Vollrath, Kennedy, Daniels jnntbal Kern bags a Panther K i l VICTORY OVER HAVERFORD by a 2l-6 count started the Abington eleven off in fine style. Herman Dan- iels starred on the offense, while Cap- tain Bill Ambler, who blocked a punt, stood out on defense. CHESTER DOWNED BY ABINGTON although the Ghosts had to come from behind to win, 28-13. Behind beautiful blocking by Ed Vollrath, Sonny Wash- ington and Herman Daniels, backs, were able to scamper off for long runs. LOWER MERION DEFEATED AT ARDMORE by an Abington team for the first time in twelve years, l3-O. John Easton broke loose for 50 yards in the third quarter, and Washington, led by Chick Earnest and Charlie Kern, scored again in the fourth session. GHOSTS SMOTHER VALLEY FORGE under a 44-6 count. Washington had his best day, scoring four touchdowns. The substitutes held the Cadets to one tally. UPPER DARBY SHADED in the closest game of the year so far, l3-l2, on the losers' field. Dan Ken- nedy's educated toe provided the mar- gin of victory. Both Easton and Wash- ington shook loose for long runs as usual. FRIENDS CENTRAL TROUNCED by the Ghosts, 38-6, on the winners' field. Lou Vollrath's recovery of a fumble on the kick-off started the team off, and after the second quar- ter, the Junior Varsity took over, scoring almost at will. GHOSTS HELD BY PANTHERS in their annual Thanksgiving Day tus- sle 'to a scoreless tie, O-O. Although continually pushing into Cheltenham territory, the Ghosts were unable to score. With the whole eleven fighting hard, John Easton and Pete DiPalan- tino played standout games. ABINGTON SUBDUES RADNOR to take the Big-Six Championship for l94O. Although the score was not so close, the play was-but the Ghosts won, 26-13. Beautiful kicking by Ray Uccelletti kept the Raiders at bay Bill Ambler blocked a kick and Lou Vollrath recovered a fumble to set up two scores. Augie Penecale gave his best performance of the year.
