Harvard rolls past Yale in JV game

It was not the best of starts to the football portion of The Game festivities as Yale lost 37-6 to Harvard in the junior varsity version of the game.

A bad snap on a punt, interception and fumble led to three of Harvard's four touchdowns.

Henry Furman played the entire game at quarterback and passed for 120 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Grant Wallace for Yale’s only points.

Russell Perkins led Yale with five catches for 41 yards while Wynston Bouknight carried the ball nine times for 37 yards.

Defensively, Kolu Buck had a team-high 10 tackles.

Tyler Caveness had scoring runs of 5 and 29 yards while Tyler Hamblin ran for one score and passed for another for Harvard.

There was a scary moment with 3:12 left in the third quarter as freshman linebacker Everett Johnson collided with Harvard quarterback Cory Briggs. Johnson laid motionless on the Yale sideline for an extended period while he was attended to by medical personnel. The good news was that Johnson was later seen on the sideline chatting with teammates.
