FOOTBALL AT FENWAY
The Redskins trounce the Cardinals
October 22, 1933 ...
In a game that packed all the points into the second period, and most of the thrills in the final minutes, the Redskins defeated the Cardinals, 10 to 0 at Fenway Park. The win broke their second place eastern division tie with Brooklyn, who was beaten by the
Giants. Only once did the visitors have possession of the ball beyond midfield in the first half, and only one time in the third period. In the final period however, Chicago moved the ball beyond midfield, but each time the result was an intercepted pass.
The Boston scores were well earned, with Cliff Battles fighting his way over for one touchdown, and Jim Musick kicking a 26-yard field goal. The first period was nothing more than a punting contest for each team, but in the second quarter Musick tossed a
pass to Cliff Battles who made his way to the Cardinal 19-yard line. A penalty netted five yards, two rushes gained just one yard, and it was third down, four to go on the 13-yard line. Battles burst to the five, was knocked to his knees, picked himself up and hurtled over the
goal line. Just before the half, with the ball on the Cardinal's 15 yard line, and time running out, the Skins had to go for a 26-yard field goal. With Apsit holding, Musick put it right down the middle. In the third period, Boston moved the ball twice, only to have the
ball intercepted. In the fourth period, Boston intercepted four passes.
