Eddie Smith again played the consistent ball that he has been known for, during his three years at Mamaroneck. With his tricky change of pace, Smith was always good for a substantial gain in yardage. Iolly Woodbridge was the brains of the grid outfit this season and, though rarely taking the pigskin, could always be counted on for a vital block or tackle. In addition, his educated toe came in handy for the many extra points. Charlie Albert, Don Baker, Buddy Berkeley, Mike Bruno, Willie Campbell, George Cheung, Tony Da- tino, Luke DiRuzzo, Carmelo DiCiccio, George Feng- ler, Red Kennedy, Norm McClendon, Ioe Montanaro, Iim Pascale, Dave Replogle and Louis Santoro all turned in superlative performances throughout the campaign. The class of ,49 saw something new added to the Hilltop grid schedule. The first night game in the history of Mamaroneck, and of all Westchester, took place at Manchester Field on October I5 against Pel- ham. It was a successful experiment and will, there- fore, probably be repeated next year. With the help of strong overhead lights and a yellow pigskin, the many spectators in the crowded stands were not dis- appointed. The curtain raiser on the 1948 grid season proved to be a good one for the Tigers, as they ran through, over, and all around Albert Leonard's eleven to the tune of 25-o. Petruzzo was high scorer for the day, and he accounted for nineteen points, three TDs and one extra point. The big halfback tallied first, fol- lowed by Fengler. oth attempts for the extra point were fruitless. Petruzzo then proceeded to add two more scores and one extra point, on a buck through Mr. John Sullivan Jay-Vee Coach Center' Mamaroneckls ' g r i d squad lost only one g a m e throughout the entire season, and even this one was a close decision. Isaac Young was the only eleven to snatch a victory from the Tigers' hands, as they squeezed by with a 13-6 triumph. Again it was Ioe Petruzzo who ac- 6 counted for the lone Hilltop rally. Ayers and Huber took care of Young's scoring chores. Late in the fourth period, Mamaroneckis second stringers started a scor- ing march down the field, and went as far as their opponents' 30-yard line when the Hnal whistle blew with Young still ahead, 13-6. Victory number two came to the Tigers at the night game as they swamped the men from Pelham, 25-7. Georgie Fengler accounted for the first score of the contest, and Woodbridge split the uprights for the extra point. Eddie Smith took care of the second tally on an end run, but the attempted conversion failed this time. Fengler then added his second score of the day to make the count I9-0. At this point, Riciarelli accounted for the one and only Pelham tally. Petruzzo put in his assistance as he made the final touchdown of the game. The try for the extra point was in vain, and the Tigers stayed ahead, 25-7. The only serious injury of the season occurred during this contest as Norm McClendon broke his leg in a pileup. Another 25-7 score constituted the Tigers' third vic- tory, this time over Roosevelt. Smith took care of the lirst tally on a pass into the end zone by Petruzzo, with Woodbridge adding the conversion. Willie Camp- bell accounted for the second TD, and Smith came through with his second score later in the contest, Woodbridge again converted. Petruzzo bucked over for the last Tiger tally. 40-31 was the score of the touchdown-packed Gor- ton game at Manchester Field, with Petruzzo account- ing for two, and Smith, Fengler, Kennedy and Che- ung, each one tally. Woodbridge put in an excellent performance, for he converted successfully three times out of five tries. Port Chester provided win number five for the strong Tiger gridders, and Petruzzo played one of the best games of his high school career, figuring in every one of the four touchdown plays and three successful extra point attempts. He took care of the final score, going through center, and then passed to Bruno for the conversion. Galloping Ioe skirted end for the second tally, then heaved one to Smith for the third. He also accounted for the last score and its extra point. Mamaroneck's ancient rival, New Rochelle, was the underdog by a 27-6 decision in the last game of the season. Petruzzo played all out as he scored three times and figured in the same number of successful conversions. Fengler took care of the other Tiger tally, while Bruno and Smith each pulled down extra point passes. Iohn Sullivan's Iay-vees had a record of one win, a tie, and four losses. Iona provided the victory.

Ralph Valle of Mamaroueclc takes a healthy poke at one as Pete Abatte waits "ou deck." Baseball Squad 1949 baseball on the Hilltop will have to do a great deal of good hitting and fielding to better last yearis record of seven WIAA wins and no defeats. At gradu- ation, the Tigers lost such stalwarts as first sacker lack Sanborn, catcher Howie Braithwaite, and infielders Bill Carullo, Ambrose Zen, George Yost, Ralph Valle, Pete Abbate, Iud Gibbs, and Steve Champion. But, perhaps the greatest loss to the squad is hurler Bill Bender, who took care of the majority of pitching assignments last year. There is little trouble as far as the outfield is con- cerned, with Ioe Petruzzo returning to his old posi- tion. Assisting him will be Iolly Woodbridge, Bruce Brakenhoff, and Ioe Caparrotta, all coming back with '48 baseball letters. Bill Shaw, veteran catcher, will again take his posi- tion behind the plate, with Nick Condro helping. The pitching staif, though large, contains much green ma- terial, except for Mouse Bruno, George Van Valken- burg, and Ioe Giordano. Every position in the infield remains open, for last year's graduates held down all posts. Returning hope- fuls are Warner Herlyn and Lou Preston. Coach Harry Harrison does not have many worries about the squadis hitting this season. Petruzzo will be counted on to be the big gun of that department, as he has during the past two years, while Shaw has also proved himself able at bat. And players Wood- bridge, Brakenhoff, and Caparrotta all provided Tiger power during the last season. Up and coming men of the 1948 Iay-vee squad are expected to fill many of the positions left vacant by graduation. Among the aspirants are George Feng- ler, Ray Simonsen, Pete Soper, and Frank Viola. Last year the Bengals ran off with the WIAA East- ern Division Championship, only to lose to Yonkers of the Western Division twice. Each time the cham- pionship tilts were lost by one run, 5-4 and 6-5. Bender pitched brilliantly in both games. 57
