A DISPUTED GAME.
Whether the High School Eleven Was
Defeated or Not Will be Left to
Yesterday was an ideal one for foot
ball and a great battle took place be
tween the warriors which represent the
Drexel Institute of Philadelphia, and
those of the Wilmington High School.
The score, owing to a dispute, cannot
be given, and as George Woodruff, coach
of the University of Pennsylvania, is to
decide the point in dispute, it will be
several days before the score will be
known. Mr. Woodruff has two ways to
decide either that the Drexel boys won
uy the score of 6 to 0 or that the game
was a tie at 0 to 0.
line. The bail was given to Tosh just as
tlie referee called time, and he went over
for a touchdown, and afterwards kicked
the goal. The referee and the High
School boys claimed the ball was dead
when time' was called and therefore the
score didn't count.
They claimed that time couldn't be
called when the ball is in play, and that
the touchdown should count. Of course
the referee's decision is final but as the
visitors would not play if the decision
stood, manager Whitehead concluded
that the fair thing to do was to leave the
decision to an out side party and con
sequently Mr. Woodruff was decided

For the locals Kates' tackling was of
the highest order. Simpson also figured
in several fine plays. The surprise of
the day was Beyan. This lad plays tackle
on the team, but as they have no one
who can kick, he was sfent back to do
this work when a punt was necessary.
Tlie way he did it was remarkable, for
a fellow who never before played that
position. His punts were very well
directed and were also hard and low.
This lad's work was the only thing that
prevented his side from being beaten by
a large score. The Wilmington boys'
line men played a much better game
than any before. Tlie team is now round
ing into form and by tlie time their next
game comes off everything will be 0. K.
