The University football team was given a long scrimmage yesterday afternoon against two elevens from the second squad. Various Yale formations were tried out with the University team on the defensive. The Team A tried its own plays against another second eleven while its first opponent was placed on the defensive against Team B. No attempt was made to score a touchdown and tackling was purposely very light to guard against possible injuries.
Brickley Kicks Goals From Field.
Brickley was in good form and scored three drop-kicks from the 35-yard line for Team A. This was a very commendable feat considering the muddy condition of the field due to a frost the night before. Gardner and Bradley were on the side-lines. Trumbull was back at right guard in place of Driscoll who was sent to Team B. Bradlee took H. Hardwick's place at right halfback as the latter was given a day of rest.

The first team backs, contres, and ends, about twenty men, will leave Boston for New Haven tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
