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
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.

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.

Despite the tact that Coach George
Erb had one of the best balanced teams
in years, his nine had to meet unusually
formidable competition. The Maroon's
opening l6-4 rout of Lower Merion gave
evidence ot a top-notch nine, but de-
feats by Norristown and Haverford jol-
ted hopes tor a championship.
