IntraHall Football

May 30, 2013

Interhall Football teams apparently used to play a “tougher” schedule, in the old days. I found this article from the SCHOLASTIC, in the fall of 1951...

The Morrissey Hall football team traveled to Michigan City, Indiana, last Sunday and took on the State Prison team in an exhibition game. Morrissey racked up 19 points in the first half and coasted in the rest of the way, the final count being 19-6. End Don Zech took a pass from quarterback Marty Vieth in the opening quarter and scored on a play that covered 20 yards. Before the quarter was over, Morrissey had its second touchdown on a one-yard plunge by back Joe Bandiera. A two-yard plunge by back Mike Walsh capped a Morrissey scoring drive in the second quarter. Vieth's placement split the uprights and Morrissey left the field at the half with a 19-0 bulge.  The two teams battled on even terms in the second half until, late in the fourth quarter, a Prison back made a spectacular 80-yard run to avert a  shutout.
