Final Game of the Interclass Series
Played Yesterday--A Decided Vic-
tory for Laws--Attendance
In one of the best class games wich
has ever been played in Ann Arbor,
the 1904 Laws yesterday morning'on
Ferry Field defeated the 1906 Enin-
eers by a score of 6 to 0. The game
was characterized throughout by fist,
clean play, and the lack of fumbles
was a proof of hrd and consistent
'practice o the prt of both teams.
The game resulted in a clear
victory for the taws, and leaves
no doubt as to which class is due the
football championspip of 1903. The
glory was not conined to the game
alone, for the Engieers were routed
in the rush which took place after the
fray on the gridiron. The Laws form-
ed themselves int a triumphal pro-
cession and marched from the gates
of Ferry Field to the Law, Building,
-where they broke up, happy in having
won for two successive years the in-
terclass pennant.
In the first half, with the exception
of Hahn's long run, the honors were
fairly eually divided, but in the sec-
snd half the Engineers were outplay-
d both on the offensive and defen-
sive. The Laws first kicked off to
he Engineers, who on not being able
to advance tpe ball, punted, the Laws
were equally unfortunate in not be-
ing able to gain, and a kicking dual
ensued until the ball was in the cen-
ter of the field. Here Hahn, by a
clever dodging and hurdling run,
broke away for a touchdown. For
the rest of the half neither side was
able to gain substantially, and time
was called with the ball in the center
of the gridiron. I this half Knight
drop-kicked from the 35-yard line. It
was a pretty try, but the ball fell
short. In the second half the Engin-
eers kicked off to the Laws, who car-
ried the ball the whole length of the
field to the Engineers' 15-yard line.
Here Badenock attempted a place
kick, which was blocked and bounded
back to the Engineers' 40-yard line,
where the ball was downed and saved
for the Laws by Lee. The Laws were
unable to advance the oval and punt-
ed, here the Engineers by their most
brilliant play of the day, started for
the Law goal, but were forced to punt
o the Laws 20-yard line.
Mathews by a very pretty quarter-
back run carried the ball 20 yards
into the Engineers' territory. Further
play was interrupted by time being
The halves were 15 and 20 minutes
long, and Coach Yost officiated both
as referee and umpire. Time keepers
were Boyd and Jones. Linesmen
were Karston and Walton.
The line-up was as follows:

With this game the interclass sched-
ule has been brought to a close with-
out a hitch. Manager Harry Wier de-
serves considerable ciedit for having
so capably directing the interclass
work, and for bringing the season suc-
cessfully to a close.
