Lucente Deiss FOOTBALL 1939 CONFERENCE GAMES IN the second quarter River Falls took the lead with two quick touch- downs. Trecker, Vandeberg and Boettcher carried the ball to the Stout thirty-five-yard-line, then Trecker passed to Schmidt on the one-yard-line where he was stopped cold. Vandeberg on a brilliant sweeping end-run crossed the goal standing up. The try for point was wide. After the next kickoff Stout was forced to punt and White, Falcon end, blocked the kick. Dobberstein, Falcon tackle, picked up the ball and fell over the goal line for a touchdown. Again the try for point was wide, and the half ended with the Falcons leading 12-7. Early in the fourth quarter Keough faked a pass and ran twenty-five yards for a touchdown without a hand touching him. Moe kicked the point and Stout led 14-12. In the closing minutes of the game the Falcons, playing their best ball, carried the ball to the Blue Devils' twenty-Eve-yard line. Trecker faded back and tossed a perfect pass to Schmidt in the end zone for the score. The try for point was blocked. Stout, in desperation, tossed passes right and left in the final seconds only to have Trecker intercept one in midfield to stop their attempt to score. Boettcher, with his Hne plunging and defensive work, Trecker, with his good punts and passes, and Gerhardt, with his hard blocking and tackling, were the stars of the game. Saturday, October 21, the Falcons traveled to Eau Claire where they were defeated for the second time in conference play. Eau Claire Teachers used a strong passing attack varied with a formidable running game in defeating the Falcons 20-12. Eau Claire scored in the first seven minutes of play on a series of passes and plunges. Poquette scored from the ten-yard-line. The try for point was good. The passing com- bination, Poquette to Sequin, again placed the Zornadoes in position to score. fi M s- - i :Q i wk - I1 11 Schulenberg Dobbersfein Vandeberg

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.

Rivard lsaacson Frank Nickerson Dubbe A FIFTEEN-YARD-PENALTY on the Falcons placed the ball on the one-yard-line and from there Poquette plunged over. The extra point was added and the score stood at 14-0. An Eau Claire fumble in the second quarter gave the Falcons the ball on the twenty- five-yard-line. Trecker picked up five yards and Vandeberg broke loose to score standing up from the twenty-yard-line. The try for point failed. In the third quarter Dubbe blocked an Eau Claire punt and Boettcher, playing heads up ball, recovered on the four-yard-line. Bartz plunged over for the touchdown. Dubbe's placekick was wide and the score was 14-12. With but six minutes left to play a bad pass from center put the ball on the Falcons' Hfteen-yard-line. Trecker's punt was blocked by Ormstad, Eau Claire guard, and the ball bounced into the end zone where half the Eau Claire team recovered it. The attempted conversion was wide and the game ended. Dubbe, Gerhardt and Trecker played outstanding ball for the Falcons. The Falcons suffered their third conference defeat at the hands of the LaCrosse Indians, October 28. The Indians went on a scoring spree and buried the Falcons to the tune of 34-7. Kelly, the Indians' star back, picked off the opening kick-off and returned it 80 yards for a touchdown. The try for point was good. The Falcons came back strong, but were stopped on the Indians' twenty-yard-line. After an exchange of punts Vandeberg scored on a sweeping end-run. The try for point was good and the score was tied 7-7. With Lass, Bahr, and Rouscla leading the running attack and the entire Indian lineup putting on an exhibition of blocking and tackling, the Indians scored twice in the first quarter, once in the third quarter and twice in the Hnal quarter. The Indians put on a show of offensive power that was augmented by perfect blocking. The Falcons, however, did not admit they were beaten, but gave their best in an attempt to score. Dubbe, Schulen- berg, and Vandeberg were especially outstanding, as the Falcons were handed their worst defeat of the year.
