Only five I-M football games
were played on Friday and one
on Saturday morning, but three
of these games proved to be top
notch thrillers.
In the feature game of the
weekend, two unbeaten teams,
Delta Upsilon and Phi Kappa
Psi, clashed to determine the
League II championship with the
DU's coming out on top by a
15-14 score.
THE GAME, which was prob
ably the cleanest and well played
in the I-M circuit to date, proved
to be a slam-bang affair with the
score all tied up at the end of
regular playing time.
Each team then got the ball for
four downs to determine the win
ner by yardage measurement and
in this extra period the hot DU's
proved to have just enough to
out-down the Phi Psi's.
THE LOSERS crossed the
double stripe twice and con
verted each time for their 14
points and then were held score
less for the remaining t n r e e
frames by the stout DU wall and
tight secondary defense.
The winners picked up six
points in the first quarter and
two in the second, due to a safety
but still trailed 14-8 at the half
way mark.
The winners then pushed across
the game tieing tally late in the
third stanza and were held with
out a point in the fourth.
Tom Tolen passed and ran his
team to the victory while Bob
Bachman and Duane Rankin
were the stars for the losers.
ALPHA TAU Omega A won its
fourth win in five starts by blast
ing the Sigma Nu team 45-6. The
victors ran up a 19-0 lead in the
first quarter and then went on
