1936 - '
LA CROSSE made eleven first downs to six for River Falls. Each team was
penalized fifty yards. For River Falls, the play of Rendler, Wulf, Staley,
Carow, and O'Brien was outstanding.
The second non-conference game was a night affair with St. Thomas.
Again the Falcons showed superior football technique and came away with a
26 to 6 victory. A brilliant aerial attack and two long runs by Herkal were
essential in the Falcon scoring. Coach Lowery, taking advantage of the large
score, used every man on the Falcon squad. For the locals Herkal, Wulf, Frank,
and Alfonse played line ball.
In the Homecoming contest, a great Superior team made use of the breaks
to defeat a fighting Falcon eleven 13 to 0. Superior presented a team with an
exceptionally large line and a fast, tricky backiield. The first break came early
in the game when Rich of Superior intercepted a Falcon pass, running it t.o the
forty-nine-yard line where he was stopped. Here the Falcons held momentarily
until third down when Gentile broke loose on a thirty-four-yard run to the
fifteen-yard line. Two plays later he scored on a lateral pass from Rich. The try
for point was missed. During the remainder of the half, the two teams battled
on even terms with no further scoring. The Falcons made a strong bid for a
score in the third quarter advancing to the Superior twenty-nine-yard line,
Where Superior t.ook the ball on incomplete passes.

SEVEN lettermen reported to Coach Lowery in his first call for football prac-
tice. They were Captain Merton Wulf, Walter Herkal, Leo Stenback, Donald
Hart, Charles Cudney, Thomas Rendler, and Lawrence Selvig. The Falcon
prospects were hit hard at the start of the season when eight lettermen who
were counted on heavily failed to return to school. After two Weeks of intensive
practice the locals opened the season in a game with Macalester winning by a
6 to O score. This game was played on a rain soaked field and the score was
no indication of the Falcons' superior strength. For River Falls Rendler, Wulf,
and Marr, a freshman, played good ball.
Displaying a brilliant aerial attack the La Crosse Maroons handed the
Falcons their first defeat of the season by a 6 to 0, score. The Maroons scored
early in the second period on the execution of three pass plays which brought
the ball to the Falcon sixteen-yard line. Here Binter, a Maroon halfback, scored
on an off tackle run. The try for point was blocked by Carow, River Falls left
guard. In the third quarter the Falcons made their only serious scoring threat,
marching from midfield to the eleven-yard line, where the Maroon line held.
Late in the fourth quarter the Maroons began a march on the Falcon goal which
carried them to the locals' nineteen-yard stripe. At this juncture, however, the
game ended, preventing all further scoring.

SUPERIOR then began an uninterrupted drive of Seventy-One yards to a
score. The kick was barely good, making the score 13 to 0. On the follow-
ing kickoff, the Falcons attempted a difficult lateral pass which was recovered by
Superior on the River Falls' twenty-five-yard line. ln the closing minutes, the
Falcons fought desperately, but not in vain, to keep Superior from scoring.
The play of the Whole Falcon team was commendable, considering that they
were playing the conference champions wh.o had played together for three
Coach Lowery's Falcons came back in a big Way after the defeat at the hands
of Superior to spoil the Stout Homecoming by beating the Blue Devils 26 to 6.
Rendler, Falcon fullback, led the onslaught on the Blue Devils by scoring three
times. Captain Wulf scored once, and Cudney kicked two points after touch-
down. Stout got her only score in the closing minutes on a pass. Nystrom
made. the longest run of the day to set the Falcons in position for their fourth
and final touchdown. Wulf played line ball: his punting Was especially good,
having an average of thirty-eight yards per kick. Coach Lowery used a total
of twenty-live men, all of them showing up well. The Falcons made eleven
first downs to eight for Stout. The play of O'Brien, Staley, Frank, and Wulf
was outstanding for the Falcons in the line, with that of Nystrom and Rendler
outstanding in the backfleld. -
