Jayhawkers Draw a Blank



Lawrence, Neb., Nov. 17 — Nebraska university beat the crippled team representing Kansas university on McCook field this afternoon by a score of 12 to 0. The Nebraskans got a touchdown and kicked goal in the first half ten seconds before time was up and then got away for seventy yards and touchdown five minutes before time was called in the second half.

The game was close throughout and was the most interesting seen here this season. Both teams were in an inferior condition. Cook and Montgomery are almost sick and in no shape to play the game although Montgomery played a beautiful game. Captain Brew has two broken ribs which are only partially healed but he had them well padded and played a great game. Neither Odle nor Tucker, Kansas two best men, were in the game, and Morton, the big guard, was out. Schrant and Pouppit were also in bad shape, but played well. Breece, Kosend and Cook, the Nebraskan fullback, were the only men who were forced to retire.

Manager Tukey was very much pleased with the work of the Lincoln team and although he expected a little higher score he said he had no kick coming Nebraska held Kansas on its forty-yard line at the beginning of the game and from then on the Nebraska goal was never in great danger. Nebraska found line bucks the most satisfactory policy, while the Jayhawkers made their gains around the end and through tackle.

Drain made two good runs on a double pass play. Crandall, Brew, Montgomery and Drain made the gains for Nebraska, while Captain Wilcox, Breece, Copping and Quigley played fine ball for Kansas university. Kansas made free use of quarterback punts but could not gain on them. The game was very clean, there being no slugging at all and Kansas was the only team to be penalized for breaking of rules. The Jayhawkers held the Referee Low relieved them of ten yards. Nebraska will not play Washburn but will return to Lincoln at once.

Kansas kicked off thirty-five yards and Nebraska punted. Kansas tried a quarterback kick and Nebraska got he leather but lost it on a fumble. Quigley got away for twenty-five yards around the Nebraska end but Kansas could not get further than the five-yard line. The ball stayed in Nebraska territory for some time, but after changing several times Nebraska pushed Cook over by a series of line bucks. Ringer kicked goal.

The second half was very hotly contested, the ball being in Kansas territory most of the time. Finally Drain caught Quigley a punt and with beautiful interference by Brew an Crandall made seventy yards and a touchdown. Ringer again kicked goal. The game ended with the ball in Kansas possession in Nebraska territory.
