A. & M. GAME.
Score 11 to 11. Both Teams Great
ly Surprised. Carolina's
The game in Raleigh last Satur
day between the Varsity eleven and
that of A &M College of Raleigh
was to say the least, very surpris,
itig and disappointing. For the
first time this year the Varsity has
allowed her opponents to score, and
for the first time in the history of
athletics here has A &M scored on
her. The game was as much a
surprise to the "farmers" as it was
The result is not so very bad
when we consider the broken up
condition of our players. The cen
tre was a new "man, never having
played that position jn a game be
fore and while he played a good
ball, yet the players lacked that
confidence which they would natur
ally have for an old man. Bennett
and Shull, Carolina's two famous
tackles, were neither in the game
and their places were filled by
scrubs. The other players were
suffering from bruises and injuries
and then the hard, rocky ground
on which' the teams played, (but we
iliake no excuse), caused Carolina
to be scored on to the amount of
eleven points; and here is the story
of the game.
Ball is kicked to Carolina's 15'
yard line, and Koehler secures it,
makes one yard and then no gain.
A kick is called for and on bad pass
of centre, Graves fumbles it and
A &M secures it on our 2 yard line.
"Tackles left" is called for and
for two successi ve downs Varsity
holds them in their place, but then
the ball is given to Turner and he
plunges through for the first touch
down that his college has ever
scored against us. Person kicks
