SOUTH DAKOTA 8CORE8 ON -A
Men Show Strong Defensive and Offen
sive Work, But Fumble the
With the weather the warmest it
has ever been for a football gamo tho
varsity defeated South Dakota by a
score of 42 to 6. Tho fumbling of the
vatjlty at critical times was all that
prevented tho score from being much
highor. Case, the South Dakota man,
distinguished himself In getting tho
ball on a fumble, and running the en
tire length of tho field for a touch
down. At another time Bromley
snatched the ball after it was downed
and made a touchdown, but the referee
did not allow this.
'Nebraska found tho South Dakota
ends easy, and as a result several long
and spectacular runs were made. Den
slow Is crodltod with, tho longest run
of the game, for after tearing around
the end and dodging tho back field, ho
ran flfty-flvo yards for a touchdown.
Tho work of Taylor and Cotton on
line plunges was as good as over seen
on tho Nebraska gridiron. Borg at
center and Weller at tackle also played
great games. Johnson at end was
easily tho star of Saturday's game, for
at all times he was" sure In his taclc
ling, ah excellent ground galnor and
showed more head work than any
other man oh tho team. The work of
the back field Was indeed very grati
fying to tho scarlet arid cream sup
porters. A number of J36uth Dakota players
left tho game, in bad condition. Bennett-had
his,collarbono broken in two
placesand Bromloysuffored a fracture,
of three ribs. The visitors wora'badly
crippled by tho. loss of their captain,
Bfo'wn, who was hurt in tho Yankton
gamo and was unable to como to Lin
coln. Tho rooting in the Dakota game was
very enthusiastic and strong. Tho or
ganized rooters squad appealed for
tho first time and did excellent work.
South Dakota was not forgotton, but
given a very enthusiastic; reception.
The varsity appreciates the work of
the., rooters moro than anything elso
tho students can do and for this rea
son the rooters are to bo commended.
The game in detail is as follows:

teams took their places on the field.
Evans kicked off for South Dakota,
pending tho .ball whirling toward Ne
braska's goal. Weller received tho
bpll on the twenty-five yard lino, and
tnade a good run of twenty-five yards
before ho was brought to the ground.
On tho first play Cotton was pulled
back and glvqn the- ballbnt he tum
bled" after carrying it fivo yards, but
recovered it again. Cotton's work in
Saturday's game In falling on thot ball,
was of. very high order. South Da
kota was putting every, bit of strepgth
and energy they could Into their do
enae and Jop this reason.' tho gams
were 'small.' After advancing to the
centefybf tho field Morse fumbled, and
tho South Dakotatrgot tho ball ofi their
fifty-two yard line. Dakota 'then tried

our line In a play directed against
Nelson, and ho yielded, allowing an
advance of three yards. Lattln and
Bromley made two and three yard
gains, but after the ball had pro
gressed seven yards, Nelson braced
and Cotton was given a trial by Lattln,
but could not gain an Inch. Nebraska
received the ball on downs on hor own
forty-eight yard lino.
Nobraska again began a slow ad
vance through South Dakota's line.
Schmidt was then tried for an end run,
and made twenty-five yards around
left end. This was tho first long run
of tho gamo. In tho next -play, Wilson
carried tho ball to tho five yard lino
and was tackled around tho neck, tak
ing out time to recover from his In
jury. In one more play Taylor was
pushed over for tho first touchdown,
nine minutes after the kick-off. Cot
ton missed tho goal. Score, 5-0.
Cotton received the ball on tho next
k!ck;off and carried It back to tho Ne
braska forty yard lino. Denslow and
Johhson gained easily by good end
runs, but at tho fifty yard lino tho
ball was fumbled and. Tolofson fell on
It Bromley and Lattln tried both
sides of the lino, but ailed to gain.
Bennett punted, but Wqllor broke
through tho lino and blocked the punt,
falling on tho ball on Dakota's twenty
yard line. Cotton plunged through tho
lino .for ten yards, but on a second
attempt" was downed after advancing
five yards. Mason went through cen
ter for tho remaining two yards and
a touchdown. Morse kicked ' goal.
Tho varsity was offside at tho next
klok-off and was penalized five yardB
and required to kick tho second time.
Lattln received the ball for South Da
kota and .returned it to tho thlrtjr-flve
yard line. Here he was downed by
Johnson 'in pne of the prettiest tackles
of the day. Cuppet fumblod, Denslow
tried to nick un the ball, hut fnltod nnri

four yard line,
Morse gave the signal
for a lino buck by Wilson, j)ut ho

Case's hands. Tho noxt thing tho
spectators were conscious of was a
South Dakota man tearing across tho
field with tho ball under his arm. Tay
lor was tho nearest man, ten, yards In
tho rear, and while ho made a noblo
effort to catch Case, he Boon out-distanced
him and planted tho ball back
of Nebraska's goal posts". Walker
kicked an oasy goal, making tho score
6-11. This was the first score of tho
season against Nobraska.
Little wont In for Wilson, who was
hurt early in tho gamo, but had stuck
with tho game rogardless of his In
juries. South Dakota recolyed tho ball
on hor twenty-fivo yard line, but was
unable to gala against tho varsity.
A five yard penalty for offside play
forced them to punt, Walker punting
to Morse, who returned It to tho con
tor of tho field, whoro ho fumblod It
when tackled, Nelson -falling on, tho
ball. Nebraska made short gains and
onco barely prevented a loss of the
ball 6n downs after a five yard pen
alty. Again tho varsity continued tho
forward march to South Dakota's ton
yard lino, when Morse again fumbled
and South Dakota took tho ball,
Walker punted to the center of tho
field and Morso returned It twenty-five
yards. Nobraska again forced" tho ball
to within a foot of their opponent's
goal, whoro Bromley made tho spectav
tors groan by snatching tho ball aftor
It as down and running tho entire
length of the field for a touchdown.
But Referee Cornell refused to allow u
touchdown and tho ball was carried
back to tho South Dakota goal. In
one moro play Taylor forced tho ball
over tho lino for, a touchdown. Morse
missed tho goal. Scoro, 1C-6. Morso
downed the ball on the kick-off on tho
thirty yard lino and a quarterback run
by Morso around left end advanced tho
ball thirty yards. The last- run of this
half 'was a spectacular one, by Llttlo
around loft end for 'a touchdown near
tho corner of tho fiold. Morse tried a
kick out for position to. Johnson, but
missed and Nebraska lost its chanco
for a goal. Eager wont into "tho gamo
