PHOENIXVILLE SUBDUES POTTSTOWN HIGH, 33-0 Sports Scene • * * —By— PAUL J. LUCAS Linfield’* Comeback I COMEBACK that was a come- A back was Linfield AA’s spurt in the second half of its 1940 baseball campaign. According to the veteran George ‘'Punch" Berkey, who retires from the game at the conclusion of each season, and then dons the uniform again the following July. Linfield's record was 28 wins, 18 defeats and four ties. That’s not too bad, and it’s not too good. Feature of Linfield’s play was in it« final 19 games, when it gained the upper hand in 17 tilts, losing but two. The down-river sluggers ran up a 12-game winning streak before losing to Manager Joe Pan­ file’s Engelsville AC, and then took it on the chin again at the hands of Liberty Fire company, in the T^'in-Borough Twilight league playoffs. But Manager Pat Carl’s Linfield club defeated Liberty in the series to win the circuit championship. Defeats were forgotten when the Linfield bunch, 25 strong, banqueted Friday night at Green Gables. Particularly the no-hit, no-run reverse handed it by Big Johnny Hutman, St. Michael’s, Phoenixville pitcher. * * * Football Rules R alph wentzel, pottstown High quarterback, threw a forward pass that was intercepted by Phoenixville’s Steve Basca in Phoenixville’s end zone during the Trojans-Phantoms game Saturday at Franklin field. A Trojan tackled Basca as soon as the latter caught the inflated pigskin, and officials ruled it an automatic touchback. That’s high school rules for you. But at Philadelphia’s Franklin field Saturday the writer watched Gene Davis, Pennsylvania halfback, intercept a Princeton aerial behind his owr. goal line. Davis war dropped when he had the ball in his hands . . . and guess what? It was ruled an automatic safety and Davis scored two points for Princeton. That’s the intercollegiate version of the play. Defeated Pottstown, however, didn’t need those two points to win (?) while the Fighting Quakers were ahead by a comfortable margin to afford giving the Tigers two points without batting an eyelash. • * * Plenty of Action R OLLER SKATE hockey is a great game , . .to watch. But if your insurance is paid to date, and your shin bones aren’t too brittle, it's all right to take a chance and try it as a competitor. The way those hockey sticks were flying yesterday afternoon at Ringing Rocks pavilion reminded one of a hill-billy feud, except the hill-billies used shootin* irons. It was our first glimpse of roller hockey, watching Manager Wolf’s Bears beat Croydon, 4-2, in a Penn- Jersey league match. At least one, if not more, window panes at the Ringing Rocks' establishment, were broken by a flying puck during the melee. The Bears must have something on the ball because they extended their two-year winning streak to 22 Th*y finished 1939-40 with a string of 19 wins, and this season have chalked up three Penn-Jersey triumphs. * * * Kuhrt Speaks Up K UHRT WIEN EKE had one thing in his mind Friday night and that was a victory for his Phoenixville High eleven over Pottstown High Saturday, which is just exactly what happened. Still, Wieneke couldn’t help but express his regret for G. B. ‘‘Dutch” Slagle, Pottstown’s head coach, and the latter’s predicament with the Trojans. “We coaches in the Philadelphia Suburban Conference are rooting for “Dutch” despite the fact eight lettermen quit his squad,” Kuhrt told the writer Friday night. We agree it is a sorry state of football affairs at Pottstown High, what with so many able gridders sitting in the stands instead of wearing the Blue and White’s colors in action. This year was supposed to be the one for Pottstown against both Norristown and Phoenixville. The Trojans never have defeated the Eagles, and haven’t won from Phoenixville since 1928. But vhat can a coach do if the nucleus of a potential winning team quits before the first game and leaves the coach with nothing but inexperienced material? Nothing except to take it on the chin and hope for something better in 1941. Midget Auto Race Card Is Postponed A wet track caused by the week end snow, postponed the weekly Sanatoga Speedway tiidget auto racing program yesterday afternoon.

Geri to Mike Labik. put the ball on the five-yard line. After Pat Conners carried the ball a half-yard from Pottstown had to wait till mid-way in the third quarter before it could penetrate enemy territory on offense. This occurred when Wentzel, standing on his own 25, heaved a long forward pass to right end Lin Edleman who speared the ball on the 50-yard stripe and was tackled on Phoenixville’s 45.

Another break, a partially blocked punt, set up Phoenixville’s third touchdown mid-way in the second stanza. Quarterback Ralph Wentzel, after the Trojans last 17 yards on two plays, faded back to his own ten to punt. Two Phoenixville linemen broke through and partially blocked the kick. The pigskin shot high into the air and spun upheld ten yards to the 20 where Basca grabbed it. He immediately raced for the sidelines and when he was tackled, a half yard shy of a touchdown. Two plays later Geri .-cored his third and final touchdown as he hit pay-dirt, going through right tackle. Basca converted extra point. The half ended with Pottstown on the short end oi a 20-0 score. Bill Zach intercepted Wentzel’s forward pass on Pottstown’s 35, in a Pottstown team has given in recent years. Brilliant passing by Wentzel and difficult catcher by Edleman, A1 Panfile, George Keller and Paul “Muzzy” Olock stunned the capac- lt. gathering and made the Trojans a potential threat, but all this happened too late for t^he Trojans to get back into the ball game. Constant penalties, mostly due to backfield in motion, ruined many Trojan chances of scoring after going down-field via the air-route. One Wentzel pass was caught over the goal line by Panfile, but both teams were off-side on the play. Coach Slagle's fighting gridmen continued their passing attack until they reached Phoenixville’s 15- yard stripe. Then again Pottstown’s chances were ruined when Wentzel’s forward was caught over the goal line by Basca for an automatic touchback, when he was tackled by Olock. Despite the fact Pottstown lost, the spirited Trojans were backed up tremendously by the number of students and team followers in the stands. The 33-0 count rung up by the Phantoms was the biggest score Phoenixville has rolled up against Pottstown. This was the 28th meeting between the two rivals. Not Since 1928 when Coach Carroll I). “Mush” Bechtel's Blue and White team defeated the Phantom’s 14-0, has a Pottstown team emerged victorious. Both school bands [furnished music before the game and at intermission. Andrew Freeh led the Pottstown band. Helen Jones was Elmer F Moyer. 66 Beech street, proved his recent first-place victory in The Mercury grid-guessing contest wasn’t a fluke when he picked 11 winners in the past week-end’s contest to gain the top prize a second time this season. But the Beech street resident didn’t have an easy time, because two other rivals also selected 11 winners. These two were Henry R, II e i n t z, Perkiomenville, and Wesley Nichols, 510!-.» King street, Moyer’s scores were closer to the actual figures than bis competitors, so in the final analysis he gained the nod. By coincidence, each of the three missed out on the same two games, a 6-6 stalemate between Army and Harvard, and the scoreless deadlock waged by Western Maryland and Bucknell Friday night. Each of the 58 contestants went down on these games. Heintz proved he had something when he prophecized Duke s 13-0 victory .over Colgate by the actual tally. Everyone except Bertram Tinney, 614 North Evans street, went overboard with Phoenixville High over Pottstown High, and since the Trojans didn’t have a chance against Phoenixville, Tinney was the loser.

Oct. 20 (/Ph -‘The ever-reliable Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears emerged from another one of the National Football league's all-around aerial circuses today as the two favorites for divisional honors. With Sammy Baugh passing for three touchdowns, the Washington Redskins overwhelmed the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-17, and remained unbeaten at the head of the Eastern class. The Chicago Bears had to go “all-out” to conquer the sturdy Brooklyn Dodgers, 16 - 7, but there was no question of their s u perior- ity. With four In a thrill-packed match that had games won and the 300 fans on edge durmg the a single one three rough and tumble periods of lost, the Bears Play. Ringing Rocks Bears turned held onto the back Croyden. 4-2. in a Penn-Jersey Roller Hockey league fracas yesterday at Ringing Rocks pavilion. Manager Walt Wolf’s Bears extended their two-year winning streak to 22 games, and took undisputed possession of first place in league standings. The Bears closed their 1939-40 campaign with a 19-game victory streak. They have won three league games this season. Croyden started out strong, intent on giving Ringing Rocks its first defeat. Bowes knocked in one past Goalie Halteman during the first three minutes of action, but Red Crater retaliated several moments later to tie the score. Carl Young gave the B^ars the lead. 2-1, when he made a spectacular shot in the second period. Bud Groff also found the range In the second period for the Bears. The visitors weren’t through, however, and when Keene scored for Croyden in the third period, the Bears’ advantage had melted to 3-2. Crater put the game on ice with a point in closing minutes. Two games are booked for the Bears this week-end. Saturday they travel to New Brunswick, N. J . for a league encounter, while Sunday Atlantic City will be here for an exhibition.

The Bears then switched 011 their ground power for an 81 -yard touchdown march and Bob Snyder booted a 47 -yard field goal. In the wild Green Bay-Detroit doings, passes either set up or scored every touchdown, not always in the right direction though, because Detroit capitalized on two interceptions.
