.S'cf1fe11iIn'1'S. Now that all the little boys and
girls are back in school and Coaches Ubermeyer
and Scheela have called for football candidates.
everything seems to be back in the usual routine.
VVith seven lettermen and about thirty-three new
members, football practice begins in earnest.
After a week of calisthenics and fundamentals,
the boys get their first taste of scrimmage.
Scfvfciubcr 18. The Fosston warriors play here
for the first game of the season. The first touch-
down was made after a long run by XN'arren
Scarr. After that the Pirates settled down for a
counter each period and were happy when the
score showed a 28-O defeat for Fosston.
Warren Pony Scarr's running showed up excep-
tionally well. The boys exhibited good blocking and
tackling for the first game.
Scpfmnbcr 25. After a hard practice. the Pirates
journey to Thief River Falls. only to suffer one
of the most stinging defeats handed to a Crook-
ston team in recent years. The Prowlers charged
up and down the field, scoring numerous touch-
downs throughout the game. After the dust had
settled and the Thief River victory songs had
ceased, the score was 42-O for the Prowlers.
The boys definitely had an off night at Thief
River, but credit must be given to iieet little Bud
Fox who made more yardage than any other back-
field man. From this year's experience he should
be quite capable of holding down Senior Warren
Scarr's position next year.
October I. Another week of hard practice and
about three first string men are out of the line-up
because of injuries. This week it is Red Lake
Falls, and the boys are out for revenge. But the
local warriors go down in a 32-O defeat.
It was either paint under the Red Lake Falls
boys' eyes or the fists that got in the Pirates' hair
October 8. This week the Gold and Blue warriors
travel to Bemidji. Again the Pirates are defeated
by the powerful Lumberjacks. The score was
39-7. Glen Morlan making the Pirates' only
Allan Lindholm broke his elbow in the game.
Bob Brekke and George Henre were outstanding on
the end positions, and Glen Morlan showed up well
in the backfield. .
Offoluv' 75. Through a series of line plunges,
llaugo of XYarren spelled defeat for the Pirates
in their next game. Our boys fought valiantly
but could not keep up the pace in the third quar-
ter. when XVarren made the only touchdown of
With Butch Haugen backing up the line in this
game the Warren backfield had a hard time making
any yardage through the center of the line.
Orfolim' 22. The Mahnomen Indians are sched-
uled to play here for the last home game. VVith
eight regulars on the side lines because of injur-
ies the Pirates are greatly handicapped. The only
scoring is in the first half, Mahnomen making a
total of twenty-six points, Crookston. none.
junior Hanson, the overgrown boy in the eighth
grade, played in this game. Give him a few more
years cf experience, and he is going places.
fJl'f0IJl'1' 29. The last game of the season is at
lfast Grand Forks against the Little Green XN'ave.
lf statistics mean anything, the Pirates won that
I 1 ' 4
game. lhey made thirteen first downs to lzast
Grand Forks' seven. Time and time again the
liucaneers marched down the field, only to lose
the ball inside their opponents' ten-yard line.
George Muir's plunging was the best he had ex-
hibited all year.
The Pirates are not proud of their 1937 season.
lint those who followed the team admit that there
were contributing causes which the student body
should recognize. Most important was the high
percentage of injuries which fell upon the team
like a blight, handicapping one after another of
the first string men.
The injuries, combined with successive defeats.
dampened the spirit of the team until neither the
training of the coaches nor the good intentions of
the players could produce a victory. A high-brow
might analyze the predicament by saying that the
boys suffered from a psychological inferiority
complex. The coaches and the players feel that
the team lacked a spark plug-an effective leader
on the field.
XYith fourteen lettermen returning and a promis-
ing squad, the boys will turn out next fall with
unprecedented enthusiasm and hope, to show the
students, the town, and their opponents that the
Pirates' grid machine is grinding down the come-
