(September 21)  In an afternoon elimination game, Calgary trounced Lethbridge 16-2 as the 'Bridge nine booted the ball nine times.  Monarchs jumped into a two run lead in the first inning and romped to the win. In the initial frame, walks to Gibson, Reddick and Lawther combined with an error and Stoddart's single netted the two markers. They added one in the fourth, another in the fifth before putting the game on ice with a six-run eruption in the eighth. Prudden coasted to the pitching win allowing just six hits, two of them three-baggers by Frank Gillespie. Prudden also starred on offense with a triple and two singles. Seaman, the Lethbridge chucker, was the victim of the Calgary attack and loose fielding by his mates.
