Harvard won the last of her championship games in Brooklyn, on Tuesday, by defeating New York University 4 goats to 0. The ball was placed at 4.40 p. m. New York was on the defensive from the start and the score was only kept down by the fine defence work of Matthews and Roberts and the size of the field which did not give our men room for their best team work.
The first goal was scored by Harding in two minutes, after some quick passing. Dudley threw a second in 8 minutes after which the home team struggled harder and crowded into the defence field. By vigorous swiping chiefly, the ball was kept away from the posts for 11 minutes, when Gardner scured goal number three. The New York team fought on most pluckily and succeeded in preventing the fourth goal for 28 minutes. Towle made the last shot for Harvard. Harding played a particularly active game and as on Monday in the New York game secured the ball again and again behind goal. The teams were as follows:
