The Yale football team defeated Syracuse at New Haven Saturday by a score of 16 to 0 in a hard fought game. In the first half, Yale only scored one touchdown, resulting directly from a fumble by Syracuse and was only able to rush the ball for a total of 41 yards in the 20-minute period. A fumble by Hutchinson on Syracuse's 10 yard line cost Yale a probable touchdown.
In the second half Syracuse's defense weakened and Yale's attack improved. The first kickoff was run back 20 yards from the 15-yard line and a touchdown was soon made. Jones, the substitute quarter-back distinguished himself in this half. Once he ran back a punt 35 yards and a second time with only three minutes left to play scored a touchdown after a 30-yard run on a fake kick. Throughout the game the Yale backs appeared to be too fast for their line, in spite of the fact that the Syracuse attack was especially weak.
The Yale line-up was as follows: l.e., Stuart, H. Jones; l.t., Forbes; l.g., Erwin, Boggs; c., Flanders; r.g., Andrews; r.t., Bigelow, Turner; r.e., Shevlin, H. Jones; q.b., Hutchinson, T. Jones; l.h.b., Veeder, Linn; r.h.b., Morse, Stevenson; f.b., Flinn, Werneken.
