Two title games feature grid bill in Duluth today
Denfeld favored to beat Cathedral in contest at Public Schools Stadium; Teachers given edge over Jaysees at Athletic Park
Two colorful football attractions, with championships at stake in both games, will be offered to Duluth gridiron devotees today, when the rival Denfeld and Cathedral elevens clash at Public Schools Stadium and the Duluth J. C. and the State Teacher’ college teams meet at Athletic Park.
The Hunters, undefeated in the Head of the Lakes conference and the city league, are determined to maintain their perfect record against the Hilltoppers. The Peds and Jaysee aggregations will battle for the city collegiate title.
Hunters have best record
Both attractions are expected to be packed with thrills throughout, due to the traditional rivalry existing between the schools.
Denfeld rules the favorite to down the lighter, but scrappy gridders from Cathedral. The Hunters have the best offensive and defensive record at the Head of the Lakes, scoring a total of 108 points against conference opponents while only six points have been tallied against them. The Hilltoppers have counted 52 points, while 42 points have been scored against them.
The old rivals will be at full strength for their traditional contest today. Coach Walter Hunting of Denfeld has high hopes for a victory, while Coach John Benda of Cathedral, although not predicting a win, is confident his protégés will make it plenty tough for the West Duluth aggregation.
Power plays and sweeping and runs are expected to be used by both elevens today. The Hunters’ offensive will center around their versatile halfback, Clifford Monsrud, and the rangy John Cameron, quarterback. Cathedral’s offensive gestures will be taken care of by Herman Burnell, hard plunging fullback; Cashin, a fleet-footed halfback, and Dick Forseth, clever end.
Lineup of teams
The Hunters’ lineup will be the same as that against Central last week with Dallavia and Hicks, ends; Chumich and Pellenin, tackles; Blomberg and Lorass, guards; Barr, center; Cameron, quarterback; Monsrud and Van Horn, halfbacks, and King, fullback.
Cathedral’s lineup will consists of Forseth and Thom, ends; Nowak and Louisell, tackles; Pillsbury and Farrell, guards; Borwitz, center; Pokorney, quarterback; Morgan and Cashin, halfbacks, and Burnell, fullback.
