Ivy Roundup: Lions, Bruins Jell; Dartmouth 3-0

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Ivy League divided up its third weekend of football with half the teams playing within the conference and the other half experimenting with various non-conference opponents. As is usually the case this time of year, the results were pretty predictable.

But not without excitement. Witness the contest down in Providence between Brown and Princeton. The Bruins, pre-season bigwigs in every poll, had to scramble and claw their way to their first Ivy victory of the season, a 10-7 nudging of the Tigers.

Trailing 7-0 in the defensive-minded game with less than six minutes remaining, the Brown offense awoke from hibernation with a 42-yard Ruben Chapa field goal to pull within four.

An upset-minded Tiger defense had swarmed over Brown quarterback Mark Whipple for six sacks until Whipple dismantled them permanently on two plays with less than two minutes remaining.

A 38-yard pass to flanker Charlie Watkins set up Whipple's winning one-yard plunge with 52 seconds left. Brown's record is now 1-1 while Princeton stands at 0-2.

Columbia also evened its Ivy record and silenced joke-makers for at least another week, with an impressive win over Pennsylvania, 30-18. It was the second win in a row for the Lions, likewise the second successive setback for the Quakers.

First half Penn leads of 6-0 and 12-7 were banished by a 48-yard halfback option pass and safety for Columbia's 16-12 halftime lead. Two fourth-quarter touchdowns put the game in the Lion's den for good.

In inter-conference action Ivy grid squads could only manage one win in four, that coming on Dartmouth's 38-0 icing of hockey-minded Boston University.

The Woodsmen kept their record perfect at 3-0 while scoring in every stanza against the hapless Terriers.

Yale's attempt to play big-time football resulted in its ten-game winning streak being snapped, 28-14, at the hands of Miami of Ohio. Two first-half touchdowns by John Pagliaro and a 92-yard rushing day by running mate Rich Angelone were highlights offset by two fourth-quarter touchdowns by Miami.

Cornell left coach Bob Blackman still looking for its first win, as Rutgers left the Big Red black and blue in a 30-14 thrashing. Rutgers' 397 yards on the ground was the key factor in the rainy contest.

And we all know what happened to Harvard.
