Redskins last period rally for a 7-3 win

September 29, 1935 ... The Boston Redskins opened up the 1935 campaign by defeating the Dodgers of Brooklyn, 7 to 3 at Fenway Park, flashing an accurate aerial game early in the final period that covered 65 yards in four plays.  Behind 3-0 as a result of a Ralph Kerchival field goal, made on the last play of the first half, the Redskins got underway late in the third period.  After an exchange of punts, Bill Shepherd tossed a pass Charlie Maline who raced to midfield.  Another pass, Shep to Cliff Battles go the ball to Brooklyn's 31.  Shepherd then ran nine yards, and with second and one, faked a run and Flavio Tosi in the end zone, right under the nose of Dodger safety Stan Kostka.  For the first half Brooklyn was the better team, but when it counted in the second half, the Redskins were a better team.
