Football MIDLAND GAME Our next game was with Midland. It was a championship game as both teams were undefeated. Comparative scores showed that they were well matched. The day was a poor day for football as a high wind was blowing making punts and passes hard to guage. The Lutherans played for end runs and off tackle smashes. Their line was hitting low and their interference was too much for Peru. On the other hand Peru could not get started. They sifted through and got our man before the play was hardly started. The final count was Midland 30—Peru 0. We had lost our first game and furthermore it was our only loss. The game was a success in one way in that it brought out the best in many of the fellows and showed them what they could do when called on. Frary at end and F. Bell at half played the best defensive game. DOANE GAME On November 3. we met old time rival Doane. The teams were out to show how well they could come back after a loss. Peru started their match from the very start and scored in the first quarter Bitzie going over on a line plunge after a series of plunges and passes had placed the ball on the 3 yard line. Peru scored one touchdown in each quarter, the game ending Peru 27—Doane 0. This was another game won because we had a team working as one man. WAYNE GAME On November 17. Peru met Wayne on their field in the game that was to decide the champion of the Nebraska State Teachers’ Colleges. The game was close and neither team could get away for any long gains. In the second quarter M. Bell picked up a fumble and was off to a touchdown. Soon after. Bitzie smashed through for another counter. The second half was scoreless and so Peru had won again. That 14 to 0 score gave us the championship of the Teachers’ Colleges and placed us where we were sure to land in second place at the close of the season. COTNER GAME The last game of the season was with Cotner on November 24. If Peru took this one it meant that we stood next to Midland. The team lost no time in piling up a lead. They fairly ran themselves down. Before the game ended every sub got a taste of real stuff. They felt that a good score would also help our standing and so finally stopped at 47 to 0. This ended a most successful season with six victories and one lone defeat. Every game that Peru won was decisive as Midland was the only team to score against us. One Hundred One

l-'noth.ill I3I)e football Season of 1922 When Coach Speer gave his call for football candidates the resulting squad looked none too good. There were Capt. Willy, Rothcrt, Bitzie, Frary, Faunce and Pomeroy to begin with but the other twenty were an unknown quantity. Coach Speer went at it as he always does in that determined way and the team soon began to show championship form. YORK GAME The first test came on the home field with York as the opponent. It was an ideal game from Peru’s standpoint. Although half the team were new men they played as veterans. Capt. Willy, Rothert, and Bitzie advanced the ball yard after yard. Frary and Gilk showed their ability to share passes and the line was a stonewall at all times. The final score was Peru 43. York 0. MARYVILLE GAME The following week found our team on foreign soil. After a tiring auto ride they wound up at Maryville, Mo. Here they met their first real opposition. The game see-sawed for the first half with most of the playing in middle field. In the third quarter Peru worked the ball down to the goal and was balked twice by being offside. Bitzie then dropped back and booted a drop kick. It appeared as though Peru was to be held to a 3 point lead until in the closing minutes of the game Bitzie intercepted a pass and was off to a touchdown. Although we were victorious the game came very near being a costly one as Capt. Willy was injured and could not return with the team. KEARNEY GAME October 20, our sister college arrived for the annual battle. Kearney was near the top of the ladder and brought a heavy team to take the measure of our Bobcats. There was no feeling of confidence in Peru as the game started. Willy was still out and the team missed his leadership. Kearney pushed to the 5 yard line at the very start but were held for downs. Peru could gain but little and Kearney was punting at every chance. Delzell as safety was having trouble holding their punts and they kept the ball in our territory a good share of the time. It was not until the third quarter that Peru found herself. They then went down the field and Frary took it over on a pass. We scored another touchdown in the closing minutes of play the game ending Peru 12—Kearney 0. One Hundred

This game was played during the Home Coming and was enjoyed by the old “GRADS” who were unable to see the Bobcats in action during the regular season. The teams were evenly matched and out for blood. In the first quarter the Sophs were stopped on the 5 yard line after it looked as though they would surely score. The Krcshics put in their best bid for a touchdown in the latter part of the first half but were held for downs. The second half started with a rush, both teams determined to break that 0 to 0 tie. The third quarter was also scoreless and until the closing minutes of the game looked as though it would end a tie. The Freshies had the ball in mid-field and on an attempted pass Fritz Rothcrt slipped in and took the ball and was ofi' for a touchdown. After a 40 yard run he was brought down on the 5 yard line. One the third play the SOPHS took it over for the only count of the game. In a few minutes that were left the Freshies fought with all their might but their morale was gone and the Sophs won the closest game of the season 6 to 0. One Hundred Two
