Excellent team-work combined with accurate passing and fast skating enabled the University hockey team to swamp the St. Nicholas Hockey Club of New York 5 to 1 on Saturday evening at the Arena. Although displaying individual brilliance, the visitors showed their lack of practice in their passing game. Jabish Holmes '21 at goal exhibited the most finished work shown by an opposing goal-guard this season, but his efforts were insufficient to stop the shots which were rained at him continually from all angles.

A few minutes later, Hill again scored, this time on the rebound after a shot by Walker. Near the end of the period. Austin, racing down the right lane, took a pass from Hammond and snapped a back hand shot home following which Buntin, star center of the St. Nicholas team, scored on a hard shot from center-ice. In the final period. Guild ended the scoring, by skating alone through the entire St. Nicholas sextet and tallying on a sharp shot from the left lane.
