M. N. A. Wins on a Fake.
On a plowed an uneven field the
Columbus high school lost to Nebraska
Millitary Academy at Lincoln in the
last three minutes of play. The game
was won on a fake forward pass and
goal was kicked, making the score 6
to 0. It was no disgrace to be beaten
this way, for if luck had not broke
against them, the home boys would
have tied the score and maybe won
Sidney Collins, Nebraska Military's
coach, who for three years were the
Scarlet and Cream at the State Uni
versity, and was known all over the
west as the best center in the Mis
souri valley, if not in the middewest,
admitted that his team was outplayed
by the home boys. He said in part,
"We won not because of superiority of
team, but because of an injury to one
of our oppnents. The score that would
have more nearly shown the compara
tive standing of the two teams would
have been to. Without a doubt you
are a stronger team than David City. ' '
A return game was refused.
C olumbus won the toss and N. M.
A. kick ed off to Rector, who returned
ten yards. A pun ting duel, mixed
the forward passes and other open
plays was kept up during the first
quarter, which ended with the ball in
their 35-yard line. The second quar
ter, and in fact the while game, was
largely a punting duel, andColton had
a small shade the better of it. Sch
mocker tore off some good gains, he
making ten yards at a time on several
occasions. The half ended with the
ball on their 10-yard line.
To start the second half, Colton
kicked to N. M. A. The quarter en
ded with the ball in Columbus' pos
essionon their 25-yard line. The last
quarter was a repetiton of the ojthers.
N. M. A. finally recovered a punt on
Columbus' 25-yard line. Then the
line twice and then Weler scored the
only touchdown of the game on a fake
forward pass. Goal was kicked.
There were only three minutes left to
play. Colton kicked off to them and
the half ended with the ball on their
Columbus made their downs more
times than N. M. A. did. The game
was marred by the slugging of the
Military boys' 270-pound center.
Late in the game' he hit Cady on the
eye and the big fellow retired in favor
of Kinsman, Cassin going to right
Columbus' ground gainers were
Schmocker, Kaufmann and Kinsman.
Kaufmann played a star game and
Lincoln spectators say there is not a
better high school player in the state.
He broke through the line on 'a tackle
and ran forty yards to within ten yards
of their goal, where he tripped on the
uneven ground and lost the cnance for
a touchdown. He made several big
gains. He and Kinsman both tore off
good gains. Schmocker was the best
ground-gainer among the back-field,
and was used to good advantage on
Colton ran the team well. The
home guards were hammered at in
vain, and Cady, too, deserves credit
for his clean game. The home boys
were out-weighed ten or more pounds
to the man and little Jake Glur look
ed like an ant among a bunch of ele
phants. The line-up: Columbus: Glur, right
end; Kinsman and Cassin, right tack
le; Ernst, right guard; Cady and Kin
sman, center; Hartman left guard;
Kaufmann, left tackle; Viergutz, left
