An analysis of the -game shows that
Carolina made distance something
like r5 times while Charleston College
made the -required distance on plays
but swice. There were no real stellar
plays during the game, except, pos
sibly, the long run by Gonzales. Sev
eral of the boys played steady, consist
ent ball, as Belser at half and Dargan
at end for Carolina. Perrin netted
good gains, as the details of the game
show. The line men were very much
more aggressive in yesterday's game
than they were the Saturday before
and, as stated, a number of line plays
were pulled off successfully.
Carolina's next game is with the
University of Georgia, which is played
at Athens next Saturday.
All the University rooters had their
voices keyed to the top notch, and
when the team deserved cheering it
came with full force. The spectators
in the grandstand were able to see
most of the game, but it would be far
better if the supporters of the Garnet
and Black would not let their spirits
get away with them and rush out on
the field at times.
