No football foe? That's not cricket


WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) - When The College of Wooster's opponent dropped out of the homecoming game, it just wasn't cricket.

But that gave the Fighting Scots an idea.

After Earlham withdrew from Saturday's football game because it joined a different conference, Wooster officials huddled to come up with an alternative. They decided on a cricket exhibition.

A group of local players who learned the game in their native countries will take on the college's club team.

The mayor and the president of the college are planning to be there Saturday afternoon for the ceremonial first ball.
