David Blake, Spartan.fullback took the •ball on his own 35-yard line and made a spectacular dash to the Frankfort three-yard marker where he was downed when he slipped and fell. On the next play, however, he bucked the line and went over for a counter. The same player then knifed through the line a second time and converted the extra-point, shoving the score to 13-7.

The Wildcats won from Petoskey by a lop-sided 34-0 .score, giving them three vic- , lories compared to two wins :by the Orioles. As far a.s per- 'centage points go, however, the teams are in a two-way tie for the lead, each having an average of 1.000. Traverse City, in the only other Big Seven game of the week, invaded Cadillac and set the Vikings back on their haunches by a 32-6 score. The Trojans, paced by Wares with three touchdowns, had little difficulty with the Cadillac crew and established themselves as a. greater power in the loop then they had been credited. Ludington "meets Cadillac at Oriole field next Friday evening and the game will give the locals a chance to compare their power with Traverse City's before engaging the Trojans in the northern city one week later. Alpena, with only one more game on its schedule, is practically assured of a perfect season inasmuch as its one remaining tlit is with Cheboygan. a comparatively weak member of the loop.' They have their chance to upset the Wildcats on Nov. 4. The Orioles, on the other hand, have three games ahead of them, yet, at least two of which are with strong teams.
