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.
