STATE COLLEGE, PA., NOV. 17, 1904,
State 11, Dickinson 0,
For a good account of the game
we cannot do better than quote from
the Williamsport "Grit” of Sunday
last, which comments as follows: —
State won, defeating Dickinson in
decisive fashion. State developing
unexpected strength, gathered 11
points, while the Red and White
eleven failed to score. This, in
brief, is the story of Saturday's
great football contest on Seminary
field. Four thousand five hundred
persons saw it. Four hundred of
that number came frqm .Carlisle and
environs, and 800 more were riotous
ly happy backers of the Blue and
The teams came together heralded
as almost evenly matched, with the
odds slightly favoring Dickinson.
And so they appeared during the
skirmish, which lasted during the
entire first half. It was nip and
tuck, and the frenzied rooters were
not so sure but last season’s game,
which went without result until the
last two minutes of play, was to be
repeated. State was without the
services of its big captain and full
back, Forkum, and after 10 minutes
of play Moscrip, the best tackle on
the team, was led from the field
with a broken collar bone. But to
the surprise of all the Blue and
White kept Dickinson on the defen
sive most of the time and at one'
time worked the ball to the Red and
White eleven’s 6 yard line, where a
try for a field goal by Mcllveen re
sulted in a failure. Mcllveen made
another try for a goal in this half
that was remarkable even though it
was unsuccessful. The big halfback
stood on the 50 yard line in his at
tempt and to the amazement of all the
ball missed going over the goal bar
by less than 10 feet. Late in the
first half State gave a glimpse of
superior strength in a couple of re
verses it administered to the Dickin
son eleven, but which it had no time
to follow up before the whistle
The second half was the game.
In the intermission State’s coaches
held a council of war and when the
second period of play began it was
with the skirmishing out of the way
and with State fighting on the
knowledge of the enemy’s tactics
learned in the first half. Both of
State’s touchdowns were made by
McGee, the sub fullback, who owed
his presence on the team to the
illness of Captain Forkum. Mc-
Gee’s work, along with that of Mc
llveen and Yeckley, the other mem
bers of State's backfield, was spec
tacular. The half was not long on
the way before Dickinson’s defense
wavered, and after vicious attacks
by Yeckley, Mcllveen, and McGee,
the Dickinson forwards were in
variably spilled all over the field.
There was no stopping State, once
its backfield was on its stride. That
tangible quality called spirit gripped
the Blue and White once it found
power to advance the ball, and
the transformation from a poor sec
ond in the betting odds to the favo
rite was made in a twinkling.
After the kickoff in the second
half play was resumed"on ‘Dickin
son’s 16 yard line. The State de
fense was a wall of stone, and Davis
was forced to punt, the ball going to
Mcllveen in midfield, A swift run
and good dodging brought the
sphere back to Dickinson’s 28 yard
