Arms 13 Deerfield Academy I. V. 0 On October 20 the Arms team ioumeyed to Deerfield Academy where in the pouring rain and mud they defeated the Iunior Varsity 13-0. The first touchdown was scored after Gerry carried the ball 70 yards to the 7-yard line. On the next play Arms fumbled. the ball rolled over the goal line. and Arms recovered for a touchdown. Gerry's fine kicking with a slippery ball and the playing of Pratt, Doore, and Tomasini were outstanding. Stockbridge 20 Arms 7 A strong and definitely physically superior Stockbridge "Aggie" team was victorious over Arms on October 28. Stockbridge scored twice in the first half and once in the last, while Arms scored late in the second half. Arms was unable to gain any yardage through the heavy Stockbridge line during the first half. In the second half Arms took to the air, scoring one touchdown and gaining over 100 yards through completed passes. Arms 14 Huntington 12 On Friday, November 4. the Arms team joumeyed to Huntington where they defeated Huntington High School 14-12. The game proved to be a rough one. and tempers flared up freely on both sides in the last quarter. Arms scored first on an end run by Pratt, but Huntington retumed the next kick off 80 yards for a touchdown. Gerry scored the second Arms touchdown, and his two successful points after touchdown proved to be the winning margin. Deerfield High 21 Arms 18 The final game of the year was played in the "Onion Bowl" at South Deer- field on Armistice Day. Although Arms was defeated 21-18, the game fur- nished many thrills which will long be remembered. This contest was broad- cast over the radio. and many listeners commented on the unusual thrills. South Deerfield scored first on a reverse early in the second quarter. Shortly after the second half opened, Pratt intercepted a Deerfield pass and sprinted 55 yards for a touchdown. Deerfield scored twice in the third quarter. With the score 21-6 against them. Arms came back with a beautifully completed forward-lateral play. Gerry to Marble to Giguere, with the play going 65 yards for a touchdown. A few minutes later the most unusual play of the season was completed. Boron was carrying the ball around Arms' right end when Gerry came up from the secondary apparently to tackle the runner, but instead he dumb-founded the crowd by snatching the ball from Boron and running 50 yards for a touchdown. With time running short. Deerfield froze the ball to prevent any more scoring opportunities for Arms. On December 9 football letters were given out in assembly. The following received varsity letters: Co-Captains Harper Gerry and Ioseph Tomasini. Arthur Tumer. Francis Stone. Iames Rice, Everett Coutu. Alvin Pratt, Harold Mills. Howard Marble.

Arthur Tumer and Henry Giguere received honorable mention, which is very good considering the large number from which they were chosen.

F0 DTBALI. aqa Fort The call for football candidates was issued on September 8, and about twenty boys reported. Six lettermen were available from the 1937 squad, these being: Co-Captains Harper Gerry and Ioseph Tomasini, Harold Mills. Henry Giguere, Howard Marble, and Francis Stone. Following is a summary of the games played: Arms 7 Greenfield 0 Arms opened her season on September 30 with the Greenfield High School Seconds. This game was played shortly after the famous New England hurri- cane of September 21, 1938, and many of the boys worked for the New England Power Company the week before the game. Because of this, the team had only four different running plays to use during the game. The only touchdown of the game came in the second quarter when Henry Giguere scored on an end run alter Harper Gerry had returned a punt from midfield to the 20-yard line. Turners Falls 6 Arms 0 On October 7 a hard-fighting Arms eleven was defeated by the Turners Falls Seconds in a well-played game. Arms dominated the play in the first half, having the ball within Tumers' 10-yard line twice, but failing to score. A series of completed passes in the third quarter brought about the winning touchdown for Turners Falls. The Arms team showed great improvement throughout the game. Deerfield High 19 Arms 6 The following Wednesday, October 12, brought forth Arms' second defeat of the year, as Deerfield High School scored a 19-6 victory. The first score of the game came in the second quarter when Mills intercepted a Deerfield pass and carried the ball to the two-yard line where Giacapuzzi scored on the next play. lust before the half ended, Deerfield completed a pass for a touchdown and scored again in the third period when an Arms pass was intercepted. Harper Gerry was unable to play because of a knee injury received in the Tumers Falls game. y-Two

BASKETBALL Easily the highlight of the 1938-1939 basketball season was the surprising 24-21 victory which Arms captured from South Deerfield High in the opening contest of the Hampshire League. Arms had won three straight games before this, all non-league, but was credited with little chance against an experienced Deerfield five who many believed were the potential league champions. Deer- field led at half time 13-9, but Arms came back in the second half to wrest the lead away from their opponents and to stay out in front by a narrow margin during a thrilling last quarter. It was the first basketball victory over South Deerfield in many years. The Arms team kept up the good work by taking over Orange in the next game 25-20. These league wins were especially pleasant from the standpoint of the two previous lean league campaigns. Hopes soared for a successful showing in the league on the evidence of these victories. but a machine-like Hopkins team dropped Arms in the next game 24-13, and Smith Academy followed with a crushing defeat. 57-15. Arms rebounded from these defeats to pin Amherst down at home, 31-15. Smith School defeated Arms at Northamp- ton, 33-23, and South Hadley came out on top 34-29 in a wild game at home to finish the first half of the league season. Arms finished in a tie for fourth place with South Hadley and South Deerfield, all with three wins and four defeats. The second half of the league schedule proved a disappointment. Arms had only one victory to show for six defeats.
