No one cares, apparently.

Back in those days, only goals counted in rugby.  A try only gave you an attempt to make what's now called a conversion (hence the name try).  Goals counted at one apiece so Yale won by two goals to zero.

What's not stated is whether those goals were drop goals, penalties, or conversions...they all counted one apiece though.
