,,. 1. f .4 W 1 Kroeger White FOOTBALL 1939 NON-CONFERENCE GAMES COACH LOWF.RY'S 1939 Falcons opened the season September 22 in a night game, at Gustavus Adolphus College. The Golden Gusties, with one game behind them, defeated the lighter, inexperienced Falcons 19-0. Only the line lighting spirit of the Falcons kept the Gusties from winning by a larger margin. Russell Buckley, captain and speedy left halfback of the Gusties, scored the three touchdowns. Outstanding in the game for the Falcons was the ine punting of Trecker, which re- peatedly stood off touchdown marches, and the fine defensive play of Diermeier backing up the line and Trecker from his halfback position. The Falcons opened their 1939 home football season on Saturday, September 30, by defeating the strong, fast Stevens Point Teachers 10-7. The tilt was scoreless until, in the third quarter, a long pass, Trenkel to Fritch, connected for their lone touchdown. The extra point was then added to make the score 7-0. River Falls also tallied in the third quarter on a series of long gains by Trecker and Vandeberg and a plunge by Vandeberg for the score. Dubbe's try for point was good and the score stood 7-7. The game was climaxed and won in the last' five seconds when Dubbe dropped back to the forty-five-yard line and booted a perfect place kick between the uprights to give the Falcons a 10-7 victory. The entire team played good ball but Trecker, Vande- berg and Schulenberg were outstanding for the day. The Falcons ended their 1939 football season Saturday, November 4, with an impressive 9-7 win over Winona Teachers. Winona led the Minnesota Teachers College Conference and was undefeated prior to their meeting with the Red and White. River Falls scored in the second quarter when Boettcher crashed over right tackle from the twenty- four-yard line. Dubbe's attempted placement was blocked. Ralph Spen- cer, Winona fullback, scored for Winona after blocking a River Falls punt and passing into scoring position. Andrejack kicked the extra point and Winona led 7-6 at half time, but River Falls completely dominated the play during the second half. ' Boeifcher Bartz Gerhard?

Schmidfr LeDuc FOOTBALL 1939 CONFERENCE GAMES RIVER FALLS opened the conference season with a heartbreaking 12-7 loss to the Superior Yellowjackets at Superior, October 6. The Yellowjackets opened the scoring in the first quarter after Rich returned one of Trecker's punts from midlield to the eighteen-yard- line. Paquette, Yellowjacket fullback, carried the ball to the eight- yard-line. On the fourth down Rich plunged over center for the score. Cirilli's attempt for the extra point was wide. In the second quarter the Falcons were stopped six inches from the goal and the half ended River Falls 0-Superior 6. In the third quarter a recovered fumble by Kroeger gave the Falcons possession of the ball in Superior territory. Trecker on reverses and plunges carried the ball to the eighteen-yard- line. Bartz stepped back on the fourth down and passed to Kroeger in the end zone. Dubbe kicked the extra point to put the Falcons in the lead 7-6. The rest of the game was played in the Yellowjackets' terri- tory, but the Falcons were unable to score. Bartz, apparently off on a touchdown run, stumbled and fell when in the clear and another drive was halted. With two minutes to go the Falcons decided to attempt another pass. Paquette intercepted on the dead run and with the aid of good blocking ran sixty-five yards to a touchdown. The game end-ed with the Red and White on the Yellowjackets' fifteen-yard-line. Out- standing for the Falcons were Trecker, Bartz, and Boettcher in the backfield and Schmidt and Schulenberg in the line.
