Trailing by three goals at the end of the first period, a fast-skating Yardling hockey team rallied behind center Dave Abbot to defeat a scrappy Rindge Tech squad in an overtime game yesterday afternoon at the Boston Arena by a score of 4 to 3.
Abbot, an offensive standout throughout the game, broke the spell for the yearlings after they had fallen behind, 3 to 0, as he blasted a pass from Bob Almy past the Rindge goalkeeper after less than two minutes of the second period had gone by. With the school six on the defensive, the Crimson forwards increased the pressure, scoring again one and a half minutes later on Tom Lamb's goal.
In the wide-open third canto, Almy batted in a long shot from defenseman Al Key to tie the game with the only goal of the period. Then after 3:43 of the overtime Abbot came through with his winning second goal on a pass from Taber.
