Soccer Team Nips Favored Quakers, 3-2

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two near-perfect corner kicks and a long shot gave the soccer team a 3 to 2 win from a favored Haveford eleven Saturday. The Crimson came from behind twice to win the home contest, its second of the season.

The winning goal came at 4:10 of the last period when right inside Charlie Weiss cut out to wing, fooled the opposing fullback, and got off a boot to hit the far corner of Haveford's goal.

Scoring in the first quarter started when quarter John Woll tapped in a rebound following a nice save by goalie Dick Craven. The neat pass work leading up to this goal stood out in a very erratic first half. Both teams had trouble settling down, and most of their passes had too such steam, giving the game a "hit and run" character.

The Crimson's wings teamed to tie the score late in the period when Latsi Berger headed in Berk Johnson's corner kick. The remaining minutes of the quarter saw both teams playing sharp ball, but neither was able to score.

The second period was marked by long booting and a lot of running with neither goalie having difficult chance. The half ended with score still tied, 1 to 1.

Haverford regained the lead early in the third quarter when Paul Shipley beat Craven from in close. Late in the period Captain Ted Wolf's corner kick put the home team even, as Bruce Munro's strategy of moving Wolf to the outside from his customary position at center forward paid off.

This goal was the fifth of the season for the Crimson and the fifth scored by a wing. In all, the team played well in what Munro termed "a good test," making up in scrappiness what it lacked in finesse.
