Guard Halfback Guard Tackle End
The first marker against Kearney was the result of a little co-operation between Toft, who broke through to block a kick, and Pike, who fell on the ball to give Peru a 6-0 lead. Zook made it 12-0, when he galloped 62 yards off tackle late in the first quarter. Pike chalked up the final of the day early in the second half, when he scooped up a Kearney fumble and scampered 35 yards to a touchdown. This victory placed Peru in a tie with Omaha University for the front seat of the N. I. A. A. conference chariot.
Now, since a tie is no way for a new conference to end its first year, the Bobcats entrained for Omaha where they vanquished the Cardinals, 37-0, and, needless to say, were the first champions of the N. I. A. A. conference. The Graf-coached machine was complete master of the situation, not because of any lack of fight in the Cardinal lads, but because the Bobcat was howling for a state championship—and a Bobcat will not be denied.

N. I. A. A. competition was first afforded Peru by the ancient foe, the Chadron Eagle. It was Homecoming Day and the Bobcats, performing before some 500 Alumni, were not to be denied. Chadron threatened in the first half with a beautiful array of short passes, but neither team scored. In the second half Zook, with the aid of Sautters and Hart, crashed over for a brace of markers to give Peru a 13-0 victory.
A Kearney antelope strayed too far into eastern Nebraska and the Bobcat, being somewhat hungry from a two-weeks lay-off, when snow caused the cancelling of the Wayne game, called together Captain Bunch and his cohorts for a 21-0 feast of venison.
Gray skies and mud were on the weatherman's program that day, but regardless of the fact, the Peruvians made the best of their opportunities to score three touchdowns and a safety.

In the Omaha game, Young scored six points on a pass from Krejci. After that Peru, led by the “human tank,’’ “Swede” Hertz, who that day was a team in himself, scored almost at will. With Bunch, Riggins, Brockman, Williams, and Toft opening holes in the Cardinal line, the big “Swede” never failing to gain, and with the team functioning as one man, there was no doubt, even in the minds of the most pessimistic, that when the Bobcats entrained for Peru they would have another state championship tucked under their belt.
Captain Bunch, Krejci, Hertz, Delzell, Grass, Harry Williams, Ralph Williams, and Simpkins brought their football careers under the blue and white standards to a close with an 18-0 Turkey Day victory at Tarkio College. Tarkio never had a chance after Hertz and Hofmann stopped Hoover’s wild dash up the sidelines on the opening kick-off. The Bobcats scored three times in the first half despite a cold driving rain and a sea of mud.
