CANTON WINS GAME EASILY
Massillon Could Not Stand Canton’s Line Plunges
When Canton and Massillon High met yesterday at the park, fortune favored the red and black. Massillon was defeated by even a greater score than at Canton, the final score being 28-0. As at Canton, Canton made their principal gains by means of the forward pass, which was worked several times, netting astonishing gains. Also the bull-like rushes of Hershey wrecked devastation on Massillon’s line.
Canton scored touchdown and goal and a place kick at nineteen yards, making ten points. In the second half they scored three touchdowns, succeeding to kicking goal every time.
A fine crowd attended the game, the high school turning out almost in a body, and Canton brought along a large delegation. The songs and yells which had been carefully practiced for several days were much in evidence, and quite a rooting match took place between Canton and Massillon enthusiasts.
The Wells twins and Dow played the game for Massillon and were always under the heap.
