HERE is a pass which went wrong. At the beginning of this play Yale had ball on Harvard's six yard line (see goal post at extreme upper left of picture).
Fi i she tried a lateral forward pass. Harvard's right wingback (1) on his own goal line, and is here shown after he had run about fifty yards with "the pack" in full cry at his heels.
A Yale player (2), who made the pass, is on even terms with him and had the Harvard player (S) been fast enough legally to "clip" him from behind, the runner would have scored without further opposition.
As it happened player (2) caught (1) about ten yards from their present positions.
