PHILADELPHIA PROFESSIONALS

Beat Conshohoken, 6 to 0, in First Game of the Season.

The Philadelphia football team played its first game of the season yesterday, defeating the strong Conshohoken team by the score of 6 to 0. Captain Wallace's team far outclassed the "Tigers" individually, but the ex-collegian[s] showed a lack of tem work and physical condition.

The Conshohocken team was strengthened by the addition of Offenheimer, a former star tackle of Pennsylvania, who is now playing for P. R. R. He was playing against Wallace, but was no match for the big blonde, who played in his old-time form.

The Conshohoken team only made the necessary five yards three times, while the Philadelphia team gained at will. Only two fifteen minute halves were played. Wallace, Roller and Washburn did the best work for Philadelphia, while Rambo and Houck were the stars of the Conshohoken team.
