Mineral Wells 26, Junior High 0
Playing two games a week is not very easy on the team. After De-
catur on Friday, Junior High of Fort Worth is the next victim on Sat-
uprday. Bringing a large squad and many rooters they came for a vic-
tory over Mineral Wells. At all times the Fort Worth rooters had more
pep and stood behind their team better than the local rooters.
In the first quarter a pass from Stoker to Ledbetter netted the first
touchdown. After this it was a battle between both teams for the rest
of the quarter. In the second period Thomas scores after gains by Griffin
and Stoker, but Brewster fails to kick goal. Colwell scores in the third
period on a pass from Saxon, the rest of the period being hard fought and
netting few gains. The final period was one of sensation with Leckie
making a beautiful run of 50 yards through a broken field for a touch-
down. This ended the scoring with Mineral Wells 26 and Junior High 0.
Dickinson and Wristen at quarter used good judgment in running
their plays and kept the spirit high in the team. Long gains by Griffin,
Thomas, Stoker, Colwell, Saxon; sensational runs by Leckie and Seamster;
and punting by Brewster were the features of the game. Brewster again
demonstrates his ability as a field captain, but was a little off form in
goal kicking after the game Friday when he kicked so many.
Mineral Wells 20, Central High 7
With three victories chalked to the credit for district championship
the next game and victory was over Central High School of Fort Worth.
The game started off with a promise of being a terrific one and ended in
the same manner.
In the first quarter it was a punting duel with Brewster getting the
edge on the Senior kicker. Senior tried several passes but completed only
In the second quarter, by a series of passes, Senior scores the first
touchdown and kicks goal. In the latter part of the quarter a pass from
Griffin to Wristen nets Mineral Wells their first touchdown and Brewster
kicks goal. Captain Coon goes into the game for first time.
The third period Mineral Wells opens up with a rush, a pass from
Griffin to Webb nets the second count for Mineral Wells with Brewster
In the last period Griffin and Brewster punting for Mineral Wells
kept Senior from getting too dangerous. In the latter part of the game a
Senior High pass is very costly when Leckie intercepts it and runs 70
yards through a broken field for a touchdown. Brewster misses the only
goal of the day.
Central High played the cleanest and best game of the season on Min-
eral Wells' field. Keith, Stangl and Floyd played a stellar game for Senior
High. For Mineral Wells, the kicking and line plunging by Brewster and
Griffin, Saxon, Seamster, and Coon made consistent gains through the
line; Wristen and Dickinson ran the team well from quarter; with the
sensational runs by Leckie were the features.
