Although the Princeton Freshmen lost to the Yale yearlings last Saturday by a 21 to 0 score, the Crimson Freshmen will find no easy task ahead of them when they meet the cub Tigers at Princeton this afternoon. The latter will enter the game with the odds decidedly against them, but Coaches Snow, Conlon, and Tierney have been striving this week to emphasize the fact that the Orange and Black will be far more formidable on their home field than they were at New Haven last week.
The Crimson Freshmen have made a far from impressive showing during the early part of the season, since they have won but one of their encounters. Worcester Academy ran away with the first game on the yearling schedule by a 14 to 0 score. The Freshmen then improved their defence and fought Andover to a 0-0 tie, only to be downed by Exeter on the following Saturday 20 to 6. Two weeks ago the yearlings tasted victory for the first time in getting the edge on Dean Academy 18-13. In a hard-fought game with Coach Knox's seconds last week, the Freshmen were victors 7-0.
Tigers Have Made Big Scores
The record of the Princeton first year men is hardly indicative of the outcome of today's contest, since they too tied Andover 0-0, while the other teams on their schedule have not met the Crimson Freshmen. The Princeton yearlings have defeated Lawrenceville 19-7 and Fordham 1926 31-0, and have lost to Mercersburg 3-0 and to the Yale first year men 21-0. The team's greatest weakness appears to be in the line, which lacks plunging power, but the outstanding star is Gates at left tackle, who has proved himself a punter of real merit. Caulkins, who captained the St. Mark's team last year, has also been playing a brilliant game.
