Waterville received the kick-off and marched forty yards down the field and it looked like it might be a Waterville day but the home team strengthened and held Waterville for downs and then- marched straight down the field for a touchdown.

The feature of the game was probably at the beginning of the second half, when Coach Darby sent in Snyder, Rhoades, Swan and Lobaugh in the backfield and Hutton as center.
