Ivy League Elevens Take Their Lumps in Non-Conference Gridiron Openers

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

After a painful weekend against outside opposition, exactly half of the Ivy League is wishing it had never ventured beyond the league's inceatuous schedule.

Although the league favorites--Harvard, Dartmouth, and Princeton--all mangled their opponents with relative ease, the second division underwent history-making embarrassment.

Connecticut provided the biggest shock, upsetting Yale 13-6 and breaking the Elis' perfect record against teams in the state that stretched back to 1875.

The Huskies, possessing only one player over 200 pounds, overcame a fourth quarter Yale lead with a field and a 35-yard touchdown on an intercepted pass.

In a game that was ominous for Harvard's Ivy title plans, Princeton pounded Rutgers 33-6. The Tigers' Charlie Gogolak kicked an even half-dozen field goals, including one 52-yarder, and the Iacavassi-less Princeton running attack still churned out 210 yards.

Dartmouth Romps

Dartmouth performed its usual surgery on New Hampahire, running up the second largest score in its history with a 56-6 win. Indian quarterback Gene Ryzewicz ran for one touchdown, passed for another, and returned a punt for a third.

But the other Ivy teams should never have bothered to play. Lafayette, without a win in its last 14 games, broke the string by beating Columbia 14-10. Archie Roberts' replacement, sophomore John Burns, completed only two of 13 passes.

Rhode Island, which had punished Harvard in a pre-season scrimmage, beat Brown 14-6. Cornell, rated by some as an outside contender for the Ivy championship, played rugged Colgate to a 0-0 tie.

Only lowly Penn supplied a little encouragement for Ivy League chauvinists by downing Lehigh 20-14, largely on the running of Bruce Molloy.
