ln a return match with Pratt, the booters managed to squeeze out
a l-l tie. Goalie Ray Boffardi scored his only shutout of the season
in the final game against Queens College, 2-O.
As coach of the team, Rev. Joseph Browne, C.M. did a standout
job. l-le was handicapped by a lack of experienced personnel, and met
A " an the situation by molding a tight defensive club. Fullbacks Jack Kaiser
.exi ' and Jim Szabo along with halfback Deery gave Boffardi plenty of pro-
Q , tection in the nets. Bernie Tansey and Jack Reddy, both lacking pre-
h ' , vious experience, were a great help to the team along with rough and
hard-fighting Dan Finn.
With eight members of the starting lineup and some of the re-
serves due back next fall, Father Browne should have a sound team.
Plenty of defense and very little offense characterized the soccer club this year.
Lacking experience and a scoring punch, the booters compiled a record of two wins,
five losses and one tie.
They scored only seven times in their eight games, being held goalless on four
occasions. Three men did all the scoring, Captain John Deery and Forward Claude
Dragten each scored three times while freshman Bernie Keegan dented the twines for
the other goal. However, the opposition 'tallied only eleven times.
The team opened the season with a win over Brooklyn College, 2-l, but then
dropped their next contest to Pratt in the final ten seconds of an overtime by a 3-2
Count. ln their next four games, the Redmen failed to score, losing to Columbia,
Panzer, Queens College and City College. The first three games were l-O scores while
the last was 3-O.
