In pursuance of the plan formed by the management of the H. S. C. to obtain team practice before the match with Pennsylvania, the team went to the grounds of the Wellington club, on Saturday last, and shot a practice match. Contrary to the expectation of those who know the relative strength of the two teams, the contest proved very close, and the Harvard team showed unexpected skill. The Wellington team ranks among the strongest in the country, and the excellent showing made against it augurs well for the success of Harvard in the coming championship match. The summary follows.
