26                      THE     AEROPLANE 
East Green Bay 13, Kewaunee 6. 
East Green Bay met and defeated the Kewaunee eleven at Green Bay Sept. 26th.
This waf the first game of the season and much enthusiasm was shown. East
Green 
Bay got the jump on them and Lambeau scored the first touchdown of the season
in 
the second quarter. Binish carried the ball over for the other score of the
game. 
Kewaunee's score came in the last quarter on an intercepted pass which gave
much 
encouragement to the football season of 1914. The score at the close of the
game was 
13 to 6. 
East Green Bay 100, Oconto 0. 
On Oct. 3rd East Green Bay met and defeated Oconto by the overwhelming score
of 100 to 0. Every man in the back field carried the ball over for one or
more touch- 
aowns. Oconto was completely outplayed and outclassed during the entire game.
1 ne 
way Lambeau and Binish and Wittig worked the forward pass practically won
the 
game. Fine driving and blocking tackles were made by Jenski, Flatley and
Loomis. 
East Green Bay 26, Kaukauna 0. 
East Green Bay traveled to Kaukauna Oct. 10th and defeated that aggregation
26 
to 0. The game was played in a slippery and muddy field; this probably kept
the score 
from being more, since forward passes were impossible to work. The only time
Kau- 
kauna had a chance was on the kick-off. They received the ball and began
to plow 
through a line until Binish fell on a fumble. From then on it was all for
Eash High. 
A few minutes later Lambeau was sent over for the first score, he also scored
two more 
of the touchdowns, Binish getting the other one. Altogether it was a victory
for East 
High. We lost our center, Jonte, who had his shoulder dislocated, in the
last quarter. 
Theisen filled his position in fine style. This was our third victory of
the season. 
Appleton 16, East Green Bay 6. 
On Oct. 24th our boys played Appleton where they were defeated.  This game
should have been ours, but the boys feeling too confident of victory, practically
lay 
down the entire game, letting Appleton go over for two touchdowns and a drop
kick. 
Lambeau, Flatley and Theisen played the star game for East High. Lambeau
made one 
touchdown but missed the goal. Final score: Appleton 16, East Green Bay 6.
East Green Bay vs Marinette. 
East Green Bay tackled the heavy Marinette boys on Oct. 31st, defeating them
19 
to 2. The game was a finely played contest. Marinette's only score coming
in a safety 
in the first quarter. The entire back field of the home team played a strong
game and 
the line performed in unequalled style, being strengthened by the addition
of Joe Martin 
at right tackle. Theisen substituted for Moeller and, despite his lack of
weight, he 
played a remarkable game, and Schmitz substituted for Conard in the last
quarter as 
guard. The game was one of the best contests ever played on the home ground.
Touchdowns were made by Binish, Wittig and Van Laanen. Martin kicked one
goal. Neutral officials were secured for this game. Dr. De Both referee,
E. J. 
Clemons umpire, Coffeen and H. Davis timekeepers, Tait and Holland linesmen,
J. 
McGrath head linesman. Time of periods, 12 minutes. 
E. H. S. 64; Manitowoc 0. 
E. H..S. defeated Manitowoc 64-0 Nov. 17th, at Manitowoc. The field was in
a wet 
condition, making forward passes impossible. E. H. S. ran up fifteen points
in the first 
four minutes of play, Lambeau, Wittig, Binish and Van Laanen starred at carrying
the 
ball, while Loomis, Jenski, Flatley and Martin were there on the defense.
