Displaying a power and smoothness not usually attained so early in the season, the Varsity hockey team last night sank the Tech pucksters under a 12-0 score.
The Crimson took the offensive for the whole of the game, which was featured by hard but clean playing with a great deal of forceful checking. Mickey Mouse Hovenanian was up to his usual spirited form, dashing behind the goals after the puck, and continually surprising the Tech defense.
Stubbs took advantage of the heavy lead to do lots of experiments with combinations, during the second period, when he substituted Bill Quinby for Sam Callaway in the first line, Louis Carr for Ben Hallowell in the second, and Ned Cutter for Al Dewey in the third line. No startling results were obtained, however, as some of the smoothness of attack was lost.
Though Captain Fred Moseley failed to show his fine form of last year, George Ford and George Roberts turned in performances that augur well for the Crimson fortunes. Russ Allen, paired with Traff Hicks at defense, did the ablest checking of the evening.
Coach Joe Stubbs, mentally planning changes for the next game, a week from last night, laconically summed up the Harvard point of view on the outcome. Said he: "Generally satisfactory."
