Yale 1 Goal, 3 Touchdowns; Harvard O.


The eleven played its last game of the season on Holmes field Saturday, and received its first defeat. Although a cold wind blew down the field promising much inconvenience to spectators, about 2,500 people were grouped around the lines at 2.15 when the teams came on the field. Yale won the toss and chose the wind, Harvard kicking off. The ball was passed back and sent on to Yale's ground by Mason's kick and Morison's rush. Soon, however, Yale's half-back, taking advantage of the wind, sent the ball by a high punt far into Harvard's territory, and Hull receiving the ball from a down carried it over our line by a pretty rush and scored a touchdown, but no goal was kicked. Yale now commenced the contemptible game she resorted to last fall, and in a few minutes nearly every man in her rush line was warned and threatened with disqualification either for foul tackling or for jumping on and fouling the backs. It was an exhibition which will be long remembered at Harvard and by the outsiders as well, who came expecting to see a scientific game of foot-ball. Wesselhoeft sprained his ankle in one of the roughest scrimmages, and Adams, '86, took his place. Yale soon scored a touchdown through Beck, from a fumble by one of our rush; but Richards again failed in the goal. Harvard then rallied, and brilliant rushing by Morison and Appleton carried the ball into the middle of the field, when time was called.

At 3.22 play was again begun, and Harvard attempted to brace, but their tends were lamed and nervous from the repeated fouling of the Yale rush line, and they fumbled the ball several times, giving two touchdowns to Yale through Beck and Farwell, from which one goal was kicked by Richards. The ball was brought out and kicking by Keith and Mason carried the ball up the field. Appleton and Kendall did good tackling, while Cabot and Morison gained considerable ground by their rushing. Adams, the substitute, did his work almost perfectly and made a great success of this his first appearance with the 'Varsity. Yale made many threatening advances, but Coolidge's catching allowed no score, and time was called with the ball well up the field and the game securely in Yale's hands. Richards did the most scientific work for the visitors, while Hull and Beck did very effective rushing. For Harvard, Mason's kicking and Appleton's tackling deserve special mention. Mr. F. A. Houston, '79, umpired for Harvard, and Mr. W. I. Badger for Yale, while Mr. Chas. J. Winton of Princeton was referee. The teams were as follows: Yale - Forwards, Knapp, Hyndman, Thompkins (capt.), Hull, Peters, Beck and Farwell; quarter-back, Twombly; half-backs, Richards and Terry; back, Bacon. Harvard - Forwards, Morison, Kendall, Cabot, Appleton, Hammond, Ayers, Wesselhoeft; quarter-back, Mason; half-backs, Coolidge and Keith; back, Edmands.
