Cornell Pitted Against Murphy Of Rochester

The All-Syracuse five defeated Cortland Sodality, 23 to 15, on the Armory court here tonight and thereby won the Central New York basketball championship. A crowd of 2,000 spectators, including a delegation of 330 rooters from Syracuse and Cortland, watched the teams struggle in their third and deciding battle for the sectional state title. The shining light of the contest was Billy Rafter, the diminutive right forward of the Syracuse aggregation. Rafter caged four baskets from the field. The best exhibition for Cortland was given by Howard Ortner, Cornell basketball coach. The red and white mentor got but one field basket. He tallied five out of six times from the foul line. Crisp likewise was successful in five of six attempts for the All-Syracuse team. Ortner, who is not a regular member of the Sodality team, was secured especially for tonight’s game, and against him the All-Syracuse management pitted Johnny Murphy, the star Rochester Central guard. Murphy gave a credible exhibition. With Murphy in the Syracuse lineup Casey was shifted to left forward. The All-Syracuse five got the jump on their opponents from the opening whistle and never were headed by the Sodality basketeers. At half time Crisp’s players led their rivals, 13 to 5, and in the closing period retained a safe margin of ascendancy.

Beechnut Five Here Tonight To Retrieve Defeats Suffered

One of the hardest basketball contests of the season will be waged on the State Armory court tonight when Jack Nolls leads his galaxy of stars against the All-Syracuse quintet. Many followers of the game are predicting the locals will taste defeat for the first time this season on the home court at the hands of the Beechnut quintet of Canajoharie. Nolls had led his aggregation against Captain Jim Tormey and his mates twice this season and both times his men have bowed in defeat, but only after the most stirring struggles staged in this city during the year. The first game resulted in a victory for All-Syracuse by a score of 20 to 17 and the second contest was lost by the Beechnuts 19 to 20. After the second game Nolls declared that he believed his players better than the members of the All-Syracuse five and requested another chance. He also asked that outside officials handle the game. Both requests were granted and tonight’s battle will be handled by Motadorf and Murphy, both of Rochester. Nolls has agreed to bring the same team which played here last Saturday night and there will be no changes in the battle array of the locals. The lineup follows:

ALL-SYRACUSE: Rafter, lf, Crisp, rf, Tormey, c, Casey, rg, Martin, lg. BEECHNUTS: Dowd, lf, Hammond, rf, Nolls, c, Sullivan, rg, Murnane, rf.
