Sophomores Expected to Bolster 1957 Crimson Soccer Strength

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Overconfidence will not be a problem for the 1957 soccer team. There will be little temptation to rest on the oars that pulled it to only three victories out of 11 games last season after the team had won the Big Three and New England Championships in 1955.

And though, as coach Bruce Munro says, "you can never tell about sophomores until you see them in a game," the squad looks to its recruits from last year's strong and successful freshman team to bolster the attack that was so often found wanting last season.

Ten returning lettermen, headed by captain Jim Shue, give Munro a solid nucleus of experience from which to build, but the coach expects that several gaps in his starting lineup will be plugged by sophomores when the team opens against Tufts next Wednesday.

Last year's top-scoring freshmen--John Mudd and John Hedreen, now side-lined with a pulled muscle--are both strong contenders for a starting position in the forward line. Veterans Tom Bernheim, Ken McIntosh, Robin Magowan, and Shue will probably make up the rest of the starting line.

Jon Felstiner and Tony Oberschall will return to their old stands as half-backs. The key third man at that position will probably be either Marshall Schwarz, who saw a good deal of action last fall, or Bill Rapp, another promising sophomore.

At fullback, Floyd Molloy, a returning member of the 1955 freshman team, may repair one of the ugliest holes in the lineup, left by the loss of Don Beaver, who won honorable mention on last year's all-Ivy team.

The task of tending the Harvard nets is right now a toss-up between sophomore Tom Bagnoli and Jim Perkins, who has the advantage of experience.
