PACE 6—NAUOATUCK NEWS (CONN.). MONDAY, OCT. M, 1949 Ivy Scores In Final Seconds To Tie Garnet, 7-7 Naugatuck Outplays Favored Opponents For Three Periods 44-Yard Screen Pass Prevents Apparent Victory A semen pass which went lor 44-yards and a touchdown in the dying seconds of the game, snatched an apparent victory from the hands of the Naugatuck High school Greyhounds and gave Crosby a 7-7 tie Saturday afternoon at Municipal Stadium, Waterbury. Th« locals were leading 7-0 with leas than 30 seconds left when Tom Araico faded' back to midlleld and tossed a screen pass to full- bj|ck George Blair on the Naug'a- tufk 44. Blair, behind fine interference and with in exhibition of beautiful broken field running, shook off four would-be Naugatuck tacklers and went all the way for the score. End Bill Fishang kicked tl>e extra point to give Crosby the tying point. On Defensive ..The Greyhound! had kept their fclgffer—and heaviSjy favored opponents—on the defensive for better than three periods. They went out in front, 7-0, less than two minutes before the half on a 26- yard touchdown pass from fullback Bob "Red" Whitv to end Jack Carroll. Carroll took the ball over his shoulder on the four-yard line and stepped over. -Charlie Alegi booted the extra point. Naugatujk missed a touchdown in the first and another in tha second quarter. They took over oh the Crosoy 15 soon after the game started, when the Ivy was forced to kick from its 20. Bob Rabto picked up eight yarcls" in. threp tries and then Alan Crosswait hit end Bill Mate; with a pass on the 28 for a first down. After one running play was stopped for no gain, Rabtoy scampered to the 18 for another first down. White carried to the 11 on first down and then Charlie Alegi went to the five. That plav was called back, however, when a Maugatuck back was detected illegally in motion, and the Greyhounds were penalized flvo yards to the 16 .Alegi carried back to the 12, but two more running plays were stopped and Crosby took over. The Ivy drove to the Nuu^atuck 44-yard line as the quarter end^d, sparked by a 26-yard run by Amico. On the first plav of the second quarter Naugatuck took over, when Blair, in attempting to pass, was dropped on his own 39 He fumbled and Naugatuck recovered. Rebtoy Sparks Drive With Rabtoy again sparking the drive, the local; drove for three successive first downs, the last coming on the three-yard line. Rabtoy went to the one on first down, but a mixup in a handon" resulted in Alegi being droplped on tbe four. Another running -play n*tted no gain, then, on last down. Rabtoy passed to Bill Matos in the ead zone. Bill was hit .-us he o«ught the ball, and it squirted out of his arms. AJegi pounced on the oval, but the referee ruled that Matos had not held it long enough and" that it had hit the ground he- fore Alegi recovered, so, Crosby took over on its five. Fishang kicked out to the 32 and Alan Crosswait returned it to the 25. Rabtoy, White and Crosswait alternated for a firn down on the 14, but then Joe Caulfield intercepted a pass on the goal line, ^"1'iTie *.he drive. He returned the ball to the 2O, but Crosby was penalized to the two when detected clipping. Fishancr again booted out and Naugatuck took over on the 29 with time running out in the half. A flat pass from White to Crosswait was good to the 26 and after another pass went incomplete, Rabtoy hit Carroll for the touchdown. Crosby almost managed to score in the final seconds of the half, when Blair took a screen pass on hi» 35 and raced to the Naugatuck 20 where Boh SePnske. the last Naugy defender, finally brought him down. Fumbles Hurt Fumbles hurt both teams in the third quarter. Naugatuck drove into Crosby territory early in the per- iog, "but lost the ball when Car- roll, after catching a pass from Rabtoy, fnmbled on the 31 after being tackled. Crosby came back to drive to the Naugatuck 44, where a fumble in their backfield put them back to their own 45. They were unable to -make up the difference and were forced to punt. Neither team was able 10 gain after that and the period ended with Naugatuck in possession on its 33. Shortly after the final period opened. Crosby took over on its 48. The Ivy drove to the Naugatuck 25 where <\ holding penalty halted the drive. Unable to gain, Naugatuck kicked out. The ball hit on the Crosby 30 and bounced back towards midfield, finally being downed on the Crosby 45. Crosby drove to the Naugatuck 33, where Amico fumbled and Naugatuck took over. Quick-Kick With less than a minute to go, Croswait quick -kicked on third down. The ball sailed all the way to the Crosby 10 where Caulfield picked it up and returned it to the 24. Two completed passes gave the Ivy a first down on Naugatuck's 44 fronr where Blair took off on his touchdown run. Crosby kicked off to Naugatuck with only 13 seconds left to play. Rabtoy took the kick on the Naugatuck 10 yard line and raced back to the Crosby 45 before being brought down, just as the game ended. One more block and Rabtoy would have gone all the way for the score. The locals, who had gone into the game two to three touchdown underdogs, gave a good account of themselves, completely outplaying Crosby for more than three periods. The game goes down in the records as a 7-7 tie, but in more than one way it was a victory for Naugatucsk. They gave evidence that their next four opponents "will be in for four 'very rough afternoons. Alegi Hurt Naugatuck was hurt by the fact that Alegi sustained a bad charlie horse on his right leg early in the game. Charlie played most of the game, but was unable to run as he is capable. Also out of action with a Charlie horse was Bryant Kirkendall, second string quarterback. Crosby had the edge in first downs, 10-7, but six of those came in the final quarter and all but the two made on the touchdown drive were wasted. Naugatuck tried nine passes, completing six, were penalized 30 yards, and fumbled twice. One fumble was recovered by Crosby. The Ivy tried 10 passes, completing five and intercepled one Naugatuck toss. They lost 45 yards on penalties and fumbled four times, with Naugatuck recovering two. Naugatuck now has a record of two ties and three losses for the season. Crosby's record is three wins, one loss and one tie. Rabtoy, with Alegi unable to run, was the sparkplug of the Gar-: net team, piling up considerable yardage through the line and more by his passes. The Nugatuck line, to a man, also played well. .
