The L’p-states kicked off in the opening of the second half. Our team again opened up with a series of end runs and passes. One of Jamestown’s players roughed a passer and they were penalized half the distance to the goal line. The penalty put new vigor into our squad and after a couple of successful end runs it scored.

Saturday morning, October 3. the Wildcats motored to Moorhead, Minnesota, where they played the Pcds. This game matched our team with one of the strongest in the conference. Owing to several other football games being played in Moorhead the same day, an agreement had been made to have the Pcds and Wildcats play in the forenoon. The bright sun shone down upon the heavy frost from the previous night and made a very slippery field. Tiuler this handicap both teams struggled valiantly for the championship.
In the opening of the game the Peds forced our team to retreat for several first downs. They then adhered to line bucks in an attempt to score, but to no avail, as the Wildcats concentrated their defense upon the line and the Pcds lost the ball on downs. A punt carried the ball out of the danger zone, where it remained until the latter part of the second quarter. Shortly before the ending of the first half our team opened up with a series of forward passes, which gained for them yard after yard. The Wildcats forced the Peds to retreat rapidly and the ending of the half without a doubt was all that barred our team from completing a touchdown.
In the opening of the second half Moorhead came back strong. Twice they carried the ball to within one down of scoring, but each time the Wildcats rallied and very ably defended the goal. The ball was then punted out of the danger zone, where it remained all of the third and the greater part of the fourth quarters. As the time was rapidly drawing to a close, Moorhead made several substitutions in an attempt to score.

A. C. GAME
The first game of the season found the Wildcats matched against the rugged A. C. Freshmen. This was one of the most important games of the season, because it afforded the Coach an insight to the defects in teamwork. During this game our line played a very creditable game, but this factor was utterly overwhelmed by the lack of generalship in the hacklield. At the end of the first half the Frosh men had completed three touchdowns, all via the end run route.
1 his score was disheartening to Coach Bute's light and untried grid-ders. A brief talk between halves served an inestimable stimulant, as the game proceeded and found every man playing to the full extent of his ability. I his culminated in an impregnable defense and also enabled them to tally. The game ended 20 to 7.

During the rest of the first half very good playing on both sides was witnessed. It was a severely cold day and quite a strong wind was blowing. The ground was frozen. All these factors made it very disagreeable for the gridders on both sides, and none of them seemed to enter into the football spirit. A the latter part of the second quarter our team began to get down to business and it added a second touchdown a few minutes before the half ended.
I'he second half assumed a different aspect. Our players disregarded the unfavorable conditions under which they were playing and began a heavy drive as soon as the half started. Yard after yard the Morris Aggies gave ground until finally their retreat ended by our team making a touchdown. 'Flic aerial route proved very effective for the Wildcats. In several cases it took hut a couple of passes to add another touchdown to the list. The rapid advance of the team afforded Coach Bute a chance to put in his untried subs, which he did. File substitutes displayed well their ability by continuing to pile up touchdowns until the game ended. The final score was 61 to 0.
Due to the bad roads the Ellcndalc team failed to arrive in time to play Armistice dav. The game was then postponed until 2:30 the following afternoon.

A coin was tossed to decide which team would kick off. Captain Kalil won the toss and chose to receive. On the kick-off our team returned the ball to midfield. After several uncompleted passes the W ildcats punted the ball to the Teachers’ twenty-yard line.
