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

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.

AFTER battling ,on even terms for the first half, which ended nothing to
nothing, Eau Claire's powerful football machine got rolling to run up
twenty-seven points and handed the Falcons their third defeat of the season.
The first half appeared to be slightly in favor of the locals even though they
made only two first downs to Eau Claire's three. Long runs by Cudney and
Rendler were the feature of this half. The Falcons lost their best opportunity
to score in the second quarter when Wulf attempted to lateral after he had
caught a pass thrown by Herkal. Eau Claire recovered on her own sixteen-
yard line and the Falcons never threatened again until the closing minutes.
In the second half a pass by Eau Claire, and interception of three River Falls'
passes led to four touchdowns and a final score of 27 for the Zornadoes. River
Falls outfought Eau Claire in the first half, but the failure of her passing attack
in the last half led to the defeat. Outstanding for the Falcons were Wulf,
Staley, Frank, and O'Brien in the line, and Cudney and Rendler in the backfield.
In the final game of the season, the Falcons played the Milwaukee Green
Gulls, one of the strongest teams in the Southern Conference. The Falcons
showed their superiority in every department of the game except passing, but
were able to score only once. Rendler scored in the third quarter on a fifteen-yard
plunge behind excellent interference. Again Rendler and Captain Wulf were
the outstanding men on the field,
