'53 Ten Beats Mt. Hermon, 7-4; Baseball Team Tops Dummer, 5-2

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Attackman Bitsy Grant had another field day Saturday when he scored four goals and two assists while leading the freshman lacrosse team to a 7 to 4 victory over Mount Hermon on the Business School field.

After Grant had scored a solo goal to give the Yardlings an early lead, Mount Hermon's Timmy Craig tied the game with a goal at 13:24 of the first period. Win Carlough tallied at 14:52 of that period to put the prep school one point ahead.

The freshman team wasted many scoring chances until Norm Hatch converted a fine pass from Gus Palacios at 9:13 of the second period.

Then Grant broke loose. First, he bounced a screen shot past the Mount Hermon goalie at 11:47, and then set up Pete Franklin at 14:45. He scored twice more in the third period, once unassisted at 7:27, and again on a pass from Franklin at 13:27.

Governor Dummer's pitcher, Paul Samborski, son of Yardling baseball coach Dolph Samborski, did his best Saturday to beat his father's team. He allowed only four hits, and struck out 12. But the freshmen made the most of their limited opportunities and won, 5 to 2.

In a meeting after the game, the freshmen elected as captain Robert James Smith '53 of Millington, New Jersey, and Thayer Hall.

Samborski had speed, but lacked control. Two errors and a passed ball by the Governors' defense contributed to his downfall. Moreover, he walked 11 men. Fred Rhinelander and Scott Ricketson split the Yardling's pitching, with Ricketson getting the win.

Crimson Trails

Governor Dummer took the lead in the third, when Samborski drove in one run with a double. Another Dummer score in the fourth put the Crimson behind, 2 to 0.

John Canepa, freshman second baseman, opened the sixth inning with a single. John Collins drew a pass, and both men advanced on a wild pitch. Smith walked to fill the bases; Samborski then wild-pitched Canepa home. With Lou Arnow at bat, Collins scored on a passed ball. Arnow reached base on an error, and after two were out, started to steal second. Smith broke for the plate. While Arnow was trapped in a rundown, Smith scored.
