Old Dominion Boys Make Three
Touchdowns. Fumbling at Criti
cal Moments Lost the Game.
Story of the Game.
In Norfolk last Saturday the
University team went down before
the University of Virginia boys by
the score of seventeen to nothing.
The outcome was a great surprise
to every one and to none more than
the Virginia players. Every one
seemed to have thorough confidence
in the ability of the Tar Heels to
easily win over Virginia, and Caro
lina money was freely offered; but
very little was taken.
The team left Chapel Hill Fri
day morniug and arrived in Norfolk
that evening and stopped at the
Monticello Hotel, where also were
quartered our rivals.
The scene that night in the hotel
lobby was one that baffles des crip
tion. Crowds of college students
in different parts of the Hall were
giving their college yells and songs.
In the sfticious balcony above the
lobby were gathered the elite of
Norfolk. Some of the most beauti
ful women of the two states were
there and all wore the colors of
their favorites. It was especially
pleasing to Carolinians that the
white and blue was out in such full
force, there being about equal dis-
muuuuu ui tuiuio. j.uv jv..
songs were liberally applauded by
the laiffe audience of spectators
but Yackety, Yack! caused a storm j PWfer
of enthusia m.
The betting that night was very
fierce. Odds were offered by each
side, but even money was the pre
vailing bet. The teams retired
early, but their supporters were up
far into the night.
The day of the game was ushered
in early by a regular Christmas
like .noise. It was very cloudy
and a slight rain fell part of the
morning. All the trains brought
in large numbers of people and
mauy Carolinians were among the
tiiimKof TMin utrt-pfs; were filled !
all the morning with yelling
The store windows were beauti
fully decorated with the rival col
ors. All Norfolk was football
wild. At the .hotels betting had
taken a different turn. Carolina
men were offering odds but Vir
ginia money was scarce. 5 to 4
and 7 to 5 went begging. One bet
of $150 to $50 was made that Vir
ginia would not score.
The scene at the Park was a
most beautiful one. On every side
of the gridiron was a mass of
humanity every one waving flags ot
White and Blue or Orange and
Blue. There was about an even
distribution of rooters. The S. A
music during the game. A corps
of 50 policeman preserved perfect
order. Reporters unci official were
allowed inside the ropes.
When the two teams appeared on
the field the whole assemblage rose
en masse, yelling and applauding
and through it all could be heard:
Wah! Hoo! Wahs and Yackity!
Yacks vieing with each other.
Captain Osborne and Captain
Lloyd tossed for choice and Virginia
won, and chose to defend the north
goal and receive the kick-off. Car
olina played the poorest game she
has played this season, while Vir
ginia acknowledged that their team
played by far the finest game of the
season. We fumbled at critical
moments. Virginia would gain by
long runs around our end and some
of our best players seemed to be
Virginia played by far a better
game than Carolina. Graves punt
ed well, and in the last part of
first half, our boys carried the
ball down the field in a quick series
of rushes, but just before reaching
the goal line another fumble was
made. Virginia played unusually
fast ball and Carolina was often
caught unprepared. The only un
pleasant incident of the game oc-
cured just before the second
half ended. Harris was put out of
the game by the referee for kicking
Graves, otherwise the contest was
singularly free from all dirty and
foul playing. Not a single off-side
play was called during. the game.
