GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(Green Bay) - The Packers scoring machine swung into action on Sunday afternoon at Hagemeister park, and as a result the American Legion footballers of
Kaukauna went home on the short end of a 56 to 0
score. It looked like a real football game during the first
two periods but in the final half the visitors went to
pieces and the Packers practically scored at will.
During the last two periods, the Packers piled up 42
points in the opening half they only counted a pair of
touchdowns. Captain Lambeau's squad looked more
like the Packers of old. The week's practice evidently
did them a world of good. The line charged well, opened
good holes for the backfielders and showed a lot of
class on the defense. The interference was much
improved and the men carrying the pigskin was given
plenty of protection. Every man on the squad had a
chance to play and the reserves, with the exception of a
few minutes in the third quarter, gave a good account of
themselves. McLean, Martell and Bero showed a lot of
LINDHAUER IS STAR
Red Lindhauer, quarterback, and Regenfuss, full, were
the luminaries for the visitors. Lindhauer was the big
man on the defense while Regenfuss proved to be a
good ground gainer. There was no scoring in the first
quarter. The Packers has the upper hand in this period
but Kaukauna would brace when in the shadow of the
goal posts and hold for downs. This happened three
times in this quarter. At the start of the second period,
the ball was in the Packers' possession and it looked
like a sure touchdown but Kaukauna held for downs on
the yard line, however, their punts were poor and the
Packers recovered the oval on the 20 yard marker. On
the second play following, Lambeau scored a
touchdown and kicked the goal. The next score came
easier. Kaukauna kicked off and Medley started his
forward pass game. Abrams and Dwyer making some
nifty catches. During these mixups, Rosenow injured
his knee and Medley got a bang in the neck. Both were
taken out. The Packers continued their forward march,
however, and with the oval on Kaukauna's 15 yard mark,
Dalton threw a forward into Lambeau's arms for the
second touchdown. Lambeau kicked the goal. That was
all the scoring in the first half.
SCORES CAME EASIER
Touchdowns came more frequently in the closing
quarters. The Packers kicked off. Kaukauna kicked
after the third down. On the Packers' second line up,
Lambeau heaved a long forward to Martell who scored.
The next touchdown was quicker. Regenfuss received
the Packers kickoff and when tackled by McLean
fumbled the oval on Kaukauna's 10 yard line. It was the
Packers' ball and Lambeau bucked tackle for the score.
After this touchdown, Kaukauna staged a comeback.
On receiving the kickoff, the visitors started a steady rush down the field which never ended until the Packers' 25 yard line was reached. It looked bad for the Packers but a Kaukauna back fumbled on a line plunge and Gavin recovered for the Packers. This was the visitor's last gasp and for the rest of the game, the Packers rang rings around them, Dalton making three touchdowns and Medley one.
