The second match game of foot-ball in the U. of N. oc
curred on the morning of Dcccmbcy, between the Seniors
and the Freshmen. The day was cloudy and a little raw, so
the players had no fear of overheating themselves by violent
exertions. The costumes exhibited about the same amount
of variety and ugliness so noticeable in the previous game.
In the first half the Freshmen kicked off and the Seniors had
the wind in their favor. The ball was held in the Frcshie
territory nearly the whole of the half and several times crossed
the goal line, though the Seniors succeeded in scoring but
one touchdown, made by Hcarn. In the try for goal Hcarn
carelessly touched the ball to the ground prematurely, and a
charge from the Frcshies prevented Tinglcy lrom scoring a
goal. In a fair near the goal line, Peterson broke through
the Frcshies and came within a few inches of making another
touchdown. In the scrimmage which followed, the Fresh
men kicked the ball well towards their opponent's goal.
Goodell siezed the ball and by a fine run got it into the
Seniors' goal. He had, however, stepped outside the touch
line in dodging an opponent, making the run useless. The
half thus ended with four points for tlie Seniors and none (or
the Freshmen. '
In the second half, in spite of wind favoring the Fresh
men, the ball approached both goals alternately and the game
was more interesting for the spectators. Early in the half a
ball kicked by Sloughton rebounded from a Freshman across
the Senior goal line, and Tingley made a safety to prevent
a touchdown by the other side. Then the ball was advanced
towards the Freshman goal and was finally carried actoss the
line by Farmer. Owing to its being an off side play the
touchdown did not score. Soon Marslaml, falling with the
ball near the Freshman goal, attempted to make a touch
down, on his hands and knees. He was hindered in this
laudhblc attempt by the weight of a half dozen Freshmen, and
the ball was downed within six inches of the line. In the
following scirmmagc, through a misunderstanding ol signals,
Sloughton passed the ball to Marsland instead of to Holmes
and it v. as advanced towards the Seniors' goal. Several
fouls and disputes soon after delayed the game, as did also a
slight difficulty with a rowdyish spectator. A touchdown
was soon after made by Goodell and in the try for goal the
ball struck the goal-post and bounded out. In n general
pile up ncai the Senior goal Worth slyly abstracted the ball
from the heap of struggling men and made a touchdown,
which, however, did not score, on account of a previous foul.
The Seniors at last got the ball slightly into their opponents'
territory, when time was called. The game was hotly con
tested on both sides. The Seniors showed better organiza
tion and their backs did better work. The game was marred
by too much display of main force in attempting to "beef,"
and by too much talking by the players. The spectators
showed entirely too much anxiety at times and crowded the
grounds to the great embarrassment of the players.
