' First Clash of
' These Teams
Carried Ball by Hushing Only 31 Yards
in Entire (lame Brattieboro Pow
, in Entile (iame ISrattleboro Tow
Tackles IJest for Some Time. !
The Bennington high school football
team made its first appearance in Brat
tieboro Saturday and was literally bur
ied by Iirattlehoro's pigskin chasers, 4G
to O. - -
The local team never played harder
football than in this game. Their of
fense was powerful and the defense was
slashing, the tackling being the best they
have shown for some. time.
Coach Stolte trotted out neaily the
entire squad and even with the substi
tutes in, the visitors never had a chance.
Their offensive was slow in starting and
lacked the power to drive. Only once
during the entire game were they able
to make first down, winle Brattieboro
made first down almost at will.
The weakness of .Bennington's offen
sive or the aggressiveness of the local
team's defense is shown by the fact that
the visitors throughout the game car
ried" the ball by rushing a total of ."1
yards. A good kicker would have
helped them some, but the best punt
produced by them only carried yards.
On "the other hand Brattieboro showed
a wonderfully strong attack, carrying
the ball by rushing 403 yards. Forward
passes, netted them a total of C7 yards.
1.. Heywoud made some pretty runs for
Brattieboro, carrying the ball behind per
fect interference for a total of ltio
yards Manley did his usual lion's share
of the work and -showed marked im
provement in his handling of the team.
Brittan was used to a very good ad
vantage, making several big gains. His
running back of punts also was very
good. Considering the condition of the ball,
which was wet and slippery, both teams
did very little fumbling, although Brat
tieboro g"t away with three wild passes
at thty-start of the game, but after this
their handling of the ball was clean cut.
Tup line showed considerable strength
over last week, breaking through while
on the defensive and opening good holes
for the back on the offensive.
McGarrigle," up to the time he was
disqualified, played "the best brand of
ball he has ever shown.
llobb was blfgl to leave the game
in the third prrit after dislocating two
fi users.
End to end', the line, including the
substitutes, showed themselves to be
capable of putting up a stiff tight.
Foley, apparently Bennington? ' best
player, was in no condition to piny, but
was unable to stand the strain and en
tered the game in the second period, but
jut before the whistle blew for the close
of the first half he mad" a hard tackle
on Brittan, who bad almost a clear
field, and again injured his strained
Bennington won the toss and chose to
receive the kickoff, which was returned
to the 32-yarri ' line. On the second
play Brattieboro drew a five-yard offside
penalty, giving the visitors the ball on
their 40-yard line, A plunge through
the line netted live yards, but the ad
vance was then cut short as Brattieboro
recovered a fumble.
The locals then put u; a poor showing
for a brief few minutes. On the first
play the ball was snapped over the
backs heads, bounding and bouncing
along to their 117-yard line before it was
recovered, and to make bad matters
worse the play was repeated except that
tiie loss this time was only eight yards.
This put Brattieboro in a bad way, for
they were now within 10 yards of the
goal they were defending, with 4." yards
to go for first down. Manley ripped off
eight vards and then called for a kick.
I,. IleVwoml booted to midtield and the
plav was sfotied after an advance of 10
yards. Wide-awake playing gave the
"locals the Advantage oti the next play,
when an intercepted forward pass gave
them possession ot tne Dan on tneir .
yard line. Manley went off tackle for
eight yards, but again the pass went
wrens and Brattieboro lost four yards.

a war for a nrettv run. this time for IS
yards. Brattieboro got the breaks on

-without trying a single play. Manley

line before the period emh-d.
On the first play in the second period
Manley went over for the second touch
down." Manley threw a pass to Ulmer
for the point : after touchdown.
Brattieboro again kicked off and here
the visitors showed for the only time in
the game. Starting on their 32-yard
line they made two gains of six yards
each for their only first down of the
game. The next play was spilled and
then they managed to rip off three
VHrds more, but here they were stopped.
McGarrigle brPke; through and nailed the
next play for a nine-yard loss, forcing
Bennington to kick, Roberts recovering
and advancing 11 yards before being
brought to earth. Brittan slipped
around tie end for 20 yards. E.
Ileywood got 21 yards more for the
t-uchdown. and Manley threw a pass to

after returning the ball 12 yards, kicked
on the first play. Brittan recovered
and brought the ball back 22 yards.

the locals drew a five-yard penalty for
offside. E. Ileywood took a pass from
Manley and went over for the touch
down, and Ianley again plunged over
the line for the point, .
Brattieboro klJked and Bennington did
likewise on the first play. Brittan, re
ceiving on bis 40-yard line, started a
wide sweep across the field and got
clear of all but Foley, who brought him
down on the 30-yard line after a run of
30 yards.
Foley hurt bis bad ankle on the play
and had to retire. This ended the, second

Vermont Academy and Bratfleboro High
to I'lay Here Teams Appear
Very Evenly Matched.
The Brattieboro high selioo! football
team is now showing real class, and
with good weather there should tie a rec
ord crowd out for next Saturday's game,
when the locals meet the strong Vermont
academy team. The fans will remember
that last year these teams played a close
game, the locals winning. 11 to 12.
Both have better teams than last year,
and a close, hard fought gam should re
sult. Brattieboro defeated Bellows Falls 1
to 7. while Vermont academy turned the
same triek last Saturday 10 t 7. Com
parative scores would tend to show these
teams very evenly matched, and this
should be the season's treat.

Third Time Series Is Taken By Straight

NEW YORK, Oct. 9. The Giants
again were crowned wrrld champions by
virtue of their fourth straight victory
over the uninspired Yankees yesterday,
the score being f to 3. One can afford
to omit talk of the 3 to 3 10-inning tie
between the. teams Thursday afternoon.
Every game that went to a decision was
a victory for the National leaguers.
Only twice before1, when the Boston
Braves beat up the Athletics in 1014 in
four straight, and in 1007 when the Cubs
tied the Tigers and then beat up the
Jungle cats Ln the next four, has the
losing chib failed to pin at
game as consolation.

eligible one or two generally getting a
mall out it is impossible to tell ac
curately what the average ulice will be.
The prospect, however is about $4,470,
which is far from being a record-breaker
though the shortness of the series
makes it pretty high for five days' work.
The losing Yankees get the balance of
$74,193, which, figured on a basis of con
jecture' similar to that used in estimating
the individual. Giants' share, would be
about $3,225.
Each club actually gets $$2,430.57,
but each of them must pay half of that
to its respective league treasury.
The remainder of the gate receipts,
$72,591.1 E goes to the advisory coun
cil, presided over by Commissioner Lan
dis. It probably will be enough to pay
his salary and for the maintenance of
his office. ;

which is generally believed will be less
than it cost either dub to met its

like a bankrupt sale.
