Massillon Eleven Fights in Vain Against Odds

All the Members Were Not Present,

Other Football Matters and Sporting News Generally

The game of football, Wednesday afternoon, at the fair grounds, between the Canton and Massillon high school elevens, resulted in defeat for the latter by the score of 46 to 0.  The Massillon boys only decided at the last minute to go to Canton, and, as usual, when the time set for the departure drew near, the management of the team found that several players were missing.  A hasty round up was made, and a patched up team was at last gotten together.  The Canton captain won the toss up, and chose the ball and the west end of the field.

Massillon kicked off and after about two minutes of playing, Rackle, of Canton, had scored a touchdown, Canton also kicked goal.  Massillon now got possession of the ball on the kick off, kept it one down and then lost it on a fumble, Rackle again scoring a touchdown for Canton.  Goal was also kicked.  Canton scored one more touchdown before time for the first half was called.

The second half was a repetition of the first, only more scores were made.  The Massillon boys simply could do nothing but watch their county seat friends carry the ball over the line and kick goal.

Rackle and Van Horn, of the Canton team, had the wind knocked out of them several times, and the Massillon boys sustained some bad bruises, but no one was severely hurt.  Royer, of Canton, acted as referee.

Other Athletic and Sporting News

The Canton high school eleven in a hotly contested game of football, Wednesday afternoon at the Massillon baseball park, defeated the Massillon high school team by a score of 5 to 0.  The game was scheduled to begin at 3:30 but it was nearly 4, when all the preliminaries, were arranged.  The Canton aggregation came in a special car, accompanied by many friends and admirers, among who were many ladies.  The Massillon school also turned out in force, and the cries of the rivals filled the air.

The toss up was won by Schnierle, the Massillon captain, who chose the west end of the field and the kickoff.  Canton, after making a small gain, lost the ball on a fumble by the quarterback.  Massillon, after a vain attempt to trample the Canton team into the ground, also lost the ball in the same manner.  The Canton team’s superior weight now began to tell on the Massillon line, and finally Rob was rushed across the line for a touchdown.

Massillon then kicked off, and held the Canton team for three downs, obtained the ball and by a good run by Wiseman advanced the ball ten yards.  J. Miller punted the ball far into the enemy’s territory just as time was called.

The second half was a hard struggle between the teams, Massillon trying hard to score, and the Canton boys working just as hard to prevent them, when time was called the Massillon team, was very near the Canton goal line.  The halves were of twenty minutes’ duration each.

The features of the game were the tackling of Young and J. Miller, and the end running of Wiseman.  Ray L. Markel, of this city, and Boyer, of Canton, were the referees.  J.M. Sarver acted as timekeeper.  The game was very free from objectionable slugging.  There were no accidents.
