The third gridiron game of the Olympics took place yesterday between
Camp 4 and Camp 5B. Both teams entered the field full of spirit and
confidence, although the Camp 4 team had previously protested having
to take a chance on playing both of the Camp 5 teams. Even though Norman
Crawford, captain of the Camp 4 team, did considerable boasting before the
game, it appeared pretty certain to your reporter that he could see a hard
game ahead for him.
Camp 5 played some hard-hitting ball, their main asset being their
fast, wide end runs by Rix, Brooks, and Cookson. With their good blocking
and fast running, these men netted the Camp 5 team the winning yardage.
If not for the numerous 15 yard penalties imposed on them for using
hands while on the offence, Camp 5 could have probably been able to score.
In spite of this however, at the 3rd quarter Camp 5 had piled up 112 yards
to their credit with Camp 4 tailing with only 56 yards, and game time being
cal1ed on a 0-0 score. The game was given to Camp 5 on yardage, but
after much disagreement on the part of Camp 4, the winner was final1y
decided by the flip of a coin, with Camp 5 stil~ emerging the victor.
Regardless of yardage, coins, penalties, or what have you, the Camp
5 team displayed excel1ent teamwork, and out ran, out passed, and out
played the "old men'. of the Camp 4 team at every turn, no matter how
hard they fought. Good defences were put up al1 the way by the Camp
5 team, with Douglas, McGreevy, McKell, and Hoffman, doing a
wonderful job of stopping everything coming their way. Al1 in al1, Camp
5 played a good game of football, and the boys deserve a lot of praise for
the fine display of sportsmanship throughout the entire game.
