Neither University nor Kansas City can score



Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 27 — Neither the University of Nebraska team or the Kansas City Medics were able to score in the football game played at Exposition park here today. The Medics had the best of it throughout the game, playing most of the time in Nebraska territory, but they could not get the ball on Nebraska's five-yard line, but lost it on downs, and Nebraska punted it back to the center of the field. In the second half they crossed Nebraska's ten yard line, only to lose the ball on a fumble, and Nebraska again punted.

The Medics' goal was never in danger at any stage of the game. Both teams were heavy and the game was fast, with much punting. In fact, it was largely a kicking contest, and that it was played mostly in Nebraska's territory was due to the fact that Toland, the Medic's fullback, was a far better punter than Cook, Nebraska's fullback.

The Medics also worked several tricks for good gains. On straight defensive work and in bucking the line, the Nebraskans were easily the equals of the Medics. Crandall was the star player for Nebraska, making frequent though no very long, gains through the line and around the ends. Brew, Nebraska's captain, played the first half with a broken rib, but had to quit. Ryan and Montgomery also got bad cuts over the eyes and went out in favor of substitutes. There was a big crowd at the game and much excitement.
