The ball was faced at 5 o'clock. It fell into the hands of our attack at once. Several wide shots were made for goal and the ball went to our defence field, but all attempts to get it near our posts failed, and our attack soon had it again. After some fumbling on their part Dudley dodged in and threw the first goal. Time, 9 minutes.
The Bostons now tried hard to keep possession of the ball and stopped long throwing, but their rushes were checked near the centre. After ten minutes play our attack for the ball and some pretty passing followed, ending in a straight goal for Dudley. The Bostons amused themselves with aimless long throws during the rest of the half hour; only two of these throws came near our goal, and these were promptly caught and returned by Williams. The first half closed with the score, Harvard, 2; Boston, 0.
