Yale Defeats West Point.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Yale defeated West Point in a well contested game at West Point on Saturday by a score of 18 to 0. West Point has improved considerably both in offense and defense within the past two weeks, and it was with difficulty that Yale scored. The Yale team was weakened by the absence of Olcott, Sheldon and Gould. On the defense Yale was very strong and repeatedly forced West Point to punt, but the offensive work, though brilliant at times, was uneven, and some losses were sustained through slow starting. However, Yale showed great power of determination in gaining on third down, and often made the required distance after being held twice for little or no gain. Holding in the line and offside play were frequent on both sides, and both teams were penalized repeatedly.

Three times in the first half Yale advanced the ball to West Point's 15 yard line, and after losing it once for holding and once on downs finally scored only two minutes before the end of the half. The second half was well contested for a time, but West Point weakened and allowed Yale to score twice, once on an end run by Chadwick, and once on straight line-plunging.
