Maupin won the championship Friday night when it defeated the powerful Dufur
quintet by a score of 22 to 21. No one expected to see Maupin win but they
held the lead the entire game. Maupin lost no time in scoring when she
scored seven points before Dufur scored. Several times Maupin obtained a
7-point lead but every time the fighting Dufur team would cut down the lead.
In the last quarter the fans got their moneys worth. In the closing minutes
Dufur cut Maupins lead to one point after Greene and Alexander were put out
on fouls but Slusher soon gave Maupin a three point lead when he dribbled
down the floor and shot a short one. H. Strasser shot a long one for Dufur
but the final gun closed the game. Harry Rutherford ran wild for Maupin to
score 12 points.

Friday Charles Bothwell will present the cup to the Maupin high school.
Glenn Alexander will accept it in behalf of the high school.
