Green Bay Packers (5-1-1) 6, Chicago Cardinals (2-3-1) 6 (T)
​Sunday November 6th 1927 (at Chicago)
GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(CHICAGO) - After battling both Dame Fortune and the Chicago Cardinals to a standstill here Sunday at Normal park, the crippled Packers, by a wonderful
exhibition of fighting spirit, came back in the closing
minutes of the game and more than earned a tie with
their opponents. The final score was 6 to 6 but in no
way does it show how badly the Blues outplayed their
rivals despite the fact that the Cardinals were a very
much improved team over their appearance at Green
Bay some weeks ago. The game was played before a
small crowd even though the weather was ideal for
football. Quite a few Green Bay fans were mumbered
among those present. Injuries kept three regulars of the
team on the sidelines. Both Cahoon and Rosatti,
regular tackles, were on the bench as was Rex Enright,
who usually does duty at fullback. Despite the loss of
these three, the Blues were in battling every minute and
deserve great praise for the uphill battle which they put
up. For over three quarters of the game, the Chicago
jinx did its best to thrust the Packers into defeat but the
determination of Captain Lambeau and his crew could
not be denied and they finally tied the score by dint of
one of the greatest exhibitions of fighting spirit ever
staged on a football field in this city.
CAPT. LAMBEAU STARS
Outstanding in the lineup, of course, was the work of
Captain Lambeau, whose play during the entire affair,
seemed inspired. The Packer leader, who was playing
his first pro league game at fullback, backed up the line
line a tackling demon, plunged with abandon of a mad
bull and passed with the accuracy and daring for which
no doubt will earn him a place on the All American pro
team. Lewellen also showed gobs of class, his punting
being a great help in keeping the ball in Cards territory
during most of the entire game. But in picking these
players as the stars of the Packer team one must not
overlook the fact that every gridder who played in the
game has a world of credit coming for the fine things
which he did. As stated before the Cardinals were a 
much improved team over their appearance at Green
Bay several weeks ago. Although play was always in
their territory they did fine work on defense especially
on the half dozen or more occasions when the Packers
were threatening their goal. Springsteen especially did
some great work on the defensive and Weller too 
stopped many of the Packer attacks and keeping pace
with him was Duke Slater. McDonnell was the star of 
the backline and he carried the brunt of his team's
attack. Swanson did some nifty passing. During the 
first quarter play was practically always confined to
Cardinal territory. During this period the Blues had one
splendid chance to score. A well timed offensive carried
the ball to a point almost in front of the Card goal post
but the Chicagoans held and forced Dunn to try a field
goal. Red attempted a kick from placement and just
missed by a matter of inches. The kick was high 
enough but just a little bit wide of the posts.
CATCHES HORSESHOE PASS
In the second period play was about the same as 
during the first quarter. However, with just a little time
left before the close of the half, McDonnell, the Card
halfback, tried a long forward pass. He was rushed and
threw the ball only with the hope of getting rid of it.
Dunn and Lewellen rushed over to knock the pass to
the ground and the ball just grazed their fingertips and
bounced into the waiting arms of Weller, who galloped about 15 yards for the touchdown which looked for a time as if it might be the margin of victory between the teams. Swanson missed the extra point attempt. But right here is the place where the Packers started out to show their remarkable fighting spirit. Some dashes through the line and some passes carried
the ball straight down the field and with a scant 30
seconds to play the ball was resting on the Cards' 9
yard line. Captain Lambeau decided to place his
hopes for scoring on a forward pass but in vain for
the pass was incomplete behind the goal. Time after
time during the third and fourth periods, the Packers
rushed the ball down the field with some nifty line
smashing and passing but always when it seemed
as if they surely must score. Dame Fortune came
to the rescue of the Cardinals and a pass over the
goal line was grounded. However, the Bays were not
to be denied. With the game fast drawing to a close,
the Packers came down the field once again.
Passes first to Perry, then to Dilweg, and finally one
to Eddie Kotal carried the ball to the one yard line
from where Lewellen slashed through the line for the
touchdown. Needless to say, joy reigned among the
Green Bay rooters and disappointment among the
Cardinal fans. Dunn tried to win the game by adding
the extra point with a placekick but the kick was
blocked by several Cards, who came through the
line like a flood.
MAHONEY GRABS PASS
But there was one more thrill yet to be dished out to 
the fans. Captain Lambeau tried to pass on which
he was rushed. He attempted the throw to Lewellen
toward the side of the field but Mahoney dashed in
ahead of Lew and grabbed the ball and started a dash toward Packer goal and it looked as if he were headed for a touchdown. However, Dunn caught up to him about on the Packer 14 yard line and downed him, much to the joy of the Green Bayites. Things sure looked dark for a minute but the Packers had already had too many  tough breaks to lose the game on such a break as this.
ONLY ONE SUBSTITUTION
And after a few plays it was all over, even the shouting. The Cards tried two rushes without gaining much yardage and then Swanson missed a field goal attempt by a city block. The Bays put the ball into play on the 20-yard line and Capt. Lambeau slashed through for a chalkmark. On this thrust, the Bay leader was hurt and had to leave the game. Basing replaced him. This was the only substitution made during the game by the Bays. It was a tough game for the Blues not to win but a half hoof is better than none especially when you have to battle not only Dame Fortune but your opponents as well. And the "old dame" sure was the best player in the lineup of the Cards and Chris O'Brien owes her at least a vote of thanks. And it might be added too that the work of Referee Durfee during the game was highly pleasing and he handled it to the satisfaction of all concerned. He followed the ball closely and made his decisions as he saw them, despite the hostile Cardinal crowd.
GREEN BAY -  0  0  0  6 -  6
CHI CARDS -  0  6  0  0 -  6
2nd - CHI - Bub Weller pass from Mickey MacDonnell (Kick failed) CARDS 6-0
4th - GB - Lewellen, 1-yard run (Kick failed) TIED 6-6
DAYTON HOPES TO BUMP OFF PACKERS
NOVEMBER 8 (Dayton) - The Dayton Triangles are going to make their second football pilgrimage of the season to Green Bay, Wis., on Sunday and Manager Redelle has a hunch that this time out his team will get even for the 24-0 early season trimming received at the hands of the Badger state champions.Since the
fray with the Packers, the Dayton club has just about played around the circuit and there isn't a city in Joe Carr's football loop that wouldn't welcome the Triangles back again...WHIP YELLOWJACKETS: After the upset at the hands of Green Bay, Dayton journeyed to
Frankford and whipped the Yellowjackets, 6 to 3. The
Triangles returned home and took a 6 to 3 beating at
the hands of the New York Yankees. Dayton had the
combat sewed up until the last three minutes of play
when Bullet Baker received a punt and dashed 60 yards
down field for a touchdown. Frankford wasn't satisfied
with the licking received by Dayton so Redelle and his
crew were invited back again. This game ended in a 0-0
tie and even the most loyal Yellowjacket rooters were
forced to admit that their club was lucky to escape
another reversal. Immediately after this game, the
Triangles boarded a train and rode all night to Chicago
for the game with the Cardinals. It was even up until the
last minute of play when Chris O'Brien's mob pushed
over a single touchdown...FUMBLE IS COSTLY: Oct.
23, the Daytonians performed in Providence and took
the short end of a 7 to 0 count. A costly fumble in the
third quarter put the Rhode Islanders within scoring
distance and the Conzelman club made the best of the
opportunity as Pritchard plunged across for the only
marker of the game. The next Sunday saw Dayton 
playing in Chicago against the Bears at Cubs park. The
Ohioans held a 6 to 0 lead until early in the fourth
quarter when the Bruins got going and pushed across a
couple of touchdowns. In between league games, 
Dayton has found time to tackle outsiders and the
Triangles emerged successful in both games. The 
Canton Bulldogs fell by a 13 to 0 count while the 
Columbus Tigers succumbed, 21 to 3. The Dayton club
has a reputation of being a great ball-hawk aggregation.
In other words, the Triangle players are right at home
when it comes to grabbing fumbles. Graham, the giant
guard, scooped a loose ball in the first Philadelphia
game and lugged his 240 pounds for some 70 yards
and a touchdown...SCOOPS UP FUMBLE: In the fray
against the Bears, Belanich, one of the best tackles in
the National league, picked up the cowhide after it had
been dropped by an overhasty Bruin and a touchdown
resulted. One of the Bears tackled Belanich as he
passed the 10-yard stripe but he struggled over for the
score. Sneeze Achui, the flying Chinaman, has found
the pro game very much to his liking. Experts predicted
that Achui wouldn't be able to stand the gaff but he is
still going strong. His own field running has featured
several of the Dayton game...TAYS AT QUARTER: Bill
Tays, quarter, joined Dayton shortly after the Packer
game. He has had a lot of pro football experience as he
was with the Chicago Cards for three seasons. He is
somewhat of a pass specialist. Earl Britton, who
cleared the way for Red Grange when he was at Illinois,
is turning in a great job at fullback and he hasn't been
outclassed this year when it comes to punting. The
kicking duel between Britton and Lewellen should be a
great one for the spectators.
TURNSTILES CLICK MERRILY AT PRO FOOTBALL
CONTESTS
NOVEMBER 8 (New York) - Professional football has
made and paid its own way in the sports world this fall.
Despite the absence of the noisy opposition which for a
couple of seasons served as "attention caller" to the
professional game, the turnstiles are clicking busily and
Charley Pyle and Joe Carr are wearing broad smiles.
Charley told me recently that his New York Yankees,
who opened the season on the road and are not due at
their home stadium until tomorrow, should net him a
cool $50,000 this year. And the Yankees, for all they
have Red Grange, are only one of 12 teams in the NFL,
which Joe Car is president. For the past two seasons,
agitation against professional football sent a lot of
people out to parks to see what it is all about. Once the
opposition died away, it became a question of whether
pro football could draw sufficient gate receipts to pay its
way. Obviously, professional football can do that very
thing. Pyle's record of receipts at the Yankee's games
in the middle west showed a constant increase. And
the more attractive games are yet to come. What do
the men who play the game get out of it? If Charley
Pyle expects to make $50,000 for a couple of months
on the sidelines, what of the not-so-youngsters who toil
and and grovel in the mud of midfield? The average
player, who has not an "All-America" tag to make him a
drawing card, gets around $100 a game. The stars get
what they can command. Red Grange, of course, is
part owner of the New York Yankees. Pyle's team is
better paid than some of the others, because its
opportunities for money-making are greater. The 
linesmen receive from $100 to $200 a game, but are
required to practice each day when there is not a game,
so that their incomes are restricted, for the most part,
to what they make out of professional football. Charley
estimates that his Yankees cost him around $3,500 a
week. He carries 21 men on the squad, although the
number eligible for any one game is limited to 18 by the
rules of the NFL. Professional stars like Grange, Eddie
Tyron, "Wild Bill" Kelly, Benny Friedman and others
naturally are in a position to make pretty fair dough out
of the business. At least, it is better than selling bonds.
Pyle is ready at any time to make attractive offers to
college stars. The rules forbid his doing so until the 
close of the intercollegiate season. They also forbid a
college player joining a pro team until the autumn after
his graduation. But the rules can't prevent the promoter
and others from looking ahead and speculating on just
how much "Pudge" Hoozis, the demon halfback of dear
old Harvard, will be worth as a gate attraction next year.
Charley Pyle knows football. He talks eagerly of college
stars. A certain eastern halfback had scarcely reached
the headline in the Sunday papers last month before
the promoter was asking all about him, was he really
good, could he kick and run and pass, and, most
important of all, stand out for the grandstand?
PACKERS WIND UP SEASON AT HOME SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 9 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Sunday
the Packers will make their farewell appearance of the
1927 football season at home and it is the hope of the
Green Bay Football corporation directors that the fans
will turn out en masse and show Capt. Lambeau and
his sturdy gridders that their efforts of the past couple
of months have been appreciated. In speaking about
Sunday's game with the Dayton Triangles, A.B.
Turnbull, president of the Green Bay Football corporation, had this to say: "We are in hopes that Sunday's crowd will be one of the largest of the season. The Football corporation has gone to a lot of expense in order to keep faith with the loyal fans who purchased season tickets on an eight game basis."...DAYTON FINALLY BOOKED: "The withdrawal of Buffalo from the National league has put us in a hole so far as home games were concerned but, through the assistance of Joe F. Carr, president of the National league, we were able to put through a schedule shift and the game with Dayton was closed. From a football point of view, it should be a great game. The Dayton club looked mighty good in its first appearance here early in September and scores of their most recent games show plainly that Dayton is a tough outfit for any team in the league to beat."...HAVE SEVERAL STARS: "Grange's New York Yankees only nosed out the Triangles in an 'eleventh hour' rally and the Ohioans were leading the Bears right up until the final quarter. In Earl Britton, fullback; Belanich, tackle; Graham, guard, and Achui, halfback, Dayton has several players who are making a strong bid for all-American profession football fame. The Packers are still very much in the fight for the National league championship but the hardest part of their schedule is ahead because, following Sunday's game, the Green Bay club will be on the road for the remainder of the season. Green Bay is known the country over for its football spirit and Sunday will be a good time to show it. I trust that there will be an unusually large crowd in attendance and the enthusiasm so great that the players will still be remembering it when they go battling down the long football trail for national honors in the larger cities like Chicago, Philadelphia and Providence."...INVITE SCHOOL TEAMS: The Packer management has invited the football squad from twenty-five of the leading high schools in Northeastern Wisconsin to be guests at Sunday's game. The scholastic gridders will all be parked in the north stands. At least five hundred youthful knights of the cowhide are expected to be present. The Bays came out of the Cardinal fracas in pretty good shape. Capt. Lambeau's side is giving him some trouble but, according to Dr. W.W. Kelly, the Bays' leader will be fit to go when the whistle blows. The other players, who saw action against the O'Brien-Chamberlin aggregation are O.K., it is said. Rosatti, Cahoon and Enright are about ready to go again. These players haven't seen action since Red Grange played here. They could have been used last Sunday but Capt. Lambeau wisely kept them on the bench so as to have them "fit as a fiddle" for the remainder of the season.
LUMBERJACK BAND TO MAKE CHICAGO JAUNT FOR BEAR ARGUMENT
NOVEMBER 9 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Football fans have approved the plan to send the Lumberjack band to Chicago for the Bear game on Nov. 20. A.C. Witteborg has volunteered to head the fund gathering committee and other businessmen have pledged their assistance, financial and otherwise. Contribution buckets will be passed around the City stadium on Sunday during the Dayton-Packer game and it is hoped that the donations will be heavy enough to carry the load without any further efforts. In the meantime, the member of the Legion band, who will turn Lumberjacks for a period of about 24 hours, are getting together their hob-nailed shoes, rough mackinaws and corduroy pants for the occasion. And about next Tuesday, the musicians will start letting their whiskers grow so as to complete the lumberjack picture. Both railroads are running excursions to Chicago for the Bear game and it is likely that there will be about 3,000 Green Bay fans down there at Cubs park, rooting for the Packers. And how!
PACKER TITLE CHANCES ARE GOOD
NOVEMBER 10 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Chasing down the home stretch of the National league pennant chase, the Packers have a corking good chance to cop the 1927 championship. Right now, the Big Bay Blues are only one game behind the pace setting New York Giants and the margin should be whittled down to a percentage table "half game" by Sunday night as the New Yorkers have a non-league game engagement booked while the Bays give battle to Dayton. Here is where the "if" comes in. If the Packers win the four remaining league games on their schedule, it is hard to figure how they can be kept off the top of the heap. However, a single defeat will puncture the championship dream bubble...THREE LEAGUE GAMES AWAY: The Big Bay Blues tangle with the Dayton Triangles here Sunday. Then they start a three game road trip, facing the Bears in Chicago on Nov. 20; the Yellowjackets in Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day, and the Steamrollers in Providence, Dec. 11. The couple of open dates in between Nov. 24 and the Providence affair will probably be filled in with non-league teams, the results of which won't cut any figure in the percentage table. A glance at the dope bucket shows that, on paper, the Packers have a bit of an edge on Dayton, Frankford and Providence. However, the Bear game is the big hurdle for Lambeau & Co. The teams met once this year and the Bruins emerged a victory by a one point margin. However, the Packer players are determined to reverse the verdict in the game which will be played at Cubs park, Chicago, a week from Sunday...TRIO OF TEAMS BUNCHED: There is no question but that the National league race has simmered down to three clubs, the N.Y. Giants, Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers as every other team in the loop has lost three or more games. The N.Y. Yanks, Providence and Cleveland might be considered in the running but the three leaders would have to hit the skids fast in order to have any of the secondary trio climb to the top of the heap. The Chicago Bears have a tough program ahead. Sunday, the Bruins entertain the Pottsville club in the Windy City. The Miners have looked a bit better of late and they may make things interesting. The following Sunday,
Nov. 20, the Packers face the Bears and there should
be plenty of fur flying...PLAY CARDS, THEN GIANTS:
Thanksgiving Day, the Bears mix with their old rivals,
the Chicago Cardinals, and this won't be any parlor
soft match either. Following this match, the Bears jump
a train and head for New York where they mix with the
Giants on Nov. 27. Saturday, Dec. 3, sees the Bruins
still in the east playing the Yellowjackets at Frankford
and as soon as the game is over both clubs jump on a
train and speed to Chicago for another fracas Sunday.
Sunday, Dec. 11, Duluth is booked for Cubs park. This
is a tough series of games and the Bears sure will be a
wonder team if they emerge with a clean slate. As said
before, the Giants are idle this Sunday. On Nov. 20,
the New Yorkers are playing at home against the
Chicago Cardinals. They have no league game booked
for Thanksgiving Day but will eat turkey and store up
some additional energy for the Nov. 27 tilt with the
Chicago Bears at the Polo Grounds...N.Y. SERIES
OPEN DEC. 4: The New York interseries starts on Dec.
4 with the Yanks playing at the Giants park. A week
later the scene shifts to the Yankee stadium and if the
series is even the clubs will meet again on Dec. 18.
The dash down the final lap promises to develop into a
red hot finish and, if the Bays can ride through to four
victories, there won't be any "if" to it about the 
championship teams because it is pretty near a sure
bet that both the Bears and Giants will drop at least
one if not two games.
LEAVE SATURDAY MORNING
NOVEMBER 11 (Dayton, OH) - Headed by Manager
Redelle and Coach Carl Storck, the Dayton Triangles
will leave here Saturday morning for Green Bay, Wis.,
where on Sunday, they are scheduled to have it out with
the Packers in a National league game. This will be the
Triangles' second invasion of the Badger football 
metropolis this season. Early in September, the Dayton
club played the Packers and took a 14 to 0 licking. 
However, this time out the Triangles hope to change the
story and smother the Green Bay dreams of a National
league championship. According to Coach Storck, the
Dayton club is ready for the whistle. The team took a
layoff last Sunday and is ready to go again. Practice
sessions have been held all week and special attention
had been given to a pass defense because Coach
Storck knows that the Packers for years have had a
nasty habit of always filling the air full of footballs.
BULLETIN
NOVEMBER 11 (Columbus, OH) - President Joe Carr
of the NFL has appointed a trio of Chicagoans to work
the Packer-Dayton game in Green Bay on Sunday.
Bobbie Cahn will referee; Meyer Morris it to do the
umpiring while George Lowrie will be in charge of the 
line sticks.
500 SCHOOLER WILL PACKER-DAYTON GAME
NOVEMBER 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - Some 
five hundred gridiron warriors from Northeastern 
Wisconsin and upper Michigan will be the guests of the
Green Bay Football corporation at Sunday's game
between the Packers and the Dayton Triangles at the
City stadium. From Menominee on the north and to 
Fond du Lac on south, the future stars will come and
the Bay management has made arrangements to house
them all together in the north stands. It is quite possible
that between halves the schoolers will enliven the
afternoon by cutting loose with some of their alma
mater yells...ACCEPTANCES POUR IN: The invitation
from the Packer management had been in the mails but
a dozen hours before replies came rushing in from the
principals, all of whom were enthusiastic over the
chance for their students to glimpse the Big Bay Blues
in action on the chalkmarked field. And according to
Capt. Lambeau, the Packers will cut wide open their
bag of tricks and show the school boys how it is done
in a professional way. The youngsters, who have read
so much about the famous Packers, will get a chance
to see all the favorites in action as changes will
probably be frequent in the Green Bay battle front. The
weather this week hasn't been so good for practice but
the team has been splashing around in the slush just
the same. One experience with Dayton taught the
Packers that they will have to be on their toes if they
expect to keep the bacon at home.
PRO FOOTBALL GOSSIP
NOVEMBER 11 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
Providence Steamrollers startled the pro football world
by holding the Chicago Bears to a no score tie.
Conzelman and his crew didn't show much on the
offense but defensively they had a shade on the Bruins.
..Wildcat Wilson, the Providence ace, turned in a
wonderful exhibition of punting and his soaring spirals
got the Steamrollers out of many a tight spot. Driscoll,
the Bear field goal expert, went bad on four attempts...
With a certain Mr. Grange still decorating the sidelines
and rubbing his ailing knee, the New York Yankees
were submerged in the mud at Luna park, Cleveland, by
the Bulldogs, 15 to 0. The Pyle-men never had a
chance...Despite a muck-covered cowhide, Benny
Friedman hurled the oval with deadly accuracy. It was
two of his bullet-like tosses that paved the way for
Cleveland scores. One goal was kicked. The other two
points were a safety...The old rivals, Frankford and
Pottsville, made it 50-50 in their weekend gridiron
carnival. The Jackets copped the Saturday argument at
home to the tune of 10-0 but the Miners took the
Sabbath day fracas, 9 to 0...Pete Henry, one of the real
veterans of $$$$ football, flashed in the limelight for
Pottsville Sunday against the Hornets. He booted a field
goal, 23 yards out. The Miners' touchdown was made
by Joe (Whippet) Carr...The Duluth Eskimos found the
New York Giants just a bit too tough to snowshoe over.
Nevers and his clan battled all the way but the
Broadwayites passed and slashed their way to a well
deserved 21 to 0 victory...McBride, the Giants' fullback,
had a perfect day with his educated toe against the
Eskimos as he kicked three out of three extra points.
The New York Giant touchdowns were negotiated by
Mule Watson, Hinky Haines and Wyckoff...The Green
Bay Packers invaded Chicago and battled the Cardinals
to a 6-6 tie. Chamberlin's crew counted in the second
stanza when Brute Weller grabbed a pass after two of
the Bays partly knocked the ball down...The Packers
knotted the count in the last five minutes of play. Three
well executed forward passes carried the oval 60 yards
down field and Lewellen knifed the line for a touchdown.
The Cards blocked the goal attempt...Before the Packer
-Cardinal game started, William Brennan, one of Chris
O'Briens's veterans, was presented with a purse of
$1,000 by his admirers. The husky guard is going good
in his twentieth year on the chalk-marked field...Uncle
Charlie Moran has severed his football connections with
the Philadelphia Yellowjackets. The gridiron mentor who
put Centre college on the football map, found the
postgraduate game rather difficult going...Youngfleisch,
the Pottsville center, is still confined to the hospital with
the fractured leg that he suffered in the game against
the Giants. His absence is felt by the Miners as the
Villanova product was showing class...Horse Edwards,
who a few years back ran a pro team in Cleveland, is
working often as an official in the National league. The
ex-Notre Dame gridder is drawing many of the important
assignments in the Chicago district...The Chicago Bear
management pulled a good stroke of business when
Tillie Voss was picked up. The majority of the managers
figured Voss' football days were over but he is more
than earning his money at end for the Bruins...Bull
Lowe is burning up the gridiron at a wing position for the
Providence Steamrollers. His defensive play against the
league leading Bears earned him plenty of ink from the
scribes on several Chicago players...A pair of former
Illinois players are the newest additions to the rapidly
changing war front of the Frankford Yellowjackets. Pug
Daugherty is a first class fullback while Kassel was a
star end in his "rah rah" days...Kotal, who was kept
under cover by the Green Bay Packers for two seasons,
has earned a regular job in the backfield. He comes
from Lawrence college at Appleton, Wis. Kotal is very
much at home in the passing attack...Jones is proving
to be a handy man in the Cardinal lineup. He started
the year at halfback, then was moved up into the signal
position. When Bucklin was put on the hospital list, the
​veteran Ben stepped into fullback...Brute Garvey, who
made football history at Notre Dame a few years back,
is a prominent cog in the New York Giants' machine.
Garvey is a husky individual and he likes his football.
This combination is difficult to beat...In Graham, De
Weese and Kinderline, the Dayton Triangles have a
first class center trio. Graham and Kinderdine are
veterans of the postgraduate field while De Weese is
making good in his first year of pro football...Several
intersectional games are billed Sunday. The Chicago
Cards play the Yanks in New York; Duluth performs in
Providence; Pottsville goes to Chicago to tackle the
Bears while Dayton is scheduled for Green Bay.
PACKERS AND DAYTON MEET SUNDAY
NOVEMBER 12 (Green Bay Press-Gazette) - The
Green Bay Packers, model of 1927, will make its final
appearance of the season at home Sunday afternoon in
a NFL game against the Dayton Triangle. As usual the
whistle will blow at 2:15. The Ohioans are coming here
with an all-star lineup which includes Achui, the only
Chinese playing big time football; Earl Britton, the
husky fullback, who in his college days at Illinois did a
​lot to put Red Grange into the big headlines and Bill Graham, a graduate of the school of hard knocks, who looks like a sure bet for a guard position on the all-American professional selection...PLAYED HERE
BEFORE: This is Dayton's second appearance here this season. The Triangles invaded the Bay early in September and took a 14 to 0 beating after an exciting battle. Ever since that time, Manager Redelle of the Dayton club sought a chance for revenge and when the Buffalo eleven did a fade out, the way was paved for the Triangles to make a return trip here. The Ohioans have played nearly every club in Joe Carr's wheel and all around the circuit they are rated as a tough eleven to beat. Providence, Chicago Bears and Cards and New York Yankees have whipped the Triangles but, in every case, it wasn't until the final minutes of play that spelled defeat for Redelle and his gridders. Dayton started the Frankford Yellowjackets on the downgrade and the Pennsylvanians haven't righted themselves yet...500 SCHOOL FOOTBALLERS: The Packers will probably perform before their most critical audience of the season Sunday, because some 500 high school footballers and their coaches from Northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan will be in attendance as guests of the Green Bay Football corporation. Many of these gridiron stars of tomorrow have never seen the Big Bay Blues perform and it is a good bet that the schoolers will be "all eyes" for everything that happens on the playing field. The high school squad will be parked in the north stands and it is possible that they may get noisy with the their yells at halves. Good officiating is assured as Bobbie Cahn will be tooting the whistle as referee. Working with him are two other Chicagoans, Meyer Morris and George Lawrie, both of whom have seen service here this season...CHINESE IN BACKFIELD: The Triangles have a Chinese and Hawaiian in the backfield and both of 'em are first class footballers. Sneeze Achui, a Chinese, played three years of varsity football at the University of Dayton and got away with flying colors. He was also a track man and was credited with stepping the century in 10 seconds flast. Achui is a first class open field runner and splendid receiver of the forward pass. His partner is August Cabrina, Hawaiian, who was Achui's teammate at Dayton U. The Islander bobbed into gridiron fame in 1925 when playing against the Haskell Indians, he nabbed a pass and dashed 78 yards down the field for the only touchdown of the game. Achui and his sidekick, Cabrina, were the pass luminaries for Dayton U two years running. The Chinese does the majority of the tossing with the Hawaiian on the receiving end...EXPECT BIG CROWD: Indications point to a big crowd at the Packers' "farewell party". Tickets have been moving fast since they were put on
sale and there has been a heavy demand for ducats from out-of-town customers. Packer ticket men will pick up all uncalled for pasteboards when they make the rounds of the places having ducats on sale Saturday night. However, a ticket office in The Press-Gazette building will be open Saturday night and Sunday morning from 9:30 until noon to handle the out-of-towners and those who delay until the 'eleventh hour' to purchase their tickets.
