champions after the defeat they gave North Side, our next game was with
the heavy Weatherford College team at Weatherford. Being out of our
class but played as a game away from home and to give the team exper-
ience against older and experienced men.
All of the points were made by Cash, who scored the first touchdown
after a sensational run of 55 yards through a broken field, in the second
quarter. Again in the third quarter Cash kicked a beautiful field goal
for the other three points. Brewster, McMeen, Saxon, Cash, Griffin and
Carter were the stars of the game.
For Weatherford College Knox and Mitchell were the chief ground
gainers, scoring one touchdown each but kicking only one goal.

times the rooters were behind their college team.
The final score ended with Weatherford holding the big end, 13 to 9.
