Lacrossemen Plunge To Third Loss, 13-5

Despite Mud and Drizzle, Tufts Attack Outplays Crimson

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Playing in a drizzle on a field that looked more like a mud puddle than a lacrosse field, the lacrosse team skidded to its third straight defeat at the hands of a rugged Tufts outfit, last year's New England champs, by a score of 13 to 5 last Saturday at Medford.

Conditions were hardly conducive to good lacrosse as both teams splashed around the field trying to work out some kind of system, and the field was so slippery that quick breaking plays and spot passes were next to impossible. A good part of the game was spent in wild scrimmage for loose balls.

The Crimson attack was bogged down for the whole game, and the lacrossemen's main offensive weapon was second defenceman George Wood who scored four times on solo dashes through the Tuft's defence. Bob Lange netted the other Crimson goal.

"Spike" Sigler, leading the Jumbo attack, was the game's high scorer with six goals. He scored three times on zone plays and three times on sprints dodging by the Crimson defencemen.
