GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(CHICAGO) - A field goal by Paddy Driscoll from the 40 yard line during the first quarter greased the skids for the Chicago Cardinals to defeat the Green Bay Packers Sunday afternoon in the Windy City by the score of 3 to 0. If ever a club deserved to win a pigskin
encounter, the Packers did. The Bay piled up twice the
yardage of their opponents but, when within scoring
distance, the Packers failed to grasp the opportunities
for a tie game or a possible victory.
MISS FIVE FIELD GOALS
Four times did Cub Buck fizzle out in tries for field goals
while late in the final period, Lambeau missed a drop
kick from the 40 yard mark by less than a foot. In the
third quarter, one of Buck's attempts hit the upright and
then bounced. Another inch inside would have done the
trick. During the third inning, it looked as if the Packers
sure would score. The aerial attack was working
superbly and the Cards were running around in circles
trying to check the air drives. Lambeau heaved a long
pass to Tillie Voss who lit out for a score but he was
dumped on the 8 yard line. Here the Cards presented a
stone wall. Lambeau got a yard off left tackle. Basing
got about the same distance. Then Lambeau ran around
left end and was downed with little gain, but the pigskin
was resting before the uprights. On the next play, Buck
made his kick that hit the uprights and bounded back.
KEPT ON FIGHTING
But the Packers kept on fighting right up until the final
minute of play. Pass after pass was thrown with telling
effort. Several times it looked as if Mathys would get
away. Once Hendrian made a splendid gain after
grabbing the pigskin and Basing was also much in the
limelight. This method of attack had the Cards beating a
hasty retreat. The Packers were making first down with
due regularity and it wasn't long before they were within
scoring distance again. With the ball on the 25 yard
line Buck stepped back for another try and the crowd
held its breath. The ball went wide of the goal posts and
the Cardinal rooters breathed easier. The Cards
scrimmaged on their 20 yard line. They made two first
downs and then Driscoll kicked to Hendrian, who made
a pretty return to the Packers' 36 yard line. Once more
the Blue avalanche began functioning superbly. With
the time slipping by, the Packers were more desperate
than ever and they battled as no Packer team ever
RESORT TO FORWARDS
The Packers were passing on every play and try as
they might the Cards couldn't stop the advance. Twice,
tosses that meant scores were missed by bare finger
tips. The Cards were baffled and Manager O'Brien made
several shifts in his machine in an attempt to check the
advance. The Bays worked the ball within the Cards' 30
yard mark. Here the Chicagoans stood fast on three
downs. Then Captain Lambeau in a dying attempt
stepped back to the 40 yard marker for a drop kick. The
ball seemed headed for the goal posts, it had plenty of
distance and height, but a wisp of the wind blew up and
carried outside the upright by about a foot. The groan of
the Green Bay rooters must have been heard in
Evanston. For the remainder of the game the play was
in Packer territory.
OPENING QUARTER FAST
There was plenty of action in the first quarter. A penalty
for offside cost the Cards 5 yards on the first kickoff. On
the second boot, Driscoll kicked to Lewellen. Three
plays netted little yardage and Buck punted 60 yards
down the field. The Cards got a first down but then hit a stonewall. Driscoll kicked to Mathys who was bumped on the Packers' 30. On a fake kick, Buck tossed a pass to Lambeau for a ten yard gain (This was one of the bag of tricks). Lewellen fumbled and it was Chicago's ball on the Packers' 40 yard line. A first down put the Cards in scoring distance but Driscoll failed on a field goal, and it was the Bays' ball on their own 8 yard line.
DRISCOLL KICKS GOAL
Buck kicked from his own goal line to Driscoll who was downed about 35 yards from the Packers' goal. Three rushes netted but a few yards and Driscoll stepped back to the forty chalker from where he sent the oval skimming through the goal posts for the only score of the game. For the remainder of the quarter, the Packers held the edge and when time was called the Packers had the ball on the Cards' 35 yard mark. After two plays in the second quarter, Buck missed a field goal from 35 yards. The Cards scrimmaged on their 20 yard line. Several first downs grouped around a 30 yard dash by Driscoll carried the ball well within Packer territory. The Packers blocked a drop kick by Driscoll and recovered the ball on the 20 yard line.
HOLD UPPER HAND
From this stage of the game, the Packers held the upper hand. Lambeau's team cut loose with a sweeping attack and down the field marched the Big Bay Blues. Mathys mixed up his attack nicely and the yard sticks were pegged up rapidly. The offensive took the ball down to the Cards' 20 yard line, where after a trio of line smashes, Buck tried another placekick and failed. Driscoll soon punted out of danger and once more the Packer offense swung into action. When the half ended the ball was in the Cardinals' possession on their own 40 yard line.
PLAYED GREAT FOOTBALL
Every man on the Packer team played great football. Mathys was catching forward passes from every possible angle. Captain Lambeau was a demon on the defense. Dutch Hendrian put up a wonderful exhibition while Basing and Lewellen frequently bobbed into the limelight. O'Donnell and Voss never looked better on the wings while Buck and Rosatti at tackles often dumped the Card backs for losses. The Packer center trio, Woodin, Earps and Gardner, can rightfully be likened to a stonewall. As for the Cardinals, it was all Driscoll. The brilliant Paddy was never better. He was in the center of every play. Driscoll carried the ball over half the time. He called signals, did all the forward passing, punted well and lest we forget kicked one field goal that robbed the Packers of a well deserved victory.

NEWS AND NOTES
OCTOBER 6 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - To the victor belongs the spoils but in Sunday's game at Chicago against the Cardinals the Packers carried off all the glory except the percentage table count. And that's what hurts. The Bays gained over twice as much yardage as Chris O'Brien's hirelings but that one boot by Paddy Driscoll kept the Chicagoans' record clean...So far as attendance figures go, the turnout was disappointing. Chicago boasts of huge football crowds but the Packers have yet to see it in dollars and cents. At Sunday' game, there was only about 2,800 paid admissions and at least 300 of them were from the Bay. The Packer management has to be satisfied with their guarantee as the percentage of the gate
