FOOTBALL AT FENWAY  
The Terriers barely escape, refusing a field goal,
but then winning 14-7 over N.Y.U.

November 15, 1952 ... Deadlocked 7-7 with less than four minutes left in the game, Boston University refused three points and was fortunate to come back with a touchdown as the final period ticked away at Fenway Park.  The Terriers were lethargic and uninspiring and almost wound up in a tie with their less than formidable opponent.  Titus Plomeritis broke the stalemate with a 14-yard field goal in the waning moments, but there was an N.Y.U. offside penalty.  Taking the penalty would give the Terriers a first down on the one yard line.  Coach Buff Donelli decided to accept the penalty but the first play resulted in a penalty on B.U.  An illegal shift put the ball back 15 yards to the 16-yd line.  Sophomore Phil O'Connell hit Tom Lavery with a 15-yard pass on second down to put the ball back on the 1-yd line, where Mario Mauriello banged it home.  Plomeritis banged home the extra point and the game was won, 14-7 as time ran out.  Harry Agganis and many of seniors sat out the finale.
