GRAND RAPIDS UNION 7
The Tigers opened up the season with a 2I-7 victory.
Joe Christie had perfect blocking and scored first. Joe
got the second T.D. also. Willie McCarty, a Junior, was
forced to carry it over twice as a penalty called back
the first one. Ted "The Toe" Halasinski kicked three per-
fect extra points.
BAY CITY 20
Bay City darkened the first home game of the season.
The Tigers were within five yards of the goal twice but
couldn't put the ball over. Namon and Willie Smith
made two thrilling runs of 68 and 90 yards respectively.
But, one was called back. The game ended as the Tigers
were on the Woltpack's two-yard line.
With the first half a hard fought defensive game, the
end came swiftly and suddenly. Holland capitalized on ,
a Tiger fumble and scored first, but the try for extra i
point was wide. A long pass from Bob Slezak to Cliff
Cummings set up the Tiger T.D. and Ted Halasinski scored
the tying touchdown and kicked the game-winning extra
GRAND RAPIDS SOUTH O
Long drives that covered 77, 86, and 3l yards were the
scoring opportunities that the Tigers capitalized on as
Vern I-Iosko, Willie McCarty and Ted Halasinski each
gained more yardage than South's combined effort. Ted
plunged over first. Joe Christie got the second on a
fourteen-yard run. Vern Hosko ended the scoring with a
thirtylone yard dash.
