In the second half hour, the Harvard offence began to play a more open game, whereby their superior passing and dodging gave them an immense advantage over their opponents. The result was immediately apparent. In five minutes Noyes had scored a second goal for Harvard, and in three minutes more, Nichols had made a third. Occasionally the ball approached the Harvard goal, but the steady defence play of our team prevented the Cambridge men from making more than one throw for goal, an easy rolling ball stopped by Abbot, and each time, the ball was quickly returned to the Cambridge end of the field. Many good shots were made at the Cambridge goal, but thanks to the good work of their goal tender, only once more went the ball between the flags, Blodgett and Noyes making the score, 4 to 0.
The Harvard team were Abbott, '87, goal; Williams, '85, (capt.) point; Goodale, '85, cover point; Gardner, '87, Nichols, L. S., and Sumner, '87, defence field; Hood, '86, centre; Dudley, '87, and Blodgett, '87, attack field; Noyes, '85, Woods, '85, and Twombly, L. S., homes.
