Local Eleven Defeats Get

Speedy Contest at Frank

By EDWARD R. BUSHNELL
FRANKLIN, FIULD, PHILADEL
PHIA, S"pt. a;. Deforc a crowd of
approxlmntey S000 grldhon enthusiasts the
t'nlvcrslty of Pennsylvania eleven opened
the football season here by scoring a 11
to 0 victory over Gettysburg. The vlslt
orj -were not disgraced by any means, for
they made the Quakers fight desperately
for every point they scored.
Tho Quakers made their first touch
down in tho first period. Although al
ways dangerous, they were held score
less In tho second and third periods, but
managed to tally a second touchdown a
few minutes before tho close of the fourth
The first touchdown was made Just be
fore the Initial period ended. The Quak
ers fairly earned their first touchdown,
although theie was enough fumbling to
make tho coaches' hair turn Kray. After
Kottlng tho ball on tholr,nwJn, 35-yard line,
the Quakers In splt6of"fumbles, which
they iccovercd, hustled tho ball down to
Gettysburg's 20-yard line. Here both
sides fumbled twice, but the Quakers
finally came into possession of 'tho bull
again on Gettysburg's 20-yard line, from
which point three plays, the first two by
JIofTitt and the Inst by Hughes on tho
double pjs3, scored a touchdown.
During the second and three periods
Pennsylvania continued to outplay their
lighter opponents, but fumbles prevented
them from scoring. Once they had to
try for a goal from field to prevent
losing tho ball on downs and on other
occasions they lost on downs Inside Get
tysburg's 15-yard lino. But while Penn
sylvania fumbled away opportunities to
score tho Gettysburg offenso wan not
strong enough to get even a first down.
At no tlmo wore they dangerous.
Moffett and Merrill were principally re
sponsible for Penn's second touchdown,
which camo less than D minutes before
tho end of tho gnme. The Quakers'
march for the final touchdown was over
05 yards of turf In sixteen plays. This
march was featured by two scnnatlonnl
rutiB by Men ill of 23 yards and U yards,
It was Merrill who eventually made the
Penn's uttack wns spasmodic. Moffett,
while tho best ground-gainer, was like
wise the worst tumbler. Gettysburg
