"A bunch of determined Alumni
football players turned out Satur
day at Memorial Stadium to try
and win their first All SporU Day
game from the Varsity.
They accomplished the feat in
tine fashion and thus spoiled
coach Pete Elliott's opener.
The grads posted one touch
down in the first period and scored
the clincher in the final period for
their 14-0 upset win.
This game ended 20 days of
hard practice for the varsity.
They couldnt ever seem to get
sustained drive going as the var
sity lost the ball eight times on
Approximately five thousand
people witnessed the contest that
featured the seventh annual All
Sports Day on a cold-rainy day.
The Alumni got their first tally
half way through the first period
when John Bordogna scored from
yard out on a fourth down plunge.
The drive started when Carl
Samuelson, who weighed in at 290
pounds, recovered a fumble by
Gordon Englert. On the next play
Bob Reynolds, a Grand Island
boy and All-American performer
rushed to the two yard line setting
it up for Bordogna.
Sam Vacanti, who led several
Alumni attacks, converted and the
Alumni led 7-0.
The rest of the first half failed
to furnish any real scoring threats.
After the intermission break, the
Alumni continued with their stout
defense and held heir own on of
fense. Then in the final period George
Ghode, former Lincoln High back,
recovered a Varsity pitchout on the
29 yard line. From there Jon Mc
Williams, who recently signed a
professional contract, made a leap
ing catch of a fourth down Bor
dogna pass for a first down deep
in Varsity territory.
Rex Fischer, a member of the
1955 team, swept the Varsity end
for seven yards and the second
touchdown. Don Strasheim, a mem
ber of last year's coaching staff,
threw the key block.
Vacanti again converted.
The Varsity never had a real
serious scaring drive going. Dar
rell Pinkston and Bennie Dillard
both performed well In the Var
The Alumni, about 55 in all, were
still going strong at the finish as
Vacanti carried the ball for an 11
yard gain on the last play.
Some of the Alumni stalwarts in
cluded Moon Mullen, Ted Doyle,
Tom Novak, Vic Schleich, Ralph
Damkroger and many others.
Besides the football game, five
other Comhusker teams participat
ed. The baseball game between Of
futt Air Force Base and the Busk
ers had to be postponed on ac
count of the cold-rainy weather.
Nebraska's golf team opened up
the day's activities by winning
their match from Iowa State 11-7.
Jack Moore won medalist honors
as he shot an 82 on the Lincoln
Country Club Course. Moore de
feated Don Webber (87) of the Cy
