The lacrosse twelve played a game with the Bostons on Saturday afternoon on Jarvis, and gained a victory notwithstanding the Canadian players whom the Bostons have secured for this season. The teams were as follows:

Harvard. Position. Bostons.

Williams, L. S. Cover point Ritchie

Goodale, L. S. First defence Donahue

Gardner, '87 Second defence Champney

Weed, '87 Third defence Libby

Hale, '87 Third attack Hayward

Dudley, '87 First home W. A. Ritchie

Robinson Second home F. C. Ross

The ball was faced at 5 o'clock. It fell into the hands of our attack at once. Several wide shots were made for goal and the ball went to our defence field, but all attempts to get it near our posts failed, and our attack soon had it again. After some fumbling on their part Dudley dodged in and threw the first goal. Time, 9 minutes.

The Bostons now tried hard to keep possession of the ball and stopped long throwing, but their rushes were checked near the centre. After ten minutes play our attack for the ball and some pretty passing followed, ending in a straight goal for Dudley. The Bostons amused themselves with aimless long throws during the rest of the half hour; only two of these throws came near our goal, and these were promptly caught and returned by Williams. The first half closed with the score, Harvard, 2; Boston, 0.
