The Puritans had two other scoring chances. Near the end of the first half, Hernberg tossed a long pass that was intercepted by Dunster's Tom Butler. In the last period after Winthrop's John St. Phalle ran the ball to midfield from deep in his own territory, Gene Bekun broke away and got as far as the five yard line, where he fumbled.

Defense Wears Down
