The football season this year was climaxed when the Deadwood Bears defeated the Lead Gold-
diggers to the tune of 24-13, thus clinching fourth place in the Black Hills Conference.
The season opened with the Bears meeting the Gillette Camels. The Bears defeated Gillette,
Following the Gillette game, there was a three-week layoff before the Bears played their next
ball game. Coaches Burgess and Ferguson believe that this layoff hurt the team considerably.
The next game was with Hot Springs. Deadwood downed the Bison, 20-6.
Homecoming Day, October 2, the Deadwood Bears played Belle Fourche's Broncs. It was a tight
game all the way through. The Bears were plagued with furnbles after long drives. The Bears lost
this game to Belle, 19-6.
The Bears next traveled to Spearfish for Spartan Day. Deadwood, being injury riddled, started
slowly. The first half ended 12-0 in favor of Spearfish. In the second half, the Bears came back to
overtake Spearfish, only to lose the garne in the final seconds of play. The final score: Spearfish,
183 Deadwood, 13.
The next week, the garne with Sturgis turned out to be the biggest surprise of the season to many.
It was the first and last time the rugged Sturgis team has been held scoreless at the end of the
first half. The Bears were without the services of many of the regulars. In the second half, with
the Scoopers' superior power, Deadwood was worn down.
Deadwood's next game, in which they defeated the Custer Wildcats 25-6, and brought the Bears
back into the win column, seemed to be the turning point in the elimination of "fumbleites," and
the improvement of teamwork and timing.
In the final game of the season, Deadwood defeated the Lead Golddiggers on the mountain top
field in Lead. The Bears operated like a machine. All the players contributed toward winning this
game. Deadwood pounded out a total of 352 yards rushing and 17 first dovnms. Deadwood defeated
Lead, their traditional rivals, 24-13, to end the 1954 season.
