illnnthall After a year's absence Coach Stephens returned to take up his work in Creston High. l-le has taught here several years and therefore knows the kind of material that Creston produced and how to fashion it into a strong team. Stephens introduced several new plays into the school and trained the material into a strong football team, which although rather light, won the games with speed and brain work, as the result of careful coaching. Stephens was aided in the latter part of the season by Mr. Gettys, who was well posted on the game and knew how each position should be played to bring the best results. We regret that it is beyond our power to have individual snapshots taken of our football teams, but as circumstances would not permit we are forced to take but one group picture of the boys of Red and Black. The material was good that turned out to make up the team of Creston High. Coach Stephens started the boys to practice as soon as school was well organized. After lining them up, it was found that several positions were left open by the men of the class of 'l9, but these places were easily filled up by old subs and by the boys who had been in the service. After a period of several weeks of practice in tackle, signal and scrimmage, the team was molded into shape and was ready to meet the Diagonal team at this place on the new field between Elm and Maple streets. We easily won this game as the final score was 84 to 0. In this game we used several subs. Although the Diagonal boys were badly beaten, they must be given credit for playing a good clean game. After a week more of signal practice, scrimmage and strengthening the points that we found weak in our game with Diagonal, we were prepared to meet Osceola on our own field. We expected a hard battle but by good team work the end came with the score standing at 27 to 0 in our favor. - Our next game was to take place at Greenfield, October l7. We departed on the set date to meet these worthy opponents. The teams were evenly matched and a close game was the result. The battle raged fiercely and when the smoke raised, the opponents had the score 7 to I9, in their favor. Casualties resulted on both sides from the fight. Our defeat at Greenfield did not alter our courage, it only served to arouse our pep. In this high state of determination we dug up the hatchet and were on the war path again. This time we directed our attack upon Bedford. We have a close game, but it ended with the score 7 to 0 in our favor. Bedford immediately recalled her forces and launched a counter attack upon us, October Zl. But we had confidence in our team and knew they would win. The two teams were evenly matched and a good, clean, hard fought game resulted which ended with the score at I9 to 7, in our favor. The next game took place at Corning. We expected a hard battle with the Corning boys, who greatly exceded us in size and weight, but our team was in fair shape for the game. We lost this game by the narrow margin of 9 to 0. Although we lost, we give our boys due credit, because they played well. Championship is what all schools work for: that is what we were working for. Our last hard fight to secure the S. W. championship took place on our home grounds with Orient as our opponents. The school and public were out in full force to back the team. The largest crowd of the season turned out to see the team in Red and Black and how they could play. Both teams had set victory as their goal, but natur- ally one would have to lose. The game was hotly contested and when the whistle blew, the score stood 7 to 6 in Orient's favor, and with Creston over the ball a few yards from the goal. Although we lost the championship our opponents paid a good price for it. On November 24 our team joumeyed to Red Oak to meet their team. As the season was drawing to a close our team was in good condition. The score was held

very low, for Red Oak had a strong defense, but this defense was not strong enough to prevent Fat Bartle from making a line plunge off left guard, which resulted in a 55-yard run for goal. With this the game ended, 7 to 0, in our favor. Fat's plunge was the outstanding feature of the game for which he must be credited. On Thanksgiving Day the last game for the season was played with Leon on our own held. Our team was not at its highest standard and it was found necessary to use several subs in line. The day was very cold and the ground frozen, but this did not prevent the school and public from coming out and seeing us fight. In this game we made a few forward passes, while our former games had been made hy short plunges through the line. This hattle was hard on both teams, due to climatic condi- tions. We ended tlte season by winnning this game and came out with flying colors with the score of 27 to l9. THE LINE UP Players Position Subs. Arnold.. .... R.E. Birge.. .... R.T.... Kelly . . . .... R.
