(From the Chillicothe Constitution) "The football eleven of
the Brookfield High School found the Chillicothe aggregation
no trouble Saturday. The husky Linn warriors ran the score up
so high that the accounters lost track. Semi-official
"returns" place it at 45 to 0.
The visitors out-pointed the locals at every stage. They
showed far more experience and better generalship than did the
victims of their onslaughts. Considering the short time since
organization the Chillicotheans, however, put up a good game.
They were simply outclassed.
The Brookfield team works harmoniously while, on the
other hand, some of the new members of the defeated eleven

another player were absent and the break in the lineup was
The locals fought stubbornly and only gave ground at
the fierce rushes of Brookfield. A fair sized crowd watched
the contest. Before another game the Chillicothe eleven will
be benefited by a great deal of practicing."

(From the Chillicothe Constitution) "The Gallatin eleven won
from the Chillicothe High School team at Gallatin Saturday
afternoon by the score, 16 to 0. The visitors put up a
stubborn fight and made a considerably better showing than
they did here against Brookfield a week ago Saturday."

(From the Chillicothe Constitution): The Brookfield High
School eleven defeated a mixed team composed of Normal and
High school students at South Park Saturday afternoon by the
score, 23-0. The game was fairly exciting and the local boys,
who averaged more weight than the visitors, fought their level
Brookfield made one or two rather sensational runs. The
team as a whole, showed more consistent headwork than did
Chillicothe. The winners, too, had a great advantage in being
far more active than the opposing lineup.
A fair crowd watched the game and did all in its power
to encourage the losing Chillicotheans."
