Army Holds Yale to Tie Game 0 to 0

The Yale football team played a tie game with West Point last, Saturday at West Point, the final score being 0 to 0. Although Yale's offense was stronger than the Army's, the latter's defense was so good that Yale could make no consistent gains. The result was that a punting contest ensued between Coy of Yale and Beavers of West Point, in which Coy averaged slightly better than his opponent.

The Yale team worked the forward pass more advantageously than their opponents, and the defense was very nearly perfect. Coy and T. Jones did the best work for Yale, while the West Point ends, Johnson, Stearns, and Erwin, excelled for the Army.

The line-up of the Yale team follows: l.e., H. Jones; l.t., Paige; l.g., Brides; c., Cooney; r.g., Goebel; r.t., Biglow; r.e., Burch; q.b., T. Jones, Dines; l.h.b., Wylie, Philbin; r.h.b., Bomar, Murphy, Bergen; f.b., Coy.
