On This Day In History | 1937

October 23, 2010

46-0.  The score of the prevous season’s meeting with Port Washington’s football squad was branded onto the memories of the Blue and White gridders.  So as the Brook welcomed Port to campus they had revenge on their minds.  The Brookers got on the board first in the opening quarter after Hank Neber intercepted an errant pass.  On the ensuing drive Tom Redard connected with Howard Riedel for a 40 yard touchdown that vaulted the Blues into the lead.  It was the only score of the game as the home team’s line proved impenetrable, enabling the boys to erase the memory of last year’s whipping, 7-0.

When the teams left the field, Stony Brook considered itself well avenged for the defeat last year.
