BOSTON'S NFL EAST CHAMPS
Former Duquesne guard
Pittsburgh to an opening day victory
September 13, 1936 ...
The Boston Redskins opened the National League professional football season today under a wilting summer sun by losing 10-0 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. George Kakasic, a
substitute left guard and kicker accounted for nine of Pittsburgh’s points. Kakasic scooped up Ed Smith’s fumble on the Redskins’ 26 near the end of the half and ran it in for the only touchdown of the game. He accounted for three more points with a field goal, in the final quarter
after the Pirate attack stalled on the Redskins 22 yard line.
