On Home Ground.
Making their last local appearance
for tlie nrcsent season, the Wildcat
eleven forced the famed Crimson Tide,
conquerors of Pennsylvania, to take
count last Sat- the short end of a
urday, in a game which was, despite
the muddy condition of the field, replete with spectacular plays that kept
the result n douht until the final whistle sounded.
The contest was the last local appearance of Colpitts, Fuller, Hollo-wel- l,
Fest, and Captain Pribble in the
Blue and White and each any every
one of the five played a game that
was a fitting close to their gridiron
career on Stoll Field.
The first half of the game was a
punting duel between Fuller of the
Cats and Bartlett of Alabama, with
the honors about even. The oval was
most of the
first two periods, but the Cats were
never within striking distance of the
goal. In the third quarter the Cats
started a march from their own 40
yard marker, and coupling two passes,
Fuller to Sanders and Gregg to Colpitts, each good for about 15 yards,
with line plunges by Sanders the Cats
worked the oval to their own eight
yard mark. Fuller then went off ieft
tarkle for the only score of the contest. Fuller missed the try for goal.
Immediately after the Kentucky
score, Alabama opened up a passing
attack that netted her considerable
yardage and enabled her to threaten
the Blue and White goal line twice,
but was unable to make the required
yardage when it was needed and lost
the ball on downs. The Crimson attempted 22 passes and completed 10
of them for large gains.
The entire Cat team played one of
the best, if not the best game, that
have been witnessed on Stoll Field
for some time and it would prove exceedingly difficult to select an outstanding star for Kentucky. But if
one is picked Curtis Sanders, at full
is undoubtedly the one to be selected.
"Sandy" gained yard after yard thru
the Crimson line and was largely responsible for puttng the Cats in a position to score. He was the main cog
in the defense, making a large number of the tackles, even on the line
of scrimmage, and showing considerable knowledge in the art of grounding enemy passes. Captain Pribble
backed up the line in excellent form
and aided in the pass defense against

tackle was a power on both the defense and offense and stopped practically everything that came his way.
Bartlett was the outstanding star
for the Crimson. His passing was
accurate, and with McCartee on the
receiving end, the Crimson gained
