City, SIAC, and State Championships were gathered on the hilltop this year by the football team. To win all these honors they had to complete a ten game schedule without a defeat. The Panthers opened their season with an easy win over Barret of Henderson, 34-O. The team displayed the power in that game that was to carry them all through the season. Traveling next to Indianapolis, they played Cathedral and showed fine form by defeating them 20-O. Gerstmeyer of Terre Haute proved to be the Panthers' stiff- est early season competition. Taking advantage of a Hilltopper fumble, they were the first team to score on the Reitz eleven. The Panthers won by a 20-6 margin. At New Albany the Panthers gave a sturdy Bulldog team a 47-6 walloping. Coming home to play a hepped-up Bosse Bulldog squad, the Blue and Gray gridders eked out a I4-7 victory in a game that was played hard all the way. Mater Dei, a young school trying to engineer a triumph over the Hilltoppers for the first time, was leading 7-6 at half time. This was the first and only time during the entire season that the Panthers were behind. In the second half they recovered, and wound up with a l9-7 victory over the Wild- cats. Highly touted Muncie Central, undefeated leaders of the Northern Conference, traveled to Evansville to meet the Blue and Gray. Last half touchdowns by Jim Byers and Bob Martin paced the southern defenders in a convincing I3-0 victory over the Bearcats. The Vincennes Alices were the next to fall, 44-7, in a game that featured many long touchdown plays. Don Siscel's 75 yard jaunt and Larry Stofleth's 85 yard punt return were the highlights of the game. Memorial's Bengals ventured to the West Side only to receive a 40-O trouncing at the hands of the Panthers. End Bob Fisher caught two TD passes to set the determined pace for the Blue and Gray. Central's strong Golden Bears were the last hurdle for a perfect season. Rolling up a 27-O triumph, Fred Russell's 75 yard touchdown run in the opening minutes was one of the many bright spots, Don Siscel, playing his last high school game, showed fine form as he scored twice for Reitz.
