November 4 The Aurora l-loun' Dogs upset the Neosho Wildcats at their homecoming In the first half Neosho led all the way by the score of 12-6, However, in the third period the Houn' Dogs began to roll,, and they kept going for the rest of the game.

The Mon- ett Cubs pulled out in front in the first minutes of the game and continued to raise their score. November18 Neosho was the scene of a hard fought football game between the Wild- cats of Neosho and the Tigers of Nevada.

To the Neosho team it was more than just a defeat, for this was the first time in l6 years that Mt, Vernon had won, This brings to a close the l949 season. Better luck next year.
