MASSILLON HIGH
BEATEN SATURDAY
Trimmed By
New Philadelphia High, 13 to 6
LOCALS SHOW POOR FORM
Massillon Team Lacks Life
Players Play As Though Afraid of Being Injured
Make Touchdown In Last Three minutes of Play

In an interesting game that abounded with open playing, Massillon high lost to New Philadelphia high Saturday afternoon at New Philadelphia, by a score of 13 to 6. Massillon made its only touchdown in the last three minutes of play, when the team was playing sensational ball and had there been a few more minutes the score might have been a tie.

The Massillon team put up a poor exhibition of football. The New Philadelphia team was clearly inferior to the local squad but the playing was lifeless and the individual players acted as though afraid of being injured. The local line did not hold and at times the backs were tackled before they would get started.

Rudy made the only touchdown for Massillon, when he plunged through the line after the ball had been worked into New Philadelphia territory on a series of line bucks.
