GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - Backed by a thousand Green Bay rooters, the Packers triumphed over the Milwaukee Badgers in the Cream City Sunday afternoon by the score of 17 to 10 in a thrilling exhibition of pigskin chasing before the biggest crowd that had wended their
way to Athletic park this season to see a pro league
game. Some 3,800 spectators paid their way into Otto
Borchert's backyard. From the opening kickoff until the
final whistle, it was a real "He-man's" football game.
Both teams were keyed to the highest pitch for the
encounter and the spectators saw a superb exhibition
on the gridiron.
CINCH STATE TITLE
By the victory, the Bays cinched the Badger state
professional football title for the eighth year in
succession. It was a well deserved win as the better
team won. Even the Milwaukee sport scribes admitted
this. George Downer, who is a football authority, was an
interested spectator and after the game, the Milwaukee
Sentinel sport scribe handed out this bit of praise to
Captain Lambeau and his Packers: "I have seen many
professional football teams but never saw an eleven
that went the way Green Bay did against Milwaukee.
The Packers offense was wonderful while that stand in
the final period on the 2-yard line was worth going miles
to witness. There is a certain spirit to the Packers
which is missing in other pro teams. Green Bay has
got mighty good reason to be proud of its Packers and
I guess it is from the turnout at this afternoon's game."
MADE TO ORDER DAY
Conditions were ideal for football. There was enough zip
in the air to keep the players moving fast. The playing
field was in superb shape, being mighty fast under foot.
The Green Bay crowd jammed the section set aside in
the west stand. The Bayites came early and they kept
up a continual din all through the fracas. The Milwaukee
rooters led by a cheerleader sat directly across the
gridiron and the battle cries of the rival rooters echoed
back and forth across the field. "Come on Dunn" was
the rallying cry of the Milwaukee crowd. But Dunn didn't
come on to any great extent except once in the fourth
quarter when he topped off a Milwaukee drive by
scooting around end to the Packers' 2 yard line.
BAYS BRILLIANT DEFENSE
This play led to the greatest bit of defense ever
uncorked by a Packer team. It was first down and the
touchdown only 2 yards away. Dinger Doane, one of the
best line plungers on the postgraduate grid, was
stopped without a gain. Winkelman gained about a
yard. Once again, Doane failed to gain. On this play, a
Milwaukee forward was way offside, even the
spectators saw but Head Linesman Engel must have
been suffering from blind staggers. Finally, Winkelman
slid oozed over with but an inch to spare and "Come
On" Dunn kicked the goal. After this touchdown, the
Packers kicked off. Two Milwaukee passes went into
discard and then Dutch Hendrian nabbed a toss from
Dunn and the Badgers' goose was cooked. It was
Green Bay's ball well in Milwaukee's territory. With but
a minute to go, Lewellen advanced 2 yards; Hendrian
got 3 yards, and followed with 13 as the final whistle
BUCK GETS FIELD GOAL
In the first quarter the play was pretty well even up for
seven minutes. Mathys put the Packers on the road to
a field goal by a sensational play. It was the Bays' ball
on their own 23-yard line. Buck stepped back to kick,
but instead tossed to Mathys, who grabbed the ball
with one hand and dashed to Milwaukee's 30-yard line
before he was dumped. Lambeau gained 13 yards on
an ends run. Three plays netted scant yardage and
Buck brought joy to the Green Bay rooters by pushing
through a placekick from the 30-yard line. Milwaukee
kicked off. The Bays made several yards and Buck
punted. The ball was in midfield when quarter time was
DUNN TIES COUNT
On the third play of the second period, Dunn passed to
Swanson for a 20-yard gain. This put the ball on the
Bays' 25-yard line. Conzelman couldn't advance but
Dunn brushed the dust off his educated toes and
booted a field goal, knotting the count. The Bays
kicked off. Soon after Swanson was injured and Mooney
took his place. Several exchanges of kicks gained
considerable yardage for the Packers. With five minutes
to play, the Packers started a march down the field but
it was cut short when Head Linesman Engel saw well
enough to slap a penalty of 15 yards on the Packers
for holding. Two passes went astray and Buck kicked
over the goal line. Milwaukee scrimmaged on its twenty
but was soon forced to punt. The Packers chalked up a
first down and they had the ball on Milwaukee's 28-yard
line when the whistle piped for halftime.
LEWELLEN REPLACES BASING
Lewellen replaced Basing at the start of the third
quarter. Milwaukee opened hostilities by kicking to the
Bays. After three rushes Buck kicked far down the field.
The Badgers counted gain and Dunn got off a wretched
punt. It went out of bounds on Milwaukee's 44 yard line.
And then the Packer touchdown march started.
Lambeau and Hendrian made a first down. Lewellen
pierced the line for another ten yards. Hendrian got 9
yards in two plays and Lewellen smashed for a first
down, putting the ball on Milwaukee's 5 yard line.
Lewellen got three and followed along with one more.
Then Hendrian crashed for a touchdown and Buck
kicked the goal. Milwaukee kicked off again. Three
rushes netted little and Buck booted to the Badgers' 25
yard line. Dunn made five yards and a pass to
Winkelman advanced the pigskin ten. Conzelman
grabbed a toss for a 15 yard gain and the ball was on
the Packers' 45 yard line. Winkelman tried a placekick
but the ball was blocked. Milwaukee recovered in the
melee. Voss intercepted a Milwaukee pass and rushed
it back to the Bays' 47 yard line. Soon after Buck
kicked to Dunn who made a free catch on his 19 yard
line. Dunn lost a yard than got two when the quarter
ended with the ball in Milwaukee's possession on its
own 20 yard line.
PACKERS SCORE AGAIN
Milwaukee was soon forced to kick and, after three
plays, Buck returned the compliment. Voss downed the ball on the Badgers' 5 yard line. Milwaukee kicked at once and Lambeau was dumped on the Badgers' 40 yard mark. Lambeau got eight yards and a pass to Voss netted 15 more. Lewellen made three, Hendrian smashed for five and Lewellen made it a first down, 7 yards from Milwaukee's goal. Lambeau added two. So did Lewellen and Hendrian. Lewellen than plunged through for a score. Buck kicked the goal. The Bays kicked off and Milwaukee opened up with a "prayer" passing game. The prayers worked and the Badgers gained considerable yardage which led up to Dunn's skirt around end, the Packers' brilliant stand on the 2-yard line and Winkelman's touchdown.
PLAY GREAT FOOTBALL
The Packers played great football. O'Donnell and Voss turned in a neat job at the ends while Buck and Rosatti couldn't be improved upon at the tackle. Woodin, Earps and Gardner, the Bays' center trio, could be likened to a stonewall. Despite the rough treatment, Mahtys weathered the storm at quarter and carried off his share of glory. Basing gained ground consistently. Hendrian was in the thick of the fight all the time while Captain Lambeau continued his super brand of football. Lewellen came into his own and proved to be a sensation of the game. "Come On" Dunn was the Milwaukee ace. Jimmy Conzelman bobbed into the limelight frequently while Swanson went well until he was injured.
