Earl Tillgren intercepted a pass and Iateraled the oval to Wayne Steen who ran to the I5-yard line. Crusinberry scored from the six yard line. Sterud and Durland stopped Mitch- ell's only threat on the two-yard line. Billings picked up a punt and ran 85 yards for the final score. Brookings-I 4 Pipestone-O We continued our winning streak with a homecoming win over the Pipestone Arrows. The fireworks broke loose when Bob Fleissner blocked an Arrow punt and Gene Waltz, alert end scored. A pass set the stage for the next score when Mc- Millan plunged over from the l-yard line. Brookings-48 Madison-O We climaxed our l939 season at Madison with a 48-O victory. Although the Bobcats started poorly, toward the last of the second period, they pushed over a score and followed it up shortly before the half with- another. This start- ed a scoring spree led by Loren Niklason, Vincent Swift, and Forrest Simmons. About 40 of our boys reported to Coach Horrigan and his assist-ant Doer- ing for their first practice September 6. The purpose of our "B" squad is two- fold, namely, to prepare boys for our "A" squad and to give many boys foot- ball experience that they would not otherwise get. Our "B" squad started the season against a strong Volga team and al- though they played a very good game, they were defeated by a score of lZ-O. The Bobkittens next met Madison's "B" team and although they played an outstanding defensive game Madison scored on a blocked punt and won 6-O. ln the game with Clear Lake the kittens hit their stride both- on offense and defense and won 41-O. In a return game, Volga managed to eke out a lZ-9 victory over the Kittens. In the second game with Madison Brookings turned the tables and handed them a I3-6 defeat. The Bobkittens played a good game to defeat Eastern High 22-6 in the climax.
