Ogden Standard-Examiner (Newspaper) - November 4, 1928, Ogden, Utah 14 THE OGDEN STANDAED-SXAMINER SUNDAY MOEMKGy NOVEMBER 4, 1928. enite Is Outs Sensational Star Flareap Armstrong's Charges Uncork, Marvelous Comeback in Four-period Thriller Before Home-coming Crowd; Utah Now Only Undefeated Team. By AL WARDEN UTAH STADIUM, SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. Fighting furiously through four, periods of hectic competition, the scrappy Redskins of Utah university, with their backs to the wall during the greater part of .their supreme test with Colo- rado college, uncorked a sensational, touching, brilliant rally in the final period to nose out the polished Tigers, 27 to 21, before a record-breaking home-coming crowd here, today. It was perhaps the greatest umph ever recorded on the grid Iron for Utah and came as the re- sult of the deter- mined fight of the Crimson In the last stages of a contest that' wai brimful of thrills. This writer nev- er hopes to again witness such a thriller. It was simply jam m s d with enthusiasm, sensational play, brilliant defensive incl offensive work, corded and the cash many times the price of their ad- mission. In short it was a thrill that comes once in a lifetime. Twice during the marvelous matinee the Tigers held a 1-1-polnt lead. This, however, failed to hamper the determined Utes. LEAD AT HAIJP The half closed 14 to 7 for the visitors. In the third period Utah scored again nnd converted only to see the Orange %and Black war- riors take advantage of a Utah mis- play which resulted in the third Utah's hall of fnrno without any kickbacks. He was the Caple of the Utah offensive nnd defensive play in this battlo of the season. His performance- today and his work in the Kfxmo at Colorado Inst week just about makes him n cinch 'or all-conference honors. HCMAX METEOR This chap Clark of Colorado is a human meteor. He vms all-con- ference fullback last season ami demonstrated his merits In every department of piny. He possesses an unusual change of pace in the open field, kicks. passes and does everything well. His work was just about the en- tire- show ns far ns Colorado was Colorado score. The Utes again scored In the fourth period and Couch added the extra point to send the teams into a 21 to- 21 deadlock. Colorado then proceeded to shoot the works in a last desperate chance. With some fivo minutes left to play and with the ball on their own 20-yard line they took the air in an effort to eliminate Utah from the conference race. This desper.tto drive, however, failed, and put Utah In position to count the touchdown that gave tho Crimson tide their margin of victory. Ralph Goodwin, alert. In- tercepted a Colorado pass and ran to tho 15-yard line before ho was run down out of bounds. RACES TO SCORE From this stage two Ute plays were all that were- required for the score. Hodgson made six yards on the first play and Goodwin raced the- remaining nine yards unmolest- ed to the deciding touchdown. He was given some colorful interfer- ence on this historic gallop. Couch's fourth attempt to con- vert via the place-kick route was wide of the uprights. Utah's trjnroph places the Crim- son in the front rank now as the only undefeated team of the con- ference. The Utes have remaining games with Creighton, B. Y. U. and Utah Aggies, but unless some sort of a miracle Is accomplished, they should romp home with their sec- ond conference title. SEXSATlOXATj PTiATS Today's contest not only provid- ed the" grid fans with unusual thrills, but It also introduced two of the greatest footballers ever to grace a'gridlron in the mountains. Pete Couch of Utah and "Dutch" Clark of Colorado supplied the punch that caused the spectators to applaud their fine efforts time and again. Three times Pete- Couch was called upon to plunge through the Tiger forward wall with from two to four yards on a fourth down, and three times Couch made good. Be counted the first three Utah touchdowns and came through also with three fine place kicks. Couch's work was brilliant at all phases of the game. He was all over the field on defense and his kicking was marvelous. His inter- ception of a Colorado pnss in Utah territory in the final period turned the tide In favor strong's athletes. Couch can take hls place In de- concerned. He was just as strong on fense. While Couch and Clark hogged the majority of the honors, the contest trotted out plenty of other stars. Paul Cecil, Utah end, speared a pass' out of a Coloractoan's arms in the third period, which netted 50 yards, and placed the Utes in posi- tion to tie the score. Ralph Goodwin tore off plenty of end runs for fine gains, and in- tercepted a pass in tho final ppriod that resulted in Utah's winning- touchdown. Goodwin carried the ball over to call it a day. Jimmie Hodgson, formor nil- state scholastic back, directed -tin: Utah team with fine generalship. He was sensational time and" again at saining'ground and maneuvered his charges with fine precision late in the game. Hodgson worked the ball' directly in front of the goal posts for a field goal, but tho time- ly jaunt of Goodwin erased the necessity of a goal from the field. Pomeroy, Ute fullback, played a marvelous defensive game and shared honors with his co-workers in the Crimson backfield. On the Utah line Cecil, Jonas, FOL Watkins and Captain Carmen per- formed with remarkable results. CfcASSY BACKS Captain Vandenberg. Lackey and Ingraham were always, threats In tho Tiger backfield. On the line the work of Hyden was outstand- ing. This guard appeared to be in practically every play. Os- borne and Berry at ends were pol- ished in all phases of play. Ingraham scored the' first Colo- rado touchdown after taking a p'ass from Clark. Clark jogged around Utah's left end for the sec- ond Colorado college score. The third Colorado touchdown was made in the third period by Vandenberg. Clark converted all of the tries with neat drop kicks. Twice the passes from center bounded along the ground, but Clark simply picked 'em up, drop- ped the ball and kicked. On these two occasions-the Ute forward wall closed in. fast but Clark managed to count. The determined fight of the Utah eleven goes down as one of the greatest comebacks ever staged in the mountains. Great credit if due the entire Ute team and Coaches Ike Armstrong and Vadal Peterson for; this sample of "never-say-die" spirit. Utah has a great of the truly great aggregations of late years-in the mountains. Their demonstration today goes down in Utah records as the top notcher of all time. Old grads agree that it was the "greatest of all and undergrads never hope to see another contest whh so many thrills. Utah has a rocky road ahead, but Armstrong and his warriors should nose out their remaining rivals. and enter the world's fastest growing industry. ENROLL NOW!
