Scores 24 Points in First Period Against Parkside of Camden

The Holmesburg Athletic Club's foot ball team completely outclassed the Parkside team, of Camden, in their game at Crystal Ball Park, Holmesburg, this afternoon.

Holmesburg was ahead by a score of 24 to 0 at the end of the first period, and they score two more touchdowns at the start of the second.

Kelly, well known as a champion oarsman, playing left end for Holmesburg, went over for all three of the touchdowns in the first period. Knauer, quarterback, made a brilliant run of 55 yards.

The start of the game was delayed by the failure of the Parkside team to arrive promptly, some of the players thinking that they were to play at Norristown. In the meantime the spectators were entertained by a scrub game between Holmesburg's second team and the Clearfield eleven.
