it was a beautiful day for foot ball, and

the Catholic High School of I'hilnilel
the High School team
phia took advantage of it and lined up j |
at Union street grounds yesterday after-1
noon. Alt.. the visitors greatly ;
outweighed the locals they did not play |
as good a game, and it was no disgrace j
to our boys to lose, as it was weight that
beat them and nothing else.
The game was very interesting to the
onlookers, as it was full of many bril
limit plays, among them being the run
ning of Adams and Bulger for the visit
ors; in fact the hitter's 80-yard run was a
pretty piece of work. For the local
boys Simmons made the best gains, and
his 20-yard rim around right end was
very fine.
Our old standby, Grove, stopped the
visitors from making many gains by his
phenominal tackling. Gouert, Lingo
and Captain Huxley also tackled very
well. In fact the whole Wilmington
eleven played a great game.
The following w ill tell the reader how
the game was lost.
The game started by Bulger kicking off
to Lawton, who ran it back 10 yards;
Simmons gained 5 yards round right end,
Middleton no gain. Huxley, at tins
stage of the game, fumbled the ball,
but got it himself; Lawton was then
forced to kick to the visitors, fumbled it,
and Lingo fell on the hall. Simmons
made 5 yards and Lingo 2 yards, and a
w»'ai p tackle by Megill forced Middleton
lack 2 yards, lluxlev then worked the
quarter hack kick, hut the hall did not
go 10 yards, and the visitors got the hall.
Brown took the pig skin around right
end for 15 yards, and a brilliant tackle by
Groves stopped Adams from gaining.
The locals then got the* ballon downs
and, they failing to gain, Lawton kicked
and McLaughlin fumbled it and Gouert
got the ball. The Wilmington hoys still
failed to gain and the visitors got the hall i
on downs. Bulger then gained yards, j

ball. Bulger failed to gain as did Adams
and on the next play Adams gained 5
yards around left end. Time was here
called for the first half. Score, 0 to 0.
The second half opened by Huxley
kicking off to Ecock, who ran the hall

Adams failed to gain, and Bulger went

degrees to dust, will so honeycomb
characters that all wortli will be de
stroyed.
