Time 19 minutes. Wadsworth kicked the goal. Score, 68-0.

Cumnock and Cranston did the best work in the rush line. All the backs played well, rushing more effectively and fumbling less than in any previous game. The playing of the eleven, as a whole, however, was loose and lacking in team play. Whenever a man rushed he had to depend almost wholly on himself. The rest of the men did not back him up or block off as they should. There is a tendency to foul holding that must be gotten over also.
