12 TO 0 8CORE.
PUT SUBSTITUTES IN THE BACK FIELD
Twenty-five Minute Halves Devoted to
Game In Which Doane Made
Distance Only Three
In a game almost dovold of fea
tures or Bpectacular playing the Corn
hUBkers defeated Doano Saturday by
the score of 12 to 0.
Tho afternoon was warm, almost
sultry, making tho work Blow and
Bluggisb. The Cornhuskors woro In
structed in the beginning to take no
chances in attempting to run up a
big score. Cole was content to win
tho game on a narrow margin in order
to savo his linoup intact for the Kan
sas game. Not a Nebraska man was
seriously Injured. Rathbono waB tho
only man who rocolved anything that
might bo called an injury. Early in
the flrst half ho hurt his shoulder
and was taken out nnd Hascall put in
his place at quarter. Rathbono's in
jury is slight, however, and ho will bo
in flno fettle for tho gamo next Sat
urday. Sub Back Field Used.
When tho game started the Nebras
ka regular line was UBed, but a substi
tute back field consisting of Elliott at
full and Sturtzonegger and McDonald
at halves, was sent in. Tho back Hold
subs were not vory well up on team
work. Their work was slow and they
could not act together. Tho inability
of the back field to deliver disconcert
ed the lino somewhat In tho flrst part
of the gamo and throw them off. They
showed Btondy Improvement as the
game progressed however, nnd were
going pretty good before time was
Tho halves woro short, being only
twonty-flvo minutes. ThiB fact, to
gethcr with tho sultriness, of the day
nnd tho icar of Injuries accounts fpr
the low score. Tho team omorged
from tho gamo in such good condition
that when timo was called for tho sec
ond half, Conch Colo Bent tho men
through Borne llast signal work to
warm them up before tholr bath.
About fifteen hundred spectators
saw tho gamp, a goodly number of
whom woro from Doane. Tho Doane
rooters occuplod tho west ond of tho
grand stand and- woro conspicuous by
their colors and their rooting. Somo
good-natured repartees wore ex
changed between tho Doano leader
and some of the Nebraska rooters.
Doane put up a good gamo oven if
they did not score. They have a
heavy team and a good lino. Twice
their line hold heroically' whon the
ball was on their throe-yard lino, but
thoy woro Anally beaten down and tho
ball shoved over for Nebraska's, first
Many substitutes wefo made after
Nebraska' had scored. Wenstrand
went in for Wolcott, Spollmoyor for
Temple and Froltng for Shonka. In
tho last fow minutes Beltzer' and
FrAnck wont in to llvon up the back
Tho gamo was almost devoid of fea
tures. Somtf of Sturtzcncgger's re
turns of punts in the first half were
good one especially when he returned
for over thirty yards. "Stutts' " play
ing was hard at all times and ho suf
forod somo severe bruises in tho flrst
half. The feature of tho game how
over, was Captain Beltzor's groat run
towards tho close of tho second half.
He caught a short punt almost in the
middle of the field and by a fine exhi
bition of dodging, shifting the ball,
and stiff arming, he ran forty-five
yards diagonally across the field to
within five yards of Doano's goal line.
From here Harte carried tho ball over
for Nebraska's second touchdown.
The First Half.
Doane won tho toss' and chose to
defend the west goal. Sturtzenogger
kicked off for Nebraska', Tho ball was
worked sldwly back by Doano, but
they soon lost on a fumble which
enabled Elliott to fall tin the ball,
giving i to Nebraska in tho conter of
the field. A series of punt exchanges
followed, with tho result that tho play
worked Into Doane territory. Nebraska
followed with a touchback. A punt by
Doano brought tho ball to tho center
of tho field, where the Donne lino hold
well and Nebraska punted to their ton
yard lino. A good return was made,
but a fumble followed and Johnsqn
secured the ball.
A forward pass from Rathbono to
Magor made a gain of seventeen yards
for tho Cornhuskors and placed tho
ball on the three-yard lino. Horo tho
Doane lino again hold well, allowing
Harte to make only a single gain. On
the third down Temple carried the
ball for a touchdown, and Rathbono
kicked goal, making tho score six to
nothing for the Cornhuskers.
On the next kickoff Doane fumbled
but recovered, and tho play was soon
in the middle of tho field. Hartwell,
tho captain nnd right end of .the
Doane team, followed with a good end
run. making a five-yard gain. Doane
then punted and Nebraska returned
tho ball down tho field for Bteady
gains on line bucks. On a punt Donne
fumblod but regained the ball, re
punting and Hartwell capturing the
ball for Doano. Another punt fol
lowed and Sturtzenogger roturned the
ball to the same part of the field, tho
Interference of tho Cornhuskers being
good. But aftor a couple of downs
Nebraska lost tho ball on a fumble,
but soon regained it and it was
worked down tho field in the Doane
territory. Timo was called with the
play on the Doano olghteon-j'nrd line.
The 8econd Half.
At the beginning of the second half
Dutch went In for Hobort and Grif
fith for Arnold in tho Doano lineup,
and during tho remnlnder of tho play
a number of changes were made. Early
in the half Nebraska again used the
forwnrd paas for good gains and also
on side kicks. From tho thirty-yard
line in Nebraska torritory tho Corn
huskors carried the ball down tho field
to the Doano twenty-six-yard line, all
of the distance mndo on lino bucks,
with the exception of ono forward
pass. Doane punted on securing the
ball. The punt was taken in by Beltzer,
who made the sensational run of the
day, carrying tho ball from the middle
or the field to within a fow yards of
the goal, which was followed by the
second touchdown for the Cornhusk
ors. Once in the last half tho bull was on
tho Nobraska five-yard line. Doane
kicked a touchback, and while the play
was on the twenty-yard lino Nebraska
was penalized fifteen yards, but n kick
by Beltzer placed tho play well out In
tho field. Nebraska tried for a place
kick during the last half, but this was
blocked and tho Cornhuskors lost
about thirty yards as well as tho ball.
Tho game cloBed with a series of
punts and time was called with the
ball on the Nobraska forty-yard line.
