PERU 0—KEARNEY 14
A fighting Bobcat team fell before the wide sweeps of the Kearney Antelopes by a 14-0 verdict. Kearney, eager to repeat their '36 triumph, found a pile-driving Peru team resisting every inch of the way.
Peru's line charged with a will, but neither backs nor linemen could keep the Kearney sweeps and off-tackle plays from gaining ground.
Both touchdowns came as the result of blocked punts. At other times Kearney found the Bobcats presenting too strong a line for touchdowns.
Eldred Douglas, Johnnie Green, and Keith McHugh looked best for the Bobcat squad, while Punches was acting captain.
PERU 20—WAYNE 24
The wildest game of the year thrilled a large crowd as the Bobcats lost to Wayne 24-20.
Wayne jumped into an early lead whon they blocked a punt and intercepted a pass to get into a 12-0 lead.
Stark went around end, and then a forward-lateral and another pass put Peru on the long end of a 20-12 score.
The second half was all Wayne, with Bradford passing to make the score 20-18 and Fox bringing the crowd to its feet by running a punt back eighty yards to win the game 24-20.

PERU 0—MIDLAND 13
PERU 7—WESLEYAN G
Midland celebrated its Parents Day by drubbing the Peru Bobcats 13-0. The game was the muddiest tussle of the year for the Bobcats.
The game opened with Midland shoving Peru around but failing to get near pay dirt in the first quarter. However, in the second quarter the Warriors took advantage of the breaks and sloshed down the field to a touchdown. The play then settled back to give-and-take until the third quarter. In this quarter Midland's Warriors brought the sodden spectators to their feet when the mighty Mid-landers flipped a short pass over the lino for their second and final touchdown.
Homecoming fans watched a band of bedraggled Cats punt their way to victory over the Wesleyan Plainsmen. The game, which was a Homecoming feature, was played in a constant rain.
Peru jumped into the game with a roar and started down the field, with Platenberg showing the way. V hon "Platt" injured his ankle. Game Captain Shields took over and crashed his way down the field for the touchdown. Stark plunged over for the point that later meant victory.
Wesleyan scored on a looping pass—but failed in their try-for-point attempt.
From then on, the game rested on the muddy toe of Tommy Major's cleated shoe.

PERU 0—HASTINGS 20
fl socond-half lot-down spelled disaster for a fumbling Bobcat crew on its annual tilt with the Hastings Bronchos.
Hastings, N.C.A.C. champs, presented a rangy band of players who knew how to take advantage of the breaks. Outstanding was the ninety yard march they made on two successive punts. Both punts were fumbled by Peru backs and in each case Hastings recovered. The "punt drive" ended with a touchdown for the Broncs.
Peru, led by Shields and Game Captain Punches, played Hastings on oven terms as far as first down and yardage were concerned. However, passes and fumbles marred the day for the Bobcats.
PERU 13—TARKIO 7
Thanksgiving wishes were answered when the Bobcats pounced on the Tarkio Owls (in place of turkey) and won a 13-7 victory.
Tarkio, Missouri College champs, were hardly a match for the well-clicking Peru team, fl flurry of passes in the last quarter almost scored for the Owls, but Ritter, freshman center, saved the day by intercepting a pass on his own five yard line.
Bert Hall scored the first touchdown on a pass from Shields. Shields later plunged over for the winning touchdown.
Hall, Shields, Ritter, and Majors were outstanding for the Bobcats.
