The Elephants scored early in the first quarter when Dunster, held on ts own 20, was forced to kick John MacNamara, former jayee back, took the punt on hs own 40, and, behind alert blocking, ran all the way to score. The kick was good.
In the third quarter Eliot tallied twice. Riley Gilbert, aided by a mass of blockers, broke around end to score from the Dunster 40. Later, Charlie Cabot threw a 30 yard pass to Myles Herter in the end zone. In the last period, Eliot got a first down on the Funster four yard line, but the Dunster line, upheld by Ed Cohen, "Deke" do Coon and Greg Collegan, stopped the threat on the one.
