Manistee high school Chippe- was Friday evening invaded Ludington and after giving a good account of themselves, left fpr home -with a 34-6 defeat chalked up against them 'by the Big Seven championship Orioles. The largest crowd ever to attend any athletic event at Oriole field crowded all stands and lined the fences at each end of the seats. Autos were parked in every available place inside the park and for several 'blocks on all streets in the vicinity. The Manistee team, although on the losing end of the score, took home a victory of its own— a victory, over the jinx that has prevented a .Manistee score by Manistee and matched the ball into scoring territory. Bowden was chosen for the final drive and with a mighty smash clipped the line and slipped into the end zone for a touchdown. A beauty of a pass from Parker to Daron in the end zone was all that -was needed to convert the extra point and made the score 28-0. ' Manistee Scores Ezdebski kicked off to Manistee following the score after which Bob Peterson, most brilliant Chippewa player, knifed through the Oriole line for 16 yards and the first Manistee first down of the game. The same player tried a pass which fell incomplete. A delayed Manistee pass was thrown for a loss when Oriole players poured through the line before the play could be completed. Manistee then pulled off it neatest play of the evening, Peterson rifling a pass to Wik- owski who made a perfect snare and rinding himself without an from crossing an Oriole goal I ? ri ° le J n 61ght > s , t , reaked * or the line since 1933. .The ChippewasI Ludm ^ to " .goal line 46 yards . . . - V"*^^V* TT MrM rMob-i^rr + V\ A r\V\l *1 TVJTrt « i c-f On managed to break away for one touchdown during the game. :.- Fans Thrilled Oriole fans were thrilled by the classy exhibition put on by the Ludlngton team. Teamwork to the -• most ^precise degree featured the attack of the Orioles as they swept over the visitors from the north for five .touchdowns; and four .points after. At the same /time; the (Manistee crew was a> much improved outfit .from any Chippewa -outfit that has been seen in recent years. Numerous complicated plays were displayed, indications of training by the new Manistee coach, Danny Smick, ninenletter athlete from University of Michigan. The Orioles squashed many of the Manistee plays 'behind the line of scrimmage because of a weak wall. The 'backfield, however, worked •smoothly for the most part, promising to- grow stronger 'before the Orioles play in Manistee in November.' - : • •<•• • Two Touchdowns Snow scored two of Ludihg- ton's touchdowns while Ezdebski, • 'Olson and Bowden each crdssed the 'final stripe with the tball. B. Peterson furnished Manistee with its only touchdown. Ludington - completely dominated the game during the first half, making 21 points toy intermission. In the third and fourth quarter, however, Manistee changed its course and with the use of numerous passes and trick plays, converted itself into a genuine threat to the Oriole well-being. The Chippewas made its one touchdown in the third quarter while the Orioles crossed the goal once in the third and once in the final canto. Opening the first quarter, Ludington, receiving the ball on the teickoff, .started a drive on the Ludington 39 yard line which netted an eight yard gain by S. Horowski, a four yard gain by Bowden, a 23 yard end run by Parker, Snow through center for 16 yards and again through center for four yards to put the >ball in scoring territory. Horowski was stormed for no gain, Bowden picked up one yard through center and finally on the 'fourth down, Snow slanted off right tackle to cross the pay Stripe for the first touchdown of the game, only three minutes of play having elapsed. Powden plunged through the • line for the extra-point, making the count 7-<}. •• During the remainder of the away, making the only Manistee score of the game. The extra point was missed when a Manistee pass was incomplete. Ludington closed scoring in the final period when Snow, taking the ball after an Oriole march, hit the line in a cross buck and wound up on the Manistee side of the pay stripe, running the count to 34-6 where it remained when Bowden attempted to go through the line but was hurled back by the Chippewas.
