lt seems like only yesterday that we saw our football team fight hard but, alas, go down in de- feat. Davis lost the first game with Mamaroneck 3l -O. The following week also defeat followed the jinxed Davisites, and we succumbed to Roosevelt l2-6. The one thing that will always be remembered with joy and pride was the battle with Gorton, trailing 6-O in the second half the Hilltoppers came back to win l2-6. To start the Davisites rolling, Angelo Carideo intercepted a Gorton pass in our own end zone, and they just couldn't stop him until he reached the Davis 33 yard line. On the next play Bobby Violino got off to a 45 yard gain. Later, a pass from Carideo to lack Schroeder and another thrilling run by Violino cupped the game. The following week, however, spelled defeat. when Yonkers beat us 7-6. The Pelham game started off with a bang. On the first two plays of the tilt, our opponent got touchdowns, both of which were nullified by penalties. Even this didn't save the Hilltoppers and again we lost 7-6. The game with Port Chester was the most excit- ing tussle of the season. On the first play of the second half, Lou Hackett smashed through right tackle and streaked 75 yards to a touchdown. Port Chester then came back with a fifty-two and then an eighty yard march to go into the lead. Later, with the ball on the Davis 30 yard line, Dick Buehler passed to Carideo for a twelve yard gain. Again Dick passed to Angelo, who avoided the Port Chester secondary and tied the game. With only a few minutes to play, Buehler tossed the pigskin to Tony Daniello who made a spectacular catch on the ten yard line. After two plays, halfback Buehler brought the ball over the goal line but fumbled, with Port Chester re- covering. Thus the battle ended in a l3-l3 tie. ln the forty-seventh annual tilt with New Ro- chelle, the Davisites were smothered by a more experienced squad, and lost l9-O. The week after, the Hilltop squad ended up the gloomy season by bowing to Edison Tech, 26-O. The valiant crew of the SCORE- BOARD SQUAD accomplished superhuman feats with their only reward the remarks of the football spectators who didn't bother to look at the board anyway, These men braved the perils of wind and cold, up in the altitude of the cold black steel death-trap which marked their "haven."
