Team Defeated On the Gridiron liy Local Eleven. THE FOOTBALL SEASON OPENED The Fierce Assaults of Prentiss, Mc Dannell and Brinlon Were Too Much For the Visitors and They Succumb, 10 to O. With the mercury standing 82 degrees yesterday, the Warren ushered in the foot ball seasoii for '98 in this city, with a game with the P. and R. A. A., of Philadelphia. Considering it was the first game for both teams, the contest was quite inter esting. The visitors had the weight, but that is always outclassed by science, consequently the Warren won their first game by a score of 10 to 0. On the Warren there were several new faces, new, though, only to the Warren, as they have made quite a reputation on other teams; they were Smith, Milligan and Percy Garrett. Yes terday they all played in record form and received the just approval of the audience. Owing to the warmth of the weather very short halves were played, but this was enough to prove to the "rooters" that their old standby, Warren, after a year of rest, had not deteriorated any, but if anything, after a little more prac tice, would be better than ever. Barring a little fumbling all the home boys played well, especially Prentiss, McDannell, Brinton and Porter. For the visitors the best work was done bv Keyser, Shellenberger, the big guard, and McCormick. The first touchdown was made by McDannell fifteen minutes after play had started. Three minutes afterwards Porter got the pigskin on a fumble by the visitors and made a bril liant eighty-yard dash across the field for a touchdown. The second half was devoted to trick plays and drilling the new men who in tins half relieved some of the regulars. The movement of the ball follows: The visitors won the toss and choose the ball. Courtney kicked of! to Brinton, who passed it to Bailey, who gained five yards before being downed. Chambers took it next but failed t* gain; Prentiss then circled right end for eight yards; Brinton hit left tackle for four yards and Smith the same place for three yards; McDannell then went around left end for twenty yards. The Warren fumbled and the P. & R. A. A. got the ball, Shellenberger tried centre without gain. P. & R. A. A. fumbles and Green secured the ball, Prentiss went two yards through center, and around right end for twenty yards more; Smith and Brinton hit centre for four and three yards each; McDannell on a run around end lost three yards; Pren tiss lost one yard through centre, Pren tiss gains five yards around right end, but the ball goes over on downs to the visitors eight yard line. Shellenberger fails to gain, and then gains three vards through left tackle; McCormick then loses two yards and the ball goes toWarren on downs. 1'rentiss gets five yards through right tackle; Warren fumbles but Green got it; Mc Dannell then goes through right tackle j for three yards and a touchdown. Pren tiss kicked it out for a trial at goal and Brinton caught the ball. Prentiss missed the goal. Score, Warren 5, Philadelphia and Reading A. A. 0. The bull is brought to the center of the field and Courtney kicks off to Brinton, who passes to Bailey and eight yards is lost bv the operation.

Ttieir captain also did a lot oi it. All the new men showed up well. A large crowd of lady rooters were present. Shellenberger, the fat boy, after a scrimmage was heard to say, ''This ain't no pink tea." George Prentiss was bothered with a large boil. This didn't help him any. Fumbling was very prominent on both teams. Due to not knowing the signals. It was readily seen that the Warren is in need of more practice. Percy Garrett, the new quarter back, played well in his position. Prentiss and McDannell showed that they are both still able to run an end. Brinton bucked the line in his old time form. There's only one Brinton. Doc Traynor, after a two years' rest, was back at end. If vou notice few gains was made around the end. Keyser was the visitors best ground gainer. He tackled well also. That run of Porters was a pretty thing to look at. He showed he was watching the ball. The man on a football team who fol lows the ball is the most valuable. Smith showed that he knows how to go through a line. He will help the team. After the game the visitors consoled each other by telling how they could have stopped the Warren from scoring. Milligan played half in second half and showed that he can hold down that position. The day was more fit for a swimming match than a game of football. Clint Garrett got into the game in the second half and played end. It's hard to keep 'em out. During the rest of the season all the Warren games will be played at Union street grounds. of a a a j ■ DELAWARE COLLEGE BEATEN Swartbmore College Lads Had an Easy Time—Farqnhar's Fine Playing a Feature. Carl Williams biought his Rough Riders from Swarthmore here yesterday, where they lined up against "the Dela ware College eleven at Union street grounds. The Swarthmore eleven was much heavier than the Delaware boys and with this and their fine team work they had it easy and defeated them by a score of 22toO. Farquhar, their fullback, played an exceptionally fine game, his kicking being the best that was ever seen on the grounds. After the first half, the weather being so warm, Swarthmore took it easy and did nothing but prevent Delaware Col lege from scoring. The Delaware boyB have a good light team but were just outclassed and when they meet a club their weight they will be able to uphold tlieirend.
