SPRING VALLEY IS LOSER
Final Score la 7 to 0 Considerable
Money Changes Hands Thanks
to Visitors' Confidence.
THE ROCK ISTJAND ARGUS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1912.
In a blaze of glory which even the
falling rain could not quelch, the Rock
Inland Independents yesterday won
fbe championship of the state, the
state, the Spring Valley contenders for
the title being beaten by a score of 7
to 0 after one of the hardest foueht
and best played games ever witnessed
at Island City park. The local team
ended the season with a most remark
able record, having eight victories to
Us credit, no defeats, no ties and not
even a score made against it. The
tram nrored 214 points to zero for the
opponents. It Is a team of which the
ity may well be proud.
IIAVrjTPOBT THE STAR.
Among the many who scintillated,
Ted Davenport, right halfback for the
liork Island team, stood out as the
particular star for it was due to him
that the victory came Islanderwards.
Just at the close of the first quarter,
he snatched a forward pass which was
Intended for a Spring Valley man,
lmlrd the player, and then sprinted
down the field towards goal. Mc
Quade. the Valley's speedy quarter
back, headed o(T the fleeing Islander,
but was dodged JuBt as he was about
to put down the runner. Davenport

to be the only touchdown of the game.

ends, Wagner and Kern attracted the
most a'tenflon both on the offense
and the defense.
Everything before the game pointed
to a Hose contest. Neither team nad
met d.-f-at. both had played tho best
" be found, and there was little
weight advantage, 'n experience and
nge the visitors had the better of It
iuid presumably on this account the
rooter who accompanied the aggrcga
tioii were williuir to stake their last
dollar on the Vullcyites to win. The
h ;iiup; was so fierce that Rock Island
ers thought there was something

be secured baekinir the 1 lift enoiwtonta

the whole team and evidence that all
were in good shape, the betting re

The story of the ganio can be told
briefly. At the start, if looked bad for
tho Independents for the Spring Val
ley claimants to the state title began
at once an exhibition of the stylo of
fc-othall that put them In the running
for tin- big honors. Gains were short
but eonsistant and after receiving the
kickoff. it was not long before the ball
was In Rock Island territory. With
ach plav, however, the defense of the
Independents stiffened and before long
the visitors were running into a stone
wall. That put the team on even foot
ing for Spring Valley's defense at all
times was remarkable. For 10 min-
utes the team battled In the center of;
the field and then came the deciding
play. McQuade dropped back presum
ably to punt but Instead hurled the
ball forward to the loft end. Ted Dav
enport, and another Independent and
K.m of tho Spring Valley all went
after the ball. Kern touched It, bur
ii slipped through his hands and Dav
er.port snatched It out, of the air and
d.u.hed away with it. Aa the big
crowd roared it approval, he crossed
the coal line.
The quarter had ended while he
wa on hln way to goal and to s'art
the noxt one, Rock Island kicked off.
The Islanders now became the ofTen
k'.vo team and though they did not
K"t near goal, they nevertheless had
the Valley team worried. The third
and fourth quarters were on much the
