Soccer Squad Smashes WPI For Fifth Win

Yardlings Drop First Game Of Season to Estonians, 3-1

A butter-fingered goalie and ten other pseudo-athletes from Worcester Polytechnic Institute ganged up to give Coach MacDonald's Varsity soccer team eight goals and its fifth win of the fall season last Saturday on Worcester's rutted playing field. Passing wildly and mostly to Crimson players, the Techmen came closest to scoring a goal when a Harvard fullback accidentally blasted the ball at his own goal.

As the Varsity romped to its 8 to 0 win, the Freshman soccer team absorbed its first defeat of the season from a fast, aggressive Exeter Academy team by the score of 3 to 1 at Exeter.

At Worcester the shooting of the Crimson forwards and half was inaccurate but even so scoring opportunities, like bananas, came in bunches and five men on the forward line and the center halfback ended up with credits for one or more goals apiece.

Estin, Blanco Got Two

Center forward Hans Estin and left inside Carlos Blanco got two scores each while Bill Dawson, Phil Potter, Manny Aguirre, and Dave Ogden netted one.
