There were many exciting plays through- out the game with passes, runs, and kicks. The Loboes tried field goals many times but were not true to the aim and failed. Then in the last quarter the Bulldogs put the ball on their thirty-yard line, held the Loboes for four downs, made a field goal, and the game was over.
