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.
