GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(MERRILL) - In what was little more than a good
workout, the Green Bay Packers opened their practice
season here Saturday night by defeating the Merrill
Fromm Foxes, 34 to 0, before 1,500 spectators, most
of them hostile to the visitors. Soon after Ernie Smith's
kickoff, Merrill was forced to punt. On the second play
thereafter Herber passed over center to Monnett, who
galloped for a touchdown to complete a 61-yard gain.
Monnett added the extra point by placement.
HINKLE GOES OVER
A running attack by Schneidman, Sauer, Hinkle and
Laws brought the second touchdown in the second
period, Hinkle finally carrying the ball to the 3-yard line,
from which point Sauer hit right tackle for the score.
Hinkle missed the try for the extra point. Late in the half
Joe Laws swung around left end behind Goldenberg's
perfect blocking and carried the ball 34 yards to the
Merrill 11-yard line. Sauer moved it up on two plays and
Goldenberg hit the left side of the line for a touchdown.
Schwammel kicked the extra point.
PASSES TO BRUDER
In the third period a pass form Herber to Bruder and
running plays by Johnston and Herber brought the ball
to the Merrill 14-yard line. A pass from Herber to Vairo
put it on the 3-yard line. Johnston gained a yard, and
Schneidman hit center for the touchdown. O'Connor
kicked the extra point. The last Packer touchdown
came late in the third period after Svendsen intercepted
a Merrill pass. Bruder and Johnston reeled off first
downs, and then Herber passed nine yards to Johnston
for the score. O'Connor again converted.
