Scoreless at tho end of the first period find beaten, 9 to 6, at the whistle of the half, Stlehm's Cornhuskers came back with a determined rush In tho last half and defeated Ames, 19 to 9. The game waa one of the most fierce!- fought ever staged on State field. A howling crowd . of 6,000 witnessed the defeat. Excepting tho first quarter, when It! looked gloomy for Nebraska, It waa Ne braska's game. In the first period It looked all Ames. Dut the Cornhuskers came back on tho field In the last, halt a different crew, outdoing Ames' dashing offense with the same llne-batterfng. style of play. ' Ueck, Towle, Rutherford, Coffee, Ilalllgan and Elwell divided the honors for Nebraska, neck's uncheckable . llnet (l smashing and scoring waa the brilliant feature of tho game, The star left-half scored two touchdowns for Nebraska; Halllgan, acting as captain Instead of Towle, scoring the .third and final touch down. Rutherford at right-half played a censatlonnl smashing game, he being shot Into and forced through the Cyclone line time an dagaln for gains that made uroups of successive downs In succession. He was the backbone of tho Nebraska defense In tho first quarter and the main spring of Nebraska's overwhelming of- ! fenso through the rest of the game, until he was wracked so severely by the stub' born Cyclone defense that he was taken out In the fourth period to be relieved by eDlamater, who did not fall short of Rutherford's magnificent game to any j degree. j Ames started the game with a dash- 1 tearing speed that sw.cpt Nebraska down the field. In the first quarter tho Cyclone backs piled Into the 6ornhusker line with ease. The Ames attack In the Initial period was merciless, the Nebraska line cffrelng a resistance as futile as a high school defense. Ames' backs plowed great caps In the Nebraska line, making gains of three to seven yard at a plunge. It invariably be ing up to the Nebraska secondary de fense to stop the Cyclone, backs after they had smashed through a hole In the line. But the Nebraskans delayed the rush In the socond period and stopped it and turned the tide In the third and fourth. Wilson, the Ames half who laid out Tollfson, tho great "Gopher" quarter, and since has been out of the game as a result of that tackling, pounded the Nebraska defense to pieces, he, Davta and XJhl butchered the line for long chunks of Cornhusker territory. Bron nan. fighting little Ames' quarterback, who gave the Cyclones all they got In the way of scoring. In tho first quarter he crossed the Nebraska goal for the third time that that deed has been done this season- Brennan received the klckoff on his own twenty-two-yard Hue, Jerked himself loose o fthree tackles, dodged the clus tered Nebraska defense and race seven tyelght yards for a touchdown, hotly chased by the entire Nebraska team. Shortly after Brennan scpred Ames' only touchdown and Ames had driven the ball back from one of Howard's long punts to Nebraska's thirty -eight-yard line, the Cyclone general dropped back near! yto the fifty-yard line and booted with a light wind high above the bar between the posts. The first quarter closed with an Im- v i 1 VL ' , , ; "? "c baU was In the possession of Nebraska on Ames one-yard line.
