MORE FIRST DOWNS
Cedar Rapid actually made more first downs than the Packers, 5 to 4, due to the fact that the Bays were going for touchdowns on most of their plays. Lack of a good punts penalized the Iowans severely, as on a number of occasions they muffed chances to drive the Packers backward temporarily because their kicking went sour. Hinkle's bruising run on the first play hauled the freight to the Crusher 23-yard line, and the Packers settled down to work. Beauregard was checked in a thrust at left tackle but Herber tossed a forward pass over center to Scherer, who picked off the ball for a 13-yard gain and a first down on the 10-yard stripe. Beauregard drove into left tackle for three yards, and then Hinkle swept off right tackle, elbowed past the secondary and crossed the goal line standing up. Herber held the ball as Hinkle placekicked the extra point, giving Green Bay a 7 to 0 lead.
SEIBOLD GOES OVER
A Cedar Rapids fumble deep in that team's territory a few plays later gave the Packers their second touchdown. Scherer batted the ball into free country, Frank Butler fell on it and lateraled to Champ Seibold who ran across from the 20-yard line. Herber held the ball as Hinkle again placekicked the point, sending the Packers ahead by 14 to 0. The next Cedar Rapids punt was blocked, and Hinkle recovered the ball, running to the 2-yard line before he was brought down. On the following play he rammed center for his second touchdown. Herber held the ball as Tiny Engebretsen booted the point, and the Packers were out in front by 21 to 0. A forward pass, which Dick Anderson intercepted and returned three yards to the Crusher 25, set the stage for the next Green Bay score. After Beauregard failed to receive adequate blocking on a wide sweep of left end, Cedar Rapids drew a 5-yard penalty, and then Dick Weisgerber shot off right tackle on a criss-cross from Laws, traveling 15 yards to the goal.
BOOTS EXTRA POINT
Laws held the ball as Weisgerber booted the point, setting the score at 28 to 0. Early in the second period Bob Monnett hooked off a forward pass by Kriz and got loose on a spectacular 78-yard touchdown jaunt down the left side of the field. Monnett held the ball for the extra point, but Joe Laws' attempt was blocked, and the score was 34 to 0. The Packers soon were blasting away again at the Cedar Rapids goal. After Weisgerber's 40-yard run off tackle was called back, Laws got loose around left end for 34 yards and a first down on the Crusher 23. Laws picked up two more yards at left end, and then the Bays executed a flawless end-around play, with Scherer pounding around the right wing for 21 yards and a touchdown, weaving through a broken Cedar Rapids secondary.
EDDIE KICKS GOAL
Laws held the ball as Jankowski kicked the extra point which made the score 41 to 0. There it remained at the half. On the first play after a Cedar Rapids punt in the third period Herber passed to Laws, who lateraled to Ookie Miller, moving the ball across midfield, and on the next play Laws passed over center to Becker, who grabbed the ball and continued to the goal line to complete a gain of 50 yards. Laws held the ball, but Herber missed the extra point, and the score mounted to 47 to 0. Green Bay kicked off, and Swede Johnston intercepted a pass, returning 10 yards to the Cedar Rapids 32. Herber flipped to Becker for another touchdown, but the play was called back and the Packers given the ball on the opposing 29.
GAINS 14 YARDS
A Herber to Laws aerial gained eight yards, and Weisgerber, on a reverse to the left, picked up 14 yards for a first down under the Rapids' goal posts. Johnston smashed off right tackle for the touchdown, and with Herber holding the ball Laws kicked the extra point. It was 54 to 0. The next Packer score was the most spectacular of the day. With the ball on the Crusher 47-yard stripe, Herber dropped back past midfield and turned loose a might forward pass, which whistled in a wide arc 61 yards through the air and was speared by Moose Mulleneaux of the Packers near the Cedar Rapids goal line.
PICKS OFF PASS
Two members of the defending team were on Mulleneaux's back, almost touching him, but he reached out to pick off the ball and then broke away from his pals to amble over the last stripe. Herber held the ball for Jankowski to kick the extra point, and the count was 61 to 0, as the third period ended. A fourth down Cedar Rapids' pass with four yards to go gave the Packers the ball on the Crushers 23 and in two plays they had another touchdown. On the first Laws passed to Scherer over center for 12 yards, and on the second Jankowski pounded over right tackle for the score. Laws held the ball, Mulleneaux booted the extra point, and the score was 68 to 0.
STRATEGY DOESN'T WORK
Green Bay kicked off to Hogendorn, who lateraled to Kriz, and the latter punted out of the dead run. The ball dropped into Laws' hands in Packer territory, and the shifty halfback roared down the sidelines 67 yards for another touchdown. Laws held the ball for Johnston to kick the extra point. The score was 75 to 0, and the Packers toyed with their opposition for the remainder of the game.
