The University cricket team was badly defeated by Haverford at Haverford on Friday by the score of 306 to 59. The defeat was due to the greatly superior batting and fielding of the Haverford team, and also to Harvard's unfamiliarity with a hard turf wicker, after practice on a softer cocoa-matting wicket. Haverford caught out seven of the University team, and both Bonbright and Hopkins scored centuries, not out. For Harvard, F. C. Taylor did the best bowling, and King scored the most runs. Only two men made double figures.
