TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15,1957 THE tOGANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT. INDIANA. PAGE SEVEN And J-VV Win Over Rochester Elevens Freshman Club Triumph 27-6 J-V's Win 19-6 Flu Riddles Varsity Squad, Practice Called Off . The "Flu" bug struck in Logansport -high school Monday • and while it practically eliminated the varsity grid squad, enough Freshman and Junior Varsity players still were on.their feet and" the two younger teams played and won a double bill from Rochester's young Zebras at LHS Stadium last night. . . The Frosh team, showing plenty of power, even with reserves filling in the gaps, rambled to a 27-6 victory, their fifth in a row. The Junior Varsity, gaining momentum as the game went along, turned back the'Rochester J-V s 19-6. The win gave the Logan JV's a two won, two lost and one tied record for the seasoji. The local clubs wind up the campaign at Kokomo next Monday, night. The varsity squad of 25 players was hit so hard by sickness that'only nine of them were left for practice. They reported t» Coach Harvey Roberts but after a reviewing of last week's game and the upcoming contest with Jeff of Lafayette and a -few calls-, .thenics, Roberts dismissed the "We'll have w> wait another day or so to see how the boys are shaping up,, before we'll^know whether we can be able to play at all this week," Roberts said. ' The Berry Frosh started off fast using only four plays to score the first time they got the ball. "Jim Buck" Bender got the first tally on a Keeper play after he had set it up with a 35 yard scamper on a similar maneuver. He also booted the extra point. A recovered Rochester fumble led to a second TD 90 seconds later as Danny Farrell swept 34 yards to the goal. Bender again converted. 'The Berries got a third score at the start of the second ^period when Lawrence (Sweet- pea) Farrell rambled 39 yards to a ID Try for point was deflected. ' One TD Called Back Danny Farrell might have had a second TD except for a clipping penalty which" nullified a beautiful 69 yard run he made after squirming through tackle. In the third period the Logan yearlings struck again as Bender unBmbered has pitching arm .and threw a strike to end Paul Weiand for a 10-yard TD. after he had burled a s^arder to Danny Farrell to set it up. Bender ran for the extra point this time and the Frosh subs took over for the rest of the game. It VMS at this point that Rochester got-its tally, an.87-ya5d pass and run play, the aerial going from Mike MSdntyre, the quarterback, to left halfback Dale Schroder, who did a nice 'job of outrunning ihe Berry secondary to'the goal. Try for,point failed and that was it as neither team .was able to score again, although .the Logan subs got to the three .yard line before time rani out in the finail ght halfback, took the kickoff n his own 12-yard line, shot down he sidelines and ran 88 yards to second TD. Rochester fought back gamely nd despite two 15-yard penalties drove 87 yards to - their only ,TD, ompletirig two passes en route, enny Hayden got the 6-<pointer or the Zebras but the ball car- er on the try for point was oiowed under. • Then in the fourth period the erries drove from midfield' to core with Leon Nichols going ie last two yards for the TD. ender, the Berries Frosh quar- erback, was called in.and kicked ie extra point. • Then as Rochester took to the air n hte last three minutes, Bender ntercepted an aerial and raced -back' 41 yards tot he Rochester 9 before he was halted. The Zeb- as never threatened again. Summary: , Logan Frosh 14 6 7 I*—27 Rochester 0 0 6 (•— 6 T.D., (L) Bender, D. Farrell, L? arr&U, Weiand; (R) Schroder. P.A.T. (L) Bender 3.
