Crimson Beat H.C. 13-6 in Last Meeting

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rallying after an opening-play score by Holy Cross fullback Tom Hennessey, an experienced Harvard team, piloted by Charlie Ravenel, defeated the Crusaders 13-6, in the opener of the 1960 season. The series was interrupted last year.

Hennessey, who will play today, grabbed the bouncing kick-off on his own 15 yard line and sped untouched down the center of the gridiron for the Crusader's only tally.

The Crimson recovered quickly. Midway in the first period half back Hobie Armstrong scored on a 29 yard run through the middle of the Crusader line. But the score was called back because of an offside penalty. Nine plays later Ravenel threw a pass to end Bert Mesenbaugh, who stepped over the line for six points. A conversion by Dave Ward put the Crimson ahead 7-6.

Harvard scored its second touchdown late in the third period when the second unit drove 80 yards in 13 plays. Ravenel plunged into a goal-line pile up for the six points.

Holy Cross threatened mildly on the following kickoff as Hennessey received the ball on his goal line and charged to the 50 yard line. There he was literally upended by half-back Tom Boone.
