PRINCETON 1911 CHAMPIONS

The Princeton football team defeated Yale Saturday afternoon and won the intercollegiate football championship for the year, when White, the end who scored the touchdown and forced the safety against Harvard, scooped up a fumbled pass and ran 55 yards for a touchdown. Howe of Yale managed to trip him on the 5-yard line but his momentum was so great that he slid the remainder of the distance. This occurred late in the first period, and during the rest of the game Howe made several attempts at field-goals; but only one was successful, the score at the finish being Princeton, 6; Yale 3.

It was again a case where following the ball won the game, for in the whole four periods Princeton failed to make a single first down and gained only 40 yards by rushing. Yale showed a fairly well developed offence considering the terrible condition of the field, but its gains in this way were offset by Howe's and Camp's fumbling of kicks. Four times in the last period De Witt's kicks were dropped by the Yale backfield, and fallen on by White, thus giving Princeton, who was slowly being driven back, a new lease of life.

The greatest disappointment in the game from Yale's point of view was the work of Captain Howe. In addition to his costly fumbles, which were only in a small part excusable because of the slippery condition of the ball, his generalship and drop-kicking were poor. He came up to expectations only in open field running. Camp continued his fine offensive work for Yale, with Howe, making most of the gains. In the line the work of the Yale ends was conspicuous. Although the Princeton backfield gave them no chance to recover punts as White did, they stopped all attempts at end running, and were down the field like a flash on every kick.
