YEARLING ELEVEN BOWS TO EXETER TEAM 20-6
Cheek Makes Only Touchdown for 1926 McPhail Scores Twice and Prendergast Once for Academy--Latter on Brilliant 55-Yard Run
On Saturday afternoon, playing at Exeter, the Freshman football team suffered defeat at the hands of Exeter Academy, the score being 20-6, while the game was marked by hard, fast play. The Freshmen were held scoreless until early in the second period when Cheek, former Exeter halfback, gained the first touchdown by a 3-yard plunge.
The Academy's first score was made when MacPhail crossed the goal-line. The second score came when Prendergast broke through to an open-field run of 55 yards. Exeter's final points came from a long lateral pass, Zarakov to MacPhail. After the Freshman eleven had pounded the Academy line to no avail it resorted to passes, but none were successful.
The individual playing of note was made by Cheek of the Freshmen and by Prendergast and MacPhail of the Academy.
