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.

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
