Island Cup

Vineyard Wins Moral Victory in Holiday Game

For the Vineyard footballers, the outcome of yesterday’s game with Nantucket in a scoreless tie was a moral victory. The young Vineyarders held the experienced Nantucketers down to an even-stephen nothingness all the
way.
 
It was a see-sawing ground play throughout, until the last quarter when the Vineyard pressed its way down to Nantucket’s 10 yard line and lost the ball on downs. Nantucket then took to the air and was successful in getting back to the Vineyard’s 35.

Battered Vineyard Team Makes Game Bid for Win

The game with Nantucket on Saturday turned out to be one of the roughest that the Martha’s Vineyard footballers have encountered. Judging by the number of injuries suffered by the Island boys, it was the roughest, with the principal Vineyard players seemingly one by one being removed from the game as the advantage irrevocably turned toward the Nantucketers, who finally defeated their visitors 33 to 20.
 
Coach Kelley’s men performed during the first half of the game with what has become their traditional good form, playing in swift pace and hard fought fashion.

Football Debut Is Eagerly Awaited

The debut of the first Vineyard football team, under the guidance of Coaches John Kelley, Daniel McCar­thy and Stanley Whitman, will take place tomorrow afternoon on the newly laid-out field at the Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven.
