In the second three quarters Harvard braced up and ran around and through their opponent's line, completely demoralizing the Columbia men. Within a few minutes after the kick-off Mason kicked a goal from the field, but, to the surprise of Columbia and Harvard alike, the referee decided it was no goal. Henry then made a touchdown, but no goal was scored. Mason scored the first goal from the field immediately after. Wesselhoeft and Morrison then scored touchdowns, and Mason kicked a second goal from the field, completing the score, Columbia touching back three times. Keith ran very well, crossing the goal line several times, but always deprived of the ball by making a touch-in-goal. Columbia seemed to lose all hope of scoring anything, and devoted all hope of scoring anything, and devoted all her efforts to keeping the score down. This accounts for the large number of safeties scored against her.
In the second half the kicking, running and passing of our men was very fine, Morison, Ayers and Wesselhoeft doing the best rushing. For Columbia Morgan did the best work, but he was seriously injured in the face about the end of the first three-quarters by colliding with one of the Columbia men. The contest was conducted very good-naturedly by both sides, the Columbia team being very fair and gentlemanly, and although some of the Columbia spectators displayed an unfriendly spirit once or twice during the game, still at the end they all joined in a hearty cheer for Harvard. The teams were as follows :
Harvard - Forwards, Morison, Kendall, Cabot (Capt.), Appleton, Hammond, Ayers, Wesselhoeft; quarter back, Mason; half backs, Keith, W. Henry; back, Edmands.
Columbia - Forwards, Octaviano, Emmett, Fishburn, Dowling, Robbins, Wheeler, Eldredge (Capt.); quarter back, Griffin; half backs, Morgan, Brown; back, Leaman.
Umpire for Harvard Goodwin, '84; for Columbia Mr. Trask.
