In an auspicious prelude to the football game, the Crimson ruggers out-fougth a stubborn Dartmouth fifteen 11-8 here Saturday morning. An effective scrum and good play by the backs were the keys to the Crimson's victory, its second in four outings.
Dartmouth's Gary Moore put the visitors ahead with a try early in the game. The conversion made it 5-0, but the Crimson's Bill Pfeiffer, supposedly disabled, and Ross Shiel came through with tries to put the Crimson ahead 6-5.
The Indians regained the lead late in the period, but midway in the second half, Crimson wing forward Lee Freeman kicked the ball after a scrimmage and successfully dribbled it all the way down to the Dartmouth end sone where he pounced on it for a beautiful try. Shiel converted, bringing the score to the final 11-8.
