Eliot passed its way to a 27 to 0 lopsided victory over Lowell in House football yesterday, while Adams eked out a 6 to 0 victory over Dunster with less than three minutes left to play in the fourth quarter. Kirkland defeated Winthrop in House soccer, 2 to 0.
The Elephants, despite the score, played a sloppy and uneven game. With a first down and goal to go in the first period they were stopped by a fighting Lowell defense, which capitalized on Eliot's poor blocking. A few seconds later, however, Eliot nabbed a safety on a Lowell fumble.
The Bellboys were unable to stop Eliot's fast backfield or Steve Kursman's passing. With less than 20 seconds left in the first half Kurzman passed to Bill Gray for six points. Eliot ran the ball to make it seven.
In the first play of the third quarter Freddy Rhinelander broke through the left side of the Bellboy line for a 75-yard touchdown. Eliot failed to make the extra point. Kurzman passed to Rhinelander in the fourth quarter, and later ran for two scores himself when he couldn't find a receiver, making the final tally, 27 to 0.
Dunster held Adams in a defensive game where Adams generally tipped the offensive balance but was unable to score. Adams scored late in the fourth quarter on a Dunster fumble deep in Funster territory. Jack King made the Adams touchdown on a sweep around right with less than three minutes to play in the game.
Craig Jennings and Dick Armstrong both scored in the first half of the Kirkland-Winthrop soccer game to give Kirkland its 2 to 0 victory.
Dunster plays Adams in soccer today at 3:15 at the House soccer fields.
