FOOT-BALL.

YALE 1 GOAL, PRINCETON 0.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The second decisive championship game occurred at New York, Saturday, and was won by

Yale by a score of 6 points to O. The weather was nearly perfect, as there was little wind and no sun to bother the players. From the kick-off Yale forced the ball down the field and very soon a pretty run in by Peters brought a touchdown. The ball was brought out and Richards kicked an early goal for Yale, only eight minutes having elapsed since the game began. Princeton now settled down to work, and soon Moffat's kicking sent the ball flying around Yale's territory in a threatening manner. During the confusion Yale really made a safety, but owing to an agreement made before the game it did not come under the definition of a safety in this year's rules. Princeton tried hard to score and kept the ball close on Yale's goal nearly the whole three quarters, but Yale at last forced it away and were lining out for a try-at-goal before the Jersey men's posts when the time was called. The second three-quarters started off with a rush, and Yale tried to measure kicks with Princeton's celebrated half-back. In kick after kick the New Haven men lost ground, although Moffat punted and Yale took a place-kick each time. Yale, finding that she could not with advantage keep up a kicking game, settled down to steady rushing, in which they excelled. Twice Twombly sent the ball rolling along the ground to Richards, who played far outside of Princeton's end rush, and had therefore a clear run to the opposing half-backs. Lamar also made some desperate attempts to gain ground for Princeton, but Yale's tackling soon brought him down. Time was called without further score, and with the ball near Princeton's goal. On the whole, this game ought to give us considerable encouragement in regard to our game with Yale Thanksgiving day, for though we shall not be able to put our strongest eleven in the field, it is certain that they will play a steadier game than they did with Princeton. As our game more nearly corresponds with Yale's a very good contest may be expected. Richards tried several times for goal from the fleld, but was always prevented from scoring by the activity of Princeton's rush. Hull, Peters and Knapp did very good work for the victorious team, while Moffat, Kimball and Lamar gained much of the advantage for the orange and black. About 7000 people witnessed the match, many of whom were widely enthusiastic throughout the entire contest. Our eleven is to be congratulated that the recent considerate action of Yale's eleven has made it possible for us to play next Thursday, and it is hoped every Harvard man who can will go on and support his team on that eventful day. Whatever the issue may be the game cannot fail to be interesting and we are confident that our men will do their best to win. The teams were as follows:

Yale-Forwards, Burton, Knapp, Peters, Tompkins (capt.), Farwell, Hull and Williams; quarter-back, Twombly; half-backs, Kichards and Terry; back, Bacon.

Princeton-Forwards, Finney, Kennedy, Harlan, Harris, Wannamaker, DeCamp; quarter-back, Kimball; half-backs, Moffat (capt.) and Lamar; back, Baker. Referee, Mr. R. M. Appleton, '84.
