In a battle that was even rough for rugby, the Harvard Club added another win to its three year record of straight victories by neatly clipping the wings of Long Island University, 16 to 0. The Islanders were one of the most important obstacles in the way of another Eastern Rugby Union championship.
Although the play was nip and tuck in the first half, the Crimson fifteen capitalized on its scoring opportunities and Bobbie Green and Captain "Cowboy Bill" Waters scored a try apiece. In the second half the L.I.U. scrum returned with a threatening ferociousness and aggressiveness, but Sid Cabot's ruggers stood pat and returned with a scoring drive that netted two more tries made by Dick Simpson and Tom Mountain after a sparkling 50 yard run. Wally DeWitt added four points to the afternoon's total with two conversions.
The Junior Varsity met the University of Vermont team in Burlington and came out on the short end of a 6 to 0 score. The Jayvees were under-manned, still lacking in weight and experience.
