Alegi cut off tackle to the 11 for a first down, but two cracks at the line and two passes failed to net any gain and Seymour took over. A 15 yard penalty against the home clu-b, inflicted from the 20, put thorn back on the five and they elected to kick. The boot by Dahn in the end zone was blocked but fullback Charlie Galiuzza picked it up and raced out to the nine. Dahn then kicked out to the Seymour 40 where the Garnet and Grey took over. Sophomore substitute back Jimmy McCann then came in and threw a beautiful pass to end Jack Carroll who gathered it in on the 20 and with the aid of a beautiful block ,by sub end Dick Monaghan, romped' over for an apparent touchdown. The play was called back however, when a Naugatuck Player was detected holding on 'the Seymour 45 and the locals were penalized 'back to their 40.

His try for the extra point by plunging was ctopped short, on the two.

The game ended two plays later with the locate in possession at midfleld. Alegi was undoubtedly the most valuable player of the day. He carried the ball 13 times from scrimmage and picked 1 up 109 yards an average of better than eight per try. In addition. He was the buV wark of strength on defense, time and time ag-ain coming in from his backer-up spot to spill Seymour bactoi on or behind the line of scrimmage.
