The Freshman football team defeated Groton at Groton on Saturday, by the score of 8 to 2. The game was played in a pouring rain which increased the difficulty of handling the ball. Neither side attempted to use the forward pass.
Groton twice held the Freshmen for downs inside the 5-yard line. The touchdown by the Freshmen was made in the third period. Grant carried the ball over the line, and Gardiner kicked the goal. Groton scored a safety in the first period, and the Freshmen made one in the last. Hardwick's punting and the work of Reynolds and Grant were the features of the game.
