In the second quarter, Charlie Cabot intercepted a Berkeley pass. Fred Rhinelander ran 60 yards to the Mitres' 20 and, Charlie Cabot broke through on a quarterback sneak for the touchdown. Dick Heintz booted the point again.
Near the end of the quarter, the Elephants drove down the field; John MacNamara took the ball off guard to score again. Heintz converted making it 21 to 0.
The Elephants's final score came in the last quarter, following a 70 yard drive. John MacNamara went into the end zone on a quarterback sneak. The Mitres made a last minute attempt when Sandy Sulger ran off sizable gains with seconds to play but could not get beyond the Elephant 30.
