In a hotly contested battle yeaterday
afternoon. Creizhton and 8t; ThomaJ
played to a lie ncore. The came wa
evenly played throughout, with the scena
of action for the most part In the center
of the field. There were, however, eeveral
opportunities of (coring presented to each
elite, but It proved merely the eicltement
of the moment. Crelghton had the ad
vantage In weight, but the St. Tliomae
bunch overcame thla in speed. They
proved a fait bunch and It Is this par
ticular quality that assisted them mostly
In upholding their perfect record for'tho
season and enabled them to leave the
, campus with a scoreless sheet against
them. Creighton had the better assort
ment of players and a better line. Bt.
Thomas' back field made up of Dough
erty and Coffey was perhaps superior to
Crelghton's but Prucha was outdone by
neither of these men, and consistently
followed lils Interference and went through
for long gains. Prucha played a grand
game and was the most consistent ground
gainer for his team.
But Jap Tamasela may be counted as
the man who saved Creighton from de
feat. He pulled off two pretty successive
plays of the flashy order that proved
the most opportune of the game. On
Crelghton's twenty-yard mark, Jap at
tempted to boot the Lall. The kick was
blocked by a Thomas man and bounded
back two yards. Quick as a flash Jap
ran back, grabbed the ball on a bound
ana eluding four tacklers, succeeded la
advancing the ball about twenty yards

immediately following this, on a fake
pass, Tamaaula made about twenty-five
yards gain around right end and placed
the ball In safe territory. This happened
near the end of tho third Quarter and
the Crelshtun cmliuslantls were glad when
mo whistle blew for a breathing spell.
i ne io preceding quarters were In
teresting, but monotonous. Each team
took turns at advancing the ball, but i
compllshed Httle. Uoth teams frequently
tried forward pisses, but most of them
were Intercepted. Of the many tries at
this play throughout the game, a very
smaii iracuon of them were successful.
ery little kicking was resorted to. In
the second quarter Tamasela tried one
from the forty-yard mark, but It fell far
short of Its mark. In the third quarter

a kick rrom the thirty-five-yard mark
