Clever Jap Makes Creighton's Only
Score in the Final Quarter.
First and Secondary Defense of St
Louis is in Sensational Class.
After rtelntr Shoved Around Field for
Three Quarters, the Local War
rior Pick Up unit Play
Superior Boll.
By tho persistent use of old stylo foot
ball, Intermingled with' an occasional for
ward pass anil .end runs, St Louis uni
versity walloped Crelehton yesterday aft
ernoon by the score" of 23 to' 3, Cretgh
ton's only scoro came In the' last few min
utes of ploy, when Jap Tamlsea booted
the boll between the crossbars from the
twenty-yard line.
8t, Louis" defense was tho stlffest propo
sition tho blue and white has run up
against, this season. Time after time
thp Orelgnton lads would -broaJc through
the first def enstv-only to ba stopped by
a stonewall secondary defense, Creighton,
on the other hand, shewed riot able to
stop tho terrific smashes of -tho1 St Louis
backs. Rati can and tZchrltz.'hod Uttlo
trouble getting by the first ' and '.second
defense of tho Creighton team and even
then, with several husky opponents honjf
lns about them, would crawl and squirm
ond battle, for a fewvmoro valuable feet.
Orelcrhton Htnrt Well.
Creighton started off with a rush, but
after a fumble the St. Louis backs started
a march down the field. Twice they were
In striking distance of the goal line, but
a fifteen-yard penalty saved Creighton
from one touchdown and the ball going
out of bounds saved another. Snyder was
then pushed through the center for the
first touchdown and Magutre' kicked goal.
The second quarter found the Creighton
team fighting hard and they had the. ball
In St. Louis' territory nearly tho, entlrtr
period, but when within striking distance
of the goal they fell down. In this quar
ter Tamlaea tried his first dr6p kick, It
being from the forty-yard lino. xThe ball
carried well, but tho wind hold It off to
one side.
Walk Over Creischtnn.
In the third quarter the BUllklns liter
ally walked over the Creighton bunch.
Their rushes came hard, and fast. Rati
can, Zochrltz and T. Stadtherr carrying
the ball mot of the time. Ratlcan, espe
cially, making long gains through the line
and around the ends. About tho middle
of the third quarter Zachrltz caught a
punt off the toe of Tamlsea and ran
slxty-flvo yards through a broken , field
for a touchdown. Magutre negotiated the
goal. In tho same quarter, after working
the ball almost the length of tho field,
Ratlcan broke through center fop twenty
yards and made another touchdown. Ma
gulnJ again Jdcked goal.
In the last period Creighton quit Its use-
lfss attack against tho stonewall line of
the MlssJjurlans. Open play was resorted
to and many gains were made for issod
distances.' Once on a fumble the St. Louis
team recovered the ball and marched
down the field, pushing Snyder across for
their last touchdown. Magulre kicked
goal. In this period the prettiest play of
the game was pulled off. A double for
ward pass was worked to perfection by
the locals. Miller heaved the ball to Hop
kins, who passed It clear across the line
of scrimmage to Brennan, who got away
for thirty yards,
Tho St. Louts team 1
then strengthened and Jap Tumlsea was
given his fourth chance at a drop kick,
and booted theNball fairly between the
posts. - J
I-Mght to the Last.
Creighton, despltf tho fact that It 'was
beaten, put up a hard gamo and never
quit at any time. The backs smashed Into
the beefy Missouri lino time and again,
and, althougn being thrown for losses or
held without gains, kept on trying, and
towards the end of the 'gamo were wear
ing the line down. Had the local team
used the open play and forward pass as
'much during the other periods as It did
In the last. thTe Is no doubt but what
the score would have been muah closer, :
for when the blue and white tried the '
pass It meant gains in most Instances.

Trick Play Nearly Succeeds,
South Omaha came very near scoring

a touohdown for his plucky little teaom.
Telling Berlin, left half, and Rapp, right

not want to obey the signals, tho two

tho visitors relaxed thinking they wero

the ball, hurling It to Berlin, who suc
