On This Day In History | 1930

October 18, 2010

One year removed from falling to St. Paul’s 12-0, Roddy Myers led the Blue and White to victory over their Ivy League rival, scoring all 3 touchdowns in the Brook’s 21-0 victory.  His 1st came on the opening play from scrimmage when he took the ball 70 yards down the field for the score.  Then, still clinging to a 7-0 edge in the 3rd quarter, Myers crossed the goal line twice more in the frame to seal the win.  With the victory the Brookers improved to 4-0, having outscored their opponents 77-0.

When St. Paul’s had the ball in their possession they ran up against a Blue and White stone wall, and found they could not puncture it.  On the defense they found that great gaping holes were being cut in their line by the powerful forward wall of the Stony Brook team, and that the backs were dashing through for long gains.
