Nebraskans Do Not Score



This Time the Kansas City Medics Defeat the University

KANSAS CITY, Mo Oct. 28 — The semi-professional university medical college team defeated Nebraska university at Exposition park this afternoon by a score of 24 to 0.

The Nebraskans expected defeat, but they had hoped to make a better showing. They played pretty good ball throughout the game, but the seasoned medics, some of whom have played football for six or eight years, were too much for them at every point. The Nebraska line was seldom able to withstand the medic rushes.

Benedict was Nebraska's bright particular star. Half the gains that the team made were due principally to him.

Heller the "holemaker" did the best work for the medics. He played for years on the Kansas university team, and was a member of the semi-professional Ottawa university team that made such a record a few years ago. There was one squabble during the game, over a touchdown, which Nebraska objected to because the ball had been picked up out of the lines. After a lengthy wrangle, Nebraska carried her point, and the touchdown was not allowed.
