of Buffalo justified the confidence of its partisans and others yesterday
by decisively beating the strong Lehigh University team by a score of 16-0.
It was a hard game, harder than the game with Columbia a week ago, when the score was but 5-0. Both teams yesterday showed that they had been getting down to shape, but nevertheless the halves of 20 minutes were plenty long for either side.
While the weight of the teams was about even, the Buffalo boys showed up quicker on their feet, and that with the determination of a team which had beaten Columbia and wasn’t going to be taken into camp by any other team of lesser prestige, won the game.
Two of the Lehigh men and three of the U. of B. players succumbed to the inevitable during the progress of the game.
There were sensational features enough to keep the 3000 spectators in the Pan-American Stadium warm, though the wind was cold and biting.
It is of interest
to notice that Case School of Cleveland was defeated by the overwhelming
score of 57 to 0 by Michigan yesterday and that Columbus had all she could
do to score against Williams. Case plays here before long, and Buffalo
goes to Ann Arbor to tackle the Michigan terrors before the season closes.
Cornell had a fierce struggle to beat Bucknell, and the football enthusiasts of the Ithaca College must feel somewhat down by the scantily volume.
In the game yesterday, Lehigh won the toss and Buffalo kicked off against the wind. Lehigh tried the line with but little avail and on the third down made a fullback kick that was excellently placed, and which went 35 yards.
Assaults upon the Lehigh line by Buffalo were not productive of much gain so Mason punted 20 yards. Lehigh began an attack upon Buffalo’s right side which gained five yards on two incisive plunges but which was then stopped. The ball was brought out to the 25 yard line and Buffalo kicked off to Lehigh’s 45 yard line. Lehigh tried the line again and in two plunges gained four yards and then lost three in a fumble. Another Lehigh kick was blocked and a Buffalo man fell on the ball on Lehigh’s 45 yard line.
The Bison’s then began attacks on the ends with great success. De Cue got eight around the right, and Haase eight around the left. Lakin got eight by the right and wasn’t downed until the ball was within a foot of the Lehigh goal line. Then mason was jammed through for the first touchdown ‘midst wild demonstration upon part of the Blue and White followers.
MISSED A GOAL
Rice Missed the goal
from a difficult position. Score Buffalo 5, Lehigh 0.
Lehigh kicked off to Buffalo’s 15 yard line, but the ball was brought 15 yards. After two ineffective drives at the line, Mason punted beautifully 35 yards and then in the next scrimmage got through the line so fast that he through seemingly the whole Lehigh team back three full yards. He seemed to do it alone.
It was still Lehigh’s ball and A. Farabaugh did a plucky 10 yards through Buffalo’s right tackle and but for the unerring tackle of Ubehaun would have had clear field for a touchdown. Lehigh’s next play at the same spot was stopped quick and with 6 yards to gain Lehigh attempted a kick which was blocked for a 10 yard loss.
Lehigh then on a double pass, a tackle back play and formations against the right and left sides forced the ball to Buffalo’s 30 yard line, and had it there when the whistle blew for the end of the first half.
The wind was against Lehigh’s kick off in the second half to Buffalo’s 15 yard line. Lakin got back 20 yards before he was downed and then got around the right for 5 and for 3. A trick wing play with the ends over, Lakin carrying the ball gained 20 yards for Buffalo, and successive bucking got the ball to Lehigh’s 40 yard line where it was lost on downs.
DECUE’S GREAT RUN
On the next
line-up the most spectacular play of the game occurred. The ball
was Lehigh’s but there was a fumble on the line, and after a second or
so De Cue emerged from the waving mass of arms and legs, being squeezed
out like paint from a tube, apparently. He had the ball and dusted
out for the Lehigh goal at a mighty gait. Five men followed him,
but to the assignment of everybody they were all Buffalo men. They
had gotten through the same hole and opened up like a bunch of blue lights
from a rocket. De Cue thought they were enemies instead of interference
for his benefit and never stopped sprinting till he got safely behind the
goal posts for the second touchdown. Rice again failed for the goal.
Lehigh kicked off to Buffalo’s 20 yard line. Smiley got back 10 yards. De Cue made a great run for 15 yards around the left end, but the ball was knocked from his hands. Haase fell on it however , and after more tries for the line, Buffalo punted for 20 yards. Lehigh fumbled the kick and a Buffalo man fell on the ball, amidst riotous yells, Smiley hurdled for 10 yards. Then he was put through the right side to Lehighs 10 yard line. Epsey was shoved through to the four yard line and then Smiley got over for the third touchdown and Rice kicked the goal. Score Buffalo 16, Lehigh 0.
The Lehigh men had but three minutes more to play, and forced things pretty hard, but the whistle blew for the end when the ball was on Buffalo’s 30 yard line. The Lehighs had been clearly outplayed. The line-up:
