RUGBY TEAM SWEEPS LEAGUE IN 46 TO 3 TRIUMPH OVER QUEENS

Crimson Squad Undefeated For Third Successive Year

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With a crushing 46 to 3 victory over Queens, the Harvard Rugby Club showed in no uncertain terms that it reigned supreme in eastern rugby circles and ended their season for the third straight time with no defeats and the Eastern Rugby Union Championship to boot. Also the ruggers set a new record in view of the fact that the impressive score was the largest in the Club's history.

From the beginning the heavy and experience Cabot forces kept the controlling hand in the afternoon's activities. The Crimson scrum out drove the lighter Queens' forwards mercilessly while the backs had a field day, turning up with one sparking run after the other. Princeton ex-football captain, Tom Mountain, was in real form and scored four tries on long runs from his football position. Kenny Cuthhertson, Phil Markwart, Marsh Holleb, Cy Taylor, "Captain Billy" Waters and Johnny Randolf also joined the scoring bandwagon with a try apiece.

But it was Wally DeWitt who copped the scoring honors with steady toe. The former Stanford center counted eight conversions out of ten attempts to collect a total of 16 points as his final effort for the Rugby Club. Shelley of Queens kept the score from a blank by making good a penalty kick for three points.

The Jayvees did not fare as well as their seniors, for in their third match with the Boston Rugby Club they were beaten 10 to 0 after tied the same team, 3 to 3, twice before.
