Amherst with only tour of last year's men on the line-up were »ble to baffle their opponents in all stages of the game. LaGrange came to Amherst with a heavy team, expecting to trounce the local boys by a large score. Several old grid stars who were st the game stated thut LaGrange outweighed the locals by over ten pounds to the man, which gave them greater chances for a victory. It appeared that their excess weight was Invaluable as Amherst's backfleld was* able to penetrate their line without any difficulty. End runs and forward passes were also special features of the game. Amherst made gains of 10 and 16 yards around LaGrange's ends, which netted three touchdowns tor Amherst. Taking Into consideration that Amherst practically lost their whole line last year, this year's new men played a fast and snappy fame of hall, qut- playing their opponents In all plays. Coon, playing center for Amherst, was in every play, making holes for Amherst's backfleld with ease. When on the offensive, he broke up nearly all ot LaGrange's line plunges. The Wilford brothers on ends, played an excellent game, breaking up end runs with unusual ability. Leimbach, Abersold and Hahn at tackles played a great defensive game, in that they were able to get their opponents out of reach on all of Amherst's line plunges. Amherst's backfleH Is the same as last year with the exception of Hearn, who graduated last year. T. Neumeis- terf who is taking his place this year, played the game as If he were an old veteran at the game, making large gains through the line and also around the ends. The game opened with Amherst kicking to LaGrange. LaGrange was unable to penetrate Amherst's line and lost the ball after four downs. Amherst took possession of the ball and made great headway. They were, however, obliged to punt after eight downs which gave LaGrange the ball again. They failed to make any headway and punted to Amherst on the thirty-yard line. Amherst received the punt and took it to the fifty-yard line and with ten more plays, L. Neumelster took the ball across the line for the first touch-down. T. Neumelster kicked goal, making the score 7-0. The second quarter was very much the same as the first, Monger making the second touch-down on a line plunge. T. Neumelster failed to kick goal. L. NeUmelster scored again in the third quarter on an end run and T. Neumelster kicked goal, making the score 20-0 in Amherst's favor. LaGrange put in two new men in the last quarter but was of little use as L. Neumelster took the ball across again for Amherst's fourth and last touch-down. A large crowd attended the game and prospects for a successful sessop are goo<Ly**An effort is being made to Improve the high school's new field at the end of Harris street by filling In the furrows which will make the field the best that Amherst has ever had.
