FOOTBALL IN DETROIT
U. of M. Defeats the D. A. C. In the Second Game of the Season.
Not a Single Point Was Scored Against Us.
[special to the Daily.]
DETROIT, Oct. 18, 1890.
Game was called at 3:30 this afternoon in a drizzling rain. About 250 were present.
The general play was better than in the Albion game, although the ground was too slippery for team playing or tricks.
The teams line up with Vat Nortwick, ’93, as referee, and Sidney Miller, D. A. C., as umpire.
The D. A. C. eleven is a strong one, though the men show some lack of training. The U. of M. team seems a trifle heavier. The play of the first half consists almost entirely of short rushes, and the V with Jewett and Grosh behind it. The D. A. C’s played hard, but our rush line was a little too strong for them, and soon carried the ball over the line. No goal. The ball was rushed over again soon after, and then Jewett closes the first half by making two more tonchdowns, kicking a goal from the last one. Score for first half-U. of M., 18; D. A. C., 0.
Second half-With the score 18-0 against them, the D. A. C’s began a more vigorous style of play, hoping, at any rate, to score against us. But Captain Malley’s control of the team is much better than in the Albion game and the defensive play is too strong for our opponents to score. In fact, but for the wet condition of the ground, which rendered good play well nigh impossible, our score would have gone much higher.
Four tonchdowns were made by Jewett, from two of which goals were kicked, making 20 points for us in the second half. Totol score-U. of M., 38; D. A. C., 0.
Our whole team showed improvement, but the play of Malley, Chadbourne, Dygert, and Jewett deserves special mention.
Only once was our goal in danger, when, in first half, Frazer’s long run was made, which, however, was disallowed by the referee, after a vigorous kick by Malley.
