STATE DEFEATS U. W. VA.
In a very interesting game the
Varsity defeated the University of
West Virginia team here last Sat
urday. The visitors came with a
good reputation and the uncertain
ty felt by many with regard to the
result drew a large crowd to Bea
The teams lined up shortly after
3 p. m. The West Virginians
kicked off and got down the field
very quickly. State gained but the
ball changed hands and see-sawed
back and forth for some time before
Smith went over for the first touch
down. Forkum missed the goal.
He then kicked off well down the
field to Hineman. The Virginian
made a very neat pass to Capt. Mar
tin and continued across the field.

touchdown. Saunders was his only
obstacle. State’s quarter made a
good attempt to stop the ball at the
center of the field but Martin had
good interference by this time.
Saunder’s tackle, however, retard
ed Virginia’s captain enough to
enable the fleet-footed Smith to
overtake and down him on State’s
25-yard line. This danger past the
Varsity showed how they felt their
loss by the determined way they
handled their opponents. Two
more touchdowns were made in this
half, Smith carrying the ball over,
and Forkum kicked the goals.
In the second half Fawkes was
replaced by McGee. An injured
knee was the cause of this substi
tution. In spite of the stubborn
defence of West Virginia touch
downs were made by Forkum,
Partridge and Moorehead. Two
goals were kicked and the final
score stood 34-0.
The whole team played a helping
game. The man with the ball was
often dragged 5 yards after he was
tackled. West Virginia was plucky
and had plenty of spirit until the
end of the game. Her men were
very frequently laid out. Fumb
ling was more frequent than usual
on our side. Forkum played an
all-round defensive and offensive
game. Smith seemed to be the
best ground-gainer of the day. He
and Wray were a formidable pair of
tackles. White and Dunn opened
the line whenever called upon. The
spirit of the whole team was very
gratifying to State-supporters.
Moscript and Yeckley were on
the side-lines as the result of in
juries received in the Yale game.
