INFORMALS IN 1-TO-1 TIE
SCORING IN FIRST HALF
Playing the Boston Wanderers for two 15-minute periods of hard-fought hockey, followed by another of five minutes which was featured by even stiffer play, the University informal hockey players were unable to do more than tie their opponents by the score of 1 to 1. Each of the goals was made near the middle of the first half, and from that time on the play was nip and tuck, with neither side out-balancing the other and with comparatively few chances for either seven to increase its score. Both teams showed poor team-work.
During the first half the informals were slightly the faster, and succeeded in keeping the puck near the Wanderers' goal most of the time. The first score came at the end of seven minutes and 40 seconds, when N. S. Walker '20 caged the puck by a back-hand shot at the finish of a rush down the rink with the informal forwards. Less than a minute later Burkhart, the Wanderer's right wing, carried the puck beyond the informal forwards and by a long shot past the defence scored the only goal for his side and the last one of the evening. From then until the close of the first period, the stellar work of A. H. Bright '19 in the forward line and of both N. S. Walker '20 and J. Stubbs '20 in the defence protected the informal goal from danger, and kept the puck in the opposite end of the rink.
Soon after the beginning of the second period, the Wanderers began to evidence more team-work and in this way gained the upper hand for most of it.
The extra five-minute period which was played in an attempt to decide the contest was marked by the fastest playing and stiffest defence of the evening for both sides. W. J. Louderback '20, at goal for the informals, twice prevented scores by brilliant stops, while Mackay, for the Wanderers, was also responsible for staving off defeat for his team. At the end of the period the playing was as even as at the beginning and the game was called.
The summary follows: Score--Informals, 1; Wanderers, 1. Goals--Walker, Burkhart, Referee-- Denesha. Goal umpires--Cummings and McAllister. Timekeeper--Grimes. Time --Two 15 minute periods. Extra period --five minutes.
