PUG RENTNER'S 46-YD RUN

FOOTBALL AT FENWAY  
The Redskin's clinch second place,
beating Brooklyn 13-3

December 2, 1934 ... Everything favored the Redskins at Fenway Park in the final game of the season with a victory that secured second place and kept Brooklyn in third.  The Redskins backs uncorked two fine pass plays, one for a first period touchdown and several long runs, particularly on intercepted passes.  For Brooklyn the star was Ralph Kerchival.  He outpunted the Redskin kickers, played a great game at halfback and kicked a 44-yard field goal.

The first Boston score started with the ball on their own 49-yard line.  Hank McPhail bounced through for four yards.  From the Brooklyn 45, Hokuff hit Cliff Battles on the dead run at the 30 and tight-roped the sideline for a touchdown.  In the second period Battles fumbled the snap from center, giving Brooklyn the ball on the Redskins' 38-yard line, and setting the stage for Kerchical's field goal.  The game clinching touchdown for the Redskins came halfway through the fourth period and started when Pug Rentner intercepted a Brooklyn pass, running it back 46 yards to the Dodger's 34-yard line.  McPhail hit Flavio Tosi who was tackled on the two-yard line.  Then McPhail, on his second try, took it in for the touchdown.  In between touchdowns, Battled got off a fine 19-yard run and Rentner took one for 41 yards, almost scoring.  Turk Edwards notched a pass interception and raced 45 yards.  Each time, however, Brooklyn held their ground and averted another score.
