HOCKEY TEAM DEFEATED YALE

UNIVERSITY TEAM WON FIRST GAME, CLEARLY OUTCLASSING OPPONENTS.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The hockey series with Yale was very well begun on Saturday night when the University team shut out its opponents and won the game by the score of 4 to 0. The men from New Haven were clearly outclassed in every department and their attacks on the University defence proved futile. Captain Gardner had less than a dozen stops to make during the entire evening, while Schiller had about double that number, and was in constant danger of being scored upon. His work was of a very high order, however, and it was due largely to his individual efforts that the score was limited to four.

The University forwards played better than at any other time this year, and outskated and outmaneuvered their opponents collectively and individually, with the exception of Harmon, who played the most effective game for Yale. Sortwell was the most brilliant performer for Harvard, and his dodging and stick-handling were of the best. He was very ably supported by Hopkins and Phillips, especially the latter, who with Sortwell was responsible for three of the four tallies and whose following back was excellent. Morgan was not quite up to his usual standard on account of recent illness, and was twice put off the ice for loafing offside. It is to be said also to the credit of the University players that these were the only penalties inflicted on Harvard. Goodale and Willetts were a veritable stone-wall on the defence either forcing the Yale forwards to shoot from a distance or forcing them to the boards, so that Gardner always had plenty of time to see the shot before it reached him.

Harmon and Cox, the latter having moved up from cover-point to forward in the second half, were easily the stars on Yale's offence. The former was the fastest man on the ice and made several brilliant dashes down the rink only to find that he was all alone and Goodale and Willetts were too strong for him. The defence relied largely on bodychecking, in which they were occasionally a trifle over-zealous, three penalties being imposed on them for this. Schiller's work at goal has already been com- mented upon, but let it be said in addition that his difficult stops place him among the top-notchers in goal-tending.

The Scoring.

In the first half the puck was generally in Yale territory, but the efforts of the University forwards were unavailing, and the period passed without a score. The second half started with a rush, however, and inside of two minutes Phillips had made the first tally on an excellent pass from Sortwell, who was behind the Yale cage. The same two men were responsible for the next score, which was the result of very good team-work in a dash down the ice. Sortwell gets the credit as he shot the puck in on the pass from Phillips just as they reached the point and cover-point. At this time two Yale men and one Harvard man were off the ice for penalties. The third goal of the evening came within six minutes of the beginning of the period and only 30 seconds after the one preceding it. Sortwell was the man on the spot as he had been all during the game, and made the score from a scrimmage on a back-hand lift.

Yale now became desperate and moved the outer defence into Harvard's half of the rink. As a result of this move Schiller was left all alone and when Goodale made his rush late in the game it was a sure score, for Sortwell was with him and there was no one to stop them. Goodale took the puck from near his own goal, and carried it the entire length of the ice for the final tally of the evening.
