Eskimos Thaw Under Fire of Jackets
FRANKFORD'S GOAL LINE STAND FEATURE OF GAME
Ernie Nevers is a fullback among fullbacks, a star of the first magnitude. But he can be and was stopped. The Frankford Yellow Jackets proved that point last Saturday to the delight of 6000 fans at the Frankford Stadium.
Nevers treated the forward wall of the Northeast eleven as harshly as any pro team he has faced this year. But in the end, the team play of the Jackets dominated. It produced a 10-0 victory -- the eighth league conquest of the campaign and the third in succession.
Nevers bucked his way through the winner's line for considerable yardage. But when a yard meant a touchdown, he was spilled twice from the goal line.
This brilliant stand was made late in the second quarter. Very late, indeed, as the umpire's horn sounding the end of the half came after Nevers' second attempt -- and Duluth still had two more downs to negotiate the scanty distance.
This remarkable stonewall defense, due to its importance and the time in which it was made, was the real highlight of a rather colorless game. Colorless because the usual thrills were missing.
Frankford met a real foe in the Western aggregation. As far as ground gaining was concerned, it held a slight edge on the gayly decorated Eskimos. But its lone touchdown was due to one of the breaks of the game.
"Swede" Youngstrom, Dartmouth star of several years ago, was the hero in its manufacture. The blond guard leaped into the ozone in the first quarter, plucked out an aerial tossed by Nevers band dashed to the goal line, 18 yards away.
The reliable right toe o fJohnny [sic] Budd, his running mate at guard, booted the pigskin over the bars for the seventh point of the game.
Not satisfied with that point, Budd, who is out for scoring honors among the Frankford players, kicked a field goal from the 28-yard line in the third period, bringing his total for the day to four, and for the season to twenty-six. This is one less than the number held by Hap Moran, the pace setter.
