GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(GREEN BAY) - The Oshkosh All-Stars may be a good football team, but it has a lot to learn about the brand of football played by the Green Bay Packers. In the opening professional football of the season at the City stadium Sunday, the Packers convincingly demonstrated that there is a world of difference between the play of National champions and independent professional squads, when they trounced Oshlosh by a core of 46 to 0 before approximately 5,000 fans. It was the same kind of a Packer team that trounced Oshkosh as won the National league title last year. A few members of the 1929 team were missing, but in their places were newcomers who soon earned the esteem of the crowd. Among those new men were a pair of Green Bay boys, former West High stars, who left a good impression. The youths were Kenneth Radick and Arnold Herber. Both saw considerable action and figured in several sensational plays. Then there was Dave Zuidmulder, former East High star, who also came into his own by grabbing a forward pass in the last quarter and racing 60 yards for a touchdown, to say nothing about Bloodgood, Englemann, Fitzgibbons, all halfbacks, and Hanny, Sleight and Zuver, linemen, who played their first football for Green Bay.
PLAY LIKE CHAMPIONS
Of the veteran performers, all played like champions should play it. Mike Michalske, that wonder guard, who always seems to be in the right place, Lavvie Dilweg, dean of all ends, Verne Lewellen, the galloping, kicking halfback, and Johnny Blood were particularly outstanding.You could down the list, mentioning every player on the squad and fans could remember at least one outstanding play in which each individual featured. Capt. E.L. Lambeau used every man on his squad and at no time did the team appear weak. His starting lineup contained practically all the new men and they soon marched down the field for a touchdown, using nothing but straight football and not once relying on passes for gains. Oshkosh was better able to cope with the Bay aerial game than they were with the smashing, hammering off tackle, spinners and around end plays. It was in this department of the game that the Packers showed up to best advantage, although their passing was such that it left no doubt in the minds of fans that with another week to polish the attack, it will be just as useful as it was last year when it led the Green Bay team to a title. Several Oshkosh men showed up to good advantage, crashing in occasionally to smear Green Bay plays and knock down forward passes, and now and then breaking through for short gains. Johnny Roach, former Notre Dame halfback, Ricatti, a halfback, Johnson, a former Appleton fullback, and Red Martin, Ripon flash, were the outstanding players from the Sawdust City team. At no time, however, was Oshkosh beyond the Packer 40-yard line and no real scoring threat was presented.
MOLENDA GOES OVER
Taking the ball after the kickoff, Green Bay began a march in the first quarter that led to a touchdown. Line bucking plays that sent Englemann, Zuidmulder and Lidberg down the field brought the ball to the 30 yard line, Englemann then got off to a great end run behind fine interference, and carried the ball near the 10 yard line. A few more line bucking plays and Bo Molenda crashed over for a touchdown. The try for an extra point by a placekick went wide of the posts. A forward pass, Herber to Englemann, gave the Packers the ball on the enemy 45 yard line at the start of the second quarter. Capt. Lambeau then sent in a full new team and it brought the ball 12 yards nearer the goal on two plays. On the third play, Lewellen dropped back and heaved a pass to Tom Nash, who made a great leaping catch and ran along the sidelines across the goal. The referee ruled that Tom went out of bounds on the eight yard line,however, and brought the ball back to that spot. An off tackle smash with Lewellen carrying the ball picked up three yards, then McCrary smashed through the center of the line for a touchdown. The try for an extra point by a kick was wide and the score at the end of the first half was 12 to 0. Captain Lambeau again shifted his lineup at the start of the third period and Johnny Blood began to run wild, tearing off wide end runs for gains of 20 and 35 yards and taking a pair of forward passes out of the air to put the Packers in scoring positions.
BLOOD GETS AWAY
Blood's first long run brought the ball to the 40 yard line. Herber then passed to Johnny who ran to the 28 yard line. Another pass to Blood brought the ball to the Oshkosh six-yard line. Blood then picked up three more
