Leverett Eleven Tops Dunster, 7-6; Winthrop Retains First Place Lead

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Leverett snapped a second place tie with Dunster by defeating the Funsters in a thrilling 7 to 6 House football game today. Meanwhile, the first place Puritans easily downed Kirkland, 26 to 0, sinking the Deacons into sixth place in the House League.

The Bunnies' victory, their fourth in five games, was well earned. In the first period, Dunsters' Bob Smith intercepted a pass thrown by Bucky O'Connor on the Dunster one-yard line, and went 99 yards for a touchdown.

After this score, the Leverett defense kept hard-running Funster backs in check, while Leverett backs Sam Paschal, Lee Chandler, and Sandy Batchelder picked up considerable yardage. Late in the third period, this trio of runners drove 50 yards to the Dunster 30. From there, O'Connor connected with a 30-yard touchdown pass to end Lowell Sachnoff, tying the score at 6 to 6. On a quarterback sneak, O'Connor plunged over the goal line for the extra point and the deciding one in the contest.

Winthrop quarterback Walt Greeley was the deciding factor in the 26 to 0 Puritan victory. He completed five out of nine passes for 210 yards, and three of his aerials produced touchdowns.
