Massillon’s Fake Forward
Helped With the Outcome
Kester, Heyman and Stearns
are Credited With Making the Entire Score
Lisbon’s Playing Was Good
and the Team Showed Organization

In a hard fought game Massillon high won from Lisbon high Saturday afternoon by the score of 27 to 0, the total score including four touchdowns, a drop kick and four goals. It was one of the hardest games the varsity has played this year and was incidentally the first game played with Lisbon.

Heyman again led off in the game, not only with the highest total score of 17 points, but also carried off every play around his side of the line. Heyman also kicked a drop over the bar during the second period from the thirty yard line.

Kester followed up his interference which was generally conceded Saturday to be the best organized that has been played by the high school. During the last few minutes of the fourth period Kester crossed the line for a touchdown.

Stearns, right end, scored the first touchdown of the game during the first three minutes of play when he broke up a Lisbon pass and carried the ball from the center of the field for a touchdown.

Massillon received the ball on the kickoff, Kester advancing it to the thirty yard line. McComb, Lisbon end, stopped Miller after the ball had been in play but a few seconds, when the latter threatened a touchdown from the center of the field. Rudy here made heavy gains through the line. Stearn broke up a forward and turned it into a touchdown. Heyman kicked goal.

Lisbom received the ball on the kick off, the ball being put in play on the thirty yard line. Arther, at this time received the longest forward made during the game and carried the ball from the center of the field to the thirty yard line. Heyman attempted a drop but was blocked and later recovered by Massillon and on the next down Kester carried it through the Libson line for eight yards and a touchdown. The period closed.

The ball was put in play at the opposite end of the field on the twenty-five yard line by Massillon. Heyman after considerable hesitation by the team, dropped the ball over from the thirty yard line.

Massillon kicked to Lisbon but quickly recovered the ball when the visitors failed to make yards. Heyman and Kester again worked the same old reliable fake forward, the former making a touchdown. Heyman kicked goal.

Lisbon received the ball, Miller breaking up the interference and downing the runner before any harm was done to Massillon’s yards. Arther again carried a long pass while Kester, Rudy and Miller worked heavy line bucks, decreasing the distance to the goal with every down. Heyman followed up a formidable interference and touchdown, later kicking goal. The period closed with no additional score.

The third period opened and closed with no unusual plays with the exception of Adam’s attempt to make a place kick for Lisbon. The fourth period passed off quietly until Kester made a touchdown during the last few minutes of play.
