Nestl, sensational riglit ball back
tor the Valley eleven, proved the star
for the visitors and at on" time gave
local fans and members of the Otta-e
wa team n horrible scare when he!
raced through the Ottawa defense to
sixty yards. He had carried the ball
within eight yards of the Ottawa goal,
and there his team lost, the pigskin,
being unable to make that distance
through the local line for a touch, I
To Philip Bcfcaeb goes the honor of;
winning the game for the Ottawa
team. Schocb intercepted a b.rwatd;
pass, meant for .Right Knd Mills, if
the Valley team, and dashed lhroug.1 ,
a clear field for the first and rnly
touchdown or the game. A fifteen
yard run by 1 him netted the svoio
and the win for the locals. Screen j
went in shortly after the game start
ed and proved a valuable man for the
Smith machine. At various intervals
be wa good for nice gains of from
five to twenty-five yards.
Captain Carey, also played a very,
clever game, but as the result of a j
squabble with Nesti, Valley right half, j
he was ordered to leave the game dur-
ing tho last ten minutes of play, at
was His opponent.
Besides those two men, every mem
ber of the team played an exception
ally good game. Nevertheless they
showed many weak points which, it
not corrected by the school mentor
Immediately, will probably lose future
games for them. For Instance,
Smith's men are In need of hard and
gruelling tackle practice. Saturday's
game evidenced the fact that they
tackle too high. As a result of this
fault, the Spring Valley backfield men
made good gains, after being touched
or almost tackled by the locals.
Smith's men would have made a bet
ter showing had they made their
tackles a little lower and not so
lunch ground would have been cov
ered by the visiting eleven. It was
an easy matter for the Valley backs
to squirm out of the hold of the lo
cal tackier and line man and make
an additional five or ten ya.rds.
Then again, a stronger defense
against forward passing by the oppos
ing team should be developed. Smith's
ends especially, despite the fact that
they did muss up one or two of the
aerial moves, showed poor afbility at
that point, and allowed several nice
ones to get away from them.
Previous to the game a large string
of Ottawa rooters carrying high
school banners, ribbons, etc., marched
through the loop district of the city.
The Third Field artillery military
band, made up of some of the officers
and soldiers who are making the long
bike from Camp Grant, 111., to Camp
Knox, Ky . were present at the field
and played various musical numbers.
Following is a report of the entire
