Crimson Rugby Wins in Bermuda
The Harvard Rugby Club added two games to its victory skein in Bermuda last week, and came away the winner of the Inter-Collegiate Rugby Competition. After an exhibition loss to the Royal Canadian Navy team, the Crimson downed M.I.T. and Amherst to win the title.
The Canadian Navy won 3-0 as Ken Batchelor, a veteran of the Canadian profootball league, scored the only touchdown.
Against the less seasoned players of M.I.T., Harvard pushed over three touch downs and made a conversion, winning 11-0. The "three-quarters" or backs were spectacular. Ted Frembgen put Harvard into the lead in the second half, and Langy Kavaliku, Harvard's outstanding player, followed with two thirty yard touchdown runs, one on a pass from Hal Churchill. Graham Russell kicked the conversion. Getting excellent play from its relatively inexperienced forwards, Hank Keohane in particular, the Crimson edged Amherst in the final round, 3-0. Dave Holmes produced the winning tally on a 25 yard run. Capt. Churchill felt that, though most of the players were new to the game, the team has "good potential."
A team from Montreal will play the Crimson here Saturday.
