Dickinson's Second Home Game is Their Last as They Pick Up Their First Win vs. Gettysburg

Thu., Nov. 17, 1892

In only their second, and final, home game of the season, Dickinson picked up their first and only win of the 1892 season. Even this outcome was disputed, however, as Gettysburg believed their to have been non-Dickinson students who played in the game. The Gettysburg school paper claimed "included on the Dickinson team was a Gettysburg butcher, a Hanover sport, a Carlisle Indian, and other foreign matter." Regardless, Dickinson pulled out a 14-0 victory.
