Leverett Eleven Will Battle Eliot In Crucial Game
The Leverett House football team will take on Eliot's preppies in the game of the season this afternoon, with both squads sporting undefeated records and high hopes for the House championship. Game time is 2:15 p.m., on the intramural fields.
The men is watch in the Leverett backfield are Buddy Lynch, Bob Kergman, and Mike Hardesty, a 210 fullback who more than any other single player has built Leverett, from the winlead team of 1900 into this fall's title contender. Last year, Hardesty and quarterback Lynch missed the championship by inches, when in a crucial late season game against Quincy House they were unable to score with a fullback drive from a few inches out. This afternoon, they aim to make the touchdown.
But against Leverett, Eliot will be using the high-calibre backfield quartet of Pete Wood, Andy Shee, Kieth Striggow, and Gavin Gilmor. All played top-fight ball in secondary school, and between them they represent Harvard varsity, JV, and freshman teams in several different sports.
