The Lowell House football squad scored its first triumph of the '49 season yesterday when it came from behind to overpower a hapless Dunster eleven, 19 to 6. It was the Funsters' fourth straight defeat.
At the same time, Leverett scored its second victory of the year, edging Dudley, 9 to 6.
The Funsters led Lowell at the half. A fumble by the Bell Boys on their own 30, recovered by Dunster, set up a pass play from fullback Jim Dumas to George Donahue for the first score. Shortly afterwards, Dumas blocked a Lowell kick, and the ball rolled out of bounds in the end zone for an automatic safety.
In the second period, a sustained drive by the Bellboys ended in a score when left halfback Bob Dunean bulled over from the 5 yard line.
Lowell took the lead in the third quarter when alort left end Gil Martin fell on a Dunster fumble on the kick-off and Irv Karassik made the recovery count with a 40-yard run for a touchdown.
After a 30-yard broken-field run by Brooks Wilder in the final quarter, Bob Woodruff passed to Mike Post for Lowcll's clinching counter.
Dunster filled the air with unsuccessful desperation passes in the second half. In contrast, Lowell passed only twice in the game, once for their touchdown.
Leverett Given Safety
All the scoring in the Dudley-Leverett contest came in the first half. Leverett got two points on a safety early in the game on a Commuter fourth-down fumble.
At the end of the first period Dudley went ahead on a sustained drive climaxed by a delayed pass from halfback Dave Gilbert to Bill Montieth. In the second quarter a pass from Leverett fullback Fabian Bradbury to Jerry Gallo put the Bunnies deep in Dudley territory, and Jim Wykoff bucked 15 yards for the winning touchdown. Gallo converted.
The Commuters showed more power in the line in the second half, but their passing failed to click. Near the end of the game Dudley got down to the Leverett 7 yard-line, but lost the ball on downs. The Bunnies kicked out to the 40 and held for the rest of the game.
In touch football yesterday, Kirkland whitewashed Adams 13 to 0, and Winthrop bowed to Dudley in a wild game, 24 to 18.
