PAGE EIGHT
With injuries crippling their at
tack and the breaks of the game go
ing against them, Bluffton High
gridders dropped from the undefeat
ed ranks as they lost their closing
game of the season to Bellefontaine
by a score of 20 to 7 on a muddy
Logan county field last Friday night.
It was the first setback of the
season for the scrappy Pirate outfit,
and the defeat was doubly disheart
ening for the gridders since it drop
ped them out of a first-place tie with
Van Wert for leadership in the
Western Buckeye grid league.
Bellefontaine completely dominat
ed first-half play in the contest, and
when the Pirates took the field to
stage a determined last-half come
back they were trailing 13 to 0.
The Chieftains’ charged thru for
their first touchdown when they
blocked a Bluffton punt and recov
ered on the Pirate 18-yard line on
the fourth play of the contest. With
Detrick and Blackw-ood carrying the
ball, Bellefontaine had a score in
three ‘plays and Mason kicked the
extra point.
Bellefontaine’s second touchdown
came with only one minute remain-

ing in the second quarter when a
long pass to Brown was good, and
the home team held a 13 to 0 lead
at halftime.
Bluffton failed to make a first
down in the two opening quarters
and the team gained only 30 yards
as Bellefontaine’s beefy linesmen
broke up play after play.
It was a different story in the sec
ond half, as Bluffton played the style
of ball that local followers have be
come accustomed to see this season.
In six plays after they got the
bail for the first time, the Pirates
had a touchdown. It was a 54-yard
march that started with Schmidt tak
ing a pass from injured Fred Herr
mann for nine yards And Howe
smashing over center for three and
Bluffton’s initial first down of the
game.
Schmidt then broke loose on an off
tackle smash for a 30-yard gain
picked up eight more over right
tackle and cracked thru center for
two more. On the next play he
caught a 12-yard pass from Herr
mann for the touchdown.
Bob Cooney’s kick from placement
was good for the extra point and
the Pirates were within striking dis
tance of the Bellefontaine crew.
Continuing to play sparkling ball,
Bluffton appeared on the verge of
another touchdown that would have
tied the score, and perhaps won the
game, when a disastrous break gave
Bellefontaine their third touchdown.
A drive that carried the Pirates
deep into the Chieftains’ territory
started as Cooney made a spectacu
lar one-hand catch of Herrmann’s
pass for a 24-yard gain. It was fol
lowed with a pass good for 17 yards
that gave the Dillermen a first down
on the Bellefontaine 18 yard line.
Bad luck then entered into the
picture, however, as Bellefontaine’s
Brown intercepted a Herrmann pass
on his own 15 and raced 85 yards to
score.
In total yardage gain there was
little difference between the two
teams. Bluffton had 179 and Belle
fontaine picked up 181. First downs
favored Bellefontaine, 12 to 8.

A Bluffton High school team rated
as an outfit of uncertain strength
before gridiron play was opened last
September came through a highly
successful season with one of the
best showings made by the Pirates
in more than a decade, with only
one setback marring what otherwise
would have been a perfect record.
Losing only one of eight games,
the Dillermen proved their worth
in a rigorous schedule that took
them into action against some of the
best Class A and Class teams in
this section.
Four opponents were beaten by
shutout scores, and only one outfit
was able to score more than one
touchdown against a rugged Bluff
ton defense.
In contrast the Pirates scored in
every game, and their offensive pow
er is indicated in their impressive
season total of 164 points. Eight
opponents tallied only 39 points
against the Dillermen, and Bellefon
taine with the 20 points that spoiled
a perfect season, was the only out
fit that made more than a single
touchdown.
Victories were racked up over
Columbus Grove, Ada, Pandora, Ce
lina, St. Marys and Wapakoneta.
Van Wert, undefeated, held the Pi
rates to a 7 to 7 tie, and Bellefon
taine came thru with a victory.
The only dark spot so far as the
season is concerned lies in the fact
that 11 of Coach Diller’s regulars
will be lost by graduation, and prac
tically an entirely new team must
be built for next year.
