Athens won the toss, took the
hall, and opened the greatest con
test, before five thousand spectators
over seen on a Southern gridiran.
The Savannah men sbudf red
when they saw the University take
their positions for the Deland Hy

ted, however—only netting a gain
of five yards.
Then a fumble and two yards
were lost. Black was sent against
Savannah for three yards. Halsey
added five through center.

continued running in tandem, varied
with gains by tutleback, ball was
carried within six inches of Savan
nah's goal. It looked as if the
’Varsity boys were bound to score,
but Savannah realising that defeat
was staring her in the face, studded
her battering ram and not an inch
did she waver.
While the’Varsity was thus ham
mering away, time was called for
the first half. Score, 0 to 0.

went wild, for Trcnehard had made
the run of the day impressing the
crowd with his ability.
Savannah then fumbled and as
usual Athens covered the pigskin.
The turtle hack was then used suc
cessfully until time was called.
Score 0 to 0.
Yells were exchanged and one of
the most exciting contests ever seen
on a Southern gridiron was ended.
The large crowd piesent, did not
fail to share their enthusiasm with
the University boys.
The University boys enjoyed a
hearty reception, especially by the
University Club, were treated
royally by the Savannah people and
leave the city with memories of a
day most pleasantly spent. Both
thu military clubs, IIu£2afs and
Guards extended invitations to visit
them during the stay, but were pre
vented by shortness of time.
Five thousand people witnessed
the game and the athletic fund has

During the first half when the

goal, a bull-dog, held by a Savan
nah enthusiast, broke loose, ran on
the field, battled with Brown’s hair,
hut of no avail.
This, however, raised the indigna

Augusta substitutes Steed, < Jury,
Armstlong, It. Eve.
Athens substitutes llirsch, Mur
phey and C. Barrow.
The men of both teams were in
excellent condition, but the Augusta
team seemed rather nervous for
their inexperience. The Athens
boys were confident from the first,
knowing through our Augusta hoys
the kind of men they had to deal
with, and relying on our own skill
Mr. Ernest Brown, of the Univer
sity, was chosen as referee, and Mr.
John Barnes as umpire. To the
vast majority, the decisions of both
gentlemen were entirely satisfacto-
ty* though by some of tbe disap
pointed Augusta enthusiasts a little
dissatisfaction was manifested.
On the toss up the hall went to
Augusta, Athens choosing then tin-
goal. The playing was begun by a
wedge which gained for the Augus
ta team 14 yards At the next play
Smith made a fumble giving the
ball to Athens.
Our boys now bucked center for
a gain of six yards, followed by two
successful runs through left guard
and tackle for five and eight yards.
Athens now lost the ball, but after
gaining it, Augusta lost ten yards
giving the ball again to the ‘Varsi
ty boys who made a touchdown in
little time. A goal was kicked by
Captain Butler making the score ti
Augusta again started out with
the ball, but in a few moments lost
it. Then began steady gains for
Athens principally through Shack
elford's phenomenal playing, amt
ending in a touchdown. The score
was now ID to 0.
Now Augusta formed a wedge
and gained eight yards. Losing
the hall after three plays, it went
to Athens, and was kicked by
Blown. Augusta then made a run
of twenty yards. Soon Athens had
the ball again and il was tbe work
of only a few mi nil t • s to make an
other touchdown and kick a go'.i
making the score lb to n. "
After a little more unsuccessful
playing in which VVrigley was hurt,
time was called ending first half.

Athens has the ball, bill gritude
termination is written on the faces
of the Augusta team, and only a
slight gain is made. After a gain
of five yards by tie- turtle back Hal
sey takes the ball ami makes a good
run around right end being tackled
by Whitney Now by beautiful
runs around right and left ends
steady gains are made by the ’Var
■itv hoys, and soon a touchdown is
secured, making the score 20 to 0 in
favor of Athens.
Augusta starts out with the hall
again but as usual, soon loses it.
In a scrimmage Smith has his nose
broken and face badly bruised. He
is plucky mid in a few minutes
enters the play again. After a
good deal of playing and steady
gains another touchdown was made
by the ’Varsity boys giving them a
score of 24 to 0. No goal was
kicked because in placing il tim
bal I touched tin- ground and was
taken by an Augusta man.
The Augusta boys now seemed to
play better than before but to no
avail. In a few minutes time was
called and the score stood 24 to 0
in favor of the University.
To say the least of it, the game
was u walk-over. The superior skill
of Athens showed from the first that
the game was hers. The Augusta
men averaged at least eleven pounds
each more than the Athens boys, but
were clumsy and knew little of
