And here we go, folks. Duluth is set to kick off to Chicago.
Hardleg Hansen boots the ball in the air.
And Rutherford snags it.
He's to the 10, the 20. Look out, he's at the 30!
Side-stepped Ralph Banning. Look at him go!
He's at the 40, the 50! He's got one guy to beat.
Yes, folks, it's number 7, Dodge Connelly!
Connelly brings down Rutherford at the Bulldogs' 49-yard line.
Chicago fans are on their feet. Now, that's how you start a game!
18, 24, hike!
The ball is handed off to Rutherford at the line of scrimmage,
and he's slammed to the ground by Big Gus Schiller from Penrose High School.
It's a run.
Well, after three very safe plays,
Chicago is finding itself facing a fourth down
with 8 yards to go.
They'll line up for a field goal and hope to walk away with just three points here.
That is some well-played defence by the Bulldogs.
It's all right, fellas. We're just going to wear them down.
Let's take three and put them back on their heels, all right? Let's go.
Hauser is lined up for the kick. The snap is down and the kick is...
It only took six minutes into the first quarter
to get on the board, and Chicago has done it.
They lead, 3 to nil.
Legs Hauser is set to kick off for Chicago.
Sudsey, can I have a shot of your giggle water?
Yeah, but don't drink it all. I'm in need.
Word is the new commissioner told Dodge he had to play the game clean
