DEACONS TOP SOCCER LEAGUE; DUNSTER WINS TOUGH CROWN

Champion Funsters to Meet Silliman College Saturday

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Kirkland clinched the House League soccer championship this week when they defeated Eliot; while Dunster copped the touch football crown by defeating the Deacon outfit 6-0. Although there are several games yet to be played, the Funsters are undefeated in their seven League touch games, which gives them enough points to walk off with the Laurel wreath, while the Deacons' undefeated booting record definitely places them at the top of the House heap.

The men that live in the farthest outpost of Harvard will meet the championship Yale College, Silliman on Saturday morning in what promises to be a rip-roaring touch battle at 10 o'clock.

At present, the second place slot in the touch League is occupied by Kirkland, who have won five and lost one, while the runner-up in the soccer race is Eliot, with three wins and two losses.

There is no soccer game with Yale scheduled, but the touch struggle has become an annual affair, always played the week-end of the Varsity game, and in the same city where the traditional Varsity clash is taking place.

The standings in the soccer and touch Leagues are decided by a point system, with two marks awarded for a win, and one for a tie. On this basis, the champion Dunster touch team has amassed a total of 14 points, as opposed to ten for their nearest rivals, Kirkland. In the soccer standings, the Deacons have eight tallys, to six for the Elephants.
