The night before Harvard triumphantly beat Yale 45-27 at Fenway Park, two Harvard intramural teams faced the Yale Bulldogs in the flag football championship, taking place at the historic home of the Crimson: Harvard Stadium. Freshman dorm Weld and upperclassman house Mather came ready to play, each representing Harvard in full stride with Weld wearing their dorm T-shirts and Mather wearing full crimson.
Spencer T. Carter ‘22 leaps in the air as he catches the ball, ultimately scoring a touchdown for Weld. Although Weld had a strong start, they were unable to hold off Yale’s more dominant freshman flag football team, losing 24-12.
Confusion arises as the Yale running back continues to run down field even though his flag has been torn off. Harvard’s Philip A. Geanakoplos ‘21 (bottom left) tracks down the running back as defenders look shocked, throwing their arms in the air as the play continues. Fans and teammates watch on the sidelines as the flag (middle) drops to the ground.

After scoring their final touchdown, teammates Jackson R. Hartje ‘20 and Raymond Hunt ‘21 shake hands as they congratulate each other on their victory against Yale, ultimately leading to a final score of 48-22.
