The first game of the season, played on January 12, 1917, ended in disappointment for the Polars.  The Polars were leading 3-2.  With 30 seconds to play, East scored to tie the score and send the game into overtime.  The teams played a 10 minute overtime period and East scored two goals during that time and won 5-3.

 

The second game, on January 13, 1917, was against Central.  The Polars won 2-0 on the play of Harold Worrell, Cyrus Passolt and Roy Kammerer. 

 

The teams did not keep score for the January 22 game against Dunwoody.  According to the 1917 Polaris Yearbook, “This game was not on the schedule, so no official score was kept.”

 

The next game, January 26, against South featured Harold Worrell.  The Polars held off the Tigers 2-1.

 

On February 2, West was the Polar opponent.  Again, the Polars are victorious by a 2-1 score.

 

On February 9, the Polars played Central.  The team, playing with confidence, defeated Central 3-1.  H. Hanson provided the play of the game, racing the length of the rink for a goal.

 

The Polars were looking for revenge in their February 12 game against East.  To this date, the loss in the first East game was the only blemish on the Polar record.  Harold Worrell was not going to let this game get away from the Polars.  He scored three goals, leading the Polars to a 4-3 victory.

 

North then played West on February 23.  Going into this game, North and West were tied for the conference lead.  The game was postponed due to weather a few times.  The game was all it was built up to be, with the Polars winning 2-1.

 

The final game of the season, played on February 26, was against South.  IF North win, they would secure the conference title to themselves.  If they lose, they would share the title.  The Polars left no doubt as to who the champion was, destroying the Tigers 11-1.  This was a total team effort.
