Defeat Drops Eleven Out of Sight In Weekly Ivy League Statistics
Not a single Harvard player is among the top six Ivy Leaguers in rushing, forward passing, total offense, pass receiving, scoring, or punting according to statistics released by the league yesterday. Harvard is the only team not represented in any statistical department.
Halfback John Dockery, who had been ranked in pass receiving, and place-kicker Maury Dulles, who was among the scoring leaders, dropped out of sight after last week's 42-0 load to Dartmouth.
The Crimson's team defense, which had been second in the league, dropped to fifth. The team has now given up an average of 222.7. Yards in three Ivy games.
The Harvard offense remained mired in seventh place with an average of 137.7 yards a game. The team is sixth in rushing yardage and last in passing.
The Crimson also holds down last place in team punting, with an average of 31.3 yards per kick.
Pennsylvania, Harvard's opponent this weekend, has turned in an even more consistent performance. The Quakers are last in defense, yielding an average of 355.7 yards per game, and last in offense, with a 121.3. Yard average. Only punter Bruce Molloy (39.0) represents the Quakers in the individual statistics.
Yale quarterback Ed McCarthy is the league leader in total offense with 454 yards. Jim Dunda of Brown is the leading passer, with 33 completions, and Bob Kenney of Yale and John Parry of Brown lead the pass receivers with 12 catches. Cosmo Incavassi of Princeton is tope in both rushing (263 yards) and scoring (30 points).
