Gettysburg 0, State 00
file game on the afternoon of October thir-
teenth was interesting, not because a close game
was expected, but because it was the first one of
the season for State's team. Our team being
slightly lighter than usual, and containing four
new men, two back of the line, some anxiety had
been felt as to whether or not the team would be
able to sustain the brilliant records made by our
foot-ball players of the past. There can be little
doubt in the minds of those who witnessed the
exhilw ion on Saturday of the position our team
will occupy this season. The quick, snappy play
ing can only result in the downing of all antago
nists. It is only fair to say that the FREE LANCE
thinks the showing on Saturday was clue in no
small measure to the combined influence of train
ing table and regular practice.
The Gettysburg team is composed of good in
dividual players, but they lack concert of action.
Apple and Smith seemed to have the best idea of
of the game. All of State's men knew their
positions and filled them handsomely. Dole car
ried himself exceedingly well in his first game.
The game opened at 2-15. Gettysburg wins
the toss and takes the field, defending the west
goal. The kickoff by Atherton carries State 3o
yds. into Gettysburg's territory, and the latter's
team failing to gain, kick on third down for a gain
of to yds. Atherton, Robison and Suter make
to yds. in three rushes and then a cross-pass be
tween the latter two results in Suter carrying the
ball over the line for a touchdown Atherton
kicks the goal. Gettysburg's kick off is caught
by Atherton and passed to Robison who makes a
good gain. Atherton takes the ball for 3 yds,
and Suter follows with a 25 yd. run around the end.
Atherton's next run of 15 yds. is sandwiched by
short gains of Robison and Suter. Harris fails to
gain, but Atherton makes five and Suter 8 yds.
