SOUTH CAROLINA DEFEATED. North Carolina Comes Off Victor in an Interesting Game at Co lumbia Saturday. South Carolina is far from dis graced because defeated by the team from the neighboring State yesterday atternoon. J. he score was 17 to 0. From start to finish the local collegians put up a plucky struggle and long before the first half was at an end cheers of admira tion rose from the disinterested spectators to mingle with those of the crowd of supporters of the Gar net and Black. Few had expected victory and many had no idea of so small a score on the part of the visitors. They came with a record of vic tories of which few of the Southern teams can boast, and won on many a hard fought field. South Caro lina's team was green and had play ed but one game that could hard ly be dignified by the name. Five of the men had never appeared in a foot ball game of any merit before Yet the team stood like veterans the rushes of the North Carolinians and time and again the ball went to South Carolina on account of the inability of the other side to gain. The visitors stuck very closely to old line foot ball, using no new . for mation as was expected as a result of the new rules. Tackle-back for mations and tandem bucks were ll,:ed time and again. South Caro lina's ends showed up well through out the game, and the Tar Heels seemed to consider the line a better chance than the ends. Foster's courage and grit was equalled only by his skill as a player. Few plays crossed his end, though the inter ference of the North Carolinians swept him from his feet. McKay, who was substituted in the second half, also appeared to advantage, getting into the plays with spirit. Oliver broke the North Carolinians' line several times and aided ma terially in sending Capt. Gunter through the holes.
