With the possibility of the New England Intercollegiate soccer championship in the offing, a strong Harvard varsity soccer team will clash with Amherst this afternoon at Lord Jeffery's frontier settlement.
Harvard is fresh from their victory over Tufts last Saturday, and there is a good possibility of an undefeated season if Amherst can be withheld tomorrow. The Jeffs defeated a powerful McGill eleven last Saturday by the score of 4 to 1.
Mendel, Witkin, Page, Harnden, and Captain Johansen will again tackle the offensive in the Crimson forward line. Phillips, Jacobson and Edgar will play in the half back positions. Hardenberg and Bradley are slated, to defend the Harvard goal as full backs. "Goalie" Williams will again attempt to keep the ball from slipping through.
The Freshman soccer team will open its season against Exeter on the field behind the Harvard Business School at 2:45 o'clock. Exeter has defeated New Hampton School 10-0 and Dartmouth freshmen 3-1.
