Falcons Break Tie by Defeating Selkirk Speed Merchants in Heartbreaking Game

Frank Fredrickson Leads Icelanders
to Brilliant 3 to 2 Victory in Crucial
League Struggle by Scoring Winning Goal
on Dazzling Solo Rush

(January 12, 1920) Dodging through the entire Selkirk defence in a superb piece of individual brilliancy, and steering the rubber past Bobby Morrison for the deciding goal of a heart-breaking contest, Frank Fredrickson broke a two-all tie, in the last period, landed the Falcon platoon on the top of the Manitoba league standings, himself on the pinnacle reserved for hockey immortals and incidentally drew a red herring across the trail of the aspirants from the Fish Town.

Splendid Net Guarding by
Byron and McTiegue Features Lively Game

(February/March 1920?) The Winnipeg Falcons are almost sure to represent the West in Allan cup finals at Toronto. The local clan took a firm grip on the western title Monday night at the Amphitheatre rink when they administered a 7-2 beating to Fort William. It is true that these teams must play again Wednesday night, but there doesn’t appear to be a chance of the Forts winning the second game, let alone overcoming a 5 goal handicap.

Local Team shows Real Class In Final Game
Wins Series 16-3

(February/March 1920?)Completely outplaying their opponents in all three periods, and showing much better form than they did in the previous encounter, Falcons put the finishing touches on to the western hockey title at the Amphitheatre rink Wednesday night when they handed the Fort William team a 9-1 beating, making the total score for the 2 games 16-3. The first and last periods were productive of some brilliant hockey in which the Icelanders demonstrated to the fans that they are a real team. Despite the fact that the ice was in a soft and sticky condition, they journeyed up and down the rink, in a fast manner and held their opponents spellbound during these 2 frames. Both teams slowed up to some extent in the middle frame, neither aggregation showing their real ability.
