Ninety-One, 2; Eighty-Nine, 0.

The second game of lacrosse in the class championship series resulted in favor of the freshmen. by a score of 2 to 0. Eighty-nine could muster only half their team, but decided to play, and came near winning a victory against odds of two to one. The ball was near Eighty-nine's goal most of the time, but the defence was so strong, and the freshman attack played so poorly, that only twice did the ball go through, and then each time from a scrimmage. Several times Griffing made a good run down the field, dodging man after man, but numbers told, and he was finally stopped. Reisner and Naumberg also did good work in keeping their goal clear. Ninety-one had at least a dozen clear shots at goal, but all went wide. The attack crowded into goal badly, instead of drawing off, and seemed confused by their very superiority in numbers. A little cool, strong play would have made the score roll up to eight or ten.

The first goal was scored when the first half was nearly over. The second half was shortened to fifteen minutes, and the freshmen scored another scratch goal after five minutes' play, but were unable to get the ball through again before time was called. Amory played well for Ninety-one, doing good body checking.

The next game is '90 vs. '91, on Thursday, at 4.45. The teams were as follows: Ninety-one-Morton, Amory, Davis, Walcott, Jones, Stead, Everett, King, Bigelow, Washburn, Tudor, Huntress; Eighty-nine-Vorse, Numberg, Reisner, Griffing, Bent, Grew. Referee-Mr. Kilvert.
