THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1911.
END SEASON WITH
A GLORIOUS GAME
High School Team Wins From
St. Ambrose Collegians in
FINAL COUNT IS 7 TO 2
Captain Kittilsen Makes Touchdown
After Receiving a Punt on
35. Yard Line.
Victory oti St. Ambrose collegians
of Davenpor. yesterday afternoon by
Rock Island h'i,b achool, 7 to 2. gives
the local team a strong claim on the
tii-clty chaniiionshlD. Despite the
fact that St Ambrose gained many
times as much ground in the game as
did Rock Isiund, principally on tor-
ward pass plays, and played perhaps
more In RocU Island's territory, they
mere unable to cross the locals goal
Hne and so weut down to their Brit
defeat this se.-son at the hands of a
high school team. A touchdown by
Kittilsen and a safety through Hynes
mtaplay netted Rock Island's points,
while the coi'i&tans made their points
on a safety in the last few rotnntes
of play. Man for man. Rock Island
showed superiority at most points of j
the frame ar- renslderlnp; the differ
ence in weirrrt of the teama, perform
ed admirably. On the other hand, the
colleriana formations excelled those
of the hitch a. rnool tam, possibly be
cause of the :-t that the locals used
many substrates during the game.
The work of the Rock Island ends
and half backs, as well as that of the
solid line, the feature of the
came on defuse. St. Ambrose's abil
ity to get aT4y with foi ward passes
through tha entire game was spec
tacular. KITTII.KE MAKE TOI'C'IIDOWX.
It was in tre third quarter of the
game that th play that spelled defeat
for St. AmbroLe transpired. Rock Isl
and had ft otto n well into the collegi
ans' territory and the tall aj in pos
sesion of the collegians on the 15
yard line. Mn-.rlssey tried to pent out
of danger. Tie result was disastrous
for his team, for the ball went low
end was grabbed up by Kittilsen who
ran 35 yard3 lor a touchdown. Ken
nedy, St. Ambrose end, had an ad
mirable opportunity to stave off de
feat with a food tackle, but missed
and the local captain planted-the ball
squarely between the posts and back
of the line. Hughes failed at goal.
BOTH SCORE ON SAFETIES.
In the last v-iarter Punt Dv Rock
Island from tue middle of the field
sent the ball bowling over the St. Am
brose line and ilynes, tucking it under
bis arm, was downed back Ot the line
by Hughes, giving Rock Island two
additional poit.U. In the same period,
the Davenporters won two points on
much the sa.tx sort of play, though
had the Rock island man failed to re
cover the ball St. Ambrose would have
scored a tououdown. Wright recov
ered the ball and was downed back
of the line. V ith renewed vigor, St
Ambrose come back Into the game
but time was too short and the game
ended with the ball in their possession
on Rock Islanu s seven yard line.
GAME IS SPECTACIXAR.
Never befcro on a Rock Island field
bad a team gained so much ground on
forward pase t Almost every attempt
of the eolleKns in this department
waa succesafii. In the last quarter
the ball was run into the danger zone
many times by them on this style of
play, only to be lost and punted out
of Immediate danger by Rock Island.
The forward pass gave St. Ambrose
about four li.ree as much gain of
ground as Roc Island secured. When
the collegia.) came within striking
distance, the were unable to make
their gain, the Rock Island line per
forming adm rubly. The result was
that several place kicks were tried by
Morrissey, b:t each one missed the
FAKE FLAY St CrESFl L.
Neither team was able to make any
material gain through the line. Rock
Island's gain 'r. that part was greater
than that of St. Ambrose. The one
really succes.'ij fake of the Islanders
waj on a plate kick formation formed
on the 45 yard line. St. Ambrose was
certain that a ick was to be attempt
ed and ull the motions were gone
through by Higiies who had dropped
back. It was a forward pass, bow
ever, Kittilsen to Sexton, and netted
80 yards for the Islanders.
LOCAL KM STRONG.
The work o) the Rock Island ends.
Kittilsen and Sexton, was remarkably
good. On defense and offense, they

work bad a heavy bearing on the final
result The work of MacManus on
defense aaveJ Rock Island from many
long gains. lie stopped a forward
pass when he was the only man be
tween St. Arfw'ose and the goal.
Tremann and Sexton also played
remarkable games. Brough, in
his first game at quarterback,
played well and was an impor
tant factor throughout the game.
Wright pulled off the best gain of the
Islanders on a 20 yard run through
the line. He played his best game of
the year and was in it to the finish.
The linemen played their usual steady
game. Hugbs kept his opponent

Yesterday's football games bronght
to a close the gridiron season and to
day the moleskins are being tucked
away and the results of the year,
past history, - are being used for a
basis of the championship claims.
And it is at this point that Rock Is
land high steps in with a strong
claim for tri-city championship hon
ors and a fair claim to such state
honors as may be distributed. Dav
enport defeated Moline by three
points, exactly the same margin as
Rock Island defeated that team. Dav
enport was held from scoring a
touchdown while Rock Island scored
two against Moline. True it is, Mo
line scored on Rock Island, but the
gregation during the first few games
of the season, principally because
they were away from home, but to
day there is none better in this part
of the state. That even the closest
rivals of the Islanders will have to
admit in all fairness to the calibre
of tbe team.
CREDIT TO COR5EAL.
To Coach G. B. Corneal may
be given much credit for the splendid
showing. With practically tbe
same players back in school and
most of the best subs. Rock Island
will have an even stronger team than
that of this year and the goal of the
high school the state championship
will be striven for with all the en
ergy and vigor that can be sum
It is true, state championships In
football are all a matter of dope,
but next year the Islanders will go

Rock Island, while yesterday at Dav-enr-crt,
Isaarson cad Stowe, two of
the Plow City's best players, were
home in bed, unable to even crawl
! out to see the game. The result,
unprejudiced tri-city fans are free to
admit, gives Rock Island a shade tbe
best cf the three-cornered argument
and for the first time in years, Rock
Island makes a claim to a little bet
ter than an even break in the tri
city championship. Since Daven
port and Rock Island broke rela
tions in sports, dope has been the
only thing on "which to figure the
championship. St. Ambrose was de
feated by Rock Island yesterday,
thereby being eliminated from all
claims for honors.

Defeated, bat undiscou raged, the
two Y. M. C. -V. basketball teams are
back home V day, with just one con
viction, and that is, that with a little
more training and practice, they can
beat anything they go against. Both
teams had hard games yesterday,
meeting fast opponents, and the play
served, as a valuable experience in
shewing then, their weak points, and
the need of huid work.

great work throughout the game.
