What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

It gives you a 16-0 victory over the Ronan Chiefs. The Pira'es did all of that and more last Friday in Poison as they brought smiles to practically the entire town After a 10 year drought against the Chiefs the Pirates proved to all 'hat they are the true cham- pions of the conference although Whitefish was chosen after lengthy deliberation over the in- terpretation of the rules Poison , Ronan and Whitefish all ended the season with 3-1 records. Since none of the teams defeated the other two teams, the Montana High School Association used a total point system based on the margin of victory or defeat of the contending team performances in their head to head games The tie breaker only elimiiiated Ronan and left Poison and Whitefish still tied Since Whitefish defeated Poison earlier in the season, Whitefish was declared the State Tour- nament representative. Earlier in the week the MHSA informed Head coach Jerry McCullough that Poison only needed to defeat Ronan by 11 and on Thursday they changed their decision and said Poison needed a victory by 17 points Poison used its stingy defense to totally shut down the Chiefs' highly regarded offense The Chiefs only crresed the fifty twice. The Pirates' offense gave the Poison crowd its best showing of the year and it was against the conference's second best defense The Pirates were running out of a new for- mation that they had been practicing for a couple of weeks McCullough in- serted Mike Geer at tailback and Geer had a field day romping for 147 yards on 22 carries.
