Bosse 13, Reitz 0
Bosse earned a bit of revenge as they shutout the Panthers, 13-0, winning the city championship in a special postseason charity game.
During part of the Great Depression, the Indiana High School Athletic Association allowed member schools to schedule an extra game if the proceeds went to charity. Following Reitz’ 6-0 upset over previously unbeaten Bosse in the final game of the regular season, which gave both teams a 2-1 city record and a temporary share of the crown, local officials ended up deciding to put on a double header that would break the tie.
Additionally, Memorial defeated Central, 9-6, to take third place in the first game of the double header. For more information, be sure to read the story posted on AlmanacSports.com a few years back.
