Dayton Triangles 7
Season Game: October 12, 1924
The game started with Partlow kicking to Jack Flavin, who returned the kick for 30 yards. The only positive play of this possession was a pass from Eddie Kaw to Benny Boynton for 10 yards. Dayton then held the Bisons, and Flavin punted to Ray Keuhl. Neither team could sustain any offense the rest of the quarter, resolving in a punting duel to finish the first.
Jones was replaced by Mike Traynor at the start of the second quarter. Redman punted to Boynton, but Benny fumbled at
mid-field with Dayton recovering. Al Mahrt then ran for 18 yards, and Redman connected
with Kuehl on a forward pass to move the Triangles to the Buffalo 20 yard line. Flavin
stopped the drive by intercepting a Dayton forward pass, but he fumbled and Boynton fell
on the ball. Flavin then punted to Kuehl, who fumbled at midfield with Kaw falling on the
ball. A 5 yard forward pass from Kaw to Boynton put Buffalo in position for a field goal,
but Kaws try went low. Later, Morrissey tried a field goal from the 40 yard line,
but he also missed. Near the end of the half, Moose McCormick fell on a blocked punt on
the Triangle 20 yard line. This set up Morrissey for another field goal attempt; this time
missing from 25 yards.
Neither team could score in the third quarter, but, Dayton was able to score in the fourth. Soon after the start of the final period, Dayton blocked Boyntons punt. The ball rolled to Buffalos 35 yard line where Bacon fell on it. Al Mahrt to Bacon forward pass gave the Triangles 10 yards, and a Mahrt to Fenner pass put Dayton on the Bison 2 yard line. Partlow ran it in for the touchdown, with Hathoway kicking the extra point.
