The only touchdown of the game was made in the first quarter, in a forward pass play, from Lindsey to Sather. During nearly all the game it ap peared to spectators that the Troy team out-played their opponents, playing more of an offensive game, while the Libby boys put up a very strong de fense. Both teams tried many passes, many of them were not completed, and both teams showed some expert punt ing. The Troy lineup is äs follows.— R. Lindsey, R. end; Savage, R tackle; Thomas, R. guard; Wilcox, center; White, L. guard; Holmes, L, tackle; Sather, L. end; Lindsey, Q. back; Cole, R, H. back; Durfey, L. H. back; Coff man, F, back.
