RIDE TOP VICTORY OVER ESSEX MALLETMEN
The University Polo team was victorious over the Essex County three last Saturday night in the Commonwealth Armory by a score of 3 1-2 to 3. This was the first defeat Essex had received during the season and was a surprise. The game was not as fast as might be expected, as the first half was one-sided. At the end of the fourth chukker the score was 3 to 0 in favor of the Crimson riders. Each member of the team contributed a goal. In the fifth chukker, Almy, Essex's star back, scored twice, and added another for his team in the sixth. Meanwhile Stranahan tallied for Harvard, but a foul called on Shaw decreased the University's score to 3 1-2.
The University riders are now tied with Essex in the finals of the League tournament.
The Polo team is entered in the Intercollegiate and National indoor championships in New York City, and is favored to win the nationals because of their handicap.
UNIVERSITY SUFFERS DEFEAT IN COLUMBIA DUEL
Harvard was given its first collegiate fencing defeat when Columbia beat the University fencing team by a score of 8 to 5 at the Hemenway gymnasium on Saturday afternoon. The visitors won by narrow five to four margin with the foils, but took the epee event with ease winning three out of four matches.
In the foils A.G. Carrillo '26, captain of the Harvard team proved to be the outstanding man, penetrating the defense of his three Columbia opponents with thrusts which soon gave him the victory over them. He brought about the second defeat suffered this season by Juan Jose Fuertes, the Columbia captain, when he beat him by the overwhelming score of five touches to one.
The man who proved to be the pillar of strength on the Columbia team was Henry Herts who, after going down before the accurate attack of Carrillo, pulled himself together sufficiently to beat Howard Finney Jr. '26 and A.R. Allem '26 with the foils and still have energy enough to vanquish R.P. Outerbridge '28 and J.F. Davidson '27 with the duelling swords. His day's total was just half of the winning Columbia score.
