H. S. were still enjoying their lengthy summer vacation, about forty boys headed, purposefully but reluctantly, towards the clubhouse at the Athletic Field for their first official practice. Under the guidance of head coach Charles Jarvis and his able assistant john Gondek, the team held double practices for two weeks during very warm weather, but soon our team began to take shape. Although the season was prophesied by many as a poor one, the team proved to be a success in winning seven out of nine games, while losing to Stamford and Hillhouse. ANSONIA-20, LEAVENWORTH-O Led by their able co-captains, "Bernie" Odoy and Bill McAllister, the untested A. H. S. team took the field against a poor Leavenworth team. With McAllister providing the punch with his two touchdowns, which earned him the honor, "back of the week," Ansonia downed Leavenworth with some strong line defense which starred pint-sized Collins and two rough tackles in the persons of john Cooke and "Big Sam" Olenechuk. Ansonia's third touchdown came by way of a Lawlor to Ahern aerial. ANSONIA-13, SHELTON-7 With one win under their belts, Ansonia took the field against Shelton in the first night game of the season. A crowd of 4,000 fans saw Marty Lawlor score Ansonia's first T.D. and co-captain "Bernie" Odoy add the winning touch- down. Co-captain Bill McAllister, Hugh Collins, "Chuck" Peters, and "Sam" Olenechuk were the big guns for the A. H. S. ANSONIA-9, CROSBY-0 This was the do-or-die game of the season. If Ansonia could win this game the season might prove to be a success- ful one. This game was all "jack" Karlok. His electrifying 50 yard touchdown run and continual lengthy gains, broke the backs of the CrQsby players. Also starring in this game were "Mike" Egan, "Chuck" Peters, Hugh Collins, and "Bucky" Glenn. ANSONIA-0, STAMFORD-12 Placing a 3-0 record on the line, the forces of Coach jar- vis met a strong Stamford eleven on a cold October night in a game witnessed by 4,500 fans who were sorely dis- appointed at the outcome of the game. Although defeated by two touchdowns, Ansonia outplayed Stamford and beat them physically with strong line play which featured Hugh Collins, Bill McAllister, Sam Olenechuk, John Cooke, Mike Egan, "Chuck" Peters, and "Bernie" Odoy. ANSONIA-7, HAMDEN-6 Sporting a 3-l record, the charges of Coach Jarvis took the field against Hamden on a rainy Friday afternoon. Al- though Hamden took an early lead of 6-0, late in the third quarter a Lawlor to McAllister touchdown pass gave An- sonia at least a tie. Then came the crucial moment, with Vellturo holding, Cichon split the uprights with the win- ning point. A defensive standout was Hugh Collins. ANSONIA-34, TORRINGTON-14 Led by the swift running of Tony Vellturo, the Ansonia football team rolled to a 54-14 victory over Torrington at Nolan Field. Vellturo was a busy bee all afternon as he scored three touchdowns in the Lavender's biggest offensive spurt of the season. Ansonia's first T.D. came on a one yard bolt by Vellturo. Minutes later Vellturo again scampered 15 yards to paydirt as Ansonia zoomed ahead 15-0. After the visitors sliced the deficit to 13-7 on a pass play from Kulas to Koplar, jackie Karlok, Lavender speedster, rumbled over from the four yard line for a 20-7 margin. Once again Ansonia scored as the alert Vellturo intercepted a Torrington pass and dashed 42 yards for a touchdown. Ansonia completed its scoring on a 17 yard bolt by Billy McAllister. With the Ansonia reserves in the game, Torring- ton scored on a 4 yard plunge by Koplar for the final score of the day. ANSONIA-18, DERBY-0 Highly favored Ansonia pounded out an 18-0 victory over rival Derby before 4,500 fans at Nolan Field. Sparked by Tony Vellturo and the timely passing of Marty Lawlor, Charley Jarvis' grid gang rolled to two first- half touchdowns to seal its sixth win of the campaign. The first Lavender six pointer was all Vellturo. After sprinting for 52 yards to the 9 yard stripe, Vellturo pocketed the remaining yardage on the ensuing play for a 6-0 ad- vantage. Lawlor set the stage for the second T.D. with a pass interception and capped it by pitching 25 yards to co- captain Billy McAllister for another Lavender T.D. and a 12-0 difference at the half. The Lavender didn't score again until the Hnal period when Bernie O'doy battered over from the four yard stripe for the final score of the evening. Sam Olenechuk, turning in one of his best performances of the season, joined the rib rattling Hugh Collins and Mc- Allister as the top Lavender defenders up front. HILLHOUSE-25, ANSONIA-15 Bowen Field was the same old boneyard to the high fly- ing hopes of another good Ansonia eleven. Hillhouse stacked up Ansonia 25-15 as it played one of its best games of the season. The main misfortune was the first period loss of Marty Lawlor, deft ball handler and passer. Hillhouse opened the scoring on a 62 yard T.D. run by Charlie Gray. Then after co-captain Billy McAllister capped rm 60 yard march with a four yard sweep for a 7-7 tie, the .Iarvismen allowed Johnny Daniels to go 85 yards on the following kickoff for a 15-7 Hillhouse edge, However the Lavender got six points when Tony Vell- turo, swift moving halfback, raced 47 yards to a T.D. on a handoff from Billy Hall to earn a 15-15 stalemate. It was Hillhouse the rest of the way as the Lavender, now minus John Cooke because of a second period injury, began to wilt. Hillhouse moved to the ten yard stripe, from where Charlie Gray cracked over for a 19-15 spread. After an Ansonia interception the Ac's proceeded to add the clincher as they moved 75 yards in 12 plays to the ten yard line, from where Gray again cracked over to complete the scoring with a 25-15 Hillhouse victory, ANSONIA-52, NAUGATUCK-7 Employing some eye arresting T.D. tours to chew off yardage in big gulps, Ansonia's well balanced football team rolled to a 52-7 victory over Naugatuck to cap a surprising 7-2 campaign before 5,500 spectators at Nolan Field. Tony Vellturo, a late season shocker to the opposition, was the back breaker to the Greyhounds. The senior speed- ster raced through the bewildered Greyhounds on an electri- fying 75 yard touchdown tour on the opening kickoff, Late in the same period Vellturo gobbled up a Marty Lawlor screen pass and went 45 yards to paydirt to make it 15-0 and offset a second quarter Naugatuck T.D. by Ray Marinko on a pass play. It was co-captain Billy McAllister who finished the Grey- hounds for keeps in the Lavender dominated second half. "Mighty Mac" climaxed a 45 yard march with a one yard bolt to make it 20-7 and then again hit paydirt as he rum- bled 24 yards following an interception by the alert co- captain Bernie O'doy. johnny "Bucky" Glenn kept the scoring ball rolling in the closing minutes of play. The double duty center, a wing- back defensively, speared an ill fated Doiron aerial on his 58 and raced 62 yards unmolested to the payoff stripe. Coach Jarvis cleared the bench in the fading minutes with the jayvees holding Naugy scoreless. ,'s u rf 0 v 'V , ' A ot T 5 Q " . Q' ' ' ' ' , 3- 5, ,A I I . i 3 A x .
